Editorial Reviews

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. But "Gustave," as the natives call him, is also on the huntm -- always on the move, always elusive, always hungry for human flesh. 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!

Customer Reviews

It was pretty good action movie.
Victoria J. Dennison
The only thing this movie does do is pull the two plots together in at the end... for about 3 minutes.
Kevin Stanton
I like giant crocodile movies and I'm guessing you do too if you're thinking about seeing this movie.

When I rented primeval, I was expecting (and hoping) for a sci-fi channel type movie about a monster crocodile that would attack everyone. Well, it was partly like that. A group of journalists is sent to a civil war stricken South African country to report on the capture of this man eater.

The journalist meet a few local villagers and hook up with a crocodile expert. However, their lives are threatened by much more than just a crocodile when the cameraman accidentally films men from a local warlord's army executing a tribal holy man and his family.

The crocodile does play an important part in this movie; but I felt that it became more of a movie about the Burundi civil war; its war lords; and a general statement about ravaged Africa as a whole. Some people, I have read, did not like this movie. I think its worth a try, I certainly enjoyed it.

By the way, Gustave (the killer crocodile) is indeed real. He lives in Burundi and may be the largest freshwater crocodile in the world. I Googled "Gustave crocodile in Africa" and got a BBC News link from a 2002 article. Interesting.

"Primeval" tricked me. I knew nothing about the film other than a brief blurb I'd read that said it was about a serial killer and was based on a true story. Turns out the "serial killer" is, in fact, a large, hundred-year old crocodile named Gustave. Ho ho!

Eh.

The story is about a news team that has been sent to Africa in order to cover a story on (and perhaps capture) the elusive beast. The movie briefly explains why a blood-thirsty crocodile is news (and even why it would be left up to journalists, a cameraman, and two wild animal experts to catch a critter that's been eating unsuspecting humans for decades), but the explanation is weak, at best.

Even weaker is the awkward melding of the croc plot with another story thread involving an African civil war that is propogated and prolonged by a blood-thirsty warlord named -- that's right -- Gustave. Is this a powerful political metaphor? Probably. Is it done well? Of course it isn't.

Populated by stock characters of the worst kind (although Orlando Jones manages to do some good things with his smart-aleck cameraman role), "Primeval" succumbs to ludicrousness (the characters, after a recent croc attack, decide that a rickety shack built IN the river is their best safe haven), pointlessness (the dull bonfire "bonding" scene where a tribal drum session is followed by the Westerners singing "Amazing Grace" off-key), and confusion (most of the croc attacks take place at night and are dizzyingly hard to follow). Tack on a hokey (albeit unfortunately true) message about American apathy toward African brutality, and you're left with a jury-rigged mess of a movie, a schizophrenic cinematic experience that tries to be viscerally scintillating as well as politically charged. If it had picked one or the other, it may have had at least a shred of consistency to give it pluck and cohesion. Instead, it's a mawkish blend of macabre and moralistic.

And it's not about a serial killer.

As if Africa didn't have problems enough to deal with - now we can add a giant primordial crocodile to the mix.

Laughingly based on a "true story," "Primeval" is a mediocre monster movie in which three American reporters, a trained crocodile expert and a surly German guide ("Das Boot"'s Jurgen Prochnow) travel through the wilds of Burundi to track down the legendary man-munching menace known to the local natives as "Gustave." In addition to the creature, the team has to contend with some vicious tribal leaders who are waging an intense civil war in the region.

Afflicted with a paltry budget, "Primeval" is marred by uneven acting, cheap-looking special effects and the all-too-common chauvinistic attitude that sees Africans as either malefactors intent on slaughtering their own people or incompetent victims just waiting for some knight-in-shining-armor Westerners to come riding in on their white horses to save them. In fact, so much time is devoted to the conflict between the Americans and the African warlords that it's quite easy to forget that the giant crocodile is in the movie at all. Actually, considering the rather unconvincing appearance of the creature on screen, that might, in fact, be the best thing that could have happened to the movie.

Seriously, this movie is really not good. If you want a great Crocodile movie, go see "Lake Placid". Better actors, much better acting, and a more realistic crocodile... but not by much!
People have gone over the plot, so I will not rehash it here.
The plot is not very good as it intermixes the horror Crocodile and the African political storylines. And as with most bad horror movies, stupid decisions are made at times that wind up killing the actors.
Jurgen Prochnow's talents are wasted in this film as the big-game hunter who is supposed to help the film crew. Dominic Purcell once again proves he has no acting talent. I wish they would kill him off on "Prison Break". The only talent here is Orlando Jones. He does a relatively good job, but we do not even see him being killed. He just pops up dead later on.. What a waste!
The bonus features on the DVD are thin. There is one "deleted" scene that is pretty amusing, where they show a scene on how the Warlord was supposedly to be killed originally. The "Making of" is not very interesting.
I did give the movie 2 stars, because it did keep me watching for 90 minutes.
