Just roll with it.
9 February 2010 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

A failed hijack attempt by a group of armed criminals goes horribly wrong, causing the plane to crash into a crocodile infested South American swamp. A small handful of crew and passengers crawl from the wreckage, but are horrified to discover that several of the hijackers have also survived the disaster. Forced at gunpoint to carry the bad guys' luggage (which is stuffed full of stolen cash), the group trudge through the murky waters, all the while stalked by a huge hungry reptile. Meanwhile, Zach (Chuck Walczak), boyfriend of pretty stewardess survivor Mia (Heidi Lenhart), hires local tracker Roland (Martin Kove) to help him find his woman.

After the massive disappointment that was Tobe Hooper's Crocodile, I really wasn't expecting much (if anything) from a sequel, especially after reading some of the disparaging comments here on IMDb; but knock me down with a rubber reptile and call me Steve Irwin if Death Roll didn't prove to be the most fun I've had with a low-budget B-movie creature feature in a long while.

Despite nearly all of the accusations fired at this film by its naysayers being absolutely true (the story IS highly derivative, the characters ARE extremely clichéd, and the killer croc itself IS a marvel of VERY manky CGI and pathetic model-making), I just couldn't help but have a total blast.

What makes Crocodile 2 so surprisingly watchable is that even though director Gary Jones knows damn well that he's working on another predictable, cheesy and formulaic film destined for the bottom shelf at Blockbusters, he still gives it everything he has (Hooper's film, on the other hand, felt like the director was just going through the motions).

Jones's enthusiastic and unpretentious approach is mirrored by his cast, who play their preposterous one-dimensional roles to the hilt, and the result is a silly, funny (perhaps unintentionally, perhaps knowingly), scary, and ultimately hugely enjoyable monster movie that offers impeccably timed jump scares, several gory deaths, a cartoonish and impossibly evil head villain (whose vocabulary is littered with unimaginative expletives), a David Hess-alike creepy henchman, a truly awful exploding helicopter model, a denouement that was telegraphed from the very beginning, and the obligatory daft pre-credits 'shock' sequence that finally allows us blokes a better look at the very sexy Lenhart (dont get too excited, though: she's only in a bikini!).

It might seem like a ridiculously high rating for such a corny film, but I give Crocodile 2: Death Roll a whopping 8/10.
