Predator Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has a code of honor which he will not violate, even when his life depends on it. Paradoxically, his code of honor gives him the backbone to survive as a military special forces operative when he is sent on a covert mission to rescue another group which was sent in to assist some nefarious U.S. government plan in a Latin American country. Once there, he encounters an old army buddy (Carl Weathers) who has gotten too deep in the CIA's good graces for Dutch's comfort. When he and his team go into the jungle to rescue the others, they get involved in a pitched battle with local guerillas, but they are more than capable of besting these vicious fighters. However, not long after that, they encounter signs that the equally capable men they were sent to rescue were all killed unawares and in an unusually gruesome fashion. Given their training, it should have been impossible for anyone to best all of these commando warriors. Soon, the men from Dutch's own team get picked off one by one, as they grow aware that they are up against something uncanny, not of this world, something that is hunting them for sport. Why? Because their skills make them worthy opponents for the perfectly camouflaged Predator. This carefully paced action movie was given poor reviews by many movie critics, but was sufficiently satisfying for its (largely male) audiences that a successful sequel (Predator 2) was released in 1990. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Wow. finally a great transfer. This version is by far the best I've seen.
The 3D is a bonus, not eye popping like other 3D movies but very well done. It's the 2d that rocks, the film was cleaned and the mist/ haze is seen the way the director intended. So go out and spend your money on this version and enjoy!

Worthy of the upgrade
Posted by: Buckeyefan9903 from: Lancaster, OH on
Some of the reviews of this second Predator Blu ray have not been so good. Some complaints of waxy figures playing the part and digital noise reduction. Before making this purchase I watched my old DVD version and decided to give it a shot. I had avoided the first Blu Ray based on reviews of heavy grain. This movie may not have the gritty grainy look that it did when it first hit the theaters but to me it looks even better. Grain in minimal and colors pop like never before. I recommend the upgrade if you are still holding onto the DVD.

One of the best movies ever made (besides Alien). Everything about this movie is excellent. This is probably Stan Winston's best creature.

Great Movie, Not 2 Discs
Posted by: CaptainJack14 from: Staten Island, NY on
This is a great movie and my rating is poor because it is not 2 Discs like Best Buy shows. This is a great movie but just know that it is only 1 Disc.

True Blu-ray quality
Posted by: superkidd from: Manchester, NH on
Great classic movie and they finally got the quality right instead of just throwing the dvd version on a blu-ray disc like past releases. Great price. The product description says its a 2 disc widescreen special but it is only 1 disc that contains the movie and all special features.

GO! GET TO DA CHOPPAH!!!!
Posted by: Leftoverchinese from: Orlando on
This is a classic film that is easily one of Arnold's best. My only complaint is that Fox didn't include ANY of the special features that were already included in the previous DVD releases.

The Classic Predator in 3D
Posted by: ROYALTY77 from: Atlanta, GA on
Predator is one of my Top 10 Favorite movies. I’ve watched the 3D version about 6 times and I liked it. I purchased the 3d Version to add to my Predator/Alien Blue~Ray Collection. I’m satisfied with my purchase.

I have to say first of all the the new transfer looks amazing. I have around 40+ blu rays and this one has to be one of the best ones for clarity, the picture is crystal clear. After hearing all the bad press about the previous version of film having a DVD quality video I was slow to buy this but I'm now very pleased.
