USA, 1987 | Length: 107min | FSK: 16 | Director: John McTiernan Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers,Elpidia Carrillo

One of the 1980s' best all-around shoot 'em up sci-fi thrillers, John McTiernans (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October) perfect blend of explosive machismo and thrills stars Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator, Total Recall, onan, the Barbarian) as Dutch, the leader of an elite special forces team which is on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla-held territory in the middle of a Central American jungle. However, when Dutchs own team starts getting picked off one by one, they soon discover that they re secretly stalked and hunted by something not of this world. This carefully paced thriller is part sci-fi, part horror, part action but all muscle: Schwarzenegger has never been as manly as he was in this 1987 alien-hunting testosterone-fest. With great pacing, consistent tone, thrills, spills, pussy jokes, surprises and Arnold, Predator counts as one of the greatest action films of all time.
