Three brothers - Marshall, Marty and Mark dream of becoming naturalists and portraying animal life of America. One summer their dream comes true, they travel through America, filming alligators, bears and moose. Written by
As the three brothers are heading up into the Willis Peak, they drive by three lone men you can see, who a little later likely become the thugs who rob them blind. These three men you see a shot of when the brothers go by are actually the real life Stouffer brothers. See more »

Right before the credits roll: On April 6, 1977 "The Predators" aired on NBC narrated by Robert Redford. Marty went on to produce the acclaimed series "Wild America". Mark became an Emmy award winner and one of the foremost wildlife filmmakers in the world. Marshall recently complete a documentary about endangered snails. He is now looking for bigger game. (Then a postcard of "Mom and Dad" saying "Greetings from Hawaii) And Agnes spent two glorious weeks on the beaches of Hawaii while Marty Sr. combed the island for car parts. See more »
Despite the three young actors being "teen idols," they pulled off really good chemistry throughout the film. My primary faults with the film are not with the acting at all, but with the screenplay. Because of the writer's desire to put everything possible into one movie, he sabotaged its overall effectiveness. Is this a classic teen idol flick? Is it a nature film? Is it comedy/drama/action? It's really hard to say, as it doesn't succeed as any of the above! There are too many side-plots -- does the owl really need to be there? Or Leon? Or the man in the mountain? There are too many relationships given just a hint of substance, such as that with Mom, the town bully, the local girls, the college girls... In addition, Mark's character has little opportunity to develop, and the other boys leave a great deal to the imagination. And I ask you, is it necessary for Marshall to have three different nicknames? This is, unfortunately, one more movie that could have been really great. As it is, it is a fun film without enough substance.
On a side note, is there any particular reason that only one of the Stouffer brothers was involved in producing the show? I find that a little odd, myself.
