Although it may seem cliche’ to post an action movie as a Movie for Gamers, video games are actually packed with action. Predator demonstrates a lot of what’s done in games… avoiding traps, intense fights, gathering supplies, etc. In this 80’s action film we follow some special ops guys as they discover an alien hunter in the jungle. They quickly change from commando bad asses into hunted prey. Arnold Schwarzenegger is in prime form as he battles the elusive alien predator. The Predator itself packs some fun toys, include invisibility cloaking, acidic blood and an arsenal of deadly weapons.
