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
There were no scripts used in the "documentary" portions of this movie, whatever Steve and Terri said was off the top of their heads. All stunts were performed, just like the TV show, by Steve himself. See more »
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 »
Although this movie doesn't really deserve 10/10, it was highly entertaining. I gave it a 10 out of respect. This movie is a nice blend between a Hollywood picture and Steve Irwin's documentaries. It may be a little annoying at times - with the switching cameras and scenes - but it doesn't spoil the fun. The storyline might not be that great, but hey Steve didn't got famous for his movies, but his show. You'll hear a lot "crikey" and "ain't it a beauty " - some of Steves famous one liners - during the movie, in his funny Australian accent. This alone is a reason to watch this movie. ;] The only negative thing about this movie is the really bad acting of his wive, Terri, but ala you can't have everything. I can recommend this movie to anyone who grew up with Steve Irwin or used to watch him in the past, or anyone else who liked his show.
