    I thought it was crazy when you got people like Ray Chase, Nathan Baesel, and the cast of Host in your kill counts. Hell, you even got the predator himself (Dane Dilliegro) in this one too. But it's absolutely mindblowing that you also got freakin' Santa Claus to show up during the sponsored segment. Seriously, HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS JAMES?????

      Too bad they change the culture for the purposes of just making a "strong wahman" character. Granted it's Predator so some imagination can be played with, but if the point is to show the commanche's culture, they screwed up

    It would be sick if they kept making movies in this style. There's so many they could. Samurai, Viking, Roman/Greek, Masai, Aztec. Honestly any historic civilization that had warriors could be really cool.

    • Scxurge

      In Predator Hunting Grounds there a Predator variants of the Vikings, Samurai, Egyptian, and some others if that's what your referring too

      being from South Africa, heavy bias :P but i would love a "Dark Continent" style Predator movie with, like you mentioned , maybe a Maasai tribe, if we are heading to the more arid areas, or the heavy cultural influences of north africa. unrelated to that, but i do think, we need at least one movie where the predator wins? like, damn Pred, maybe dont come to earth. Or i guess maybe thats why they keep on coming back :P Homosapien be badass.

  • KingBlackthorn
    KingBlackthorn 5 months ago +1661

    Some things to note that I was shocked were not mentioned:
    -The scene with the buffalo is actually extremely important as in native tradition it is extremely insulting to kill an animal and not use as much of it is as possible. The animal essentially gave its life for yours and it is horrid to just waste it away
    -Really feel that Amber’s monologue to the French man before she attacks the predator should have been highlighted. It was so well done.

    • Unboxing Alyss

      James did mention it. He said it was "based on the real life near-extinction of the bison".

      @Unboxing Alyss He mentioned that, he did not mention the importance of using everything possible on an animal that was killed by you. Difference.

    Fun fact: The Feral Predator (to my knowledge) actually broke one of the yautja's honor codes. It was established in the source material that if they come across a worthy opponent, they must de-cloak and face them head-on. Since the Feral Predator actually re-cloaked after the brother displayed being worthy and killed him while cloaked, he would be considered a bad blood and would be banished or killed.
    Side note: Take this with a grain of salt

    • ツPlasma
      ツPlasma Month ago +10

      I don't think it's one of the more punishable rules of the Code, such as killing an unarmed individual would be. Pretty sure the Jungle Hunter did something similar multiple times

    • TheLethalVO
      TheLethalVO 27 days ago +7

      It's good to see other people knowing more about the Yautja lore.

    • irishgotee
      irishgotee 25 days ago +3

      Also fun fact!
      That dog wouldn't be able to stagger a 8ft 300lb yautja.

    • Prehistoric Hero
      Prehistoric Hero 19 days ago

      No, that doesn’t count on breaking the Honor Code when you read it carefully. If you think of this, then you completely ignore that City Hunter have done reckless things, such as slaughtering armed civilians inside a subway filled with people while cloaked, the same way the Feral Predator can, and he doesn’t even break the Honor Code. Stop saying a Feral Predator is a Bad Blood when he's just a Young Blood!

    • MagnusTonitrum
      MagnusTonitrum 19 days ago +1

      I don’t know if he follows the same rules as those like the Jungle Hunter, as he is a more primitive Yautja from an entirely different biome of Yautja Prime, and likely a different tribe or society as a result

    Fun little attention in the movie the French persons actually speak old French which resembles Canadian french, as a french Canadian myself I appreciated that they didn’t just use french people from France and took the time to get the accent right

    Such a sick Kill count!!!!! I had the pleasure of playing the flintlock-pistol toting Raphael in the movie. I've only ever watched the movie once because it was so stressful to watch my performance here, haha 😄. This breakdown let me enjoy the whole thing again in a different way! I get so emotional when Naru does that final victory scream 😭 Thanks so much for making this! It was a pleasure to watch and enjoy!!!

