Trivia

In real life, as seen in this film, an attempt to bait the crocodile failed. The team used a live goat as bait one night, and the team continued this for days. One day the goat disappeared. The camera failed the night before due to a storm, and then political issues in the area forced the team out of the country. Leaving them unable to know what happened that night. See more »

Goofs

Errors in crocodile biology: Crocodiles don't roar, they have no vocal cords (although they do hiss). They also can't see from underwater at night, nor can they swallow underwater. See more »

Quotes

Mathew Collins: It's a wonder there are any crocs left.
Jacob Krieg: You may be grateful for my skills. You're after a maneater.
Mathew Collins: There are more than enough human beings on this planet. The crocodile is exceptional. A creature of far greater value.
Jacob Krieg: You don't seem stupid, so you must be insane.

Better watch Discovery Channel
18 February 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

3 votes are also for good camera work for initial 30-40 minutes of movie.Its bad movie,its really very bad movie.Don't waste your time as well as your mood and your next day by watching this movie.

It starts on well,have some very spectacular visuals of Africa,but it disintegrates,disorients thereafter.Its very good example how you neglect most vital part(rather say it soul)of movie that is SCRIPT and ends up most boring movie ever made.Storyline simple,leave it nothing to say more about it.I usually watch horror flick for special effect ,but it is not the case here.It seems director avoids such situation where special effect needed,if its there though very few which looks really primitive as compared to other Hollywood movies.I think it could have been better,overall its bad in all aspects except photography.
