Amazon.ca

Rambo meets Alien in this terrific science-fiction thriller from 1987, directed by John McTiernan just a year before Die Hard made him Hollywood's most sought-after director of action-packed blockbusters. Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite squad of U.S. Army commandos to a remote region of South American jungle, where they've been assigned to search for South American officials who've been kidnapped by terrorists. Instead they find a bunch of skinned corpses hanging from the trees and realize that they're now facing a mysterious and much deadlier threat. As the squad is picked off one by one, Arnold finds himself pitted against a hideous alien creature that's heavily armed and wearing a spacesuit enabling the creature to render itself invisible. The title says it all in describing the relentless, escalating action that follows, maintained by McTiernan with an abundance of visual flair. The film's special effects are still impressive, and stunning locations in the Mexican jungles create a combined atmosphere of verdant beauty and imminent danger. The plot doesn't hold up to much scrutiny, but the movie's so exciting and tightly paced that its weaknesses seem irrelevant. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Blu-ray
Not only was this release of Predator billed as an extended version on amazon.ca (which obviously it wasn't); it was also one of my most anticipated Blu-Ray releases. And at first glance, it looked like it might be a winner. But alas--only a few minutes into the feature and it becomes painstakingly obvious that the people responsible for the technical aspects of the encode went *completely* overboard with their desire to apply DNR to the feature in order to artificially 'clean up' image noise and grain, while at the same time severely reducing the amount of detail in each frame and making the overall result look like it has been put through a meat-grinder (to use a phrase from the film itself) ;)

As stated on various forums and in other reviews, this practice is bound to be controversial, as some actually mistake this as being 'sharper' and more 'HD-like' (often when viewing on an 40-50 inch LCD sitting 3-4 meters back). But let me assure you; it *is not*. Compare it to older releases which were done _properly_ (like North By Northwest, Dr. No) and John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China (released around the same time as McTiernan's Predator), and you'll see what I mean.

All evidence that this movie has actually been shot on film is gone. It now resembles more an FPS game with waxy, unrealistic characters (just look at Carl Weathers' mustache!)

In short, this release is a complete travesty and an affront to the Blu-Ray format. FOX's customers deserve _a lot_ better than this. Liberally applying Digital Noise Reduction is an extremely quick'n'dirty way to 'spruce up' (in some people's eyes) a picture.

This has got to be one of the coolest monster movies ever made! The cast is great and the creature is THE coolest (technologically advanced) alien ever! Don't listen to the 2 bad reviews. One of those guys can't even spell a simple word like "cigar", I doubt he has much taste in movies if he can't pass high school english. It's ironic that all of the low scores (besides the two drop-outs) are given not because of the movie, but because of the poor DVD treatment Fox has given it so far. I can only hope that the upcoming Alien Vs Predator will be as good as it looks. It's been a long time coming and they had better not screw it up. Anyway, get this movie. Just make sure you wait for the spec. edition coming out July 23rd! Go Yautja!

Format: DVD
Predator is another classic Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie.Basically the
movie is about a group of commandos in the jungle of Central
America,who fall victim to a alien warrior.but this is no ordinary
warrior.One by one the commandos are dispatched,until only Dutch,played
by Arnie,is left.this movie is not for the squeamish.there are some
very gory scenes,as the soldiers are killed in gruesome ways.again
there are some great action sequences,leading to a the ultimate
showdown between Dutch and the Predator.there are also some good one
liners in the film,as with any Arnie movie.a very entertaining film

This release has become infamous. I won't talk about the movie, I am sure you already know about that. This Blu-ray version has been blasted with Digital Noise Reduction which has removed most detail from the picture, leaving it with a detail and texture similar to an early Pixar film. Check out the "Digital Bits" for more on this. We deserve a LOT better than this, and don't buy it until we start getting a lot better.

Andrew's Blu-ray Review - Action films just weren't the same when Arnie gave up one kind of showbiz to go into that other sort of showbiz: politics.
