Product Description

On the outskirts of a beach resort in Thailand, a killer croc is on the loose. Locals are missing and body parts are bobbing in the swamps. With a five thousand dollar reward offered for the capture of the beast, croc hunter Hawkins (Michael Madsen, Reservoir Dogs) is the first man on the job. But as bodies continue to pile up and jungle screams fill the air, Hawkins soon learns that this is no ordinary croc and he's in for the fight of his life.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good script goes a long way April 16 2008
By Terry R. Bamber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Average March 9 2008
By Joshua Koppel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars very uneven special effects, but kind of a nice change of pace . . . Aug. 27 2010
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com

Filmed in Thailand and part of the Maneater series, Croc (2007) as you might expect, is about a large crocodile that is chomping on the local population. While not particularly well-written, and with spotty often laughable special effects, what probably helps bolster the film are some of the exotic locations, and the cast of mostly unknown, but earnest local actors. Being from another culture, and having limited acting experience, the cast have a certain innocence and freshness. Michael Madsen (Species) is the only name star, playing Hawkins, an experienced croc hunter. Until he appears at about the halfway point, the film is carried almost entirely by the local talent.

Jack McQuade (Peter Tuinstra) the owner of Jack's Croc Farm, has some major problems. The Konsong brothers, rich influential businessmen, are trying to shut down his business. And Evelyn Namwong (Sherry Phungprasert), an agent from animal welfare is also on his case. Fortunately Jack has his nephew Theo (Scott Hazel) to help him with the business, and his sister Allison (Elizabeth Healey) for financial backing.

After Konsong's thugs break into the farm and release some of the crocodiles, Jack's animals are temporarily suspected of being responsible, after human remains are discovered in the ocean. When the killer croc strikes again, grabbing a small boy, it is clear that another much larger animal is to blame. After being fired, Evelyn teams up with Jack, who is hunting the croc. After meeting Hawkins in the jungle, they form one big happy team.

Croc is full of ridiculous moments, probably none more so than when the killer croc invades a swimming pool. Some of the attack scenes are quite effective, including one where the young boy is swallowed whole by the beast. A fake croc is effectively employed in some of the attacks, but the budget apparently ran low in other areas. Often the suitable footage to make scenes with the croc look passable apparently was not available. Instead the filmmakers try, mostly unsuccessfully, to get by with cheap tricks, stock footage, and fast editing. After a while, these visual shortcomings become a joke.

While the special effects are not always up to snuff, and the acting isn't vey polished, Croc does have some entertaining moments. Perhaps not enough to recommend as a buy, but if you are a fan of the Maneater series, the film is certainly worth looking for on the Sy Fy schedule.

Nothing wrong with these movies at all. Just good sci fi entertainment. Nothing serious and there's not supposed to be. Just entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars This crocodile had a taste for some Thai food! Sept. 2 2012
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are some decent moments, even moments of suspense, in this rogue crocodile movie (speaking of "Rogue", make sure you see that movie). The exotic locale of Thailand, including some actors and actresses, help to enliven this outing and, quite surprisingly, Michael Madsen helps to ground the movie and give it some empathy. As the story goes an American runs a rundown croc zoo with live demonstrations but is having trouble paying the rent. That's convenient as some local land developer/ gangsters want him out of the way and keep sabotaging his zoo and making trouble for him with an animal rights overseer (somehow I don't picture Thailand as having those...). It doesn't help matters when a large, rogue croc kills some locals after some of the American's crocs have been let loose. So he gets involved in trying to save his crocs only to find that there is an actual large predatory crocodile terrorizing the area and he ends teaming up with the attractive female animal rights overseer and Michael Madsen, a hunter who has been on the trail of this particular killer for years. The end of the movie is a nice showdown between these (and a couple of other people) leads and the titular man-eating monster. A nice effort and a decent watch, especially if you're in the mood.

Note: the review above is for the stadalone movie "Croc". Amazon's review process apparently will not let us create a separate review for the triple feature of the "Maneater" series that also contains "Sea Beast" and "Shark Swarm". For my reviews of those standalone movies please go to those movies as sold as solo features. My overall review for the three film set is that "Sea Beast" rates 4 stars, "Croc" 3 to 3.5, and Shark Swarm an abyssmal 1 star--avoid that at all costs. On the cheap the triple feature is worth purchasing because of the better than average "Sea Beast" and "Croc" and I would grade the overall experience ("Shark Swarm" included) 3 stars.
