Product Description

Product Description

Inspired by the true story of a legendary 25-foot, man-eating crocodile, PRIMEVAL roars and rampages onto Blu-ray Disc. Starring Dominic Purcell (TV's PRISON BREAK) and Orlando Jones (RUNAWAY JURY, EVOLUTION), this edge-of-your-seat horror thriller will blow your mind in this almost unbearably intense format. Determined to capture the voracious monster, an American news crew travels into the darkest reaches of the African jungle to stalk their prey.

Watch this cunning killing machine blaze his blood-soaked trail of terror in gut-wrenching, eye-popping clarity. Experience sheer terror as Gustave gnaws through your nerves, while the shrieks of his hapless victims haunt you in spectacularly enhanced audio. Devour the adventure and taste the fear with Blu-ray High Definition!

You know, I didn't think this film was bad at all. I think there's actually a lot more to the movie than some viewers expect, and so it is that some end up disappointed by the fact that death by crocodile doesn't stand at the center of every scene. Frankly, I find it rather inane for some individuals to claim they were snookered by the film's billing as a story about "the world's most prolific serial killer." Look at the DVD case, people -- there's a great big crocodile on there. I'm also not going to fault Primeval for daring to go beyond the comfort zone of a mere killer monster movie, especially when it's helping to highlight the growing tragedies of civil war and genocide taking place in Africa (under the morally bankrupt UN's uncaring noses). One has to ask oneself exactly who the monster in this film really is -- as far as I'm concerned, it's not the crocodile.

With so many reporters out there writing fake stories, I sort of like the idea of sending these corrupt conmen to deepest Africa in search of a nine-meter-long killer crocodile. That's the fate that befalls Tim Manfrey (Dominic Purcell) when he fails to verify the facts on a major story he writes. This crocodile, dubbed Gustave by the locals, has been killing villagers in Burundi for years, but "the world" only starts to care when he kills a UN forensics expert working on the mass graves full of people recently executed in this war-torn country. Aviva Masters (Brooke Langton), the network's animal specialist, is all gung ho to go, as is a famous herpetologist determined to catch the creature alive.

When I was in kindergarten, we always used to sing this crocodile song (I forgot the name of) and according to the lyrics, her jaws were never closed because she always gossiped about the rest of the animal kingdom. Well now, the croc in "Primeval" answers to the name Gustave and his jaws are never closed neither, but for a completely different reason. Since the beginning of time, he reigns over the swamps & rivers in the poorest regions of Burundi and he supposedly devoured over 300 people already. Gustave normally just feeds on locals, so nobody in the Western world cares whether he lives or dies, but he now made the terrible mistake of eating a female white reporter and his quiet and peaceful days of over for good. A prominent American newspaper sends out an expedition, complete with reporters, local guides and a professional crocodile hunter, to capture Gustave alive.

When "Primeval" came out a couple of months ago, it already earned itself to be noted one of the worst films and receives one harshly negative review after the other. Quite undeservedly if you ask me, because it really isn't such a terrible movie and even benefices from a handful of good aspects, like a solid cast and engaging CGI-monster effects. The scriptwriters simply made one incomprehensible and unforgivable mistake! Why on earth did John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris had the ambition to use the premise of a low-brained monster feature to alert us about the disastrous political situation in Southern Africa? There's a 25-foot-long crocodile running amok and yet this movie mainly criticizes how the Western world shamelessly turned its back on the poverty & civil war issues in Burundi.

"Primeval" is another one of those movies where you can have fun working out the movie equation where you name the films that were cannibalized to come up with the formula for this one. What if "Jaws" came out of the water? Okay, yes, you would have one scene in "Deep Blue Sea," but you would also have "Primeval." The nature guy in this film even claims it is the crocodile that is the most perfect killing machine on each, so take that, Matt Hooper. What if the expedition in "King Kong" was really trying to bring back a giant crocodile alive? You would also have "Primeval." What if you sent a news crew concerned with ratings like in "Broadcast News"? What if you use a goat for bait just like in "Jurassic Park"? What if you just took "Lake Placid" and moved it to Africa so that you can play it against the backdrop of civil war like in "Hotel Rwanda?" Add up all of these films and what you get is "Primeval." Do not be surprised as you watch this movie that time and time again you mind wanders to those other, much better films. Even the characters in this one acknowledge they are trapped in "Jaws," although they are way off base on the "Godzilla" analogy and I must note with pleasure that the natives are not willing to start singing a song in English like they did in "Congo."

The opening scene is somewhat interesting. A United Nations group is checking out what they think is another mass grave in Africa when it turns out to be something different namely a giant killer crocodile named Gustave (Really. He is supposedly still out there dinning up and down the Rusizi River that is his home: this film is inspired by true events as opposed to being a true story).
