AKA "Croctease." See, thats funny because its a play on words, and funnier because I pointed it out. Anyone watching this flick will easily be confused, since it is an immense bore, yet each of the reviews preceding its domestic release would lead you to believe that this was the defining giant crocodile movie. Wrong. Greg McLean succeeds once again in portraying the Australian landscape in the most picturesque ways possible, with gorgeous cinematography and framing. Its too bad the film is supposed to be about a giant croc, because landscape is all you get for nearly half the film. None of the characters particularly stand out in this one, though the lead clearly distinguishes himself early in the film, destroying any suspense on that angle. So essentially, you have standard characters making bad business decisions in on a remote river with little to no gore and only glimpses of our CG croc until the end. Once we get the final reveal, the animal is no more impressive than in similar films like the superior Primeval. What annoys me more than anything in a film of this nature is taking so much time in attempting to establish the integrity of the film by placing the characters in a believable setting, only to include a ridiculous over the top ending that lacks any semblance of reality. I wanted desperately to find merit in this film, but for my money it is an average giant animal flick with no payoff. A river tour meets with disaster when crossing into a giant crocodile's territory.
