Predator is similar to Sparta

I remember discussing Spartan society in class, and how they were a very militaristic society.  They were brutish and unforgiving. Yesterday I watched Alien Vs Predator, and the Predators seem to act a lot like the Spartans. They are a very heavily militaristic based race, and most of their values rely on physical strength. The whole reason why the Aliens were living on Earth was so the Predators could hunt them. Their ritual of hunting Aliens was a method of proving their “masculinity” and to be worthy of the Predator status. You don’t get to see much about Predators in the movie other than fighting. But when I watched, their race or society reminded me of Sparta, and their extremely militaristic society.
