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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite the off-rhythm styling, there's not a lot going on."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"Alternately grisly and dull."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A very testosterone laced action thriller..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"films that understand that when Shane rode away at the end, he was probably just looking for a place to die."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Just about the epitome of '80s macho action."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"With its stilted dialogue and hammy acting, the film has the look of an expensive production but the feel of a B movie, delivering the sort of undemanding monster mayhem Arnie's fans have come to expect."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"It's a slick, high-energy action picture that takes a lot of its strength from its steamy locations in Mexico."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A hell of a lot of fun and plenty of testosterone."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The level of beefcakery reaches hilarious proportions..."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"The scariest thing about Predator is that its lead actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is currently serving as governor of California."
‑ Blake French,
"It is so lean, so exciting and so imaginative that you can watch it every month or two, year in and year out, and never get tired of it."
‑ Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter
"It's the perfect blend of explosive machismo and thrills where the setting is almost as ominous as the terrifying extra-terrestrial villain."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"It achieves a sort of sublime purity: it is Action Movie, nothing more and nothing less."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Predictability ultimately hurts it, while the creature itself and the battles and special effects save the day."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"An unpleasant action thriller that's about as thrilling as watching a fixed fight in the pro wrestling circuit."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
