Predator

Deep in the jungle, several bodies have been discovered skinned and hanging from trees — although who or what could have done this is a mystery. Military covert specialist Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his team are called in to eliminate the threat, only to discover something far worse than they could ever have imagined — a hostile alien with cloaking technology, extensive combat skills, and a desire to hunt humans for sport.
 
Director John McTiernan’s 1987 classic Predator is the final film in our month-long celebration of bodybuilder, actor, and would-be governor Arnold Schwarzenegger!

“It supplies what it claims to supply: an effective action movie.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

“The most subversive action movie of the 1980s.” – William Bibiani, IGN

“It’s a masterpiece of disposability: just trashy enough to allow you to be ironic about it, but self-believing enough to be credible.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
