    • Predator was shot using Arriflex 35-III and Panavision Panaflex Gold cameras on 35mm film and has recently been scanned at 4K resolution which has been used here for this Ultra HD Blu-ray release. The...

    • Unfortunately, there has been no upgrade to the sound; it is the same DTS-HD MA 5.1 track that has adorned the film for years, that is not to say it is a slouch, in fact it is terrifically bombastic, but...

    • Sadly there are no new extras, but everything from the Hunter Edition is replicated here on the included Blu-ray, which is the same DNRed monster previously available. UHDAudio Commentary – With director...

    • If it bleeds, we can kill it Arnie’s film output is a bit of a mixed bag. Sure his work with James Cameron has always yielded great results, but outside of that collaboration there isn’t much to write...

    • Outside of his work with James Cameron, Predator is Arnie’s finest hour. Putting together a bunch of no-nonsense musclebound ‘actors’ pitched against one of the most cleverly designed alien antagonists...

    • Ultimate Hunter Edition, which many fans consider to have substandard video quality, so the screenshots here reflect those inadequacies. The 2.0 score for the 1080p video also reflects Casey's original...

    • One possible letdown for fans is Fox's decision not to grant this release a new DTS:X or Dolby Atmos mix. This release features the same generally excellent if somewhat dated sounding DTS-HD Master Audio...

    • All three of the films included in the Predator: 3-Movie Collection 4K have ported over only the commentary track(s) to the 4K UHD discs included in the set. For this particular film, that includes: Commentary...

    • Some may wonder if Fox is trying to atone for past Blu-ray sins with the new 4K UHD releases of Predator 4K, Predator 2 4K and Predators 4K. And while there may indeed be at least a bit of salvation with...

    • Those who pay attention to such things may notice that when you get different reviewers offering their opinions on the same film, you often get different scores (imagine that!), and while Marty gave Predator...

    • Predator was shot and finished photochemically, so, natively speaking, it's a rich source for a 4K home video presentation. For this 2160p /  H.265 / HDR10 master, I have no knowledge whether it is a new...

    • Unfortunately, Predator doesn't get to enjoy a new object-based audio mix for this release. Fox instead held to the previous 3.5/5 star English DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix. While an Atmos or DTS:X mix would have...

    • "He didn't kill you because you weren't armed. No sport."There's not a whole hell of a lot I can add to the conversation about Predator. It's an exceptional film that persevered through some of the toughest...

    • I love Predator - I always have. Even when I was deathly afraid of it and my mother hid our VHS tape so I wouldn't get scared anymore, I still loved it. I damn near wore that tape out. As soon as disc-based...
