    So I finally got a chance to watch Prey, and I have to admit, I was surprised. It wasn't the masterpiece that some are hailing it as, and there's definitely things it could have done better, but overall it was a pretty solid movie. Join me as we journey back 300 years to the first battle against the Predator.

The idea for the Predator is not to take damage and do nothing, like some of those "fat bosses" from 90's videogames and movies. The idea is to avoid damage, and yet end up outmatched by a superior combatant, who can adapt.

@Sandman_says_Run, Runner It’s literally as simple as Google, G. Being able to perceive things does not equate to being self aware, that’s a false equivalent. Even if it did, there are several animals other than us that fit that bill (dolphins, orcas, crows, most Great Apes, elephants, bears, hell, even a species of fish) so it invalidates your original point anyway. That deer in your example perceived that that other animal was a cougar, understood the threat it posed, and took steps to protect its own life. Most animals can feel (though not with the same range of emotions we do, obviously) become happy or depressed, become scared, grow attachments to and care about things…. Sounds pretty sentient to me. Look, regardless, you’re either wrong or super wrong, pick one my guy. You have the same resources available on this internet as I do. The word you’re looking for is sapience.

@Coop Yes, I DO know what sentient is. I don't think you do, or you are getting it confused. Sentient is being self aware or having consciousness, it is NOT perception. (Actually, microorganisms are able to perceive things.) To perceive means to become aware of, usually through one of the senses. A deer seeing or smelling a cougar has become aware of (or perceives) that cougar. It does not mean it understands what its or the cougar's roll is in the grand scheme of things. Plants and animals are not pondering their place in the Universe. They are not even aware of the Universe.

But then you'd have to question everything. Unfortunately in western entertainment/media the protagonist has plot armor at all times. This is less so in the eastern anime/manga scene but even still that happens. Just watch Gantz, Monster, Chainsaw Man or Berserk if you really want your main protag to go through absolute HELL lol.

A good campfire scene would have gone a long way to fleshing out the characters. Show them sitting around the fire joking, talking about past experiences or interacting with her. We would have gotten a feel for who they were and thus would have been more affected when they fought and died. The chopper ride in the first movie did that for us and they missed that opportunity here.

If you compare this movie to Apocalypto, directed by Mel Gibson, you see that Mel Gibson puts huge attention to character development, ambiance, and COMMON SENSE. He gives true reasons for fear because of the motives that drive even the villains. Apocalypto does not have aliens, but for some reason, you care so much about all characters, and every death is pure loss, and sadness. Indigenous stories can be very attractive, but need another level of sensibility and immersion to create a bond with the audience. Prey does not give it, its shallow beauty and some lost gore. But anyway, great analysis Drinker!

SPOILERS! The final moments with our protagonist perfectly demonstrates Hollywood's (any many viewers') warped idea of what a good character is when said character is a woman. After being pushed to her limit, losing her brother, and watching a sizeable portion of her tribe's hunters and warriors die, she is named War Cheif and has a big smile on her face whilst everyone cheers for her. In Predator, after being pushed to his limit, losing his entire team, and a good friend of his outside of said team, Dutch's final moments on screen are him sitting there physically exhausted, mentally scarred by how many friends of his were killed right in front of him, and probably already riddled with survivor's guilt. I honestly do not understand why so many critics are praising this film for its character development.

What made John Wick's introduction one of the most badass protagonist intros is that he and his achievements are spoken of by other characters with reverence like he was some mythical creature or deity. That set him up perfectly as a certified, no nonsense badass. Imagine if John Wick said: "I am a man of focus and sheer will and I have been sent to kill the Boogeyman" he would've sounded like a cringey teenager in CW shows trying really hard to act tough, grown up and mature.

Other than the characters all being very shallow I have two real gripes. 1) Main character's sole reason to want to hunt is because everyone tells her she can't. Most other reasons would have been perfectly OK. It's in her blood. Comes from a long line of hunters. She just likes it. But to specifically want it ONLY because other people say she can't... Terrible. 2) The god damned dog kept vanishing mid-scene. Otherwise, it was OK if you want to see some mindless action.

Instead of wanting to be a hunter to "Reject society standards" the protagonist should have simply enjoyed joining her brother on hunts. This would make it a real "Fish out of water" story when all hell breaks loose. She now has to deal with this horrific beast by using the skills she learned by following her brother. I think that would be far more compelling and scary.

