Dutch and a team of commandos have been sent into a Central American jungle to track down some missing airmen that were kidnapped by terrorists. By the time they get to the camp, the airmen have been butchered in a very violent fashion and the commandos retaliate on the terrorists' camp. After that's over, they wait for a helicopter to pick them up, but something strange begins to happen in the woods. It isn't long before the commandos start getting killed off and Dutch and a girl from the camp, Anna, are the only people left and fighting for their lives. But what they discover is too shocking for them to imagine. What's been killing them is the Predator, an alien that hunts rare species and make his trophies out of their skulls. And human beings are the new species he has discovered.
A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior.
Thia is one of the best movies of all time. It has a great cast that includes 2 governors and s a great supporting cast. I love all the one liners that Arnold has, they are cheese but have a comedic effect as well. If you have not seen this late 80s action masterpiece you have to see it. I have loved this movie since I was a kid. Plus it is definitely is the best of the series the other movies in the series do not match up in scope or plot. The recent avp movies are a far cry from the original. The effects and action are also great for its time. This movie is a must see for any person that calls themselves a movie buff. I think it is Arnold's best work. The jungle setting is the best place for a movie of this scope. It sets the people up to be the best "game" for the predators, and only Arnold can defeat him. This movie brings back fond memories of my childhood and watching "R" rated movies with my dad. Great movie to watch with your son.
Dutch is a commando whose sent to the jungles of Central America to find a cabinet minister, with his old friend Dillon and his team. But on arrival the team discover the remains of an entire USA army sent earlier to do the same job. Something has skinned them alive! Now the team must get to safety as something begins to pick them off one by one.
As a child I loved this movie and still to this day, it always brings fond memories, its basically a battle between man and alien in the jungle, a fantastic concept that works brilliantly. The director does an amazing job, in building tension, for the longest time the audience does not see what lurks in the darkness, only an outline of the creature. The action is just fantastic and the end battle is well worth the wait.
The second greatest Arnie movie. The movie, a rather pointless thing when you get down to it, has little of the provocative intelligence that was found in "Terminator." But at least it's self-propelling in terms of suspense and cheap thrills. [12 June 1987, Daily Datebook, p.78] A team of elite commandos, led by Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger), are dispatched into the Central American jungle, supposedly to rescue a Cabinet Minster presumed captured when his helicopter went down over enemy territory. Accompanied by CIA operative George Dillon (Carl Weathers), what they find is much more terrifying than any group of ruthless rebel guerrillas. Something invisible has been skinning the bodies of the Green Berets sent in previously as a covert surveillance team, and now the alien predator has begun to hunt Dutch's team. Predator is based on a script by screenwriters Jim and John Thomas. The story goes that the Thomases wrote the screenplay after hearing a joke that Rocky Balboa had run out of earthly opponents and would need to fight an alien if a Rocky V movie was going to be made. Hence, they came up with a script for Predator. Two sequels, Predator 2 (1990) (1990) and Predators (2010) (2010), have followed. A spinoff movie, AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004), that unites the Predator with the creature from Alien (1979) (1979), was released in 2004, followed by a sequel, AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem (2007), in 2007. Going with simple labels for their roles in the team, not including Dutch or CIA liaison Dillon, there are five members on Dutch's Search-and-Rescue team: (1) Billy (Sonny Landham), Scout and Tracker; (2) Mac (Bill Duke), Sergeant, 2nd in command/Assault; (3) Poncho (Richard Chaves), Demolitions Engineer/Translator (possibly medic); (4) Hawkins (Shane Black), Radio Operator (possible medic); and (5) Blain (Jesse Ventura), Heavy Weapon Support. Dutch and his team are an elite Search and Rescue team. Dillon is an old Vietnam war buddy of Dutch and he knows how good Dutch and his team are at their job. Dillon convinces General Phillips to hire Dutch's team to rescue a cabinet minister and his aide that were in a helicopter that crashed and are reportedly captured by Guerilla rebels in Val Verde. Dutch becomes suspicious of the mission almost immediately due to the location of the crash site. However, Dutch trusts his friend, Dillon. However, the mission turns out to be a front. After the disapperance of Hopper and his team, Dillion's superiors needed someone who could go in and completely annihilate the Guerillas and their Russian allies as they were gearing up for a major invasion. Dutch