Aussie adventurer Steve Irwin aka The Crocodile Hunter has avoided the death-roll and nabbed another feisty croc, hoping to save it from poachers. What Steve doesn't know is that the crocodile has innocently swallowed a top secret US satellite beacon, and the poachers are actually American special agents sent to retrieve it. Crikey! In the Outback and through the bush with his wife Terri's ever-present commentary ringing out over the countryside ("That was a close one, Steve!"), the Crocodile Hunter is out to save the gorgeous croc and relocate him. It won't be easy, but if he can handle bird-eating spiders and venomous snakes without getting bitten, gun-wielding agents shouldn't be too much of a problem. Written by

One of the characters at the CIA remarks that they lost the signal from the satellite over Queensland, Australia. However, in a subsequent view of the satellite, it is seen hovering over the Southern Ocean, apparently headed north towards Australia. This would mean that the signal was lost while the satellite was nowhere near Queensland. See more »
Closing disclaimer: Although Steve Irwin and Terri Irwin are real people dedicated to the ethical treatment of animals and the preservation of all wildlife, the story told in this Motion Picture is nevertheless a work of fiction. Other characters, and the entities depicted in this Motion Picture, are fictitious. Aside from Steve and Terri, any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or to actual entities, is purely coincidental. See more »
With much apprehension, I decided to watch this movie. To say the least, one could see how low budget the film was, but it's not something that detracts from the movie. Overall, it felt like some National Geographic documentary spliced with an actual movie. While the different aspect ratios of the digital film and the celluloid was a little annoying, it didn't take too much away from the film. Steve Irwin, despite all of his goofiness and weirdness, is quite a person to admire considering he tries to teach, speak about conservation, and defy death (much of the time) all in one sound bite. Sometimes corny, most of the time breathtaking (due to Irwin's animal interaction), this film is worth taking your kids to. A guiltless pleasure to watch.
