John McTiernan, who directed the best action movie ever (Die Hard) not only provides eye popping action sequences with the aid of an Oscar nominated visual effects team, but creates quiet moments of nail-biting suspense waiting for this creature to strike that rivals some of Hitchcock and DePalma's ...
First 80 minutes or so are really good but I've always thought the film takes a little dive after it turns to a duel between Predator and Arnold.
