Editorial Reviews

Tom Newman (Peter Weller) can’t join his family on their first African Adventure vacation due to urgent business obligations, but hopes the trip will provide a chance for his son and daughter to bond with his new young wife, Amy (Bridget Moynahan). Their ranger, Brian, decides to add some extra thrills and adventure to their trip and takes them "off roading." All is well until Amy and the 2 kids become lost in a labyrinthine game reserve and begin to be stalked by savage lions who won’t quit until they have dinner. The film is described as "Jaws in the African bush" and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final seconds.

Format:DVD
I found this little low-budget film to be very disturbing and intense. Make no mistake that is a survival film and you've seen this kind of thing before; however, that doesn't make this nifty little film any less powerful and at a brisk 90 minutes, you'll feel exhausted when this film ends.

The acting is generally good. Moynaham of I, Robot fame, as the stepmom saddled with 2 bratty kids is very believable and will often remind you in looks and speech of Sandra Bullock. The oldest child is very effective in her role, but her character will, forgive the pun, eat away at your nerves to the point where you want Moynaham to simply kick the broken down jeep's door open and feed her to the damn lions. The youngest child is so awful in his role that you would swear on a stack of Bibles that he's reading his lines off of posterboards. Peter Weller, the Robocop Trilogy and recent villain on TV's 24 - Season Five, as the dad is reliable as always and he's always been a very underrated actor. I enjoy seeing him on the History Channel where he hosts ancient worlds specials (wherein he holds a Master's degree from Syracuse University and, I believe, is an adjunct professor).

The death scenes are absolutely chilling and intense and not unlike the death scenes in Jaws. They are that riveting and horrific. I promise you that you will not forget them. There are enough "rest" scenes in the film between the lion attacks and they are used well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prey March 29, 2010
Format:DVD
While working in a dam in Africa, the American hydraulic engineer Tom Newman brings his family to spend a couple of days in the Leopard's Rest Lodge. His fourteen year-old daughter Jessica is having friction with her stepmother Amy since she does not accept the divorce of her parents. On the next morning, Amy, Jessica and her brother David go in a game drive with a ranger while Tom goes to the dam. While driving off-road, they stop for a minute for David, and unexpectedly they are attacked by a group of starving lions that kill and eat the ranger. Amy, Jessica and David are trapped in the jeep and stalked by the wild lions. When Tom returns to the hotel and finds that his family has not returned from the game, he asks for help to the experienced hunter and guide Crawford and together they seek Tom's family. For a low budget movie, I found this movie quite entertaining. This movie doesn't take long to pick up, within 15 minutes of the movie, you will be curious to watch the survival plot of humans against beast. It's quick, fun and interesting. It's worth a rental.

3.0 out of 5 stars Never Go Off-Road When You're Already Off-Road! September 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Tom Newman (Peter Weller) brings his two children and his new, younger wife, Amy (Bridget Moynahan) to Africa to spend some time with them while he's working on an African dam project. His daughter, Jessica (Carly Schroeder), is upset about her parents' divorce, and wants nothing to do with Amy. Hoping to form a bond between them, Newman suggests that his daughter and new wife, along with his son, David (Connor Dowds), take a ride through a game reserve on their way to the lodge where they will spend the rest of their vacation while he finishes up on some work.

While touring the reserve, young David needs to use the bathroom. The guide and David leave the safety of the SUV they are riding in so that David can do a little "paper work" in the bush. With the tour guide protecting him with a rifle, David commences to relieve himself. Unfortunately for the group, though, David's moving problem has them stopped in the middle of a group of starving lions. The lions make an attempt on catching David, but the guide manages to hold them off long enough for the young boy to make it back to the truck. The guide isn't so lucky and is violently killed by the beasts. This leaves Amy, Jessica, and David alone to swelter in the African heat and do their best in order to survive until someone can find them.

Meanwhile, Tom has made it to the lodge and immediately tries to start a search and rescue mission. Unfortunately the rangers at the lodge can't assist him until daylight. He's put into contact with a local hunter/tracker named Crawford (Jamie Bartlett) who refuses to help Tom at first, but eventually gives in when a payment is offered for his services.

3.0 out of 5 stars Here kitty, kitty, kitty January 28, 2011
Format:DVD
Hoping to form a bond between his two young children and his new bride, engineer Tom Newman (Peter Weller) takes his kids - teenage daughter Jessica (Carly Schroeder) and young son David (Connor Dowds) - and his new bride Amy (Bridget Moynahan) on an African safari. While off-roading with the tour guide in a zebra-painted safari truck, the bumpy terrain dislodges some of the warthog from the previous night's meal causing David's IBS to flair up. The tour guide decides it's a good decision to let 65lb David drop a deuce in the bush nearly 50 yards from the truck in the middle of lion country. Yeah, because lions don't single out the weak for their prey. Either it's the tour guide's first day or he's retarded, but things don't go as he plans. What follows is nothing more than Cujo on steroids, as Jessica and the kids struggle to survive, with predictable and boring step-mamma-drama, while Tom employs the help of a local hunter, Crawford (Jamie Bartlett).

First and foremost, if you're looking for a man vs. lion movie, it's called The Ghost and the Darkness. That is not up for debate.

Since this probably falls in the horror genre, I suppose we should get the following out of the way: cell phones don't work, moronic choices abound, no nudity, and Jessica can't drive...but that's mainly because women can't drive. I digress. Suffice to say, the movie loses incredible steam because the tension between step-mother and daughter is tedious, the little boy nearly gets heat stroke after one wittle day in the hot sun, and the only interesting characters get little screen time (except when Crawford is massaging and smelling a clump of lion scat in his left hand for an obscene amount of time).

It's not a bad film, but there aren't a lot of aspects that standout.

3.0 out of 5 stars Panicky protagonists
Prey has been compared unfavorably with Ghost And The Darkness, based on the panicky behaviour of the
protagonists in the former. This is not entirely fair. Read more
