Things You Might Have Liked About Prey (2022)

The Actors

Since the film is based entirely on the Natives of America, casting people from the same origin was very thoughtful. It added sincerity to the narrative. Also, it pretty much added conventional sophistication to the plot.

Now, the actors were nice, they were simply appropriate to the roles in which they were placed. They were good.

The Characters

Now, the Native American characters were some fighters. They projected valiance and terrific determination in reaching their goals which were pretty motivating and inspiring as well. Yes, there was the dominance of patriarchy throughout which kind of made the lead prove her potentiality. But her supportive family was again a blessing for her.

Taabe was a very good big brother who nurtured his sibling, the lead of the film, Naru with the purest brotherly affection. He trusted her instincts and believed in her capability, unlike the others in the tribe. Similarly, Naru reciprocated the affection with respect and love which was very warm of course. Taabe represented the ‘Brawl’ while Naru was the ‘Brain’ of their team. It was a great sibling situation with was genuinely cordial.

The Story

The story was very interesting and there is no need to watch the first 4 of the franchisee to understand its narrative. You can simply sit and relax, enjoying this sorted directorial scheme by Dan Trachtenberg who took a slow yet engaging pace to make the storyline direct, clear, and easygoing.

The story is nothing tough to understand in the first place. The central theme revolves around a tribe who survives their daily chore with the indigenous idea of hunting. Now, a teen named Naru in order to prove her worth to be a good hunter, achieves the idea that there is someone bigger than a lion around, who is on its killing spree. Being a girl she was shut down many times, but she takes her own journey to find out what’s the fact.

She is proven right when she finally comes face to face with the Predator. And when the movie ends, she lands victorious on her breakthrough as a hunter. Definitely, there is more to the story which is deep, very gory, cruel, and brutal but very engrossing as well. However, the thrilling charm might be missing.
