OK, so, we know that the writers of SyFy movies have a thing for tornadoes, sharks, crocodilians, cyborgs, and all manner of mythical monsters. They mix and match at will, things that go together, and those that don't. And they like those things to be big. They've given us things like Alien Tornado, Metal Tornado, Ice Twisters, Dinocroc, Supergator, Supergator vs Dinocroc, Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus, Megaconda, Crocogator, Mega Python vs Gatoroid, Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators, Dinoshark, Ghost Shark, Sharktopus, Sharknado, and the list goes on (I made up one of those movie names. Can you tell which one?).
I try to rate SyFy movies fairly, only comparing them to other SyFy offerings, because, to be honest, they stand alone. I mean, you just have to sit back and laugh when a movie called Chupacabra vs The Alamo is shown. In that regard, I think Robocroc was above average. You've got your nanite-infested zoo crocodile that turns into metal and jumps through the air and chomps its way through a helicopter. What's not to like? You even get "robocroc view", seeing things through the robocroc's eyes, a la The Terminator ("Food Detected").
My only problem at this point is that the writers of these things seem to be stuck in a loop they can't escape. They keep going over the same, well trodden ground. These movies are missing something basic; creativity. Where are the cool things we haven't seen before? Where are the space aliens? Ah well, with these budgets, I guess you can't be too fussy.
So let us guess what will be next- I'm thinking Robocroc vs Sharkinator.