@TrueUnderDawgGaming her mother asked her why she wanted to hunt because shes incapable of doing it as shown many times to her tribe throughout the movie. And rejecting societies norms as much as you may hate to hear was a thing that happened many times throughout history so again, not out of any realm of possibility here. She was already shown to be envious of her older brother and his skill in the very first scene with them together when he shot the bird she was aiming at, as well as nearly every scene they shared now that i think about it. That motivation is definitely there but its not as pronounced as the "prove myself" role they gave her. I like the idea you gave but it doesnt seem that far off from what we got in my opinion. Look im not saying this is a perfect film at all, i just dont think they had blatantly malicious intentions with its writing. Im pretty sure they just wanted to make a fun action/thriller with a unique setting around the predator, and they did. Theres a political message in quite literally everything everywhere if you look/think hard enough about whatever it is. I just dont look for it nearly as much as everyone else in this comment section. Which is fine, what ever floats your boat man.

As an avid hunter, everything about the ‘hunting’ in this movie is completely wrong. And the first couple of minutes I was sitting there thinking to myself. This is the dumbest shit I’ve ever seen. It pulled me out of the movie experience completely. 1. Those aren’t whitetail deer tracks way to big, if anything they’re elk. 2. You would never hunt with an axe, especially when you have a bow. As you would have to be right next to the animal to deliver a blow that would kill it, if you struck it perfectly. 3. Everything she does with the axe is complete science fiction and defy’s the laws of physics. 4. The recklessness all the characters treated their bows, when any bow hunter knows you have to be extra careful or the bow string can snap. Similar to what happens when she approaches the bear. And if they’re tribe is a tribe of hunters they would know this. 5. If you read any book about the way of life during this time period, they see Grizzly bears as almost super natural monsters and wouldn’t target them unless absolutely necessary. I’ll give her a pass because you could argue it’s somewhat a right of passage for her. Which would prompt her to ignore logic. 6. Mountain lions don’t act that way, and that’s not the usual way you’d hunt them. Typically mountain lions are extremely recluse elusive creatures and they will often flee up a tree when someone is near hoping to avoid detection. So the most common way to hunt them, is to push them up a tree, typically with dogs, but can be done without. And then to shoot them out of the tree. Still a hunting method in practice today. 7. 0% chance he shoots that hawk out of the sky. I can go on for hours on how dumb all of the ‘hunting’ stuff is. But let’s move on My main point here, is the elusion of depth and delving into a lifestyle previously unexplored in the franchise. They clearly didn’t do any research on anything they were doing. And showed a lot of stupidity in the writing and direction, pertaining to Native people in this time period. So any praise they receive is completely unwarranted. All in all, I was able to turn off the logical part of my brain, suspend my disbelief and think of it only as an entertaining endeavor. And it was entertaining, sometimes you just gotta appreciate a simple dumb action movie for what it is. B+ entertainment C- or worse quality movie

Wow. This is the best breakdown of this movie that I've seen. Spot on in every aspect. The only thing he missed, as far as I can tell, is that in 90+% of Native American tribes, women could ALREADY be hunters. I mean, this particular tribe, I guess maybe not? Or these particular warriors are jerks? But it is WAY more likely that it would have been ZERO problem for her to be a warrior, so I have no idea if these filmmakers did ANY research. The very least they could have done was add a line like "if this were that tribe next to us over yonder I wouldn't have any trouble being a warrior, why are you guys such jerks?" But to leave it out entirely just tells us that these filmmakers thought 21st century ideology was more important than realism.

@Mr Graves No no I totally agree the original felt more "grounded" in a sense cuz it went from these ultra buff action hero navy SEAL badasses making jokes and blowing up clueless bad guys but then it became a horror movie as the tables were turned. The original Predator does some genius script flipping where the guys who we would expect to be unstoppable killing machines dropping one liners throughout the whole movie are suddenly made into scared animals running around the forest shooting everything that moves as they get picked off one by one. Seeing these big guys who seem indestructible talk about how they're scared is terrifying cuz even the strongest amongst us feel helpless and terrified. I think where Prey falls flat for me is seeing a relatively normal group of people who are just pretty good at hunting and fighting and aren't established as like the best of the best available right at the beginning makes it feel less like "Oh my God even these elites are terrified of what's happening" and more like "Well yea, they're regular ass people of course they'd be scared". You could make the argument that the film is trying to show the temerity and will to survive in regular people and how they can push themselves to overcome anything, but again that concept has been done to death in so many movies now it's gone tepid.

