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
This isn't a movie, it is just an extended version of the popular Crocodile Hunter show on Animal Planet. And that isn't such a bad thing, if you like the show, which I do. I was going to slam this movie based on the first part, but in the last 40 minutes it really picks up and becomes entertaining and mildly funny. I really liked the chase on the river because Steve keeps thinking they are poachers and tries to fake having the croc in the boat. The whole part was just funny to me. Of course, I still don't even know what that little round top was and why the government wanted it. But, who cares, when you watch this you aren't expecting a plot that requires brain cells.
FINAL VERDICT: If you like the Crocodile Hunter show, then this is something you would like and maybe find amusing. A good way to waste an afternoon.
