Meanwhile, humanity also sends fighter Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) from the future to protect Sarah.

This film spawned a franchise – which includes three sequels and an upcoming prequel, Prey– as well as two crossover movies with “those other aliens” from Alien. But really, none of them matter much when it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger’s turn (and his biceps) as Alan “Dutch” Schaefer, a Vietnam veteran and current soldier for hire. In truth, he was the one who brought the predator original to its cult status. The premise is simple: Dutch and a ragtag military rescue team, including Mac (Bille Duke), Poncho (Richard Chaves), and Blain (Jesse Ventura), as well as Al Dillon (Carl Weathers) from the CIA, are sent to Guatemala to retrieve a group of politicians whose helicopter has sunk in the jungle. But the situation turns terrifying when they find themselves being stalked by some kind of stealthy and highly advanced creature, which is hunting them for sport.