was furious with Dillon, because they "...are a rescue team, not assassins." which is exactly what the team was used for; an assassination. The Predator's reasons for skinning his victims and hanging them from trees are not explained in the movie. Dutch realizes that the Predator is a "hunter", and hunters will often gut and dress their prey while still in the field. Hunters are also known to cut off body parts, e.g., antlers, claws, fur, heads, etc., as trophies. Another reason that's been suggested is that the skinned bodies were deliberately left hanging as a warning to other humans in the area, either taunting them or letting them know that they are also being hunted. Another theory is that they do this to prey they consider unworthy to be trophies. As we see that when they actually take trophies, they simply rip the spinal cord out with the skull attached. But they leave the skinned bodies hanging upside down for others to find. It is never explained in this movie but it clearly shows that it is dependent upon the Predator's wrist-computer, because when Dutch fired his arrow, he damaged the computer disabling the Predators invisibility. However, in Predator 2, it is explained that the Predators possess technology that allows them to bend light around themselves, making near "perfect camouflage" in the form of active camouflage. The camouflage renders the object nearly transparent, just like a glass, and it works best when light passes straight through the object; as is the case with a glass, there is significant breaking of light near the edges of the object, and the camouflage works less optimally there. Furthermore, like glass, the object camouflaged by this technology is more noticeable as it moves than when it is motionless. In the very beginning of the movie, we see an alien ship fly past Earth with a smaller ship departing from it and then descending into our atmosphere. As such, we must conclude that the Predator is an alien being from another world. When exactly this arrival occurred is not established, but we do know that it was either many years ago and the Predator has been living here ever since, or various Predators have come and gone over the years, e.g., the jungle Predator may have visited the particular jungle in the past and perhaps returned to find new game in the same location, since Predators often visits places where there is intense heat and conflict. This is evidenced when Anna (Elpidia Carrillo) states that when she was young, men in her village would turn up missing, and they would sometimes find them butchered, without their skins, or much much worse. They would refer to the unknown perpetrator of these killings as the "demon who makes trophies of man" and she also added that it would only happen during the hottest of summers. This statement implies that either the Predator, or various other Predators, would come to Earth off and on over the years to hunt for a limited period of time, or there has only been a single Predator alone on Earth over the years. If there was a single Predator, the absence of people from Anna's village being continuously killed, all year around, including every summer, very hot or not, is likely due to him moving around to hunt in different areas so it does not attract too much attention in a single area. But it is likely that the Predator was only there for a limited time, as the more time it spends on Earth, the increased risk it would be discovered and his technology captured and exploited. Future films and stories show that the Predators come to hunt as part of a ritual but then return to their clan. It's reasonable to assume that while Dutch was making preparations, so was the Predator. The laser designator is part of the creature's mask, so its a fair assumption what we see is some form of laser used to sharpen (or prime, charge, poison or alter in some way) the blades which at the time were exposed from their sheath and glow red in response. The ability of the blades to widen is unrelated, and they wouldn't be much of a hunting tool/weapon if they were not adaptable to varying size of prey.
The creature may also have been tempering the blades to make them harder: tempering involves heating metal until it is red hot and cooling it rapidly, making it harder. The creature may have thought that it needed to do this for it's final showdown with Dutch. Although the Predator displays only three of his trophies onscreen, we witness the deaths of all six of Dutch's team members, leaving many wondering what happened to the remaining skulls. It's very likely the Predator collected trophies from all six victims, but we simply do not see this. The skull with the hole in it is said to be Poncho's, as he was shot (blasted) in the head. However, Poncho was shot in the left side of his head, while the hole is on the top of the skull, so this is either a goof or someone else. The others are unknown. One of them may have belonged to Billy, as we witness the Predator rip Billy's spine from his back and clean his skull, and the other was probably Dillon's as he put up the biggest fight besides Dutch and Billy. It has been speculated that one of the other skulls may have been Blain's since the Predator entered the squad's camp to retrieve his body.
