With a name like that how could I not own this film right, I know, I thought the same thing. Produced by the legendary Roger Corman I just had to have it. Of course I did see it on the SyFy Channel and then got the DVD upon its release. Still the film is called “Dinocroc” so anyone that has read any of my reviews before knows that I would have to have this.
A mad scientist has found the DNA of a prehistoric creature and wants to mix it with modern crocodiles, he is successful. He creates two but one of them kills the other and makes its escape from the lab. It makes its way out side unto the public, fresh food. So the company that spawned this creature sets out to capture it, even bringing in an Australian hunter. But the local animal control officer and sheriff are on the job as well, which could expose the company.
This is exactly what you would expect from the SyFy channel and the great Roger Corman. The film had three writers who have worked with Corman before or again after this, one in particular wrote other Corman flicks like “Big Bad Mama” 1 and 2, “Raptor”, and “Dinoshark”. They all crafted a good creature feature here and a true B movie complete with characters that you may not even care about, great body count material. The acting is on par with the script but that just makes it more fun and fits the style of the flick. The film was directed by Kevin O’Neil who would also direct “Dinoshark”.
This was good over all, not the best Corman flick but still good. It would have two sequels in “Supergator” and “Dinocroc vs. Supergator”, wish “Supergator would be released on DVD. Also it would have been cool to get a commentary or something on this DVD. Over all this was a good flick, good for a SyFy flick.
But one of the test animals breaks out and escapes into a nearby swamp/lake. With accelerated growth and a huge appetite, the company knows they must retrieve the animal quickly. But they don't seem to react quickly enough as the creature grows faster than they expect. An Australian crocodile hunter is brought in. Together with the local animal control officer and the sheriff they set out to track and stop the beast.
This could easily have felt like a fifth movie in the Carnosaur series (Carnosaur 1-3, Raptor) but other than the accelerated growth there is no connection. This one is fresh and new. Sort of a cross between a Jurassic Park move and a giant crocodile movie. The acting was reasonable and some of the scenes where handles extremely well (i.e. the meshed scenes as the boy looks for his dog while his brother stays home). An above average dino flick that makes typical Corman use of building suspense instead of overabundant special effects. Check it out.
After a short and seemingly meaningless sequence in the Australian outback, we're now in U.S., learning all about how a biotech company called Gereco Laboratories has been developing some sort of accelerated growth technology based on extracts taken from the remains of a prehistoric remains of a crocodile, as the possibilities are endless. As expected, one of their enhanced critters escapes, following the death of a stupid scientist, and thus begins the usual corporate cover up.Read more ›
