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 »
What is admirable for Steve Irwin and his wife is that they do, what I am calling stunts, every day for a camera. I think the bloke had lost his marbles when his father taught him how to wrestle crocodiles. But Irwin uses his charisma like he does everyday to make the movie enjoyable, and that is the only reason why you need to watch this movie. But, of course, someone was oh so smart enough to add a story that we are supposed to care about.
A crocodile swallows a top-secret American device that two intelligence agencies set out to retrieve in Queensland, Australia. The crocodile hunter and his wife are put into the middle of it.
The movie is cute in its own crazy way and I would recommend this kind of stuff to kids, who would no doubt, ooh and ahh at the snakes and spiders. Otherwise, I do not think anybody would really jump at the chance to see the acting talent of our two main 'actors', aside from being worried about one of them getting hurt. There is nothing special for the CROCODILE HUNTER movie, besides Steve and Terri themselves.
