A creature from another world and this time Schwarzenegger is the prey!
Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this action-packed adventure story of fighting men pitted against an unseen enemy, a force more powerful than their fiercest weapons. Recruited by the CIA to rescue hostages held by guerrilla fighters in a Central American country, Schwarzenegger and his men encounter an enemy unimaginably more deadly than any on Earth — because the Predator is not of this Earth. Packed with spectacular special effects and combat scenes of gut-wrenching power, PREDATOR is the most terrifying — and most exciting — Schwarzenegger movie yet.
