Better Than Average

"Not quite a giant croc film although the title creature is at the high end of normal size. Set in Thailand, an American runs a local zoo. A local Thai businessman is trying to force him out of business by any means necessary. One tactic has the zoos crocodiles set loose. Unfortunately this coincides with the arrival of a rather nasty croc that takes to snacking on the local population. The arrival of a mysterious hunter (Michael Madsen) provides a chance for the zoo owner to find and eliminate the dangerous creature.
I have to say that I found this one to be far better that I was expecting. The parallels between the Americans and Thais were well thought out and played without being heavy handed. Acting was pretty solid all around, even to the most minor characters. While not really a giant croc film this is certainly a superior example of a man-versus-nature movie. I definitely recommend this one to fans of croc films or man-eater films. Check it out."
Gorgeous Thai Actress

"I stumbled upon this movie this morning on the cable SciFi network and found it to be surprisingly good, much better than similar people eating horror flicks. Although the movie was interesting and very watchable, the real reason I remained tuned in was that a striking new beauty entered my field of vision. Sherry Phungprasert, evidently a new or obscure actress in this country, was simply gorgeous and she demonstrated that she has screen talent as well. I certainly will be looking for more of her in the future. I have learned that this beauty is a yoga instructor, actor, and TV show host in Bangkok, Thailand. What a delightful, hot and sensuous vixen!"

"This movie was ok. It had a logical plot, good acting (which is generally bad in this kind of films, and ok CGI (although the croc its mostly composed of stock footage). One bad thing its that this DVD its very bare-bone. It does not even have subtitles nor other languages. I think they used barely more than half of the DVD space to fit it in (thats if it was a Dual Layer). But I considered ok especially for the tiny budget that was used, even for these kind of films. Worth checking out."
A good script goes a long way

"a cracking adventure, made on shoestring budget but delivers entertainment. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. Some of the acting is dodgy but cripes people in real life aren't always convincing. The music could have been much better but the characters are likeable and good to each other. I want to see films with this sort of kindness in the characters. I am fed up with swearing, aggressive, 'blow everyone except myself' blockbusters which are the norm now. This is not a 'blow your mind' film but a good solid enjoyment."
