Predator

Question: After Dutch defeats the alien and decides not to smash his face with the rock he asked the alien "what the hell are you." Can anybody make out with the alien is trying to say, because in previous scenes we can hear what the alien is saying in English?

Answer: The predator says the same thing Arnold said "What the hell are you."

Chosen answer: The predator wasn't speaking in English, it was mocking Dutch by playing recordings of his now-dead team. When Dutch says "What the hell are you?", the predator plays back that question, although it sounds distorted as its systems are damaged.

It said "What the hell are you?" in a very distorted voice. When the Predator got his ass whooped by small inferior Arnold lol... he was clearing thinking the same thing Arnold was. Like "wtf is going on?!" Thus committing honorable suicide. Attempting to take out Arnold as well.

Question: Was the minigun used by Jesse Ventura in Predator the same one (as in the same physical prop, not just the same model and/or configuration) later used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2?

Chosen answer: Check out http://www.montysminiguns.com/MoviePage.htm. This site confirms that the same minigun is used in both movies, and is (or was) on display at the Allegheny Arms and Armor Museum in Smethport, Pennsylvania.

Question: There is a scene in the movie where Billy chops a vine with a machete and sucks on it. What kind of vine was that?

Answer: I can't tell you the specific type of vine it was, but some vines contain water safe enough for drinking. This is a commonly known survival tactic.

Question: When Dillon and Dutch see each other again in the opening scene, Dillion asks Dutch why he passed on Libya, something doesn't look right. Is almost looks to me like he is saying something different?

Answer: Dutch answered, "We're commandos, not assassins."

Thank you for your response. However I was referring to Dillon. He said "You got no style..." It looks like he is saying something else.

I know what you are talking about. When Dillon replies "you got no style Dutch, you know that" It looks edited, but I think he just had a difficulty with saying his line, making it look fake. It's not dubbed or altered in any way.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end when Arnie crawls into the booby trapped gully you can see the Predator behind him with the knives on his right arm already extended. The camera then switches to a shot of the Predator extending the knives to finish Arnie off.

Trivia: Jesse Ventura could only carry enough blank ammunition to fire "Old Painless" for five seconds even though the props department had dramatically reduced the cyclic rate of the weapon to allow the camera to film the barrels rotating.
