      Michael I love all the action scenes, especially the fight with Dutch and the Predator. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Líder7reynier Á Predator from 1987 give us a awesome action movie that make a lot fans to watch again and again a lot of times it is incredible 10/10. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review hardy c A film I never get tired watching. It remains a wonderful blend of sci fi and action, a melange of terror and adrenalin. The alien hunter ranks up there with Giger's Alien creature in the Monster Hall of Fame. And what film can boast having two future state governors in its cast? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Graham W Watched this again last night but first time at the Cinema on a big screen. First time was on video as never saw it in 1987. Still a brilliant film after all these years, great effects for the time and they still don't look naff like some recent films. Predator costume is fantastic and loved Arnie in surely his best film. Carl Weathers RIP was superb as well. Need to see Prey as not seen that yet and trailers look good. One of my favourite all time films ever! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Cody A One of my all time favorite movies. A great sci-fi action movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Ratyi M wtf is a sexual tyrannosaurus?

      Wendy Ide Times (UK) John McTiernan’s tight direction of the film’s bloody action makes up for the somewhat stilted performances. Aug 4, 2023 Full Review Michael Wilmington Los Angeles Times It's arguably one of the emptiest, feeblest, most derivative scripts ever made as a major studio movie. There's no need to do a Mad magazine movie parody of this; it's already on the screen. Apr 22, 2022 Full Review Michael H. Price Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com The emotional and physical vulnerability that Predator imposes on Schwarzenegger make this easily his best film of an often impressive round of muss-'em-up thrillers. Rated: 6/10 Apr 22, 2022 Full Review Michael Sragow San Francisco Examiner A brainless brawn extravaganza, a cat-and-louse saga that has little of the Conan movies' outlandishness and none of the compulsive drive and storytelling logic that made The Terminator a B-movie classic. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 3, 2023 Full Review Ian Bailey Ottawa Citizen Predator is probably the best movie ever made about a band of mercenaries being pursued through the jungles of Central America by a vicious extraterrestrial. Oct 3, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review With McTiernan’s craftsmanlike direction delivering action scenes that are easy to follow and, at times, simply wowing, Predator finds itself among the best of the big, R-rated action movies. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
