Storyline

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 Press kit

Strictly For the Croc Hunter's Fans
28 July 2003 | by (Durham Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter plays - well - Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter in a fun adventure type movie with little in the way of a believable story line but lots of information about Australia's crocodiles and venomous snakes and spiders.

The story - such as it is - revolves around some sort of U.S. satellite equipment that somehow finds it way to Australia after surviving its drop to earth from orbit, and is promptly swallowed by a monstrously large crocodile. Irwin sets out to find the crocodile and move it to safer territory, believing that it's being stalked not by CIA agents trying to get this thing back, but by poachers.

Forget the story. It's secondary - and, to be blunt, not that great. Basically, this movie serves as an ad for Irwin's "The Crocodile Hunter" TV series, and most of it is shot as if he were taping the show, as he fights crocs and plays with various and sundry poisonous and dangerous animals in his usual animated way. You have to give the guy credit - he's got his part down pat!

There's a simple way of knowing whether you'll like this movie or not. If you like "The Crocodile Hunter" you'll like the movie. If you don't, you won't. See how simple that is! I like "The Crocodile Hunter" and I think Irwin is quite hilarious. Strangely, though, for all the fun and laughs involved here the movie seemed to go on longer than its allotted 90 minutes. Perhaps Irwin is better in half hour segments. After that he may begin to get a bit overwhelming.

But it is fun. I'd give it a 7/10, knowing full well that this movie will get its share of bashers as well.
