This I first watched the trailer a while back I simply couldn't WAIT to watch it! When I seen it was on Hulu I grabbed the hubby and we watched it the moment we could. 

Naru is a skilled hunter, survivor, and warrior. She a Comanche woman who has to prove herself. When the Predator lands on Earth she will have to use every trick she knows to save herself and her people. 

This movie kicked ass. I loved every second of it. Naru was awesome. She wasn't perfect but she was a quicker learner. I also loved her pup! That pup deserves all the snacks and all the awards you can give to a dog. 

Now...I will say you HAVE to watch this in the Comanche Dub. I will never watch the English version. The Comanche Dub made it feel so real and it just added another layer. 

As a note - we come across some French fur-trappers who are jerks. They only speak French except for one who knows some Comanche. Which I thought was great. You are following in Naru's steps and only know what she knows. She doesn't know French so it was a treat. I was able to translate some of the French for the hubby and me. But I have a 2nd-grade reading level soooooo ya. There was some stuff I didn't know but I didn't care. You can infer based on what was going on and their actions. 

The fights scenes were fun! 

The ending was good. It wasn't exactly how what I was expecting, but it was good. Won't spoil the ending for ya ;) 

There is a small hint that we may get a sequel one day. Which I would love!! 

But yes, def a good movie. By far my favorite Predator movie! Naru was awesome. The puppy was great. The fight scenes fun. I recommend this for sure. 5 stars.

SO I've only seen the original movie (which I loved) and I think the sequel. Are they all set in the world? Is this a prequel or?

Carole Rae said...

B, it is a good one.

Jen, I think this is a prequel of sorts.
