NOC Review: Amber Midthunder Hits Her Target Dead On in ‘Prey’

The Predator film franchise centered on the clash between its race of a highly evolved race of aliens who hunt alphas for sport versus man. While its predecessors were as bloody and violent as the next, Dan Trachtenberg’s Prey goes back to basics with a primal and bloody David vs. Goliath story that not only is worthy of being a part of the iconic franchise but something could stand on its own thanks to Amber Midthunder’s astonishing performance that subverts tropes in a way that finally makes indigenous cultures the heroes of their own story.

‘Prey’ Cast and Crew on Breaking Barriers in the ‘Predator’ Franchise

The Predator movies of the past have featured some soldiers of fortune being hunted by its titular alien race of hunters seeking to add to their trophy case. But in Prey, director Dan Trachtenberg takes a different approach to that dynamic by setting the film 300 years in the Comanche nation and follows Naru (Amber Midthunder), a fierce and highly skilled warrior who will do anything to protect her tribe, including hunting a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal. The result is a primal David and Goliath match unlike anything we’ve ever seen from the Predator franchise.

NOC Review: Manners Maketh ‘The King’s Man’

It’s truly unfortunate that after so many delays, The King’s Man is finally going to see the light of day by living in the shade of an epic (and truly incredible) Spidey movie that will dominate the box office for weeks to come. And quite frankly, any non-Spidey attention will likely go to The Matrix Resurrections, which is also hitting theaters on the same day. But if I can make the case for a movie that will likely be buried by stiff competition and rising resurgence of COVID concerns, the film isn’t actually half bad.
