The ultimate hunter meets the ultimate adversary in the ultimate Collectors Edition DVD! Arnold Schwarzenegger wages an all-out war against an unseen enemy, a force more powerful and deadly than any on Earthbecause the Predator is not of this Earth. Now, you can explore the depths of the Predator jungle with this all-new 2-disc set packed with over 5 hours of out-of-this-world extras, including an in-depth documentary, directors commentary, never-before-seen bonus footage, revealing featurettes and more!
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.

BUT, why did 20th Century Fox leave off the Theatrical Trailer that is on the following:
1-Disc Blu-ray Version
2-Disc 3D Blu-ray (All Region UK Release)
I'm film fan that strongly believes if a Theatrical Trailer is available it should be on any of the film's digital releases because it is a part of the movie's history.
Come on Fox, give us all we deserve in purchasing your releases!
I have the 3D version and it is a good conversion.
Special Features are generous with several featurettes, outtakes, commentary and more. Rated R (USA), UK - 18 for original 2D release, 15 for 3D version (2013). Lots of gore and violence.
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.Read more ›
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
