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 Mediamore

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.

[A] sharp if dramatically underwhelming French thriller ...

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

Loopy, dumb, and entertaining ...

Audience Reviews for La proie (The Prey)

Thank me.
No one seems to have seen La Proie yet and I am telling you that you should.
The terrain is familiar. Franck Adrien, a thief who has very few days left for his release still jumps a prison . Meanwhile his cellmate,Jean, who was arrested wrongly for child molestation is let go. There is an ex cop who still feels he shouldn't be. There is a hot policewoman in pursuit of a serial killer. She is pissed that she has been asked to chase Franck, a low life thief first before someone who is dumping bodies all around the place. All these people are either shooting at each other, chasing one another, climbing up trains, frequenting car crashes or dying on us in the 1 hour 30 minutes that La Proie keeps us tuned.
