Hunter Prey

The movie begins with the spaceship Prometheus dropping out of orbit onto a desert planet and the prison who was onboard escaping. The three surviving crew members begin pursuing him in order to capture him alive, as their commanding officer has ordered. As the movie progresses you begin to wonder who the hunter is and who the prey is, as the prisoner seems to be killing of the crew with ease.

The problem with this film is that the story rushes the start of the film so that we are left with long periods of time where it is Centauri 7 and Jericho just chasing each other through the arid landscape. I felt like the writer and director Sandy Collara wanted to make a grand statement about humanity but it doesnít work very well in a film like this.

Luckily however these scenes are made far more interesting by the cinematography. This film was shot on location in Mexico and the shots of the beautiful Mexican desert more than make up for the lack of compelling storyline. Some of the shots were worthy of nature documentary and if I didnít know any better I would think that cinematographer Edward Gutentag had worked on shooting natural scenery.

Nearly all of the cast in this film have a background in shooting, choreographing and performing stunts for major films such as Star Trek and Jarhead. This is incredibly obvious throughout the film but anyone that enjoys watching highly physical films will love this DVD.

 This is a DVD that will be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys science fiction as this film is set in the future with technology that, while looking quite basic, is supposed to be incredibly high tech. The only problem with this is that the costumes and make-up sometimes take over the action that is occurring. At the beginning of the film I really struggled to understand what they were saying to one another as their helmets muffled their voices. Not only that but it often seems like the costumes inhibit their ability to walk so some of the long distance shots look awkward as they struggle to operate normally.

The special features of the DVD only include a documentary on the making of the film. This is great for anyone who has enjoyed the film who anyone who has ideas of making their own low budget films in the future. The actors, director and producers all give their opinions on the various stages of the film, from writing to shooting to editing.

All together this is an enjoyable film, one that was obviously made on a shoestring budget but good all the same. Anyone who enjoys a futuristic costume drama will enjoy this film, even if itís only for the cinematography.
