Predator


*If you’ve not seen Predator, stop reading and go see it. This review will still be here when you get back.

I have a lot of favourite movies—it’s notoriously hard to pick just one. There are movies I love for their story, movies I love for their look or action, and there are movies that have no merit whatsoever but I love ‘em anyway.

Predator is largely dismissed has having little merit; it’s about an alien that stalks and kills a platoon. But in spite of its simplicity, or more likely because of it, the film succeeds in delivering a smart, entertaining, and suspenseful story.

If I have not seen this movie earlier I might ignore it as I don't like old movies. But this is the gem of all movie I have seen so far. What a great story, one can't even guess what is going to happen next. Must watch !!
