Despite his agents' efforts,…

    Called in by his old partner Dillon (Carl Weathers) to rescue hostages from militants, Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) finds himself and his men being hunted in a dense jungle by an alien predator (Kevin Peter Hall).

Despite being outmatched and outgunned, Dutch decides to take this thing head on to make sure it can't harm any more people than it already has.

    This movie is a prime example of…
