Warning: Full spoilers follow for Prey. Do you want to know if there is an end credits scene? We will tell you here. There like is. Read all these details.
If it’s bleeding, we can kill it. Hulu’s Prey takes on The Predator. way back in time, pitting one of the galaxy’s greatest hunters against Comanche warriors in the 1700s. A new period, the same deadly predator chasing the toughest game it can find. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, the film “Prey” tells the story of the first predator hunt on Earth. We’re here to spoil the ending and dive into the Easter Eggs we spotted in this epic adventure!
Prey ending explained
It’s 1719 in the northern Great Plains, and a Predator is dropped here on Earth to find and hunt the planet’s apex predator – you know, pretty standard Predator-style stuff.
In fact, Prey’s core story is also pretty standard Predator-esque stuff, in a good way, with a fierce warrior using his wits and his environment to hunt down and kill a deadly alien warrior whose sole purpose is to be there. to hunt and kill. As we have already mentioned comprehensively Prey review, the movie brings Predator back to its roots. All about hunting.
Our main character is Naru (played by Amber Midthunder), a Koman warrior and hunter whose family seems to think she should leave the hunting to the boys. As our heroine, she begins to realize that there is someone in the forest who may be hunting her tribe. She’s also the one who ends up figuring out how to do it to beat Predator, which refers to a variety of orange blossoms that, when consumed, can drop a person’s body temperature enough to prevent a predator’s heat vision from detecting it.
Every science fiction film ever nominated for Best Picture
The final battle begins when Naru and her brother Taabe (Dakota Beavers) take on the predator. Taabe keeps to himself for a while, but you know these Predator fights are all fun and games until someone gets nailed. This is exactly what happens.
After briefly escaping, Naru prepares for a final showdown, eating a bouquet of flowers while also using the trap as bait to lure the predator. This allows Naru to use a special gun (more on this gun below) to install a moon roof on the back of the alien’s head. She then steals the Predator’s helmet, which is different from the helmets we’ve seen Predators wear before, but helps her target his ranged projectiles.
As the alien chases her down (the moon roof wasn’t enough), Naru attacks from above, further injuring him. She eventually drives him into a swamp, which slows him down long enough for Naru to deliver the killing blow by using the bone rudder to direct the alien target’s projectile bolts to revolve in his own forehead.
So, as in other installments of the Predator franchise, the victorious hunter must figure out how the alien technology works and how to find ways to defeat them. That precedent was set back in Predator 1, and Naru’s plan echoes what the Dutch do in that movie that’s on. this the future of film. Got it?
It’s all about those orange flowers though. So obviously they let Naru do the same thing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dutchman does in Predator 1 where he covers himself in dirt to lower his body temperature and avoid that Predator scanners and scope.
After finally defeating the Predator, Naru cuts off its head and takes it back to her village. She is celebrated as a warrior and she warns her people of the dangers posed by the alien and trapper she has encountered.
Loot’s end credits scene
An animated preview of the film’s events is revealed during the first batch of end credits. It’s really cool, but the last thing we see is a shot of the Predator ships coming out of a group of clouds…right above the Comanche camp. Does this mean that Naru and her people are doomed after all? Or maybe there just might be a sequel starring these characters? Time will tell!
Sell Easter eggs
There were two big references to the previous Predator movies that we picked up for Prey.
The first is a reference to one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous lines from the first film, when Taabe says the same line: “If he’s bleeding, we can kill him.”
And of course the other big one is the reference to Predator 2. It’s this pistol that Naru throws at the elders…after he also throws the Predator’s head. This is the same pistol with the same inscription that Danny Glover receives as a prize for killing his Predator 300 years later. Now that means that at some point the Predators have to come back to Earth to get that weapon, so… Fun Easter Egg? You bet. Bad news for Nar and her tribes? Big time.
