PREY

I have always liked watching these animal gone crazy type films, I don't know what it is about them maybe it's because this stuff really does happen or something, I don't know. But these films have always fascinated me, and even if the film isn't all that great I still give it a chance. This film looks like a great film if you go by cover alone, plus it states that it is inspired by true events which boost interest. Those two things alone have my attention, but it all so hypes the film up. When watched with an open mind it still leaves you with mixed feelings.

Director Darrell Roodt who also co wrote this film with Jeff Wadlow, and Beau Bauman creates a cool little tension filled [at times] movie that is an over all enjoyable film. The story is all about a family and a guide who are attacked by a pack of lions and are stuck off road in a jeep. Of course from here we have a film full of pretty realistic kills and some pretty good thrills. The writers, director, and producers of this film obviously went into this trying to make a really good movie, and on some levels they have truly succeeded. The only real faults within this movie are some of the characters.

Carly Schroeder plays her role very well but it is her character that truly hurts this movie. She plays Jessica Newman who is the most annoying character I think I have ever seen in a film ever. You may be reading that and think that I am exaggerating, but I promise you I am not. You really will be wishing for this teenage girl to literally be thrown to the lions, as bad as that sounds it would have elevated this film to classic status in my mind. Conner Dowds's character is quite the opposite, but the problem here is in the performance. I realize he is just a kid, so to that extent it isn't horrible but other kids have done much better. Bridget Moynahan on the other hand as the step mother of the kids is great in her role, I particularly like when she finally gets on to Carly's character. She plays the role brilliantly and like others have said she does look a little like Sandra Bullock. Peter Weller is just as good as the father who can not be there to help his family. In fact everyone else in the film is very believable [see Jamie] and do a great job with this film.

This film would be perfect for a day you have just laying around the house. I recommend this film to anybody looking for a movie for just a day like that. Good film over all, check it out.
