Action fans will be delighted this weekend with two really cool movies with the return of the Predator with Prey and a new visual madness from South Korea with Carter!
Check out our mini-reviews and have a great weekend!
You can still have a longer list of the releases under the “This Friday” section on the homepage.
If you are looking for a movie full of crazy and non-stop action, then Carter is for you! This South Korean film offers us a rarely seen experience (except Hardcore Henry) by truly immersing us into the action. The camera moves constantly and follows the amnesiac hero in his exploits. The story is very simple, even anecdotal, a hero must complete an impossible mission to save his family and recover his memory. It is especially a perfect pretext for an almost uninterrupted sequence of crazy action scenes one after the other. At times the film is close to the “beat them all” video games with its endless waves of enemies and the boss to face in a final battle. The movie start quite modestly in an apartment but it will quickly become crazy with more and more enemies and especially the whole range of vehicles is used from motorcycles, to trucks and finally helicopters. The technical prowess is really impressive and we leave the movie as exhausted as its hero! Don’t miss this new visual madness from South Korea!
Thrown into a mysterious operation, “Carter” must reclaim his identity and successfully complete his mission on time in this one-scene, one-cut action film.
After many more or less successful sequels, what a pleasure to have a new Predator movie that goes back to the roots of the first cult movie! This new movie proposes us to follow the adventures of a young Native American girl who wants to become a hunter in her tribe. The story takes its time to show us the Amerindian culture as well as the dangers of hunting a puma or a bear, the hunters equipped with rudimentary weapons will of course have very few chances of survival against a Predator but they will still be tough with lots of courage. The film plays with the differences in technology between the Native Americans, the Canadian hunters and of course the Predator. The action scenes are very interesting and relatively violent without falling into excessive gore just as the hunting sequences are very intense because we really feel the vulnerability of our young huntress. The film also offers stunning landscapes and really cool visual ideas such as the oners showing the food chain between animals or during an intense fight in a camp. Prey is really a very good action movie and above all a very successful sequel to Predator! Get ready for a new intense hunt !
The origin story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. Naru, a skilled female warrior, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth.
