Film and Plot Synopsis
When Dutch and his group of commandos head out to a Central American jungle to rescue some downed airmen from guerillas, they find that something is hunting them. Nearly invisible, this intelligent alien hunter blends in with the forest, and takes down its prey one at a time; taking their dead bodies as trophies until it’s down to just it and Dutch.
‘Predator’ Movie Summary
After the team takes out the gorillas, Dutch confronts Dillon about the mission. Dillon reveals the dead military unit disappeared weeks earlier in a failed rescue. They capture a female gorilla named Anna, and with their mission done, they prepare to leave.
What the group doesn’t know is that an alien from outer space is on a vacation in the jungle too, and it’s looking to hunt anything with the capability to defend itself…and that means Team Murica.
Anna manages to run from the group, and as Hawkins takes chase, the alien ambushes and kills him. It then drags Hawkins’ body off as its trophy. While the team looks for Hawkins, the alien shoots and kills Blain. Mac spots the alien, which is cloaked, and he and the team shoot in it’s general direction….wasting valuable ammo in the process, but they did manage to wound the thing.
Later, when the alien steals Blain’s body as its prize, the group realizes the alien swings from tree to tree like Tarzan. So, they make some terrarium traps during a quickie 80s montage.
The hunt continues, and the alien manages to kill Mac, Dillon, Billy, and Poncho. Dutch escapes with only a flesh wound.
Since the alien only targets armed people, Dutch orders Anna to “Get to da choppa!” Dutch stays to kill the alien, which he eventually does in one on one combat. He and Anna leave on da choppa together for a happy ending.
