This review is for THIS DVD of Predator: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000E1120M/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_img_sol_0
Predator is one of those movies that'll grow on you eventually. I didn't like this movie at first, but now I appreciate it for what it is--a turn-your-brain-off action fest.
Basically this movie is about a team of rescuers (led by Arnold Schwarzenneger (Dutch) himself) who are sent into the jungle to rescue a team of soldiers that were supposedly shot down by guerrilla forces. However, things take a turn for the worse when they realize they are being stalked by a murderous predator (pun intended) from another world. As the Predator picks them off one by one, things culminate to an ingenius (and underrated) one-on-one showdown between Dutch and the Predator.
This is probably the best DVD you're gonna find for this movie. It's got great sound, great picture, and widescreen, as advertised. Also the box is reliable and very good. I received this used and in great condition, with a slip cover.
Overall, *** out of *****
