I know some people might think I'm nuts for rating a movie like this so high but I'm rating it according to the type of film it is -- a Grade B creature-on-the-loose flick. Anyone watching a film called "Crocodile" knows up front that it isn't "Apocalypse Now." That said, "Crocodile" (2000) is simply a blast.
THE STORY: A bunch of college kids go out to a scenic vacation spot on Spring Break to have some fun in the sun and encounter a giant crocodile.
To be expected in such a scenario the youths "party" and cuss a lot, so stay away if either offends you.
"Crocodile" was directed by Tobe Hooper, the hallowed director of the acclaimed "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." I'm not a big fan of "Texas" (although I don't hate it either) and feel "Crocodile" is a more entertaining effort.
The film was shot on a scenic lake in Mexico, but the story takes place in the SW USA. Needless to say, fabulous locations.
WHAT DOESN'T WORK: There's a fake-looking CGI scene depicting the crocodile jumping over a boat that doesn't work at all, not to mention, it was highly unbelievable (of course, the WHOLE film is unbelievable, huh?). Other than that the F/X are fine for a Grade B flick; in fact, the crocodile looks great.
FINAL ANALYSIS: "Crocodile" is not great cinema but it's got loads of energy and is great mindless entertainment. As testimony to its entertainment value, I've watched it three times in the last few years -- it's just a fun, rewatchable creature-on-the-loose flick highlighted by some extremely cute girls, three that I can count.
For comparison, "Crocodile" is overall way more entertaining than 1999's "Lake Placid."
The film runs 93 minutes.
