    I thought Prey was....just okay. 5/10

    CONS:
    Death by soundtrack.
    CGI looked too fake and was relied on too much
    Too much "people fighting against each other " and not enough "hunted by predator"
    First half of movie was too slow
    Too much of a feminism statement in the beginning
    The gore was pretty soft

    PROS
    Story was okay.
    Characters were pretty good.
    Not much was stupid
    There was gore
    Costumes and visuals seemed pretty accurate for the period

    It didn't suck, but it's not really worthy of all the praise it's receiving

    Great movie. The little nods to the original were nice too.

    I didn’t realize native Americans’ primary language back then was English and only used their native tongue mainly for talking to the dog. lol

    Went in with no expectations, and was surprised it wasn't the woke garbage it was anticipated to be.

    I enjoyed it.

    Y'all talking about Predator 2 easter eggs have it all wrong.

    There was an easter egg in this but it wasn't for Predator 2.

    This tribe was the birth of the Shirai Ryu clan

    Other than that though, the movie's getting a lot of praise for its accuracy on the Comanches -- the producer is part Comanches, part Blackfoot, apparently and prioritized getting it historically accurate (I mean, for people who are into that... which I am... but I haven't seen it yet).

    It was overall good. Bad CGI in some areas but overall good visuals and fight scenes.

    Didn't have the Dolby turned on.

    There wasn’t a ton of CGi, which I liked. The Predator cloaking was very good IMO.

    It’s weird that CGI seems to be going backwards in quality. District 9 came out in 2009 and had better CGI than most movies/shows these days. The only reason I can think of is cost cutting. CGI used to be a big part of budgets but now any nerd with a powerful Mac can do it. It’s an art, not a program.

    And kills all the humans

    My idea is that the next predator movie is in the future and the humans created skynet to fight the predators
    That way you can bring back terminator and not make it stupid like the last movie
    @Xerobull
    And bring back Danny glover

    There wasn't much CGI but it didn't look well when they applied to the animals IMO.

    It was the perfect runtime.

    I thought there was a LOT of CGI and the animals especially looked fake. If the CGI had looked realistic, I would have enjoyed it a LOT more.
