What he said:


On first look it's easy to think it's just an action flick. And don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's deeply profound, but it is very smart.

Instead of shoving the creature down our throats, you wait with anticipation to actually see what the damn thing is and what it looks like. The pacing of the movie is surprisingly well-done.

It is a shame though, because nobody seeing this for the first time today is going to feel the same suspense as when the movie first came out. Back when this movie was new, nobody knew what a "Predator" was, so while watching this movie you are as puzzled by this situation as the characters are. There is a lot of good movies like this nowadays and that is a shame, because nothing beats the shock and awe of something entirely new to you.

This movie is also loaded with Arnie one-liners and that's always a good thing.

Rating: Thumbs up.
