About the Director

A 25-year veteran in the Hollywood exploitation field, writer/producer/director Jim Wynorski is responsible for over 150 varied motion pictures in a myriad of genres. Leaving behind a successful commercial business in New York, Wynorski relocated to California in 1980 and soon found himself on the doorstep of his childhood idol, B-film king Roger Corman. The rest was destiny, recounts Wynorski, who soon found himself hired by the renowned movie mogul to cut coming attractions for all of the company's new action and horror films. It was like grasshopper learning from the kung-fu master, says Wynorski, who claims his six-months internship with Corman taught him more than four years at film school.

Sometimes, you see a DVD in a supermarket bargain bin, it grabs your eye, you figure it's not much money and buy it for a laugh, and when you get it home, it turns out to be an undiscovered and underappreciated cinematic gem. This is not one of those films. Roger Corman does it again with another of his laughable creature features. As a dinosaur fan since I was four years old and a trained environmental field biologist, I'm a sucker for the Giant Reptiles Eating People genre of films. Emphasis on the "sucker." I bought this thing without first renting it to see what it was like. There's not a great deal of plot in this thing, most of which you can guess from the title alone, so I'll turn to other aspects of the film.

THE GOOD: There were a couple of moments of honest-to-goodness, jump-out-of-my chair shock. Some of the main characters get a bit of depth to them, and are quite likeable. The designs of the two beasts are certainly interesting and rather imaginative, with some basis in reality. Several of the women in the film are attractive. In places, like some of the chase scenes, the CGI is very well done. (But not all of the places; more on that later.) The scenic shots are breathtakingly gorgeous. (At least, the scenic shots that aren't jumping around like a cricket on a hotplate are gorgeous.)

THE BAD: For a science fiction movie, it's kind of light on the science part. Basic physics, for a start. Alligators don't gallop. Even if they did, a 40-foot mutant 'gator would be utterly unable to gallop like a two-meter Australian freshie. Honestly, I could go on and on and on, scene by scene, taking up megabytes of bandwidth with all the wretched mistakes that anyone with a modicum of science training could catch, but I haven't got that much time or patience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this film. 15 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of those dreadful tongue in cheek dinosaur type films with quite poor quality croc and gator cgi. . . However I love this type of film and have watched it several times. Its the usual story of someone playing about with genetics and creating super beasts that then escape creating havoc. If you like this type of film then you should love this. I recommend it but it wont be everyone's cup of tea.

3.0 out of 5 stars BIG FREAKIN' MUSHROOMS 28 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Two giant croc-type animals escape from an experimental lab in Hawaii and nearly kill everyone one. David Carradine is the owner of the lab and wants to keep everything quiet. He brings in a military team to kill the crocs, only to discover fake TV bullets don't kill giant fake crocs. The team is killed, do next Carradine calls in "The Cajun" an American version of Crocodile Dundee, down to the hat. As the body count increases, so do suspicions. People who successfully escape one croc at one water hole always wind up at the place where the other croc is located.

In addition to men in uniforms, the crocs also feed off of girls in bikinis. Our Cajun hunter teams up with the local authorities to hunt down the crocs, the same people Carradine wants to hide everything from. If the crocs don't kill you, Carradine's men (or woman) will. The final scene was so bad it might as well have been clay-mation.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Fake looking creatures, CG muzzle flashes (these actually match the sound) bad lines, bad acting, bad science. Would have been a great movie for 9 year old males in 1960.

If you like watching Asylum films while stoned, such as Moby Dick, or Mega-Shark vs. whatever, then you can't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic in the Making 2 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Take the best/worst features from every Corman that you've seen, and you get this film. About the only thing that he missed is UFOs though there is a touch of the X-Files here. A very good excuse to let your brain idle in neutral and ENJOY !!
