Listen. This movie ain't bad... but it isn't good either. It's incredibly "meh..."
The CGI made me feel like I was watching the live action jungle book movie. And why would you CGI the Predator's face? The makeup for predator monsters has always looked fantastic, why tarnish that?
This movie has one purpose. To get you to tune into Hulu... maybe sell you a subscription, or even get you to renew it. You already LOVE Predator. Hell, I love Predator 2 just as much. Here's the funny thing: I've never failed to watch the stupid sequels and even the Alien vs. Predator movies... I've been sold a brand. If it's got the Predator in it, I'm gonna check it out. No matter how bad it is... I can't help it. Hulu is smart because they know there are shmucks like me out there that will renew our subscription just to check it out. It's a very smart financial move. Congratulations Hulu.
This movie was painfully mediocre. A Comanche dub? A dub?!? I would have been so much more into this if the actors were ACTUALLY speaking Comanche. And for the people who don't like subtitles, then provide and English dub. Not the other way around! The Frenchman were speaking old style French so what gives?!? Why all the English? If Mel Gibson can do it, so can these guys. C'mon! And let's get some REAL animals in there! What is this?!? A Disney movie?!? Films have been putting real animals without harming them in movies for DECADES. But hey, I get it... Horrible looking CGI is probably much cheaper... less insurance cost etc. Etc. Let's not forget our purpose here is to get people to sign up to Hulu, not create a GREAT movie... it just has to be good enough... just enough to lure the nerds in. And I hate to say this... but let's have a female lead that weighs over 90 lbs. It was unbelievable, I'm sorry. She was adorable, yes. She's not a bad actress... but I dunno, she seemed pretty miscasted to me. When I think of strong female leads in action movies, I think of Sigorney Weaver, Linda Hamilton... someone strong looking with some physical strength. She's supposed to be a hunter and a warrior! Other than her ethnicity, she just didn't look the part to me.
It was cool that Native Americans played the Native American. I'll give it that. I'll even change the rating from a 5 to a 6 just for that. But folks. Don't believe the hype. Nothing too special here. You're being fished in.
Fmovies: I think Prey did an excellent job at crafting a fresh new story. Let's face it, predictor sequels and spin-offs have felt more like a money grab. But here there's a real story that cleverly weaves a number of story lines together to spin up this intriguing edition.
Amber Midthunder more than holds her own and keeps the pace moving. And the movie does a great job at leveraging the historical context for maximum effect.
Big thumbs up from me.
I was only going to rate this until I decided to read some of the comments. This was easily the best one since the original. Not even close to me. I was hopefully when Shane Black did a "reboot" in 2018 I believe. I was disappointed. This was taking the franchise back to the basics and that was a good think! If you liked what Rogue One meant to Star Wars then this story will connect with you. I loved the cinematography. It was beautiful. The acting was really good. Don't worry that the lead actors aren't more well known. I was really not expecting much to be honest. The sequels since The Predator have been let downs. I only watched because the trailer had me with taking it so far back in time. At an hour and forty min it wasn't too short or too long. It was the perfect run time. I hope that you like Prey as much as me and that you rate and leave a comment. Happy hunting!
Prey fmovies. As a lifelong fan of this franchise I am admittedly biased. Since the revolutionary classic first film, Fox/hollywood have made 4 sequels all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed/ still critiqued. A perfect sequel hasn't been made imo and may never be, but I can say this new film has the closest effective wilderness ambience/suspense to the first film and that warrants great praise.
I was skeptical with a few things judging by the trailer but seeing the final product I can say that no matter the logic holes in the mismatch of Pred vs prey , the film is executed quite well. The settings are phenomenal and amplify the overall product. Dan Trachtenberg has a keen eye for detail as seen in 10 cloverfield lane and shows it once again. The costume design captures a completely different timeframe awesomely as well as shows a new more prehistoric predator that might be the coolest visually yet. Music and sound is crisp and powerful and adds so much. The acting is bare bones but for the story it has to be as far as context.
It's a shame that this had to be only streaming as it should have been in theater. The scenery is fantastic. But regardless it's a surprising return to roots as far as the back to basics setting and suspense aspects. It's another welcome sequel and should be seen by any predator fan or action fan.
