Prey reminds us that Predators never talked about firepower

In “Prey”, Naru is shown failing again and again. While hunting a mountain lion, she was knocked down and had to be returned to the settlement. While trying to hunt a bear, she is forced to escape by hiding in a beaver dam and only survives because the Predator comes along and kills the bear. She is disarmed and tamed by her brother’s friends as they attempt to bring her back to the camp, and soon she is kidnapped by French trappers. Most of the battles that Naru participates in end in her running away. But then, running was also the approach that helped Dutch survive the Predator.

In an early scene of “Prey,” the Predator observes a wolf hunting a rabbit, evaluates the roles of the two animals, and chooses to fight the wolf while letting the rabbit run free. The moment is repeated later in the film when Naru and Itsee (Harlan Kytwayhat) are running away from the Predator. Itsee was killed, but when Naru was trapped and left helpless, the Predator watched her momentarily and then let her live. From this, Naru deduces something important about her opponent: it has identified her as a predatory creature, and therefore doesn’t care.

While large guns and bulging muscles were a major part of the marketing for “Predator”, Dutch also found that the best way to get rid of the Predator was to unarmed and appear innocuous, as the opponent Without weapons there would be no sport. When Anna (Elpidia Carrillo) tries to get a gun to fight the creature, Dutch quickly disarms her to save her life.

The Predator itself is first and foremost a hunter, and it can only be defeated by thinking like a hunter.
