Box Synopsis
It comes from a distant world to hunt people for sport. Invisible, and armed with powerful weapons unlike anything we know, it stalks its human quarry mercilessly, leaving mangled corpses in its wake. Late time, it landed in the jungle. This time, it's chosen, Los Angeles.

Ravaged by open warfare 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) arrives and orders him to stay off the case. Instead, Harrigan sets out to learn what's really going on and comes face to face with the savage alien in a climactic, electrifying confrontation.

Co-starring Ruben Blades and featuring superb special effects from Stan Winston. PREDATOR 2 is a suspenseful action thriller.
