This one ended up being a massive disappointment as a horror film though there's some good stuff overall here. One of the biggest positives here is the absolutely fun and cheesy creature attacks here that make this much more fun than expected. It's presented pretty much as one long action sequence here from the start, with the opening encounters in the forest where the opening ambush and later discovery of the eggs in the secret cavern are great at introducing the creature's size and habitat out in the woods as well as the military attacks that result in the discovery of the creature which goes deep into the forest for some really fun action to start this off. That follows into the film's best parts and what really fuels the film in that it turns into a giant monster movie with a cheesy bent as there's a lot of fun here in the continued military attacks from ground troops firing off at it through the forest to the exciting attacks that take place in the march to the city as there's an air-strike, a series of helicopter assaults and a final attack during the full-on city destruction scene which allows this one to get plenty of fun in the cheesy destruction moments of the panicked crowed fleeing that the film becomes enjoyable because of this extended kind of scene. While it's the film's best part, it's also one of the most damaging in that that the kind of giant monster film that it becomes, there's just very little horror elements present since the croc is so much bigger than it should be and it doesn't really attack anyone. Instead, it's pretty much attacked all the way through with the kind of extended, drawn-out scenes here of the military brass meeting to discuss what to do with it and determining what kind of creature this is that the pace is built away even from a horror film that it drops down a lot from these issues. That brings the film along with nice monster movie action but not as much works here as a horror film with a croc so big it can't attack anyone in the city destruction scenes since there's no one around and the rest of the plot tends to revolve around the same scenes of military tactical decision making. The last part that lowers this one is the rather lame and embarrassing-styled CGI here for the croc as it doesn't really look all that great with the usual amount of flaws here in the failure to interact with the surroundings, the complete inability to blend together to the action presented and generally coming across with the same level of detail as decades-old video games which have long been a staple of such films and continues on in here. These here manage to keep this one down from what it could've been.
Rated R: Graphic Language and Violence.
