Storyline

After an African dinosaur ancestor of the crocodile is found, Dr. Campbell uses its DNA to create prototypes at Paula Kennedy's Genetic Research Co. (Gereco) lab. However one must be put down after killing someone, another escapes and the information is kept from sheriff Harper. His daughter, county dog catcher Diane Harper, helps her ex (welding artist Tom Banning) with his kid brother Michael's beloved dog. They bump into Campbell and discover the dinocroc is growing, having escaped down a tunnel. Although Gereco hires Australian crocodile specialist and intrepid hunter, Richard 'Dick' Sydney, the beast proves impervious to bullets, so the body count rises alarming. Written by KGF Vissers

Another giant beast decides to have lunch
29 August 2009 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

Pretty stupid, but relatively harmless nonsense.

Try to imagine a hybrid child of Jaws and Lake Placid; this flick shamelessly rips them both off at will. A giant crocodile with Stegasaurus stuff on its back roams in as well as out of the water, munching on everybody it can find. It growls a lot, too. At least the frequent deaths are often suggested rather than gruesomely exploited visually. You've got a skeptic sheriff, of course. His goofy daughter is a game warden who's against euthanizing puppy overpopulation. There's a guy who wants revenge against the monster running around and screaming a lot. There's even a big game hunter complete with Indy Jones garb. The ever-present annoying character who you love to hate, and that you know will get devoured sooner or later, is a loud-mouth freedom-of-the-press psycho journalist who is as irritating as those cable "news channel" talk show hosts.

The CGI is so fake it's funny, and the dialog is also absurd. People always yelling at a beast challenging it to fight is even more laughable. The story storms forward with its primeval creature making one kill after another, there's rarely a dull moment. The way they finally get rid of the thing is both innovative and amusing.

Goofy stuff, and OK if you watch it for the sole purpose of laughing your insides out.
