While the title of the movie is just dripping with everything campy, cheesy and low budget, then "Robocroc" actually turned out to be entertaining enough to watch. How so? Well, in a campy, cheesy, low budget kind of way.
The story is about a military rocket crashing during an accident and experimental nanotech robots escape and take up residency in a huge crocodile, turning the ferocious predator into a massive steel predator instead. This robotic predator is killing and spreading terror in a local wild- and amusement park.
The storyline was as predictable as it comes, and it was also as cheesy as it comes. I mean, nanotech robots turning a crocodile into a robotic version of itself? Sure, why not...
As far as the acting goes, well with a movie of this particular type and caliber, you know exactly what you are going to get and what kind of talents will be in the movie. And they were right on the dime.
Effects-wise, well then "Robocroc" was actually adequate enough. Sure, there were moments where you have to struggle not to smirk or laugh at the horribly animated CGI crocodile, but once it turned full robotic, it actually looked quite nice.
"Robocroc" is the type of movie that you watch when you have nothing else to watch, or when you need some kind of pointless entertaining on the screen while nurturing a bad hangover.
