A dazzling spectacle from top to bottom...

It can be written off as Enemy Mine on Tatooine, but it is also brainier and more fun than your average made-for-the-SyFy Channel movie . . .

Audience Reviews for Hunter Prey

If you can find this I highly recommend it as its a great low budget sci-fi flick in the same realms as 'Enemy Mine'. The plot is almost the same as 'Enemy Mine' accept the two races don't make friends and the alien race is introduced as the 'hero' element where as the human, in a neat little twist, is introduced as the 'creature' (you don't realise he's human at first) on the run and becomes the enemy...almost, depending how you look at it.

The thing that impresses about this film is the really nice makeup work on the alien masks and the costume, prop work which isn't that original looking (think 'Predator' armour mixed with a Clone Trooper from 'The Clone Wars') but it looks good set against the clear blue skies and yellow/orange rocky desert of the planet its all based on. The musical score is also pretty good, almost too good for a small film like this which was another surprise. Cast wise there are no big names but the acting is perfectly fine with some solid stunt work throughout.

You must be a total sci-fi fan to enjoy this on its numerous levels, its not a fast action packed flick and its not filled with cheap looking CGI, its actually very well made simply because the director has tried to focus the film with good characters and a good story without the help of lots of money and to craft his film with obvious love and attention to make it as real as possible and not to rely on CGI. Think a really good episode of 'Star Trek', only down side is the ending is left open which could lead to a poor sequel or we may never know what happens if they don't.

Sandy Collora deservedly graduates from his brilliant Batman short film Batman:Dead End to produce a wonderful piece of thoughtful sci-fi. With a low budget it's amazing what Collora has done. He prefers the practical effects, which leads to some wonderful make-up and costume designs.Without these the film wouldn't work as well as it does. As it progresses the influence of Twilight Zone/70's sci-fi is everywhere, and as the twists and turns are revealed, they add to the story. Collora doesn't assault us with chaotic editing to "add" action on a low budget. He uses the restraints of the make-up and costumes to add to a realistic environment. At the heart of the story are talks on morals and ethics. Obviously the title refers to a switch in the dynamic of what hunts what and why. It isn't overly complicated, but it's wonderfully thought out. Some of the best moments have the enemies engage in conversation. We are always hit with a sense of appreciation between the two, and it becomes obvious that they could become friends under different circumstances. It's great in an age of overproduction, to see something that embraces its limits and finds the heart, soul, and story from within.

Sedonian soldier chases prisoner across big desert. Made for a meagre half a million dollars, there's no big set pieces, just a lot of sand. And conversation, as the balance of power shifts between the two protagonists. A bit like Sleuth with Power Ranger costumes.
