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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a plot.... May 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
People are on a boat tour in the depths of Australia... croc gets pissed off at intrusion and destroys boat... continues to eat people and kidnap them to make snacks of them later. Not bad, but not great.

"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).
