ldh's review

A classic action fare from the 80's with great macho performances from the whole cast, great writing and an immersive jungle world. The Predator character was pretty much instantly iconic, through its character traits and design, very much like the Alien for example. John McTiernan, after the small scale but effective

Nomads (1986), became an instant top director with this film, following up with ever greater achievements in Die Hard 1 (1988) and Jack Ryan 1: The Hunt For Red October (1990). It's difficult to imagine how immensely successful he was within the span of only a few years.
