'Hunter Prey'
(Issac C. Singleton Jr., Clark Bartram, Damion Poitier, Simon Potter, Erin Gray, et al / DVD / NR / (2009) 2010 / Maya Ent.)

Overview: The Prometheus has dropped out of orbit. Communications and life support systems are down. Situation Critical. Status of Crew and Prisoner unknown. With orders to catch their Alien Prisoner alive, the surviving crew of the spaceship Prometheus pursues a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with their escaped prisoner on a deserted and barren planet. But, who is the hunter and who is the prey?

DVD Verdict: The first thing about this film that stood out to me was the breathtaking scenery and the high end score. How can anyone pull off a film with two characters running around a desolate planet and not put me to sleep!? Director Sandy Collora - perhaps best known as the man who directed the cult short film Batman: Dead Endpulls - it off!

I loved this refreshing, visually stunning, old style, character-based sci-fi. I was captivated by the cinematography, and completely engrossed by the characters. It's a must see for any sci-fi lovers, and a masterpiece in low budget film making. A remarkable film on all accounts.

In fact, there are very few CG effects, and almost everything is done the classic way: live action, guys in suits, and miniatures for the ships. In the age of mind numbing effects and CG run amok, it was nice to see real people doing real things.

In closing, and again, there are some great visuals, good dialog, and some neat twists you do not see coming. I gotta say, I love this movie and cannot wait to see what Sandy Collora pulls out of his hat next!? This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
