Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this action-packed adventure story of fighting men pitted against an unseen enemy, a force more powerful than their fiercest weapons. Recruited by the CIA to rescue hostages held by the guerrilla fighters in a Central American country, Schwarzenegger and his men encounter an enemy unimaginably more deadly than any on Earth - because the Predator is not of this Earth. Packed with spectacular effects and combat scenes of gut-wrenching power, Predator is the most terrifying Schwarzenegger movie yet. (The first Predator is also available to purchase separately.

Predator 2
Last Time it landed in the jungle. This time it`s chosen Los Angeles. Ravaged by open warefare between rival drug gangs, L.A. is the perfect killing ground for the Predator, who is drawn by heat and conflict. When the police find mutilated bodies, Lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) thinks it`s the work of the feuding gangs. Then a mysterious government agent (Gary Busey) arrive and order him to stay off the case. Instead, Harrigan set out to learn what is really going on, and comes face to face with the savage alien in a climatic, electrifying confrontation. Co-starring Ruben Blades and featuring superb special effects, Predator 2 is a suspenseful action thriller.

Collectors box set? I always assumed a collectors box set should give you more than just the two films...perhaps a documentary, nice glossy inlay card..anything! This apart from the glossy cardboard box contains just the films. No documentaries, commentarys; just a trailer for each film! So much for "collectors edition"!
Anyway at least the films make up for it. Lively and bold visually..the sound once again is fantastic...just wait until you hear that chain gun firing! The sound is fantastic on both films and makes good use of the speakers filling the soundstage perfectly during the action sequences.
As with all Arnie films the first film flys along at breakneck rate, the tension building all the time all the way to the stunning climax.
Part 2, although no Arnie, gives you more of what you want, expanding the preadator to the urban jungle, bloody and just as gory and action packed as the first, keeps you going right from the beggining to the end credits.
Hard to recommend as there are no extras apart from the trailers! Buy only if your a die-hard fan like me, otherwise id avoid it and just buy the first PREDATOR DVD on its own.
