Considering that it suffers from a silly title, bad production values and rumors of development hell, Primeval KILL is actually very, very good. In fact, it's not just very good, it's excellent. I don't think I'm the only person who's failed to understand why it had such a limited cinema release- the acting is great, the chase choreography is utterly outstanding and the crocodile/gore effects are completely believable.
The plot has been described perfectly in other reviews -so I won't bother. Apparently Gustave's background was not fully exploited and some of the locations were not exactly accurate- however, if those were the 'bad' points about this film, hopefully you can make your mind up and join me in giving a two-fingered solute to those who say it's rubbish.
Primeval KILL looks like it's been made on a very high budget, but it actually wasn't. It's thanks to director Michael Katleman's epic approach, super-resourceful directing and incredible editing skills that make the film the visually stunning, ultra-realistic and intensely emotional masterpiece it is. I know all this sounds weird when talking about a 'killer-croc' movie which hardly anybody knows about, but it's true.
Watch it for the brutal fight scenes, watch it for the multiple body parts flying all over the place, watch it for the beautiful, color-saturated landscapes and photography, or even watch it for stars Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) and Orlando Jones (Runaway Jury), just make sure you watch the thing! I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed.
Primeval KILL is a devastatingly overlooked crocodile masterpiece. Watch it and spread the word -maybe then it'll eventually get another shot in cinemas.
