Prey features a young female who weighs about as much as the family dog kicking the ass of a seven foot interstellar warrior, a fucking alien. Sorry, I have to get that Busey quote out there, whenever possible.
The movie is woke, like the concept was churned up in a Portland college dorm over 2-3 days. Most people have lamented this fact, as it is clear to see. Not so, however, says lead actress Amber Midthunder.
Here’s what Midthunder told PEOPLE in a recent interview:
“People are always going to say stuff, but that’s just noise. Honestly, those people have no idea what they’re talking about. First of all, I feel really proud of our movie and I think [director] Dan [Trachtenberg] is an incredible filmmaker. He has made something that people can eat their words over.”
Midthunder continued, no doubt scowling as she spoke:
“I think a lot of people thought our movie would be some super-woke, F-the-patriarchy kind of a story, and that’s not what it’s about at all. It’s not a girl defying what men say she can and can’t do. It’s literally an individual who feels called to something, and the people who know her don’t think that is her calling. That is so much more personal and, I think, as the character, harder to deal with than anything.”
Well there you have it. Hey, maybe we’re all wrong and it isn’t woke. Maybe woke doesn’t even exist. Hell propaganda doesn’t exist, at least not in the west. That’s a phenomena, to the best of our knowledge, that only happens in Siberia, directed by The Evil One.
