"As giant mutated eel movies go "Razortooth" isn't half bad and it has a few gross-out scenes because giant mutated eels also have the munchies. The characters arn't all that interesting, including a harmonica playing animal control officer and a fat slob who must be Kentucky Fried Chickens best customer. He has to make a quick pit stop at a port-o-pottie, must have been all those batter fried drumsticks, and soon feels Razortooth snacking on his really huge butt, and he and his bucket of chicken are soon dragged down through the plumbing by the cuddly eel. There is also a mad science professor who calls down four of his students for extra credit to help him correct his mistake of mutating eels.
The plot is thin enough to allow more screen time for the ravenous eel and the movie trots out the old cliche-no one else can out-run the eel but of course the hero does and in one funny scene he even rides the eel like a bucking bronco.
The movie is fun in a gross kind of way but if you don't see it, it is no big loss and I have to mention the poor guy running from the eel carrying a cup of coffee and he never spills a drop even with the eel severing half of his body. Starbucks must be so proud."

"Razortooth: 5 out of 10: I like creature features, I really do. Even cheesy made for Sci-fi channel movies can occasionally bring a smile to my face.
Lately we have been inundated with a ton of creature feature movies, many involving giant snakes. Razortooth is actually an above average member of the genre.
I know technically the creature is a giant eel, but unless it is being hunted by a French Chef for the sake of this review the Eel is CGI Giant Snake. Moreover, the CGI is very cartoon like; more animated than photorealistic. In addition, the CGI gore looks like well CGI gore. It is doubtful the movie will scare anyone. The acting, while serviceable, is not going to win any awards; and the women keep their shirts on.
Despite all this Razortooth is good B movie fun. The film is well lit. It never slows down much, there is a ton of cannon fodder and the movie is not afraid to eat a couple of kids just to spice things up. Overall, I enjoyed myself, but certainly would not go out of my way to watch it again. It is however, worth your time if you enjoy a good old-fashioned CGI Giant Snake Movie starring a giant eel.
Plot holes big enough for a genetically altered eel

"When "Razortooth" begins, the omens are not good. Two escaped convicts are running through the bayou while police (we know they are police because their T-shirts say "police") give chase. Before long, the titular razortooth has dispatched the police, leaving a grisly scene behind. We then move to the film's primary characters, the sheriff (Kathleen LaGue) and her ex, Delmar Coats (Doug Swander) of animal control. They meet at a trailer park, where an astonishingly stereotypical group is assembled, and immediately Delmar tries to rekindle their relationship while the locals quickly become dinner for razortooth, including Lou (whose name we know because his paddle boat says Lou on the front), a man who seems never to be without a bucket of chicken in his possession. Also involved are four college students seeking extra credit by working as assistants for a scientist who is actually no longer part of the program (which made me wonder why the school didn't know before sending the students) and a canoe outing of children.
The stereotypes are appropriate for a movie that brings almost nothing new to the creature feature film. There are, for example, obvious parallels to Frankenfish, including the setting and the fact that the creature in this film, a type of eel, has been genetically engineered. And, like many creature feature films, this one is full of things that don't make sense. For example, one character flees the monster eel but refuses to drop his cup of coffee, carrying it the entire while. Another implausibility occurs when one of the victims is attacked in a place an eel of the size of this one could not possibly get to, much less extract the victim through. In fact, there are gaping plot holes in this film everywhere.
"Razortooth" is not the worst film ever made, and it does have its moments of humor, many of which are clearly deliberate. The effects are not bad, either. Yes, there are some scenes in which the eel appears completely unreal, but there are more in which the eel seems almost real. The two leads are likable enough, but ultimately there just isn't enough here for me to recommend this movie to any but the most rabid of horror buffs."
Eel Be Comin' Around the Mountain...When Eel Come

"If this is the only film laying on your shelf on a long, long and lonely night, it is worth the effort...but don't expect anything but hokey pokey sci-fi amateur B.S. This one has no social redeeming value...and is worth the price I paid $.01 (really). I think it took more money to create the insert for the DVD box than it did to fund the horrendous special effects. If I were involved in this production, I would post a fictitious name on the credits screen. Razortooth is "dull"...has no bite...and has such a worthless script, you'll find yourself laughing out loud. I think the person that carfted the artwork for the insert should be the highest paid individual with this project. Worthless...a waste of time...if I may...TOOTHLESS!"
