At Last! A Worthy Predator Film - Prey review by GI

Spoiler Alert
11/08/2022

The Predator franchise hasn't been very successful, after the stunningly brilliant original film (1987) came a series of dafter and unfulfilling sequels that have never been well received. But now we have a new film and it's a corker too. Returning to the essence of the original film and some neat links to it we have a prequel set 300 years before the first film. A young Comanche woman Naru (Amber Midthunder) is an expert tracker and keen hunter, she joins her brother's hunting party despite their attitudes to her being just a woman. But an alien predator is also in the forest and so begins a battle between them. This has everything a Predator movie should have, it's tense, neatly gory and essentially a battle of wits as the Indian warrior has to learn how to defeat this incredible enemy. The effects are good and there's neat details for the Predator fan to check out. Some of the script's lines reflect back to the original film and there's also links to Predator 2 (1990). It's a real pity this has not been given a cinema release and you'll have to check it out on Disney+ in the UK. Thoroughly enjoyable and exciting.

Disappointing - Prey review by KB

Spoiler Alert
10/01/2024

Unnecessarily violent & there is an unpleasant undertone that pervades throughout the film .There is no build up of tension in this .Basically ,it is just slaughtering of animals & humans every 5 minutes .The script is very corny & senseless & it is just a succession of set pieces put together without any cohesion. A bear appears for no apparent reason & it is very obviously c.g.i. which is out of context with the rest of it hence i can't see the point of it .

Ho-hum Predator movie - Prey review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
19/01/2024

It’s not the best Predator movie, but nor is it the worst. This time it’s an 18th-century Comanche girl with an axe who has to fight one of them. She has to prove her hunting skills to the woke-less tribes-boys, you see. There’s loads of tribal banter to fill time and much of it takes place in the dark to avoid us seeing too much. The climactic fight itself is ruined by dim lighting. The same-old Predator effects are getting pretty tiresome by now and you know our heroine will have enough superpower to defeat him, even after he despatches all the menfolk fodder, so there’s little tension in the plot. Still, it all passes by amiably enough and there’s some nice North American scenery to look at.

Critic review

Prey (aka Skull / Predator 5) review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

As the fifth Predator movie, Prey feels like a fresh dose of new blood for this aged sci-fi franchise. The past Predator movies have all felt like they were stumbling around in the dark, only finding originality in altercations of adding more of the titular monster (Predators) or changing the tone to one of comedy (2018’s The Predator). This film is so completely different in that it changes the setting and focus, where the Predator becomes more of a mysterious alien force, and the fight for survival is more compelling than the weapons the alien has in his arsenal this time.

Prey is set in 1719 amid the Great Plains, centering on a Comanche tribe. Among the tribe is Naru (Amber Midthunder), a woman who has been trained as a healer but really wants to be a warrior. Proving herself in both these professions, she aims to accompany her brother on the hunts for food through the forests. With the limited perceptions of women, Naru isn’t given much of a chance, as her first mission ends in accident and failure. Feeling disgraced, she seeks out another means of proving herself. Maybe defeating an alien from the stars will prove she’s a real Commanche warrior.

She’ll get that chance when the Predator creature arrives on Earth, aiming to hunt down all this planet has wildlife. Armed with camouflage, energy weapons, and blades, this vicious alien goes about slaughtering everything he comes into contact with. So when the Comanche warriors encounter this alien hunter with his advanced tech, it’ll take more than bows, arrows, and hatchets to take down this threat. Smarts are required, and Naru happens to have plenty. But she won’t be able to fight the Predator alone, as she’ll need some help from her reluctant tribesman. She’ll find even less help with the enslaving French voyageurs roaming the woods.

Amber Midthunder’s performance is brilliant in this brutal tale of survival. I loved her not just as a badass warrior but as someone trying to stress the value of unity when it comes to defeating a common foe. Her struggles of convincing others to work with her may come too late for the cocky men that believe the warrior spirit or powerful weapons of the era will be enough to prove themselves. They won’t, and it’s only by placing trust in Naru that they come closer to defeating this Predator at his own game.

Even though the representation of the Comanche tribe is uniquely portrayed (including an option Comanche-only audio track), the other big draw is the action of facing down the Predator. There’s a whole lot of violence in the film as the Predator guts bears decapitate humans and stalk them with great terror through the woods. The film also isn’t devoid of dark humor. There’s a beautifully absurd moment when one of the gun-wielding French is given a chance to fire at the Predator at point-blank range. Of course, he won’t win against the Predator’s advanced armor, but you have to laugh when the ricochet ends up killing the gunmen.

Prey is one of the best Predator movies in a long time and exactly what the franchise needed. It’s brutal and bloody while also finding something more to explore than more Predator lore and weapons. As cliche as it may sound, this picture gets the franchise back to its roots where it’s not about throwing more Predators at the screen or pitting them against the Xenomorphs from Alien. It’s about the scrappy nature of humans trying to defeat a seemingly invincible outsider force, leading to an exciting finale where that Predator kill is so damn good.
