If it bleeds...we can kill it - Prey (2022) - Review

A prequel story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. Naru, a skilled warrior, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth.

This is one of the best Predator movies in decades. Getting back to the story's roots with minimal special effects and more hunting. This movie slowly progresses to show how every creature including the people in this film are predators and prey. Gradually working up the food chain until the super-predators remain. It has a Mulan-esk feel with the lead woman wanting to be a hunter and not a domestic, and there was some oddness at the end, with the customs of the tribe I thought were a stretch, but the action was great, even though some parts were easy to figure out. I liked the nods back to the franchise, and the call-outs that fans will recognize. I also appreciated the director not treating the audience like idiots. There was a fade-in at the beginning to set the stage for English to be used, and small hints at the plot development that did not need to be spelled out in detail. The audience could piece it together as they watched. Well worth a view if you want an excellent Sci-Fi action movie. Let me know what you think.

Ranking 8.0/10
