Predator

The Younger Son picked Predator to watch with The Husband and me this past Friday night. Except for the token female I got a kick out of this one. Predator is a 1987 sf/horror film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse Ventura.

trailer:


Roger Ebert says it's "filmed very well". Moria says,
For a film that makes no pretence to anything other than action, the results emerge particularly well. The appearances of the Predator and its digital camouflage are unworldly. The combat is staged with an exhilaratingly pyrotechnic kick. The military manoeuvers are directed with considerable style – clearly, either McTiernan or some advisor behind the scenes had had hands-on military training as the way the soldiers move looks like they are in the midst of real action.
Rotten Tomatoes seems to like it.