@Mello - I think they did go for more “style” than was needed in Prey. I watch the original and see the boys actually in the midst of a detective movie for much of it - taking clues and adjusting their actions based on each encounter / new bit of info. As potentially stupid as this may sound, I think the original seems more realistic due to the decision making, and also the interactions between the team. However, they were there to do a job as the best of the best of the best so you’d expect that. Very interesting topic, decision making in films. It is usually where you can gain or lose an audience.

It makes total sense seeing how the one hunter who was talking was killed giving his element of surprise away. Talking isn’t needed when the movie treats its character as they have history between one another. No need to talk of issues that matter elsewhere or just happen beyond the story like normal people. It’s a serious moment where being quiet is the best skill and makes total logical sense from a critics too. U don’t say cringe material and at the same time has logical explanations in the story itself. It’s the furthest thing from being a bad thing.

My brother ALREADY had a Predator spear , but instead of taking advantage of the moment and punching the predator 's head or neck , he knocked down the mask , and very easily the mask of a MEGA advanced alien flew off his face When the heroine is nearby , the Predator instantly completely loses speed , reaction , reflexes , strength and coordination - it was very noticeable and infuriating

I enjoyed the film, but found the Predator's motives inconsistent at times. It almost seemed like they'd join forces and meet a common enemy or something.

Historically, they were pragmatic and fairly cooperative in comparison to other colonies.

@Chocov 123 They also traded with many Native tribes, their whole historical trait and video game trait in colonialism is like, friendly relations with natives and trading stuff with them. While the French-Indian War happened, they didn't quite blame the Americans, and even helped when victory was assured so they could get revenge on Britain for the losses prior. But yeah, I was surprised. The Spanish were more realistically anti-native and very hostile. This made native tribes more hostile to outsiders in response. British were kind of neutral, I guess. They kind of made allies, but also enemies among the natives. The Dutch folks I have no idea, they're more trade oriented as well and sold their stuff to Britain if I recall.

@John Doe For Predator standards yeah but tbh people place too much emphasis on the elements of a movie that have the least amount of judgement over the quality of it nowadays. If I’m keeping it real I really don’t give a shit if a movie is considered “woke” as long as the themes it tackles are complex and engaging enough for me to enjoy it. On top of that people forget the most important part of a film, the filmmaking itself. If you knew the director’s (Dan Trachtenberg) previous work you would know that he’s an excellent filmmaker and especially amazing at building suspense in a movie. The most important part of a movie is definitely the director especially considering how it’s easy to tell how much influence the director has in the movie when considering someone like Chloe Zhao who made an Oscar winning film and won best director can have her name attached to boring gunk such as “Eternals”. You can tell her creativeness and her directing skills were ruined by the studio meddling it has.

@John Doe I wouldn’t trust the audience reviews either. A lot of audiences have biases outside of the quality of the filmmaking qualities and many can’t judge a whole movie but only judge it based on one part. It’s kind of like how audiences absolutely despise “It Comes at Night” because of the movies ambiguous nature and mostly due to the ending not being a “happy end” in a traditional sense. Also with the movie “Nope”. For some reason audiences hate that fact that they weren’t spoon fed the story and themes like in “Get Out” and “Us”. Personally, I just watch reviews of some of my favorite movie reviewers on YouTube since I agree with their opinions a lot of the time and even when I don’t I can understand why they feel a certain way because of the way they thoroughly explain their points as compared to random audience reviews on a sire that are prone to review bombing. Tbh I wouldn’t get off put by a movie unless it has a 30% or lower tomatometer or audience consensus. One of my favorite movies “Under the Silver Lake” only has a 58% tomato meter and 56% critic consensus. Even a movie such as “the cell” which has a 45 tomato and 57 audience rating was given a 4/4 masterpiece rating by Roger Elbert (considered the best movie critic of all time by most).

