The Croc is Big in Japan! No ... Thailand!
1 July 2009 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Even though "Crocodile" is over a quarter of a century old, the film opens with footage that is frighteningly reminiscent to drama we witnessed on television during that devastating Tsunami a couple of years ago on Christmas. Although here the hurricane is supposedly nature's subtle way of saying 'Stop destroying the earth!", and the gigantic waves subsequently bring along an unwelcome visitor with big teeth and a monstrous appetite. The crocodile wondrously adapts to the open sea quite quickly and goes on a relentless killing spree. When his wife and daughter get eaten during a day at the beach, surgeon Anthony Akam quits his job at the hospital and vows to destroy the primitive reptile. It's really cute and charming how this Thai/South-Korean production desperately wants to imitate the American produced creature-features of that period. Girls in minuscule bathing suits parading around the beach and dancing to horrible disco music, cheap English dubbing and typical slang in the dialog… I swear, if all the cast-members weren't Asian, I would think the film was set in Miami Beach! "Crocodile" certainly isn't a bad time-waster if you have, like me, a soft spot for all the cheap and nasty rip-offs that were released to cash in on the massive success of Spielberg's summer blockbuster "Jaws". The effects are pretty lousy, but the fake croc looks reasonably menacing as long as it doesn't start chewing. The scene where the killer crocodile is responsible for the destruction of an entire seaside village and its population is a true blast! That's exactly what I like about this these rip-offs, by the way… They always exaggerate to the nth degree and add randomly irrelevant stuff, like for example the explanation that the croc is a mutation generated through endless nuclear experiments at the sea bottom. Where the hell does that suddenly comes from? There are some really strong moments in "Crocodile" (the two attacks against children) but also several boring and pointlessly overlong stuff (for example, the entire chase at sea in good old Jaws tradition is dull and could have been cut). This puppy is rare and practically impossible to find, so my advice would be to only search fanatically if you're a crocodile-horror freak. On the other hand, the sight of a fully grown buffalo dying between the cheeks of a croc-monster totally justified the price of the purchase for me.
