YMMV / Deadly Prey

  • Cliché Storm: Oh so many in this movie. What common action movie trope from the eighties and ninties hasn't been used in this movie?
  • Complete Monster: Colonel Tom Hogan was a cruel military officer who believed in killing troops for failing missions. After being discharged, he decided to create his own army so he could hire himself and his army out to terrorists. Hogan trains his army by having them kidnap people and hunt them. After his army kidnaps ex-special force soldier Mike Danton, Hogan becomes obsessed with making him join. When Danton refuses, Hogan kidnaps Danton's wife Jamie and rapes her. Hogan proceeds to kill Jamie's father, and has his lieutenant Thornton kill her as well. In the sequel, Deadliest Prey, Hogan kidnaps Danton once again, and sends numerous men after him, fully expecting Danton to kill them. Hogan kidnaps Danton's new wife Allison, planning to kill her, and has his own men killed for incredibly petty things, such as panicking when Danton is killing most of the army, and coming back alive when Hogan expected them to die. He later murders three people who helped Danton, before trying to kill Danton and his wife.
  • Foe Yay: Quite a bit from Hogan. Danton is not amused.
  • Narm
    • Jaimy's actor's Valley Girl portrayal, which is used in inappropriate situations like after her rape.
    • Hogan saying Danton's name a lot, which makes it come off as Foe Yay.
  • So Bad, It's Good: It's nothing but mindless action. But that's some good mindless action there.
