A commando (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his highly skilled Special Ops team coordinates with the CIA on a sketchy rescue mission in a Central American jungle and finds themselves targeted by an otherworldly, extrasensory killing machine. Predator is campy fun and generally well made by director John McTiernan but the storyline, which essentially amounts to Alien in the Jungle, is awfully scant, the effects are cheesy, and the final protracted showdown is unsatisfying.
