Predator (1987)

Predator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a member of a Special Forces unit sent deep into the jungle to rescue a hostage. What he and his crew don't realize is that an alien is following them through the jungle, hunting them. When they realize what is happening, a series of battles between the predator and the men until only Arnold is left to fight the monster in a great battle at the end of the film.
Predator is a classic sci-fi action movie with an interesting story, good characters and great action. The special effects in this movie seem to be ahead of their time and the Predator is one of the best evil aliens that has ever been put on screen. There are also a lot of creative additions to the film, one of the best being the Predator's technology. One of the first things we see of the predator is the infra-red vision that he can see people's body warmth with. Along with this, he has a shoulder cannon that rotates and fires wherever he needs it to.

One of the best parts of the film is the last battle between Arnold and the Predator. Covered in mud so that he will not be picked up by the predator's infra-red vision, Arnold makes a series of traps and weapons from natural resources. After a great action sequence, he finally kills the alien and is rescued and taken out of the jungle.
