Action Movie Music: Predator (1987) Main Theme

We all know Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is a stone cold classic, but not just from an action standpoint. Yes, we have Arnie and crew going toe to toe with the coolest alien in cinema history, but we also get Alan Silvestri’s classic militaristic score.
It provides the perfect atmosphere for the movie, creating nail-biting tension in the quiet scenes and then ass-kicking bombast during the action sequences.
For me the opening theme is one of my all time favourite action themes and Arnie’s introduction as the cigar chomping badass Dutch Schaefer is legendary.
Check out the Main Theme to Predator below and travel back to the ultimate rumble in the jungle.
