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.

From the box:
He’s rough, and he’s tough — he’s the one-and-only Hulk Hogan, the international wrestling superhero and star of the action-packed adventure No Holds Barred!
Loaded with red-hot excitement and plenty of heart-pounding battles, the film features Hulk Hogan in his first starring role as “Rip”, a larger-than-life wrestling champ who’s been flooring some of the biggest bad guys ever to rock ’em and sock ’em in the ring. It’s not long before Rip’s unstoppable success catches the eye of unscrupulous television executive Tom Brell who sets out to use the champ to boost his sinking ratings.
The strong but sensitive Rip soon finds himself caught in a web of danger and intrigue when Brell tries to goad him into battling a monstrous killer named “Zeus” (Tiny Lister) on the air. The fight’s a “no go” until Brell sics his thugs on Rip’s beautiful girlfriend Samantha (Joan Severance), and has Zeus savagely attack his brother Randy. Now enraged, Rip goes after the brutal Zeus in a relentless battle of brawn where anything goes and there are No Holds Barred.
Get a ringside seat for non-stop fun and excitement when you see your favorite gladiator Hulk Hogan shine in the spotlight and go for the gold!
