Franck Khalfoun’s Prey is a fascinating movie, though not always in the way you’d like in the sense that it takes multiple storylines and brings them together in a way that doesn’t quite mesh.
The main storyline revolves around Toby (Logan Miller) who, seemingly in an effort to recover from the death of his father, is sent on a three day survivalist jag to Malaysia.
Though what surviving in a jungle for three days has to do with helping him forgive himself for a death he had little if anything to do with in the first place–beyond offering a placebo of sorts–is a bit beyond my understanding.
In any case, upon arrival on the island events begin to move toward an inevitable, though not terribly satisfying, conclusion.
Prey is not by any means a bad or unwatchable, though it’s not nearly as good as it could, or should, have been.
