If you're eaten by a giant croc, wear bug spray
12 November 2002 | by (WA) – See all my reviews

This movie is laughably awful. The crocodile defies gravity with amazing hang-time (it leaps about 30 vertical ft. over a police boat), plows down buildings, blows up trucks, eats people like gummy bears, and chomps a dock to oblivion. Leave alone the fact that crocodiles are generally saltwater creatures. Enter two grizzled, enigmatic yocals who know all about the killer croc (Why? no one really knows), but can't help hand-feeding the thing dead chickens. The action scenes consist of jiggley cameras and ketchup squirting from squeeze bottles.

The characters show no remorse for fallen friends and even cheer when a truck containing one of their peers is blown to kingdom come. Surprisingly, the acting isn't the worst thing about it; the screenplay is worse. You know from the beginning who will be alive at the end and who will be croc feed. Each character is easily compartmentalized so as not to strain the short attention spans of the teens and twenty-somethings this movie is targeted for.

Even Anaconda had redeeming moments compared to this garbage.

Rating: 1 / 10
