Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer is the retired leader of a special ops strike force. Dutch enters one of the army's installations and goes up to his old friend and superior, Dillon, who briefs him on his assignment. His team has to find two officers held by guerrillas deep in a Central-American jungle. Dillon accompanies Dutch and his mercenaries to their mission. At one point, what began as a war movie turns into a gory science fiction extravaganza. The alien "Predator" seen in the beginning is on a hunting trip in the jungle to collect him a trophy. One by one, he kills all the members of the rescue team. After the Predator's series of executions, he must confront the only man who might defeat him, Dutch. And so begins an intense showdown between space's best hunter and Earth's best fighter.