Some believe the skull with the exit hole was Mac's because initially it appears that Mac is shot in the head. Also he is the only member of the team besides Dutch to injure the Predator. But in the brief shot of him laying on his back when Dillon finds him, you can clearly see he has a big hole in his chest, yet his head is unmarked. This is likely another continuity error in the movie, where the crew may had filmed a portion of this scene already and changed the setup for the second part, creating a goof. Some say that the angle from which he was shot created an exit wound through the back of his neck, and this, combined with the camera angle on his death, gives the appearance that the blood bursts from his head. However, when freeze-framing Mac's death scene, the blood can definitely be seen coming from Mac's forehead, not his neck. After his body falls down, his leg can be seen twitching, which also seems more compatible with brain trauma (because a shot through the chest and neck would likely sever the spinal cord, so the legs would no longer be able to receive nerve impulses from the brain). Also, it is possible that the three trophies that are displayed belonged to Jim Hopper's men. As we only see, three of Hopper's men strung up and skinned. Therefore the Predator may have kept Dutch's team mates' body parts somewhere else. No. The log was a counterweight for a spike trap Dutch had set up. He had cut wooden stakes and tied them to a log over the top of a ditch, and set a trip wire under it. The wire was tied to the log. The idea was that when the Predator tripped the wire, he'd be hoisted up and slammed into the spikes. When Dutch tried to sucker him into such a trap, he almost fell for it but saw the spikes at the last second and went around. Unfortunately for him, he stopped and stood over Dutch directly under the log counterweight, so Dutch tripped the trap himself, dropping the log on the Predator and disabling him. In the films, the official name of the characters are simply the "Predators". However, in the spinoff expanded universe consisting of comics, novels, video games and other media, the names "Yautja" and "Hish" are alternatively used. Dillon, Dutch and his team assumed that the guerilla rebels disemboweled and skinned Jim Hopper and his men, when in fact it was the Predator. It appears that not all of them were. Three of them were skinned and hung upside down, but they were not made in to trophies. It's possible that the Predator does this to victims it finds unworthy to be trophies. As it witnessed Dutch's small team manage to take out an entire platoon of soldiers, it may have found each of them to be worthy of trophies. Dutch asks Billy what happened to the rest of Hopper's men. Billy replies, "There's no sign, sir. They never left here. Hell, it's like they just disappeared." So it's possible the Predator took the rest as trophies. Perhaps they put up more of a fight than the other three. Something similar happens in Predator 2: when the Predator kills the Colombians, train car passengers and Jamaicans in the apartment, it only takes one trophy from the Colombians and none from the Jamaicans in the apartment. Yet it takes a trophy from Jerry and King Willy. It's unknown if the Predator took a trophy from Danny, as no mention is made of the state in which he was found, other than his heart was nearly cut in half and death was instantaneous. In the scene where King Willy meets the Predator, he draws a sword from the staff/cane he carries. Likewise, the Predator appears to extend its gauntlet blades in response. It's possible that a scene was supposed to follow where Willy and the Predator engaged in combat with their edged weapons and Willy would lose or the writers were just relying on the audience to figure out that part since Willy obviously doesn't survive. In the end, the Predator must have thought Willy to be a worthy opponent and walked off with his head, making a trophy out of his skull. The first person killed by the Predator's shoulder cannon (aka plasmacaster) was Blaine. He is shot from a far distance and hit in the back, which leaves an exit wound the size of a basketball in his chest. There is something of a continuity error at the moment he's hit; a splash of blood hits him in the neck and back of the head. One theory is that the Predator initially fired a different weapon that missed Blaine, and the Predator then switched to the shoulder cannon. In scenes where characters are supposed to be splashed with fluids like blood, a small gun of sorts (often nicknamed a "guacamole gun") is placed off camera and the fluid is shot onto the actor or stunt person. The production crew and director probably shot the blood onto Jesse Ventura thinking they'd shoot further enhancements to the scene showing a different action taking place.
