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!

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.

When I saw this movie for the first time I become like possesed. It is simply beyond emagination. Where did Jim and John Thomas find the inspiration to create something like this?! And not just great script but the design of Predator is out of this world. I have watch this movie more than 30 times and it hasn't lost anything of it's power even it is 17 years old. Crew is also the-best-of-the best: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Sonny Ladham, Jesse Ventura... etc. For those who didn't watch this film yet (but I doub't it), this is the plot: Rescue tim is coming into the jungle to save the chief of CIA, but therorists are non the real threat - it is an alien head hunter who's coming to collect new trofies... Special effects are so advanced for that time that you could hardly belive that this film is that old. Only the final battle between Schwarzenegger and Predator is worth at least 10 watcing. And one information: Kevin Peter Hall who played Predator in both movies died in 1991.(and orriginaly Van Damme was the one who was selected to be Predator). Watch it on DVD (pleasure is even greater), or at least on VHS, just watch it!!!

Predator is such a fantastic action sci-fi thriller. It's a vintage Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and it's one of the reasons he is where is today.
The plot to Predator is simple enough to follow. Dutch(Schwarzenegger) has been called by Dillon(Weathers) to go to South America and find some missing officials. Dutch takes his squad of elite troops and he does just that. What they find though is skinned bodies of American troops. Slowly Dutch begins to lose his men until it becomes a mission of trying to get out of the jungle alive.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is simply fantastic in this film. This is one of the best action films he has ever made. When him and the predator go one on one it's awesome. It's truly clash of the titans as the warriors fight. Arnold is an absolute beast in the film. He's cut and huge and this movie took place during his stretch of hit movies that he had in the late 1980's. This movie helped make him the household name that he is today.
I liked Carl Weathers in this film. All people ever recognize this guy for is Apollo Creed in Rocky. After seeing him arm wrestle Arnold in the film you really recognize what kind of peak condition this guy was in at one point. I like Carl Weahters a lot and his role in Predator is great.
The rest of Arnolds team is full of plenty of guys that you see in a lot of his 80's movies. The most recognizable guy from his squad is former Gov. Jesse Ventura. The squad is casted perfectly as is this movie.
John McTiernan has to get a lot of credit for the success of this movie. This is a very well made movie. I love what he did with the Predator in the film. You don't get to see to much of the Predator until it squares off against Arnold. So like Spielberg did in Jaws you let the suspense of the creature scare you.
