I literally just came on here to post about this movie.
As a fan of the franchise since Dutch first locked hands with Dillon, I am so happy that this film was made.
Loved the intimate story, and the character development of Naru. Im hoping to see more period pieces like this film, in the Predator franchise.
I love Predator, am a big fan of Predator 2, I enjoy Predators, and will not speak of the The Predator.
Imo, this film is the 3rd best Predator film, behind #1, and closely behind #2 (perhaps in time, with a few more viewings, it will be on par with #2). Thoroughly pleased with the film. However, I felt something was off with the Predators mandibles. They were to large, vertically, on his face, imo. But, not an overly poor design choice.
Im also happy that Naru had to deal with, and overcome a lot of adversity. I liked her character arc, and character growth, which is very lacking in a lot of films today.
The director has stated that the Yautja in Prey is from a different hemisphere on Yautja Prime (Predators home planet), which he said is the reason for the design change. The Yautja in Prey is being titled as the ‘Feral Predator’.
@monopolyjackson …The story of the movie is told by the cave drawings seen in the background as the end credits role… except the cave drawings go a scene or two past the ending of the movie that we saw on screen. The last cave drawings show multiple Predator scout ships arriving on Earth after Naru is named Warrior Chieftain. Its definitely set up for a sequel. Whether that’s the sequel we want to see is another question all on its own.
