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
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.