10:20...Exactly, and what we have is a 21st century woman with 21st century female thinking processes dressing up and posing as an 18th century native american instead of us getting, you know...an actress that actually portrays an 18th century native american woman in all the ways that make sense and are historically accurate and does it with good acting skill. Believe you me, NO female in a tribe at that time would even remotely be doing anything that this character did in the movie, not even a little bit. If you want an accurate picture of what females in tribes did, go watch Dances With Wolves, seriously. I'm tired of modern Hollywood film makers trying to add female empowerment to every damn thing they make. It's not realistic, it's not likeable, and it's tired as sh**.

To me, this is like Black Panther all over again. The movie is just passable (unlike say, Lady Ghosbusters) and it carries the right "message", therefore the critics go absolutely crazy as if it was a masterpiece. If you replace the main actress by a native guy, the Tomatometer drops below 70%.

​@Jackson Davies | Digital Artist I wouldn't call it woke. I'd say it uses a lot of feminist tropes, the men all being assholes to the woman who wants to prove herself, and does prove herself better than any of them. It's just a bad movie, by the old standards. I guess by the new standards of streaming content it's okay. Edit: Actually, changed my mind. It definitely fits into the "woke" trend with all the feminist tropes. Men are all trash and all die and the women survive and it's implied at the end that they are happier because of it. Reminds me of that shit Matt Damon Adam Driver movie where at the end they basically say that, because the men have died in war and combat the women can live in peace and be happy. "I don't need no man!" That's wokeness personified.

I had hoped when they decided they wanted to set Comanches up against the Predator because of the martial reputation of the Comanche. You get a tribe that, in surprisingly small numbers, managed to push back Spanish and French settlements in the lower plains because of their military prowess and terrifying reputation. And that does seem perfect if you have an antagonist that is looking for a worthy opponent. And then they just didn't do anything with that. It's a huge disappointment. I still liked the movie but it really feels like they had a great idea and then threw it away because one young woman vs Predator was more the imaging they were going for.

A movie in 2022 with a female protagonist that we see fail several times, have to learn from others, and ultimately fight along-side a male in order to win.

The MC has no weaknesses? The Predator literally ignores her because she's so weak and unthreatening. It encounters her several times, and she's too scared to even take a shot at it until it kills her brother. What makes the movie interesting (aside from the part she says out loud), is that this is the first time a character in a Predator movie has had the option NOT to be hunted and fought the Predator anyway. Predators only hunt other predators, so anyone that recognizes this fact can usually play dead and be ignored until "the hero" takes care of it. When she was trying to be a hunter/predator just to prove herself to no one in particular, it was so hollow that the Predator saw through it immediately and killed everyone around her for sport instead. That was *the point.* They are basically calling out the shallow female characters you hate through her character arc, and you think she doesn't have one? When she resolves to risk her life to prevent the Predator from eventually killing the rest of the hunters in her tribe, she steps into being a real hunter herself. And she wins that fight because the Predator gave her so much leeway and knowledge of its tools before that fight happened, on top of literally turning its back on her, that she'd have to be supremely incompetent to still lose. The opportunities that came from being treated as "prey" are properly leveraged in a satisfying and fresh conclusion. If they did a similar smackdown fight to the first two movies, this movie would have no reason to exist. On a related note, I'm assuming the Predator had never fought humans prior to this point, so a human being smart enough to use its weapons against it never came up. If a rabbit pulled a Bugs Bunny and sabotaged your hunting rifle, you may fall for something similar with it being so far removed from your typical expectations. So I don't see it shooting itself as contrived of an ending as you do.

@Anthony Allmond Coping? LOL. Quite the opposite. From context, it looks like The Drinker saw female, minority protagonist in the trailer and publicly wrote this movie off as garbage. When it turned out to be above average (especially for a direct-to-streaming flick) he threw out those half-assed critiques that I pointed out because he had to feel like his knee-jerk reaction to the trailer was somewhat justified. I hadn't heard of this movie until my cousin texted me saying it was pretty good. Without any bias from the trailer or SJW hatred, I also found the movie to be pretty good - top two Predator sequels easily. The characters are all super simple, but a lot of the other sequels were cash grabs that didn't bother to do that much. If this guy is really rallying for Hollywood to do better, he should be a bit more objective and not just hammer against THE MESSAGE (even when it's not intruding on the plot) because that's what his audience wants.

