Aussie adventurer Steve Irwin aka The Crocodile Hunter has avoided the death-roll and nabbed another feisty croc, hoping to save it from poachers. What Steve doesn't know is that the crocodile has innocently swallowed a top secret US satellite beacon, and the poachers are actually American special agents sent to retrieve it. Crikey! In the Outback and through the bush with his wife Terri's ever-present commentary ringing out over the countryside ("That was a close one, Steve!"), the Crocodile Hunter is out to save the gorgeous croc and relocate him. It won't be easy, but if he can handle bird-eating spiders and venomous snakes without getting bitten, gun-wielding agents shouldn't be too much of a problem.Written by
There were no scripts used in the "documentary" portions of this movie, whatever Steve and Terri said was off the top of their heads. All stunts were performed, just like the TV show, by Steve himself. See more »
When the fat lady is supposedly in the water with the crocodile, you can see that it isn't her. It is actually Steve in a fat suit and wig. See more »
There is a statement in the closing credits: "Aside from Steve and Terri, any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or to actual entities, is purely coincidental." See more »
The UK version is cut by 5 seconds to remove two uses of the word 'wanker', in order to secure a a PG certificate.
(The trailer was cut by 1 second, removing a shot of a crocodile leaping at the camera with its jaws apart, and thus securing a U certificate. An uncut PG certificate was available to the distributor.) See more »
This is an average film, bordering on cheesy, and just downright appalling at times. But upon putting this into your DVD player, you should already have guessed this! And also, I think Steve Irwin is great; this is entertainment, and nothing more.
I am quite happy having this in my collection for the comedy value of simply having it; though, if I was having my collection viewed by another buff, I would certainly take it out. There are some pretty awful examples of over-the-top acting. But then, the idea of Steve Irwin being some sort of under-cover spy should tickle anyone.
It's plot-lite, popcorn munching, mates night-in viewing. Don't take it as seriously as some of these reviews ;)
