Goofs

It was mentioned that Lucas' cabin is in Wisconsin. However, when he is driving to the cabin, the narration has him traveling I-35. That is a north-south part of the interstate system that does not cross into Wisconsin at any point so he would have to take I-35 to another local highway to cross into Wisconsin. See more »

Terrific, great,
18 August 2012 | by daphpavlicekSee all my reviews

Certain Prey, first TV adaptation of a novel by John Sandford. Tenth book in the Prey series.

This is the first show that has me picking up a book, a book in series, an excellent series at that. A few people expect that a movie or TV adaptation of a book should be to the word, I don't see this even possible unless you make it into a series with-in itself. I loved this story the characters and the lead character Lucas Davenport in my opinion was wonderfully portrayed, by Mark Harmon.I have become a Prey series fan because of this movie and am looking forward to the next installment. Davenport is suspiciously close to Gibbs in a lot of ways, Mark Harmon, a Sandford fan no doubt, they are connected, IMO. I loved it. A terrific movie full of Suspense and thoroughly engaging.
