Predator Star Jesse Ventura Reviews Prey Movie

Jesse Ventura, who starred as Clain Cooper in the original 1987 Predator, takes to Twitter to praise the prequel Prey, which is now on Hulu.

Original predator star Jesse Ventura gushes about the new film Prey. The popular film franchise originated in 1987 with predator, directed by John McTiernan and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film followed a military rescue mission in the jungle that flies off the rails when it is discovered that a technologically advanced alien Predator is hunting down the team one by one. In the film, Ventura plays Blain Cooper, a merciless gunman who named his weapon Ol’ Painless. The cast of the iconic film also includes Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke, Richard Chaves, RG Armstrong, Kevin Peter Hall, and future iron Man 3 director Shane Black.


There have been quite a few films in the predator franchise since then, including sequels set in Los Angeles, suburbia, and the Predator home planet, as well as two crossovers with the Alien films, but the latest entry is Preywhich premiered on Hulu on August 5. The project was helmed by 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg from a screenplay by Patrick Aison, and is set in the Comanche Nation in 1719. Although the cast also includes Dakota Beavers, Michelle Thrush, Stormee Kipp, Julian Black Antelope, and Dane DiLiegro, the film is largely a one-on -one battle between a dangerous Predator and the young Comanche warrior Naru (Amber Midthunder).

last-night, Fortune took to Twitter to share his review of Prey. He said it was “thoughtful, creative, and wonderful,” praising Midthunder and quoting the original film by saying she “ain’t got time to bleed.” This prompted a loving response from both Midthunder and Trachtenberg, who were bowled over by his praise. The former said “I just… I don’t know how to… thank you“while the latter said”I’m on the floor.” Check out Ventura’s review, as well as Midthunder and Trachtenberg’s reactions, below:

It’s not often that the seventh overall film in a franchise gets praise from anybody, let alone a member of the original cast. Ventura’s praise is proof that the film has been landing across the board. This can also be seen in Prey‘s score on Rotten Tomatoes, where the film is now officially Certified Fresh with a critic score of 93% and an audience score of 82%. The reception from critics and fans has been largely positive, with many citing Prey as a return to form for the franchise.

The incredible success of Prey will likely spell good news for the future of the franchise. Should they move forward with Prey 2, this will mark the first time that there has been genuine continuity between any of the films in the main branch of the series. Still, this all depends on how the film fares on Hulu and what Disney, who now owns the rights to the franchise, would like to move forward. Considering the glowing reception (and ideas about a sequel already being discussed) all signs are looking good for a continuation. All things considered, Prey‘s reception is not bad at all for a decades-later sequel to a minted sci-fi classic.
