There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man.  

                   We're all gonna die.


The story begins in outer space. An alien spacecraft hurtles toward Earth. As it makes a close pass on the night side of the planet, it ejects an object that enters the atmosphere and leaves a fiery contrail.

Somewhere on the coast of Guatemala, a US army special forces mission begins when six soldiers led by Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer (Schwarzenegger) are ordered by General Phillips to rescue a Guatemalan cabinet minister who has been captured by guerilla forces after his helicopter crashed in the jungle across the border in Val Verde.

Along with former team-member and current CIA agent Major George Dillon, the team is dropped behind the border and begins looking for traces of the minister and his escort. They find the crashed chopper, as well as traces of a dozen rebels being followed by several men with American equipment.  Shortly thereafter, they discover three dead U.S. soldiers hanging from trees, all of them skinned. Dutch recognizes the dog tags of one man as a Green beret, Lieutenant James Hopper, and questions why they were out in the middle of the jungle Dillon claims to know nothing.

The search-and-rescue mission continues, and they soon discover the guerrilla post with the possibility of more than thirty Guatemalan rebels and several Soviet military advisors. The team attacks and destroys the guerrilla base; however, the prisoners are already dead and turn out to be CIA men. Dutch confronts Dillon and discovers Dillon made up the cabinet minister story, and also admits that the skinned soldiers that had gone missing were ordered there as well. The Group however have other things to worry about...they are being watched by an alien type creature.....a predator......

As the group move through the jungle they are followed by this creature...and one of the team has his head severed by this entity. The creature picks the teamoff one by one....seeming disappearing into the jungle each time. Theteam attempt to kill it by saturating he jungle with ammo...yet they only suceed in wounding it (if ity bleeds it can be killed)....The group decide to set up a defensive perimiter....but people continue to die and bodies disappears.....Dutch decides that the group need ot make it to the extraction shopper....and surmises that this creature seems to kill for sport. Pretty soon Dutch finds that the Predator wants him and the two battle it out in the jungle....yet surely the odds are stacked in the favour of the predator???
