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 ...
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.
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.
