Product Description

From the director of Wolf Creek comes this terrifying look at nature's perfect killing machine. When a group of tourists stumble into the remote Australian river territory of an enormous crocodile, the deadly creature capsizes their boat - trapping them on a tiny mud island with the tide quickly rising and darkness descending. As the hungry predator closes in for the kill, they must fight for survival against all odds. Starring Michael Vartan (Alias) and Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill), Rogue delivers brutal action and breathless suspense as it speeds towards one of the most intense final showdowns ever filmed.

Amazon.com

Rogue brings Australian filmmaker Greg McLean, whose previous effort was the harrowing thriller Wolf Creek, back to the horror fold with an effective and well-crafted monster movie that pits a boatful of tourists against the title beast: a king-size crocodile with an insatiable appetite. McLean wisely follows the paradigm outlined by Jaws and other notable giant creature features by keeping his croc largely offscreen for the pic's first third, focusing instead on his human cast, which includes Michael Vartan(Alias) as a coolheaded American travel writer and Silent Hill's Radha Mitchell as the tour guide (Wolf Creek fans will note that film's antagonist, John Jarrett, among the ill-fated travelers). Once the monster makes its spectacular entrance by capsizing the boat, the suspense kicks into high gear as the tourists are faced with an unenviable choice: swim for their lives or wait until the tide overtakes their refuge on a tiny island. Surprisingly, McLean doesn't sacrifice quality in his pursuit of broader audience appeal; the award-winning special effects are top-notch, but so are the performances and photography, which capture the rough beauty of Australia's Northern Territory. Likewise, characters are not simply bodies waiting to be chomped; McLean's script takes the time to build them into full-bodied people, which adds a level of substance and sympathy to the story. All in all, Rogue is the meatiest in the spate of killer croc pics of recent years, and worth a look for those who were intrigued by Lake Placid or Primeval. The unrated DVD includes commentary by McLean as well as a battery of making-of documentaries, which cover the film's inspiration (a real-life croc attack on an Aussie riverboat in the '70s) as well as its impressive technical aspects. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, an us against it kind of film with real bite! September 8, 2008
Format:DVD
"Rogue" is top-notch entertainment in a genre that has suffered quite a bit with lukewarm entries lately.

Amazon has done another excellent job giving us the basics of this story and who the big stars are, so I keep my summary very brief. A small handful of sightseers have their boat nearly destroyed by a rogue croc and they take refuge on a small island that will quickly disappear under the rising tide in a river basin area in Australia. It really is that simple of a story, but superbly executed by the cast of familiar faces, especially the lovely and talented Radha Mitchell from Silent Hill, the director who is famous for Wolf Creek, terrific photography, and outstanding special effects that are used sparingly but effectively.

This is one intense thriller. The last "us against it" thriller that I enjoyed this much was Prey. In regards to croc films, this isn't quite as good as Lake Placid, but it is far superior to the more recent Primeval. The film isn't, however, especially graphic for it's genre. More seems to happen off camera, but that doesn't reduce the intensity one bit. Rent or buy this one, personally, I think it's a keeper as it has repeat value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly Good July 23, 2008
Format:DVD
Like Jaws did back in the 70s this tale gives a lot of fictional elements to its main animal villain to make the tale more terrifying. I have to admit having worked in a wildlife park with crocodiles and knowing all about them I didn't have very high expectations for a movie set around a crocodile serial killer. But having checked out the DVD I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This is one of the best man verse nature villain films out there.

The DVD in Australia (this American release doesn't give details of what's on it) comes with some great making of the film documentaries. If you can check it Amazon's version does as well, if it doesn't and your DVD played is multizone, order the Australian version instead.

The film is well shot and the two fake robot crocodiles used for the film (see them in the special features) look so realistic the actors visibly shook with fear when filming shots next to them even though they knew they were machines. Robot animal technology has come a long way from Bruce (the up close unrealistic looking shark used in Jaws interaction with human shots). Real crocodiles in the background of the film add to the authentic look as well.

The first third of the film shows some great Northern Territory wildlife and landscapes and does resemble real tours that do go on up there. Unfortunately for these tourists (made up of Americans, British and city living Australians) when they respond to a distress flare and go up a restricted river forbidden to tour boats, a large 7 metre crocodile takes exception to their intrusion into his territory. Their boat is wrecked and they are left on an island that will be underwater when the tide comes in.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 ˝- Stars: A Killer CROC that has Some Bite! August 7, 2008
Format:DVD
Rogue- (of an animal) having an abnormally savage or unpredictable disposition, vicious or solitary, as a rogue elephant.

After the huge success of "JAWS", producers have been trying to capitalize on the undersea horror genre. There have been quite a number of underwater horror films about killer crocodiles recently; "Lake Placid", "Primeval" and "Crocodile", among others. "ROGUE" is another horror film about a huge crocodile and while this film may follow the usual stereotypical plot that have plagued the genre for many years, it does have its redeeming moments. It had a very limited theatrical release perhaps because the producers felt that audiences may be a little tired of the "croc on a rampage" storyline?

Pete (Michael Vartan) is a reporter on assignment in the Australian outback. He decides to take a scenic boat tour led by Kate (Radha Mitchell), along with a bunch of other tourists. The folks are enjoying themselves, they take in the sights, swat flies, watch salt water crocs socialize (in a way) with other tourists. During the tour, Kate spots a signal flare and decides to investigate. Once in the secluded site, the group of people realizes that they are in the territory of a monstrous saltwater crocodile that swiftly sinks their boat. The tourists find themselves at the mercy of a huge predator who has a taste for human flesh and the rising waters on a tiny slump of land.

I know what you're thinking, the film must be a rethread of previous monster flicks and there is nothing to see here. Well, the film is written/directed by Greg McLean, also responsible for the torture flick "Wolf Creek". I'm not exactly sure how you felt about that film but I thought "Wolf Creek" wasn't a real effective thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally August 5, 2008
Format:DVD
A realistic crocodile movie.There have been quite a few over the years including last years stinker Primeval which had poetential but just wasn't very good.

The first thing I love about this film is the beautiful shots of the environment(in this case Australia and the Northern territory).These shots make you feel like wow there are still some amazing places that really haven't been used by mankind.The film starts out with Pete(played by Michael Vartan)joining a tourist group lead by Kate for a river tour of the northern territory.The Northern territory is home to the saltwater crocodile.Once the tour starts they see a bunch of crocodiles in the water and see how some of them can even leap out of the water.Kate goes on to how not to worry about the boat cause they won't ever attack anything bigger than themselves.

At the end of the tour they see a distress flare and Kate decides to see what it is,only thing is its in a territory where they shouldn't go.They see a boat that is smashed and floating and then bam a huge crocodile smashed their boat from underneath.They are forced to abandonm the boat on a small island,only thing is its a tidal island and once the tide comes in they will be in the water.The boat is broken and the crocodile takes the first of its victims.Eventually we learn that this crocodile has marked this as his territory and will kill anyone that invades it.

Without giving the end away I must say I was impressed by all the suspense.Its slow buildups,not just bam,bam,bam they are all dead with no buildup.You actually feel for most of the characters.I also liked how the director made this film as realistic as possible.That was his goal as we learn in the special features.Also,the crocodile really looks unbelievably real.

What is the best "giant alligator" movie?
Well as for giant Alligator, i would have to say you hit the nail on the head. HOWEVER, if you mean alligator/crocodile i find Rogue to be the best.
