“This is just noise,” the “Prey” star responded to the negative criticism
victim The movie (2022) was a huge hit, breaking records at Hulu and Disney+, while also receiving glowing reviews from audiences and critics. Some even go so far as to say it’s the best supplement in the world predator The series since the 1987 original with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

But, whether you like the movie or not, victim It turns out to be nothing more than an anti-patriarchal project with a clumsy feminist agenda, as main character Naru (Amber Midthunder) is determined to become a poacher within her tribe simply because she feels this is her goal.
Now, in an interview with PeopleActress Amber Midthunder has responded to some of those criticisms. This is what she had to say:
“People will always say things, but it’s just noise. Honestly, these 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] He is an incredible film maker. He made something people could eat their words.”

Midthunder continued, explaining that her character Naru is nothing but a character with an “awakened agenda”, saying that she is “not a girl who defies what men say she can and can’t do” and that she is simply “an individual who feels called to something”:
“I think a lot of people thought our movie was going to be a super wake-up, F-the-patriarchy kind of story type, and that’s not what it’s about at all. She’s not a girl who defies what guys say she can and can’t do. It’s literally An individual who feels called to something and people who know her don’t think that is her calling. This is much more personal, and I I think, as a character, it’s harder to deal with than anything.”

She also went on to address the history of the Comanche, with many fans criticizing the fact that a woman like Naru is able to take on a predator in the first place (although the Predator is much less advanced than those in the original 1987 film onwards):
“People don’t know much about aboriginal history. Period. So they don’t know what kind of warrior we were. There are people who don’t even know that there are different tribes or languages. This is really coming from a place of ignorance. Then you look at it and say, ‘Oh no,’ Hey man. The Comanche was a truly great warrior. They were known to be some of the fiercest warriors ever. And they had a female warrior community, so there were women who fought and hunted. Well, I guess you’re just looking at that and you [tell yourself], “Well, whatever it is, people will always say things.” I’m proud of what we’ve done.”
