I take my valuable time to fix the fucked up plot Wikipedia had for Predators and some fucking powerprick editor deletes it with a smarmy note telling me to read the rules or something. Eventually, Wales will have to sell WIki because no way contributions will be able to pay for bandwidth. In the meantime, here’s the plot to Predators the pricks wouldn’t post:
Royce (Adrien Brody) awakens to find himself parachuting into an unfamiliar jungle. He meets several others who arrived in the same manner: Mexican drug cartel enforcer Cuchillo (Danny Trejo), Spetsnaz soldier Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov), Israel Defense Forces sniper Isabelle (Alice Braga), Revolutionary United Front officer Mombasa (Mahershala Ali), death row inmate Stans (Walton Goggins), Yakuza enforcer Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien), and a general practice doctor Edwin (Topher Grace), while an unnamed soldier dies after falling to the ground on impact due to his parachute not opening.
Upon landing, they discover that all are armed and lethal killers, with the apparent exception of Edwin, though none know where they are or how they got there. The group follows Royce, whom Isabelle suspects is a former black operations soldier turned mercenary. In the jungle they find a strange triangular obelisk, empty cages, plants with a neurotoxic poison that Edwin collects on a scalpel, and a deceased US Special Forces soldier with a large hole in his chest. Arriving at higher ground, they find themselves staring at an alien sky and realize that they are not on Earth, but an unknown planet.
As Stans threatens Mombasa for a gun, the group is attacked by a pack of quadruped alien beasts, but manage to kill some of them. Before the creatures kill the group, they are called off by a whistle and run off. The survivors regroup, but find Cuchillo missing. The group avoids a trap when something mimicking Cuchillo’s voice tries to lure them close to his slumped corpse. Royce theorizes that they are on a planet used as a game preserve, where humans are hunted as game. The group follows the quadrupeds’ tracks to a hunting encampment and find a captive Predator. Three larger cloaked Predators attack, revealed to be their hunters, killing Mombasa when he steps in a spear trap as the rest of the group escapes and hides behind a nearby waterfall. Isabelle reveals that she has heard of the Predators before, from a report by the only survivor of a Special Forces team who encountered one in Guatemala in 1987.
The group then meets Noland (Laurence Fishburne), a lone soldier who has survived on the planet for “10 seasons” by hiding and scavenging using the Predators’ technology. He explains that the Predators sharpen their hunting skills by collecting warriors and dangerous beasts from other worlds and bringing them to this planet to hunt. Noland also reveals that the Predators hunt in threes, and that there is a blood feud between the larger Predators and the smaller ones. Royce hopes that if the group can free the smaller Predator being held prisoner at the encampment, it may help them get home using the other Predators’ spaceship.
However, Noland, driven mad by years of isolation and looking to obtain the group’s supplies, attempts to murder the group in a fire during the night. Royce uses an explosive to attract the Predators, who kill Noland. In the ensuing chase, the group is separated, and Nikolai sacrifices himself to kill one of the Predators using an explosive while the remaining five survivors escape. Stans savagely attacks a second Predator with his shiv to allow the others to escape, and is killed. Hanzo stays behind and duels the third Predator in a wide field with a katana, killing it at the cost of his own life.
Edwin is injured by a trap as he, Royce, and Isabelle head for the encampment. When Isabelle refuses to abandon him, Royce leaves them both behind and they are caught in a net by the remaining large Predator. Royce frees the smaller Predator and heads for the ship as the two Predators confront each other. The larger Predator kills the smaller one and then destroys the ship as it takes off. Meanwhile, Edwin paralyzes Isabelle with the neurotoxic poison on his scalpel and reveals that on Earth he was a murderer, and feels that he fits in on this planet among the monsters. Royce appears, never having boarded the ship, and realizes Edwin’s true motives after seeing Isabelle paralyzed before stabbing the doctor in the chin with his own toxin-laced scalpel.
Royce booby-traps Edwin with grenades, using him as bait. When the Predator turns Edwin over, the grenades explode, injuring the Predator but not killing it. Royce covers himself in mud and lights numerous fires to disorient the Predator and hide his body heat from the Predator’s thermal vision technology. He fights hand to hand and is nearly killed when Isabelle recovers enough from the paralysis to get off a shot, disabling the Predator and allowing Royce to mortally injure and finally decapitate the Predator.
The next day, as Royce and Isabelle recover from their ordeal, they observe more prey parachuting into the jungle. Royce, surmising that more Predators will soon arrive to hunt the new prey, tells Isabelle that they must find another way to get off the planet, as they head into the jungle together. As the screen cuts to black, a Predator’s snarl is heard one last time.
