    Predator...There's no other movie that's so bad,it's good.I mean you get to see Arnold Schwarzenegger say 80's action movies typical cheesy one liners and go head to head with an alien...You don't see that anywhere else.

    This is the definition of action. It was entertaining in some parts but it does get rather predictable and boring as well. Also the acting was poor as well. It was ok though but not as good as it could have been.

    McTiernan, regrettably, seems more interested in spectacle than suspense, and the attack sequences are filmed for splashy visual impact. And an apocalyptic finale that raises the antiwar message to the nuclear level is more than McTiernan's metaphor can bear. [12 June 1987, Friday, p.J]
  2. Alternately grisly and dull, with few surprises. [12 June 1987, p.C6]

    Despite the off-rhythm styling and suggestions of primeval menace, there's really not much going on here.
