Seeing as it was SyFy I was not expecting much, but you'd think Croc would be a little more watchable than it actually was. The scenery is very nice, quite luxurious and colourful while allowing a little bit of foreboding also. However everything else equals to a truly terrible movie. The editing and photography are not awful, but there were times with techniques like the quick cuts that they did get rather obvious. A big let down here is the croc, a lame adversary if there ever was one. It is not menacing in the slightest, nothing is done with it as next to nothing is done to explain its origins or why it does what it does and there are even contrived attempts to make it quirky. Even worse is how it looks, not only does it look crude but it seems as though those behind the film were never sure of what size the croc should be as it kept changing in size and length, often alarmingly so. The music is not much better, generic and never enhancing what was going on, while the script is aimless and stilted, the story suffers from too many underdeveloped character sub-plots and contrived attacks and not enough suspense or genuine horror, the pacing is sluggish and the characters are ones that are little different than the usual SyFy creature movie characters and the exposition is so uninteresting that you don't identify with them one bit. The acting is terrible, even from Michael Madsen who looks and sounds as though he didn't want to participate. In conclusion, the scenery is good but the movie is not. 1/10 Bethany Cox
