Prey is ok, not great, not bad. Predators already did "return to roots" and wasn't met with anywhere near this kind of acclaim despite similar quality, similar problems and stronger cast. And I liked Predators concept more, especially its reversed character dynamics which was kind of smart change.
There were a couple of movies where I was really sceptical, but which turned out to be good and I admitted I was wrong. I highly doubt it's gonna happen here, I'm not gonna play "wait and see" game with the franchise that consistently delivered mixed bags at best for almost 4 decades, that's ridiculous, it's hard to find something more incompetent than this.
Also Cameron was extremely smart when he did Aliens, most directors would just copypaste first film, but he knew it's not gonna work if he wanted to reach that impossible level, so he changed the genre, built on the original variables and expanded the universe in the most compelling way possible. If Romulus is another "back to roots" where it's just copypaste of the original and doesn't add anything new/compelling to its lore, but this time with kids, I don't see how it's not gonna be another mixed bag at best, there's nothing going for it.
