Predator is the first installment of the Predator franchise. The movie has a commando named Dutch Schaefer joining a special forces team in Central America under the pretense of liberating a P.O.W. camp when, in truth, they were sent to bust up a drug operation. During extraction maneuvers, the team is picked off, one by one, by an extraterrestrial big game hunter lured there by the combination of heat and conflict, sparing only those who cannot fight back. In the end, Dutch confronts the Predator and, after a savage battle, defeats him. When the Predator reveals his face, he activates a bomb to take his own life and Dutch narrowly escapes the explosion.

It inspired the video game StarTropics.
