Storyline

This film tells the legendary tale of hero Krai Thong, who used his extreme force, strength of will and superhuman skills when entering a battle to confront the largest crocodile in the world. This fierce monster, Chalawan, has the power of turning into a human being when he enters his golden cave. Chalawan, in human guise, went into town one day and was utterly captivated by the daughter of a millionaire, Tapaokaew, and kidnapped her, returning with her to his cave. Her father, distressed by his daughter's disappearance, made an announcement that anyone strong enough to kill the legendary Chalawan would get as a prize his daughter, and a lot of money. Krai Thong knew this was a job for him. Written by Anonymous

Adventure/Horror about giant crocodiles ... and male potency
22 August 2002 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Thai adventure-horror "Krai Thong" is an average piece of cinema that still doesn't fail to entertain on a trashy and exotic level. The production values are limited, so are the special effects (mainly giant crocodiles). The story centers around such a giant predator who kills many people. The village chief offers half his fortune and his daughter to the man who can kill the monster. Enter Kraitong (another spelling is the titular Krai Thong), a muscular hero, who discovers the secrets of the giant reptiles...

The story is based on Thai folklore and has some interesting aspects, but is always predictable. The most unusual thing about it is the hero, very attractively interpreted by "Nang Nak"-stud Winai Kaibutr. He not only marries two of the chief's attractive daughters, he also sleeps with both the women of his opponent. There's a symbol of male potency you don't normally see in a politically correct western movie.

Apart from that little erotic spice, "Krai Thong" offers everything you'd expect from a "giant crocodile movie". Enough said, I guess. I give it an overall rating of

5/10
