“Throw the classic human-hunting premise of The Most Dangerous Game, the lush jungle setting of Predator, some wealthy thrill seekers looking for the ultimate rush a la Jean-Claude Van Damme’s ultra-mullety Hard Target (remember that one?) and a dash of any high-octane Southeast Asian actioner since The Raid into a blender and you’ll come out with The Prey, a lean, mean bit of pulp entertainment that will most definitely satisfy fans of the genre. Set in Cambodia and ticking off almost all the required action-thriller boxes — and a few that could stand to be retired — Jailbreak writer-director Jimmy Henderson’s sweaty, fleet, fevered exercise in genre filmmaking is a pleasure with enough of a jolt to keep viewers engaged.” – Elizabeth Kerr / The Hollywood Reporter
