Movie Info

Franck Adrien (Albert Dupontel), a bank robber convicted of a heist and sentenced to six months in prison, shares a cell with seemingly weak Jean Louis Morel. But once Morel gets released from behind bars, Adrien learns that Morel is really a sadistic serial killer who now knows private details about Adrien's life. Adrien must break out of prison and catch Morel before he gets to Adrien's family...and before France's elite police detectives hunt Adrien down. (c) Cohen Media

Deftly strips away the phoniness of a big-budget studio production.

It's watchable but absolutely no big deal, although you wouldn't know that from the drum-heavy score, so loud and militaristic that someone could reuse it for a documentary about the Battle of the Bulge.

Like a bullet train, the French thriller "The Prey" is a model of breathless efficiency, its stuffed cargo of chases, brawls and twists delivered with admirable speed.

It's no insult to say that it doesn't aspire to art-house significance, just to white-knuckled entertainment.

Eric Valette tries to keep it grounded in action scenes built on a physicality that is more authentic than the overkill of CGI spectacle.

"The Prey" is an above-average French-language thriller full of suspense and interesting characters.

Why can't we make beaucoup genre films as frequently as the French?

As cynical as you want it to be, 'The Prey' is an often violent, strong character-driven, somewhat thrilling story where nobody is to be trusted nor aided without suffering the consequences.

June 6, 2013 Full Review Source: UR Chicago Magazine

A tightly constructed little suspense machine, as neatly plotted as an advanced calculus problem...builds to a literal cliff-hanger.

A trim and exciting beach-read of a movie.

All that running keeps tension high in this police thriller based on events in the life of a serial rapist-killer.

Sweeping landscape shots and the reliable presence of Sergi López, here playing a scarred private investigator, can't distract from the clichés of a particularly dim-witted script.

There's perhaps a little too much running and chasing but the pace doesn't let up, the end is an authentic cliffhanger, and Alice Taglioni gives an attractive performance as a plainclothes cop.

A rough diamond con on the trail of a serial killer can't outrun this French thriller's weight of familiarity.

Fast and furious, but also dull and derivative.
