This movie has some fun moments but just didn't quite live up to the hype of being the Crocodile Hunters first big screen adventure. For fans of CH only, but even then you are better off getting the DVDs of his original show.

This movie is for anyone who is into Steve Irwin's adventures. The movie is really good for family and he does all his own stunts. The EXTRAS on this are awesome!! The audience gets pulled into all the makings of this movie, the unexpected and the personal. This is a great movie to see Steve and Family behind the scenes when they are truly at their best!

Hey kids it's a Faces of Death Prequel
Julian Kennedy | St Pete Florida | 10/25/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course: 5/10: Okay first lets forget the movie for a minute. I mean the film is okay if you like the Crocodile Hunter and you have no business seeing it if you don't. The DVD extras however are brilliant.

For example they show, over years mind you, Steve Irwin and his misses Terri training their star crocodiles to attack a boat without eating the cast. Needless to say the training doesn't really work.

So we have wonderful footage of a barely mobile Steve complete with a knee bandage almost being chomped by a couple of over sized crocs that are some naughty shielas indeed. Now all lot of this footage makes the movie proper gussied up for whatever plot point is at hand. But it is the raw footage that shows how no CGI or mechanical crocs were used. It also covers the endless training to get the crocs used to the sets and cameras.

The crocs successfully, after a while, do ignore the cameras and lights but never their chief tormentor Steve. The crocs act all calm then as soon as action is shouted they go for Steve's jugular like they were starring in a Faces of Death video. The amount of work involved for such a relatively lightweight film is rather awe inspiring.

The film itself is rather simple. Steve and his wife find various Australian wildlife each more deadly than the last. Wildlife tries to kill Steve. Steve yells crikey. There is also an easily ignorable plot about the CIA or something that makes Kangaroo Jack look like a Charlie Kaufman film.

And a warning to impressionable baby boomers, there is a desecration of Elton John's Crocodile Rock by the Baha Men. The DVD even includes a horrible video of same in case you capture some terrorists and need them to talk quick.

One last note. For no discernible reason the aspect ratio changes when Steve is on screen and when Steve is off screen. So if you're like me and A: You weren't paying enough attention before the film. B: You have a wide screen television. C: Your remote is an all in one affair that could land a Space Shuttle and has become a sentient being. Well needless to say according to witnesses my attempts to "correct" this were pretty funny to watch."
Steve Irwin's message is conservation
William B. Hayden | Evansville IN USA | 09/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is made with all ages in mind, and the message is not self-promotion--he said he never intended to be movie star, and remarked he did not like the mentality of Hollywood--but instead to promote conservation. This movie can be watched without worrying about bad language or indecency, and instead can be educational and entertaining at the same time. This is a movie by one of the world's most well-known personalities, yet a celebrity without the associated problems of alcoholism, drugs, marital unfaithfulness, inability to follow laws, or any other vice or self-promotion exhibited by most other celebrities*. He put the majority of his money back into conservation and his zoo (in order to promote interest in conservation), he worked hard to promote his message with the last 4 years of his life in pain from all the injuries from his personal hands-on approach, never shunning hard work or danger, cared nothing about fashion or trying to look good, shunned the luxury life with the exception of promotional tours (on wildlife expeditions, he refused using a caravan, opting instead to rough it with his team), was a loving father and husband, and often told his coworkers how proud he was of them and how much he loved them--an all around good bloke. Please support him and his message and the Wildlife Warriors by educating your children and yourselves with this great video.

*After 10 years of public life, the only thing detractors could come up with is Steve feeding a croc while holding his baby boy. Keep in mind, this is a man who studied them and handled them for 30+ years at the time of this incident. The incident was made to look worse due to a bad camera angle, and the croc was already tired out before Steve's approach with his baby. Crocodilians have limited energy reserves, and the best place to be if in proximity to one (besides the rear) is directly in front, as their striking power is lightning fast from side to side. Also the croc in question was a large one, the large ones having much less forward speed on land due to bulk than a smaller more agile one. Steve was in control, and many factors were in his favor, but these facts are seldom mentioned."