Totally agree with the point that there were hints of a better story which never came to fruition. For me it was the bit where her mother tells her hunting isn't about proving a point, it's about surviving. I would have liked to see her realise she was being an ass and decide to go after the predator because members of her tribe start getting picked off, rather than because she saw it had skinned a snake. It the tribe was under threat and they ignore the danger, it would force her to go look for proof of the predator and risk herself for their survival. Just like how the tribe viewed the lion after it took one of them. Instead she journeys far from the tribe, to seek out a large unknown creature that may not pose any threat to the tribe. Not a great plan. And her finale is returning to the tribe with the head of an animal nobody would recognise, not bothering to tell them (as far as we see) what happened or that her brother and the other hunters were killed, just dumps the head and their response is "looks like we got a new war chief, yippee"? Why didn't she run to her mother and break the terrible news? Why didn't they share a moment of emotion? Because Hollywood says that women who have emotion can't be badass, they need to repress it like dumb men. And instead of paying off the setup of "hunting isn't about proving a point, it's about surviving" by having her say something about understanding why survival matters or how she doesn't want to lose anyone else, she finishes her story by being given a big stick and a new title while everyone cheers, because that's what Hollywood thinks makes a good payoff/ending. Well, except for the credits where they rehash the story in cartoon and revealed the real ending of 3 predator ships dropping down on the tribe, presumably to wipe them out and collect the pistol?

​@Sandman_says_Run, Runner I did some reading on this interesting topic and it seems that we were both wrong. I don't know what you base your "realistic and historical facts" on but this is in a nutshell what I found out about that period: 1. They were not military or navy men, they were traders working for big trading companies or independently 2. French fur traders were mostly buying skins from natives, were quite friendly with them and cared about good relationships, they wore a mix of European and native, leather clothing and even lived with them and started families with native women. 3. British on the other hand were only superficially friendly while it suited them and were there for profit only so, theoretically it would be possible to stumble upon a group such as the one in the movie but it would likely be British, not French 4. there was no nobles amongst fur traders, as one historian noted, “most of these (British) traders were the very scum of the earth.” Many were notorious for being cheats and crooks engaging in dubious trade tactics. British Superintendent of Indian Affairs William Johnson frequently complained that these “men of lowest means” manipulated weights when dealing with Native Americans to secure a better profit, casting a shadow on the reputation of all British traders. Traders working for the Hudson’s Bay Company frequently fiddled with their report numbers to increase their returns. While the French overall enjoyed a very familial, friendly trade, British traders were abrasive and often pushed trade away with their greediness. if anyone want's to read more https://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1583&context=mcnair

@Daniel Hill Holy literal Batman. Did you actually think I was suggesting it was due to a nuclear explosion?! That was a descriptor, not a causality. Give your head a shake. What Drinker's and my point being is that there was no set up as to WHY it was in that condition, only that it WAS. Obviously it was due to fire. But was it the French, burn-off from the Predator's ship landing, natural, ... ?! You made the ASSUMPTION that it was the French. Does your THEORY fit? Sure, as much as my other two theories do, and it would have taken literally 5 seconds to show that in the film. In the end, by not taking that 5 seconds to show the reason for the condition is weak story telling.

@Daniel Hill Um, no. The vast majority of commissioned officers (army, navy) were nobles with a few lower commissioned positions for the lower nobility and higher bourgeoisie.

I watched the movie, gave it a chance, sure it's entertaining with a pretty cinematography, but can't ignore the fact that it indeed has the typical "woman being better and stronger than everyone else" with the biggest plot armor I've ever scene. She is getting body slammed by the predator, who can casually fight and lift a 400kg bear like nothing, and she is left intact with no broken bones, no organ failure, no knockout, no left unconscious. She dominated her axe throwing in like less than a day. She's always talking about proving that she can hunt but we only really see her hunt rabbits successfully. There is a conversation with her brother about how she has always been smart, even tho in the course of the whole movie she should've died three times because of her bad choices. Her brother saving her from the lion , dog saving her from the bear, the predator also saving her by pure coincidence from the bear. Also her killing off like 6-7 grown man with perfect reflexes out of nowhere when the first half of the movie she's been a bit useless is not believable at all.

