One of the Worst Directed Films I've Ever Seen
9 October 2012 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Brutal River (2005)

BOMB (out of 4)

Thailand delivers this creature feature, which is without question the very worst that I've ever seen. In fact, this movie made me so mad that I really wanted to Google its director, find him and punch him right in the face. The story is about as simple as you can get as various fisherman go missing on a Thai river so others go out to kill the giant crocodile. THE BRUTAL RIVER is a downright brutal movie from start to finish. I love creature features and they're one of my favorite sub-genres. Even the junky movies that show up on the SyFy channel are things I watch and I must admit that I get excited about them no matter how bad or silly they are. This film here is just a complete and utter disaster right from the start and the thing just gets worse as it moves on. I've watched quite a few movies in my life and I hate to make strong comments without thinking about them but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this here is one of the worst directed movies I've ever seen. I'm really considering call it the worst but I'll sleep on that part. Just take a look at the "romantic" scenes early on and how embarrassingly shot they are. Just look at the slow motion used and you can't help but cringe. The attack sequences are some of the worst I've ever seen and they're so poorly put together that you can't help but roll your eyes. The CGI croc is one of the worst I've ever seen and I think the guys at The Asylum are even sitting back laughing. The dialogue is downright horrendous, the pop song had me considering suicide and lets not even get started on the acting. I will admit that THE BRUTAL RIVER is so incredibly bad that I did manage to laugh at it a few times but after a while it just became so torturous to sit through that I couldn't laugh.
