Maybe I don't get this movie. Is it supposed to be as bad as it seems? When I watched Cabin Fever (and let's face it, Crocodile is similar with a different enemy) I thought I'd misunderstood it because there was a chance that the sheer awfulness was deliberate.
It's the usual (and annoyingly repetitive) Teenager Elimination flick (along with Cabin Fever, Wrong Turn, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jeepers Creepers, etc, etc) and, predictably, the characters are so obnoxious and shallow that you don't care who dies next. The afore- mentioned movies have a few things in common. Firstly you need a few teenagers to hate. Secondly, the enemy (which could be anything) needs to start wiping out the teenagers. Also required are some locals who know the history behind the enemy. Sound familiar? I can't understand why movie makers still write this kind of trash.
The CGI was awful. Another comment left here explained that this movie was supposed to be rubbish and the CGI was supposed to be unrealistic. What?! Why would a movie company want to spend its money on a film with unconvincing special effects on purpose? Ludicrous. This was released in 2000 and there's no excuse for bad effects these days.
The acting was substandard too. The writers have injected a love story into the mix which, quite frankly, didn't help things along. There was a little insight to the characters but after establishing that, you still didn't care who was going to die and when.
Won't be watching this one again in a hurry - if I'd read the review in the TV guide, I wouldn't have bothered at all. It's just the same old formula with a different enemy. Doesn't matter whether it's a contagious disease, piranhas, man with chainsaw, demon, alien or crocodile - stick a selection of unconvincing teenagers into the situation and you've got movie-making at its worst.
