An idyllic wildlife cruise disintegrates into terror when a party of tourists are stalked by a massive man-eating crocodile. Pete McKell, a cynical American travel writer, joins a disparate group of holiday-makers on a river cruise through the waters of Kakadu National Park. Initially Pete clashes with their tour captain, Kate, a feisty young woman who assumes he is just another 'city-slicker' in search of a quick thrill. After an uneventful day cruising the river, Kate is reluctantly persuaded to steer their boat into unexplored territory. They discover a secluded lake but terror strikes when their craft receives a powerful blow from beneath the murky depths and begins to sink.

Before i saw this movie i said to myself probably it will be like any other crocks movie which most of them were pretty obvious and not really suspenseful and the acting were mostly bad . In most of them the crock didn't look real and the size was not realistic enough. In this movie it looked really fine and they did a good job to show the crock only when it was the right time and by that they made it more realistic and interesting.This movie caught me by surprise, it was a quite suspenseful movie with good build up and acting and the end was quite good. I recommend to watch it, i'm sure you will enjoy. I'm giving this movie 8 out of 10.
