“A long time ago, it is said that a monster came here…”
Prey is a sci-fi action film in the Predator franchise. It premiered on August 5th 2022 on Hulu. The film stars Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, and Michelle Thrush. It runs for an hour and thirty-nine minutes.
A female warrior attempts to protect her people from a dangerous alien predator that hunts both humans and animals.
Here is the trailer:
Prey gives us a prequel filled with plenty of worthy moments, along with some Easter Eggs for fans of the franchise. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Naru and Sarii are my kind of duo!
Amber Midthunder was absolutely fantastic as Naru. She really dominated the screen and held my attention the entire time. She was far from a perfect warrior, but her perseverance and ability to think outside the box made her one to root for.
The dog, Sarii was a scene stealer for sure and my absolute favorite part of the movie. This duo was truly amazing and I LOVED them!
There was plenty of action and gore in this one. The predator truly got his chance to shine in this environment and the setting was absolutely stunning. I also liked that we got some Easter Eggs (some were better placed than others) for fans of the franchise.
I think that this film did enough to earn its place in the franchise while finding its own identity in the process.
A little slow at first…
I was slightly worried at the beginning of this film. The pacing was slower than I had wanted, but things did pick up in the second half.
So am I in or out?
This film had some flaws, but it was so entertaining to watch! The fight scenes were bloody fantastic and I was rooting for my new favorite duo, Naru and Sarii, the entire time!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
