The plot of this
film is way too fast with the tourists
arriving and then partying which makes
you wonder why there's not enough
reasoning for what is happening. It's quite cheesy but it has
some interesting moments. There's good shots on the island as well
as the surfing in the ocean with the
There's a nice shot on both Bog and Jeremy surfboarding on some waves along with
sharks. We also spot a good setting on Cecily filming them and suddenly
sharks are circling her. It for sure made me wonder if she will fall on their prey in which I must admit this kept me watching to see as to whether or not she's going to be attacked. It was fairly well done.
While everyone is enjoying their time on a somewhat deserted island of course we spot a surfer fornicating with his girlfriend in a lagoon in which this moment was well concentrated and of course a typical situation in a horror flick.
We spot a nice cheesy suspenseful moment
with the group of friends running off the pier
with the croc going under it and smashing
it apart following them. Lots of heartpounding action with them running away and then there's pirates
kidnapping these people looks quite corny
too and uninspired.
I enjoyed a moment with one of the friends whom is Zach trying to save his own skin and not caring for others as well as becoming incredibly annoying by getting on what he deserves as this was nicely put into the story.
There's a nice cheesy shot on the croc

make it since the croc is right on her
A good situation when Jeremy is showing an aggression by
stabbing the croc and it looked
impressive when he is thrown in the air
by this creature.
The most suspenseful scene was when the
croc crashes through the boat about to
attack the pirate John Dirks and boy does it look graphic as to what happens to him which gorehounds will love.
The surviving group of friends try to lure this animal into a deadly trap and when we think that this beast is dead we have a dumb blonde kicking at it and getting pissed off as we all get a feeling that this isn't a good idea at all.
One of my favourite moments is when Cecily challenges one of the pirates which looked good and tough as I had a feeling that she will let him fall into a trap as this looked clever to watch.
Bottom line is that this story is a little rushed but it does eventually slow down so we can
understand it a bit more but the story is
quite pointless as there's no reason why
this croc is after these tourists and
chasing them for no good reason at all. Best to skip this and watch Crocodile instead.
The acting is
quite average as it didn't do anything
for me. Lead actor Dax Miller (Bog Hall) seemed to
just have the good looks in the film as
he didn't seem convincing to play a
character. Yet he is very energetic when he lets out his aggressions so I will give him good credit for that.
Kate Fischer (Cecily) seemed to do not too
bad as a tough Australian as she knew how
to stand her ground. She was sharp within her speaking as well as her performance too. Plus does well by standing up to someone in order to trick them which she really packs a punch while doing this.
Taryn Reif (Arti) came across well onto the camera with her presence and good looks in which she seemed to do an okay job when getting aggressive as well as acting like a ditz whenever she came across that way.
Duncan Regehr (John Dirks) was
impressive as a redneck shark hunter as well as with his cold
attitude staring at the water on the boat
with his speargun waiting for the croc to
rise. Has a goood aggression within his speaking and was a powerful force of nature here. He was the best in the cast.
Matthew Borlenghi (Zach Jardine) was fine as the
typical clown of the clan but he wasn't
funny. He for sure came across as truly annoying with his sarcasm making you want to dislike him big time. He was a bit stale within his characteristics though and needed a bit more inspiration.
There's a wild lustful
scene that involves Taryn Reef and her breasts are exposed. She also
does some sunbathing as well as relaxing
in the water too.

also has some interesting other types of
music too which blends in well. Alot of crashing and banging sounds which works for a flick like this as well as some strong classical music and powerful synthesuzer composing too. Also there's the odd peaceful music when the gang is having a good time on the island as well as the close to near ending too which is nice and relaxing.
