Note: the review above is for the stadalone movie "Croc". Amazon's review process apparently will not let us create a separate review for the triple feature of the "Maneater" series that also contains "Sea Beast" and "Shark Swarm". For my reviews of those standalone movies please go to those movies as sold as solo features. My overall review for the three film set is that "Sea Beast" rates 4 stars, "Croc" 3 to 3.5, and Shark Swarm an abyssmal 1 star--avoid that at all costs. On the cheap the triple feature is worth purchasing because of the better than average "Sea Beast" and "Croc" and I would grade the overall experience ("Shark Swarm" included) 3 stars.
Jack McQuade (Peter Tuinstra) the owner of Jack's Croc Farm, has some major problems. The Konsong brothers, rich influential businessmen, are trying to shut down his business. And Evelyn Namwong (Sherry Phungprasert), an agent from animal welfare is also on his case. Fortunately Jack has his nephew Theo (Scott Hazel) to help him with the business, and his sister Allison (Elizabeth Healey) for financial backing.
After Konsong's thugs break into the farm and release some of the crocodiles, Jack's animals are temporarily suspected of being responsible, after human remains are discovered in the ocean. When the killer croc strikes again, grabbing a small boy, it is clear that another much larger animal is to blame. After being fired, Evelyn teams up with Jack, who is hunting the croc. After meeting Hawkins in the jungle, they form one big happy team.
Croc is full of ridiculous moments, probably none more so than when the killer croc invades a swimming pool. Some of the attack scenes are quite effective, including one where the young boy is swallowed whole by the beast.Read more ›
I have to say that I found this one to be far better that I was expecting. The parallels between the Americans and Thais were well thought out and played without being heavy handed. Acting was pretty solid all around, even to the most minor characters. While not really a giant croc film this is certainly a superior example of a man-versus-nature movie. I definitely recommend this one to fans of croc films or man-eater films. Check it out.
