Sure, blame Global Warming again…
14 June 2012 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Michael Madsen, Guinness Book world record holder for appearing the most in insignificant and cheap B-movies, receives top billing in killer crocodile creature feature! This can mean two things… Either he depicts the killer crocodile itself or he depicts a lonely, grumpy and embittered hunter. Sadly, the makers opted for the safest second option. In spite of his top billing, Madsen doesn't properly appear in the film throughout the first forty minutes or something. The main plot revolves on the sly and hunky American Jack McQuade who owns and runs a popular crocodile farm in a touristy beach community in Thailand. However, when a mean local real estate agent and his sidekick try to get hold of his property to build a highway, they attempt to bring Jack in public discredit by releasing some of his tame crocodiles. When several people are brutally killed, Jack is obviously blamed by the authorities even though the real culprit is a gigantic Saltwater Crocodile. This species exclusively appears Australia waters, but the enormous critter took a side-swim away from its usual territory towards Thailand because of … global warming! Ever since a handful of years, global warming has become such an easy and grateful excuse for horror authors. They happily use it as an explanation for all sorts of grotesque occurrences; even adrift crocodiles. Personally, I have a weakness for giant killer shark/crocodile movies, so I'll pretty much watch everything, regardless of quality level. "Croc" of course is a very numeric and unsurprising effort, but it nevertheless provides some decent entertainment, laughs and bloodshed. There's a high amount of virulent croc attacks, including the devouring of a young child, and a wide variety of chewed off body parts on display. The croc also has a quirky sense of humor, as he sneaks into someone's private pool and patiently waits until the owner goes for an evening swim! The monster effects vary from adequate (puppet) to easy (borrowed documentary footage) to downright stupid (computer engineered effects). Because of this, the animal often seems to differ in size; from a rather small cute croc to a genuine prehistoric monster. Hilarious! Director Stewart Raffill, in the 80's and 90's mainly specialized in lame family and adventure movies like "The Philadelphia Experiment" and "Tammy and the T-Rex", managed to cast several beautiful Thai actresses. Their English accents are horrible, but they sure are nice to look at. Michael Madsen clearly also was happy with his free vacation in Thailand, as his performance is *slightly* more vivid than usually the case.