    • TheLethalVO
      TheLethalVO 3 months ago +16

      @BENTAYMAN My pleasure! Prey was the best follow up since Predator 2, because you and the cast really nailed it. Plus, one of my dreams is to star in the franchise, so seeing people who have beginnings in all kinds of areas really inspires me. Hopefully, I'll be able to be in one once I graduate college.

    I loved how tight the script was and how everything was set up to help Naru defeat the Predator! The orange flower, the bog, the bear-trap which led to the fur-trappers, the pistol - it was all so efficiently written. I also love how, at the end, Naru gives the Predator's mask and the settler's gun equal status in proving her worth as a warrior - to her, both were predatory forces in the land that she had to destroy.

    • Noah Da. Ark
      Noah Da. Ark Month ago +3

      It also helps that Naru isn’t some perfect little badass who gets everything right first try. She learns from her mistakes and improves over the course of the film, which helps makes her victory over the Predator all the more satisfying & earned

      Marc Ohare 5 months ago +11

      @Matt B Agreed! We can disagree without being children. Now; I figured James would mention the closing credits because he usually doles out tons of info and this would be an item of interest.

    • Jeremy Rugg
      Jeremy Rugg 3 months ago +3

      The other thing that was missing that I would say was not drawing attention to a major Predator thing that I loved was that he would only use weapons that he saw equal to the tech of his enemy. I saw say because we all know preds are basically big game hunters pretending like they aren't cheating and who the fuck that he fights does invis? But he uses his blades on the snake, wolf and bear, upgrades to his ranged weaponry against the comanche who are using arrows, and then uses nets and explosives on the french who use gunpowder tech. Also, not necessary but was my favorite part, that bear at first bodied the predator and almost won. He won the first round, at least.

    I'm not going to lie, when she made it back to camp with the Predator's head to warn her people, I was tearing up. When she was declared the new Warrior chef, I sobbed. She not only deserved it, she earned it.

    Coolest kill in my opinion was when the predator picked up a bear trap and threw it at a guys head crushing him. That whole forest scene was badass

      I can definitely see Disney making a deadliest warriors or assassin creed like predator anthology series set in historical eras. Pirates, Samurai, Romans, etc. While yes it been explore in comics, this would definitely let more people into the franchise if filmmakers do it right

  • chavesa5
    chavesa5 4 months ago +18

    Prey is almost certainly going to be the high watermark for the Predator franchise. Everything about it works. It's all killer, no filler. You can tell everyone really showed up and understood their assignment, and executed magnificently. When a movie can literally recycle lines from the first one and I don't get pulled out because it's clear they're making the lines their own? That's the sign of some great fucking filmmaking. Highest commendations to everyone on that team and a hope that they all get the chance to make more projects if they have more stories to tell.

  • munky
    munky 4 months ago +16

    One thing I love about this movie is that in the scene with the bear, you see her notice that she’s downwind which makes her draw her bow in the first place. Amazing attention to detail.

    • Michael D'Antonio
      Michael D'Antonio 2 months ago +3

      That’s one of the few scenes that I didn’t like, we’ve always seen Yautja fight with honor and “grace” so seeing it brawl the bear to death seems out of character, but like James said, it’s this Yautja’s first time on earth, so it could be inexperience and young pride that made it do that

  • Tyler Luvs Cinema
    Tyler Luvs Cinema 5 months ago +23

    Hands down one of my favorite films of the year. And the Comanche dub, the best viewing experience obviously. One thing I love between both the English dub and the Comanche dub is that you can't understand the French trappers in either version because you don't need to. They're cannon fodder and nothing more. Even in the Comanche dub their subtitles are in French. But the biggest shoutout has to go to Amber Midthunder. Her performance was fantastic!

    • Jay Reynolds
      Jay Reynolds 2 months ago +1

      I think when asked why they didn't shoot the movie in the Comanche language, Dakota Beavers admitted most of the actors weren't fluent enough to do it like that. I can respect that. It's an old language. That said, I absolutely love the work put in to preserve the culture by recording that dub.