Next killed was Mac, he is shot at close range in the chest (continuity shows him shot in the head, but his body is shown to have his head intact and his chest with the wound) the wound in his chest is relatively small, we never see the exit wound. Third hit with the cannon is Dillon. The Predator is perched on a tree branch and fires at Dillon, hitting him in the arm, completely severing it. Finally, Poncho is shot in the left side of the forehead and there seems to be very minimal damage, though he is killed, there is no exit wound, and there's minimal blood shown. It's possible that the predator, being so close to Pancho and wanting his skull for a trophy, reduced the power of the cannon so as to cause less damage.
Then Dutch is hit in the shoulder, if one watches the scene in slow motion, one can see that the blast hits the M16 assault rifle which Dutch is carrying, and the rifle can clearly been seen being blasted in to two separate pieces. There is a large burst of blood from his arm, he is knocked backwards, yet we see he has a minor three-inch cut on his arm. So it's possible he was hit in the shoulder by shrapnel. Some theories are as follows. (1) The Predator's weapon has different charged bursts. The longer it charges, the more powerful the damage. [Which is supported in many of the video games.] (2) The energy emitted from the cannon gathers more energy as it travels. The farther the distance it has to travel the more powerful it becomes. [Which is supported by the larger wounds being suffered when fired from a farther distance.] (3) Note, however, that the concept of what exactly constitutes the Predator creature was changed part-way through production. The original creature was shorter and more of a cross between an insect and a lizard that carried a spear gun-like weapon that can be seen hitting Blaine in the shoulder right before he turns and is shot in the back. Much of the film was shot with the original creature in mind, so this could explain the inconsistencies in the wounds. Simply put, yes, they can. In every Predator film, the Predators all have their masks removed for extended periods of time and seem to have no difficulty breathing, not to mention being able to howl, growl and roar. The Predator in Predator 2 was without its mask for almost the entire third act of the film, but it was also shown to have a small device it put over its mouth and took three or four deep breaths. After this, the device is never used again. It was likely because this Predator was severely wounded (after Harrigan shoots him with a shotgun several times) and was either having difficulty breathing or the mask held a sort of stimulant to keep him going until he was able to treat his wounds. Another point is when Harrigan is on board the Predator's ship at the end of Predator 2, he is able to breathe perfectly fine and the elder Predator didn't have its mask on. Therefore they were both breathing oxygen.
It seems to be a common misconception that the Predator's mask is used for breathing, yet no other part of their equipment shows to be air tanks (though this doesn't rule out the possibility that the mask uses some sort of air-filtration unit, seeing as how it appears to be airtight). The mask is part of the overall weapons unit and is connected to the plasma cannon, the targeting lasers (the three dots) and the forearm console (weapons, final bomb and the invisibility camouflage), and it is a head-worn control mechanism, similar to Iron Man's helmet controlling his weapons and flight, complete with a head-up display (HUD), which in the Predator's case, also entails imaging for alternative bands of electromagnetic radiation (including "light"). The mask has all kinds of additional features oriented around sensory enhancement. Dutch picks up a rock with the intention of finishing off the Predator, but it's obvious that the alien is already dying. He also reflects on the fact that the Predator is a living creature (which is now clearly in much pain) and ponders whether it's right to kill the creature out of vengeance. "What the hell are you?", Dutch asks rhetorically, and the Predator (not necessarily understanding the English language) mimics right back the rhythm of the question: "What the hell are you?" The Predator then starts to laugh (in a rhythm similar to Billy's) and to press some buttons on its wristband. Dutch realizes that the Predator has started a countdown to its own suicide and rushes to get as far away from there as quickly as possible. Suddenly the whole area explodes in a mushroom cloud, attracting the attention of the rescue helicopter (with Anna aboard). In the final scenes, the copter picks up Dutch and carries him out of the jungle. According to different sources like Melonfarmers and the Online-Filmdatenbank (OFDb), the first UK DVD releases of Predator feature the old German VHS version of the movie which had been cut in several scenes. As per Melonfarmers, this concerns the UK DVD releases from 2001 and 2003. All other UK DVD releases are uncensored, including the Blu-ray release. The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has nothing to do with the cuts, because the old 18-rated UK VHS had been released uncut without any censorship. Most likely it was a mistake by 20th Century Fox whereby they may have taken the wrong master. Approximately 37 seconds are missing in this release. a5c7b9f00b