Cheers Drinker 🍻 I was overjoyed when I saw that this had been made. I must have been under a rock not realising it was in development. Going in no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised...compared to previous outings. I think that's best way to do so. It's like going to the video store (back in the day) walking past the new release, grabbing 5 weeklies for $5 and finding one of the awesome 80s movies you always wanted to watch but hadn't gotten around to. You watch it and really enjoy parts of it but then think jeez, I forgot this was a Van Damme/Cynthia Rothrock flick (read slightly overpowered) 🙄 Good with the bad I guess 😏 The storyline is similar to graphic novels in the AVP universe set in similar timeframes which is why the story actually was "more" of a story, albeit very brief in length of said story. That also helped a bit, well, slightly in watering down the endless stream of "The Message" that is literally everywhere of late. Thanks Drinker...always a pleasure hearing your lovely accented verbal flensing of the deserving 😆 Sometimes it's just nice hearing an opinion being spoken plainly and unapologetically. As an Aussie I could listen to you reading the phone book and I'd feel comforted. Must be my ancestral yearning. Love your work mate 👍

Actually the film could have gone in the direction of brother + sister together defeating the predator. It was even highlighted in the film that their skills have a good synergy. It would bring something new to the table at least.

That would been the better lesson/take away. If I wrote the movie I'd had them overcome it together. They were their strongest as a team. She was the idea person, and he was the one with the skills and strength to achieve the victory she could come up with. Instead of her trying replace him, she'd realize being at his side was her greatest strength.

"The Last of the Mohicans" score was as recognizable as green blood, especially in the Comanche camp scenes. Likely because it was used as "Temp Score" in the early editing stages and then they didn't have the time or budget to compose something entirely new (or because the studio lazily said 'write it like that'). Great review as always and pretty good film considering.

You know where I thought the story was going at first? I thought that the main character would initially desire to be a hunter and fighter, for the explicit purpose of protecting her village. Then she has her life-changing fight with the Predator to save that village, which leaves her with a permanent injury but sets her up to LEAD her village and train strong fighters, and so protect it that way. I thought the violent tone of the movie was established to have something happen to the main character. But that's tricky to pull off, what director could be depended on to tell that story? So yeah, It's been said many times, that this is a workable and solid movie, with decent pacing and action. But the ONLY reason it is getting effusive praise is because so many other "strong female action lead" movies are unworkable messes. But don't get me wrong, I don't HATE that this is getting praise, I would love to see more "simple stories told well" out of Hollywood. Including those with strong female leads. Oh, and as an aside, I thought it was a great point about the overall theme of the original Predator: Dutch and the team are massively cocky and overconfident, then they are demolished by the Predator, then Dutch overcomes in the end. Prey is missing that kind of characterization, and missing that "movement" in the narrative.

I would argue that the lack of characterization is actually due to the fact that they are Native Americans being portrayed on the screen. Due to our history people are scared to portray them in any way that could be offensive and the result is that they don't even come across as human which is what they were trying to avoid to begin with. It's the same thing with women everyone's scared to write a female character with flaws these days and they don't come across as a person anymore because of it. Everyone's terrified of cancel culture and backlash to the point where they don't even want to touch on the subject of characterization for certain groups.

I really liked this predator. You could tell it was a 'rookie', cutting it's teeth, working its way through the food chain. When it fought the wolf it got bit on the leg. When it fought the bear it got bashed about. It made mistakes, telling us the playing field is level. It had probably had it up to here with trying to kill this girl, getting frustrated as it tries to prove itself over and over again. I think it was a really smart way to get killed off by its own tech. People are annoyed at this but it had just had it's arm cut off! It was desperate and probably not thinking about his laser hat. I like the movie.

The ending to this really threw me off, she literally turns into Neo from The Matrix and completely kicks the shit out of this huge Predator that's effortlessly mowed through an army of heavily armed men with ease. I heard nothing but praise for this film, including from Nate at Mr H reviews who I usually trust and once again, I was really disappointed with it. It's better then The predator or AVP2 but I'd have it behind every other Predator film. I also thought some of the effects were really cheap looking, the bear, The lion and the Wolf looked fake as fuck. I've seen quite a few reviews on here claiming it's better than the original which is fucking laughable, it's NO WHERE NEAR as good as Predator 1, not even remotely close.

