This review is from: Predator - Single Disc Edition  [DVD] (DVD)
This awesome movie was on TV again the other night. I always end up watching Predator, should I come across it while channel hopping. I have it on DVD, and have seen it many times. In my opinion, this film is Arnie at his level best; an action movie superstar, in one of the defining films of the genre, and certainly the decade. To be honest, the action sequences along with the genius creation that is Predator, mean the film would be excellent regardless of who played the lead. It is that good. Arnie's inclusion (though a perfect choice), is just a bonus in my book. Along with T2, Predator ranks among my top five favourite films ever. Why? Well... It features a crack team of special forces soldiers, in an inhospitable jungle, with massive guns, even more massive biceps, being hunted by a futuristic warrior from another planet. There are huge explosions, devasting displays of fire power (ole' painless!!), and a showdown that sees the hunted face off with the hunter, leaving wits and instinct to decide the victor... it's tense, claustrophobic, features lush jungle set pieces, the predator has seriously cool toys, great sound effects.. oh, and Arnie (Dutch) is in it. Convinced yet?
This review is solely about the movie. I'm afraid I can't comment on the finer points of the DVD.
But in my opinion, even if the picture quality on this DVD was average at best, and it featured zero extras, it'd still be well worth having. Awesome movie!