  • McMuffin Booper
    McMuffin Booper 5 months ago +705

    I hate how so many weirdos wouldn't give this film a fair unbiased view because "poc female protag" and straight up complained about her being able to do what a group of burly soldiers couldn't while ignoring she actively grows her skills across the film and doesn't kill the Predator the first time they ever encounter eachother.
    This is genuinely an amazing film and opens the possibility of us going into other eras of time in future installments like vikings or feudal Japan

    • hefoughtabear
      hefoughtabear 5 months ago +85

      RETRO the predator was able to punch Arnie multiple times and he survived. Thats just as plausible as amber taking those hits as the predator would be able to punch the head off of any human no matter their size. And she goes from a wannabe hunter to a hunter. Its the most simple piece of character development yet throughout hundreds of films how do you not see it here

      Not only that, but on an artistic level it added a realism and heart to the movie that I feel really separates it from the other Predator sequels and a lot of action movies in general.

This was truly an amazing Predator movie and a hilarious kill count to cover it.

You have made me love horror movies again, thank you so much for that James.

    Loved the video, but there is one tiny mistake made in the count. At 16:36 with the 3 guys, the one who gets his leg cut in the background is Raphael Adolini. He doesn't die there as he shows up later at the camp and dies, as you counted. So you counted him twice by accident.

      I'd hope you'd feel more represented by acts of kindness, bravery and heroism. Rather something as frivolous as skin colour or ethnicity. But since you went there, did you forget that Billy in the original '87 movie was Native American?

      @tagus100 They never said anything about the older movies not having Billy, they just mentioned how this movie was centered around native people and how that's a great feeling. Also where did you get the idea they only appreciate the fact they are from similar "ethnicity and skin colour" instead of how brave and heroic the characters were? They said the movie made them feel happy, not that they only liked the action scenes.

    I’m not a member of the Comanche tribe, but all native across Turtle Island were cheering and hollering the whole time watching this movie. It feels so good getting media attention in a more positive human spotlight cause traditionally we are just cannon fodder or like zombies to just kill cause we are in the way. This movie was so fun to watch. Thanks for covering it. (Also little side note they dubbed the whole movie in the Comanche language which is so cool!)

      Bro every race has their turn to be cannon fodder, it doesn't make a race any less important. Every zombie or disaster movie ever has made humans cannon fodder... now there may be historical movies that see natives being killed but thats sadly a part of history, im glad natives got a positive movie but they are not always painted in a bad light. People look to be offended these days, we can do better than that

      You should watch more Yellowstone the tv series then. The Native Americans in that show are shown to not only be strong, protect their people/reservation, but they're honorable, smart, and deadly efficient. There's plenty of movies and tv shows which portray Native Americans in a positive light or at the very least as a capable and dangerous enemy (which is a compliment). Just do a little digging to find them.

    Best part of the movie was the part where the Predator is destroying the fur trappers. The sound effects, brutality, and the soundtrack all combine to make an awesome scene. Super cool that the actor of the Predator himself popped into the video.

    I was one of the mechanics who worked on the animatronic heads and I'm glad you got the number of servos correct. I know that is a weird thing to be happy about but it was a crazy amount of servos to get all the movement that was wanted. All of the mechanics were really happy with how much the mandibles were able to move and twitch. Trying to fit all those servos into the head was a challenge in itself and I have to give it up to Dane for putting in the time while he was quarantined in Canada before shooting started to train for being able to carry the weight of the head.

    • RobinHood3000
      RobinHood3000 5 months ago +21

      I don't think that's the intended takeaway, though. As we saw in Predator 2 and AVP, when other/elder Predators appear after a failed hunt, it's usually to reward the victor and claim the body. There's a span of almost 300 years in which the pistol can change hands, like on future hunts.
