Predator (1987)

A delightfully 80s testosterone-fuelled action romp.

The way the film slowly sidles from straightforward machismo action into a tenser sort of science-fiction showdown is deftly done. The jungle location is fantastic and that whole spirit of the jungle is really infused throughout the film. The Predator itself has a memorable design and isn’t overplayed. The characters are essentially ciphers, but it’s fun hearing them spout cheesy 80s action lines.


An enjoyable hypermasculine trip back to the 80s. I give it three choppers, and an ugly motherfucker.
