A mediocre creature feature shot in beautiful Thailand. Worth a watch for fans of the genre...
First off, this premiered on the SyFy channel, so you should understand this movie does not have a big budget. However, Croc is much better than most of the SyFy movies made. I am watching (or re-watching) every killer Croc or Gator movie I can get my hands on right now, and Croc a is mediocre but fun killer crocodile flick...
Croc is set (and actually shot) in Thailand. The scenery is beautiful, this fact alone almost makes this movie of the week worth watching. The majority of the local casts acting is laughable, but the woman are beautiful so that helps. Michael Madsen plays Croc Hawkins (yes that's really the characters name!), a crocodile hunter who has been tracking this ferocious beast for months. Madsen has fun with the part, it is a shame that he doesn't even make an appearance until (exactly) 45 minutes into the movie, but once he joins the group he is there until the end.
The killer croc is executed fairly well, using almost all real crocodile footage except for the actual attacks, which are a mixture of CGI and practical. There is a fair amount blood but really no gore (however you do see people in the mouth of the croc as it attacks). I would've preferred some good gore, but I am a gore hound!
Overall, Croc is mediocre at best. I was entertained from start to finish thanks to the beautiful scenery, beautiful ladies, Madsen hamming it up, and lots of good crocodile footage. It is not a film anyone "must" see, but if (like me) you have seen every other killer croc/gator flick out there and are looking for something to watch, this is a fun (enough) 90 minutes of crocodile carnage...