8:49 i agree about the depiction. However, since the main character(s) are native americans; i took it that the film was depicting the French as such because it was from the perspective of how the native americans saw them in the movie. If i were watching a western then i too would assume that we’re watching from the perspective of the cowboys and thus why in those movies it’s the native americans who are “savage”.

This movie was definitely about average, like you said. And I’m so happy you mentioned how shit “the predator” was. The thing about that movie is that it’s not just bad, it’s also insulting and pandering. The fact that the predator only wants to challenge a kid because he’s autistic and thinks differently (at least I think that’s what it’s motive was) was such a slap in the face. I also have autism, so seeing representation like that was insulting. At least the worst thing prey did was make the main character kinda bland.

The "smart" guys always have a blind spot for "the message". Just considering this even near "good" requires not looking at it objectively. This movie is so dumb that the predator is more like a too eager brawler. Doesn't even hunt whatsoever, he just goes by killing and fighting animals without any smart or strategic approach. No skills to the test, just strength.

Just watched it, it was good, but not great. By the end of it I keep wondering what makes a Yuatja/Predator so great when they have so much advanced technology, but always end up getting killed by the end of the film? They keep following the same formula and at this point the Predator doesn't feel like a threat anymore. With all the smart tech and invisibility cloak it just makes me think the predators are just too dumb to hunt humans period. While I appreciate seeing Native culture being represented on screen and we need more female leads, I didn't think this was the best place for it. That should have been a different story about hunting wolves or another animal. We already must suspend belief in the first film when Vietnam vet Dutch must learn how to out smart the creature and use his environment to create traps to kill the Predator. In this film we see the Predator out wrestle and kill a wolf and a bear, kill several experienced Native American hunters and several French hunters. Naru couldn't kill a mountain lion and is knocked out, nearly drowns in quick sand, nearly killed by a bear, is captured by the French hunters, uses a gun for the first time, steals the Predator's mask, and manages to take him down into quick sand? It was all a bit much for me in the end. I understand how some of the early failures are to make Naru a bit more relatable not a "Mary Sue" but I think her biggest character flaw/conflict was her pride. This movie is not unlike the movie Lightyear. Buzz Lightyear is impulsive and doesn't want to work with new cadets or rely on anyone. By the end of the film he realizes he doesn't have all the answers, he must rely on others and becomes a leader in the process. It was clearly a jab at men being too stubborn at times, and I thought it rang true and a had a good message. Naru is just as impulsive, selfish and stubborn, however she didn't learn from her mistakes and is just out to prove she can hunt just as good or better than the men. Her brother and clan are killed in the process, but she doesn't shed a tear for them, but instead walks back triumphantly after killing the Predator because she is now a better hunter than the people she lost along the way. Now for my rankings: 1. Predator (1987) 2. Predators (2010) non canon - Alien vs Predator (2004) 3. Predator 2 (1990) 4. Prey (2022) non canon - Aliens vs Predator: Requiem (2007) 5. The Predator (2018)

@Alex_G9885 It is sad how the number of French people who were wounded and died in WWI is glossed over in the USA. When you try to put it into scale, it is amazing that their country did not collapse before the 2nd war. Language was a big barrier even through the early 1900s.

I propose rewriting the title of this movie to: "The Pathetic Bear." The poor storytelling that wracked this movie from beginning to end was not that a small woman could not only take the punishment of the predator, and then dish it in kind, but actually, the problem was that the bear shouldn't have taken it at all. The unrealism of this movie began with the silly bear, and the writers' completely disregard for normal laws of cause and effect is the main reason why all of the other scenes feel so unrealistic. One of the greatest rules in all fantasy writing is that you can create any laws you want, but then all of the characters must follow them. Nobody in the story may be allowed to break the fictional "magic" or "super strength" laws, or else the story becomes unrealistic and you are pulled out of it as you try to enjoy it. Once that the predator can break a bear like a toy, it then has virtually no upper limit. Characters with no upper limit cannot be wounded or destroyed by anything less than a meteor or ex machina event, therefore, when the character takes wounds from silly things like knives or spears, or even bullets, it feels incongruous with the character that can rip a bear apart. A great piece of storytelling is to define limits even of seemingly impervious characters, and that could have been done so easily with a long and drawn out battle between the predator and the bear. This could also have given the predator a wound that the natives could have exploited. Ideally, the battle with the bear should have happened halfway through the movie, after much horror and suspense.
