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. With little choice, she beaches the vessel on the closest dry land -a tiny mud island. With a rising tide and only half an hour of daylight left, fear grips the group as they realize they are trapped in the lair of a 'rogue' crocodile, governed only by its need to hunt and kill. Begrudgingly, Pete and Kate ... Written by

The tour boat is initially drawn to the crocodile's territory by the distress flares of another boat in trouble. It can be assumed that one or more persons died in this attack, though no bodies are seen. However, in the article shown in the closing shot of the film, only four deaths are listed - those of the characters followed by the action of the film. See more »
Nothing wrong with yet another killer crocodile movie. especially one that keeps the beast hidden until the second half. A group of tourists on an Australian river is stranded on a tiny spit of sand after a croc attacks their boat. Trying to get from the spit of sand to the riverbank becomes the group's major challenge as the monster croc picks them off one by one, and their spit of sane begins to go underwater. Radha Mitchell is the tour boat captain and French-born actor Michael Vartan (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Luke Perry here) plays an American journalist. When we finally see the croc, it is huge and fearsome indeed. Vartan ends up in its lair and must face it down. Great CGI and physical special effects. Most of the movie was shot on sets and a back lot, but you'd never know it. A must-see for killer croc fans.
