* Notice that the Predator kills Hawkins first (the radio equipment technical expert), and Blaine second. The Predator knew what it was doing. By eliminating Hawkins first, the Predator was wiping out the team's communications guy, essentially sabotaging them and leaving them stranded in the jungle. By eliminating Blaine second, the Predator was getting rid of the biggest gun, literally and figuratively.
** The Predator clearly respected (or feared?) Old Painless, because if you pay attention, Blaine is essentially the only character killed from a distance.
** That and the fact that he had a minigun on him, and so the Predator didn't want to get anywhere close to him. While the other soldiers are killed at close-range Blaine, on the other hand, is hit first with a stunning blow, and then with the killing blow that blew out his chest: both attacks were fired from a safe distance.

* Anna's Fate is likely less than pleasant. The film treats going to the chopper as a happy ending, but this is happening in 80s' Central America. She will likely go right back into being a prisoner, who will be squeezed by the local CIA proxies for every bit of information about the rebels. That's why Dillon brought her.


* The Predator is on safari. It's the exact same thing we humans have done to animals for hundreds of years.

* Why does The Predator's cloaking technology fail [[NoWaterproofingInTheFuture every single time it gets wet]]? Because it seems to work by refracting light away from The Predator (several characters notice that the creature isn't perfectly invisible if you look hard enough, and when it moves there is a visible distortion). Water ''also'' has natural light refracting properties, thus when The Predator ends up in the drink they end up canceling each other out. As for [[FridgeLogic why the Predator race hasn't done anything to fix this flaw]] is anyone's guess.
