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.
9. 3/10. Possibly one of the best of Schwarzenegger's career. The idea of this alien hunting these mercenaries in the jungle for sport intrigued me. I liked the look of the alien as he was a mix of both scary and kick ass warrior. He really gave Schwarzenegger a run for his money. If anything, more movies should've done like Predator, sadly only Nemesis 2:Nebula followed this great idea. My opinion on Arnold Schwarzenegger's 10 Best Movies:1. Terminator 2:Judgement Day,2. Conan The Barbarian,3. Total Recall,4. Predator,5. The Terminator,6. Twins,7. True Lies,8. Escape Plan,9. Terminator 3:Rise Of The Machines,10. (tie) Conan The Destroyer/Kindergarten Cop/Jingle All The Way/End Of Days.
So this didn't really work for me. The Predator is a cool character on its own, but is not strong enough to support the rest of the movie. I did not care for really any of the characters; there was not a lot about them to get invested in. I was slightly invested in the character Mac, and the main character Butch, but only because of the charisma Arnold Schwarzenegger brings to the role. The biggest problem I have with this movie is the Alan Silvestri score because it does not match the tone of this movie and takes away any tension that the movie is trying to build.
