    Moves at a breakneck pace, it has strong and simple characterizations, it has good location photography and terrific special effects, and it supplies what it claims to supply: an effective action movie. show more

    Structurally, Predator is a classic behind-enemy-lines/buddy movies. Nothing much new, just well done. show more
