Underrated Work-of-Art.
14 March 2004 | by (Chattanooga, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

CROCODILE is very underrated. If you saw this movie and did not like it, you

must have overlooked some details, let me explain:

CROCODILE is a story that demonstrates the following:

1. DETERMINATION: After Flat-Dog (the crocodile) wrecks the teen's boat, they do everything they can to escape the reptile's wrath. Even when the angered

crocodilian kills thier friends, RIGHT BEFORE THIER YOUNG EYES!

2. REVENGE: An old hunter named Shurkin, who lives on an alligator farm with

his weird son has an obsession with Flat-Dog. Many a year ago, the croc had

slaughtered Shurkin's grandfather when he just a boy, which made him mad

enough. After that Flat-Dog got his father, the only thing that truley mattered in Shurkin's life was gone. Ever since then, Shurkin had been living on his father's gator farm, knowing one day, the monstrous Flat-Dog would show her face

again. And when that time came, Shurkin would be ready to even the score!

3. TRAGIC LOSS OF LOVED ONES: The teens lose many of their friends when

Flat-Dog attacks and pursues them, Shurkin also lost his grandfather and father to the animal as well.

4. A MOTHER'S LOVE: Now, this is the movie's number 1 point that everyone

seems to be missing! After 2 idiotic fisherman destroy Flat-Dog's eggs, the

mother croc is enraged and begins to take her anger out on everone she runs

into! When one the foolish teens swipes the already enraged crocodile's final, unsmashed egg, and places it into that girl's backpack, she begins to follow the teens around. Flat-Dog destroys everthing in her path to get her last baby back, just like any mother would do! I still cry evertime the egg hatches into a Flat-Dog Jr. and swims off with big mama. And Flat-Dog is so happy, she spares the

remaining teens a most painful death!

Dear Tobe Hooper, You have made a lot of interesting movies, in particular, the classic TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, but I think CROCODILE is your best

work to date and is VERY underrated!
