Predator | Offscreen
Released in 1987, the first “Predator “was a big surprise: persuaded to find Schwarzenegger in a war movie following the success of “Commando”, the public discovers a Horror Sci-Fi film full of gore ... and a promising young director: John McTiernan , future king of the Blockbuster (“Die Hard”). The film is a 80's ode to the omnipotence of (muscular) Man facing Nature which he dominates and destroys as he pleases.
Leaving the jungle of the first movie, “Predator 2” succeeds in renewing the concept by placing the plot in a purely urban environment (Los Angeles). The subsequent films of the franchise have been less successful, burying the mythology of the Predator in the twaddle.
