Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, "Prey" is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

I'm a Predator fan since the beginning. Did I think they needed another film? No. But am I glad they did? OH YEAH!

We don't get Hulu but our youngest daughter has an account and let us watch!
Prey is the same as all the other Predator movies but it is new too. Set 300 years before the original Predator movie, the alien lands on Comanche land. How can this young woman fight a Predator? This Predator isn't as advanced as the ones in the previous movies. He doesn't have the armor.

I LOVED the character Naru. The actress, Amber Midthunder, was fabulous and fierce. Prey is as much a coming-of-age movie as it is an action-packed, violent, Sci-fi film. The story moves at a slower pace...which is perfect for this story. But the underlying sense of suspense and doom from start to finish.

If you love the Predator franchise, then you'll most likely enjoy this one too :)

My husband gave it 3 1/2 sheep because of the slower pace

I give it 4 1/2 "This is as far as you go. No More. This is it." Sheep
