A riverboat safari turns into a battle for survival in this tense horror from 'Wolf Creek' director Greg McLean. After signing up for a wildlife cruise in the rugged outbacks of Northern Australia, seen-it-all-before travel writer Pete McKell (Michael Vartan) soon finds himself on the menu when the boat he and his companions are travelling in is sunk by a 25-foot, maneating crocodile. Marooned on a small mud island with the tide rising, McKell, along with hard-bitten skipper Kate Ryan (Radha Mitchell), now faces a race against time to come up with a plan to prevent the tour party becoming just another entree.

Its clear what this film is about, a group of tourists on a guided tour go to investigate a distress flare and end up stranded on a tiny island with a damaged boat, a rising tide, night drawing in and a massive crocodile who isn't happy with their presence. It's typical killer croc fare, nothing is particularly new hear, but it is done with a certain class and finesse. The cinematography is simply stunning, the special effects do enough to not take you out of the movie and there's enough action, drama and suspense to keep you entertained to the end.

I actually think this is a 3.5-4 star film. I love 'creature features' and this is one of the best. But, I've given this blu-ray a five star rating because the picture and sound quality elevate it so far beyond the DVD and film alone.
This is a visually stunning film anyway, with director Greg McLean lingering lovingly on the sweeping shots of the Australian outback - and, having been there myself I can say he really does it justice! Once the action starts the film shifts to a lot of night scenes; and even then the picture quality excells. All in all, this is one of the best blu-rays I have seen. 10/10 for picture quality.
Then we get the sound: a ground-shaking, wall-vibrating DTS HD-Master 5.1 track that really utilises my speaker setup.
The extras look the same as the UK DVD edition.
I get really annoyed reading blu-ray reviews that don't bother saying anything about the picture and sound, and in all my reviews I aim to give the reader information that is actually useful rather than just my opinion of the film.
Finally, then, if you like the film (read other reviews for detailed plot information) then this is a definite no-risk upgrade to blu-ray.

Format: DVD
The simplest ideas are often the best, and there are few movie ideas more effective than depositing your characters in a hole and watching their increasingly desperate attempts to extricate themselves from it. In Rogue the hole is a tiny island that a group of tourists in Australia's Northern Territory find themselves on after a giant salt water crocodile in a particularly bad mood causes them to wreck their tour boat, and just to make matters worse, it's on a tidal river and they'll be up to their necks in water by nightfall. Oh, and nobody knows they're there. Foolproof, right? Wrong. In Wolf Creek director Greg McLean's hands it's a real wet sponge of a movie, professionally more than competent but often just... dull.

A box-office disaster in its native Oz and barely even released in the US, for once you don't feel the Weinsteins were entirely unjustified in shelving the movie for a year while they tried to figure out what to do with it before just dumping it when no-one was looking. This doesn't feel like a film that's been destroyed in post-production so much as one that just doesn't really work despite everyone's best efforts. Radha Mitchell is fine as the heroine and the low-key supporting cast convincing enough - the tour boat even gives a convincing reason for imported American `star' Michael Vartan - and there's some spectacular footage of the Territory that may well be the best digital photography to date. But the film just ambles along at a relentlessly even and unhurried pace, taking forever to strand its supply of walking food and never getting particularly excited even once the croc starts picking them off from its private larder.

I bought this based on the great reviews it received and was really impressed. Firstly check out the cast, Sam Worthington from Avatar, Radha Mitchell from Silent Hill and Michael Vartan from One Hour Photo. The scenery is breathtaking and immediately makes you want to go to the outback of Australia. The supporting cast are pretty good too, a few over used stereotypes but nothing too cringe worthy. Some good builds of suspense through the film (spoiler warning) and I like the fact that you don't see the Crocodile much at all through most of the film and when you do see it, they made fantastic use of the budget on the CGI special effects and it looks superb, nothing over the top and it's not a freakishly unrealistic size either, just very big!

Overall a great film, will definitely be watching it again soon. In context of the budget of the film I would say Special Effects 5/5 Acting 4/5 Visual/Audio 5/5.

Saw this film a couple of years ago so it was only a matter of time before buying on bluray.

A great film with some nice performances from Radha Mitchell and a pre-Avatar Sam Worthington.

This film is not as predictable as a lot of horror/creature feature films and to me is a bit of a hidden gem in a world of over-rated blockbusters from the bigger studios.

The transfer on this bluray is amazing. Some of the shots are worthy of a David Attenborough BBC Nature series.

A great film at a great price with some nice bonus features too.

Format: DVD
Rogue starts off really well. Pseudo-documentary cinematography and understated performances from well drawn characters (when one character empties an urn of ashes into the river, it's all show and no tell). Things continue in this tightly controlled vein after the initial croc strike lands our hapless band of protagonists on a mid-river island with the tide coming in and a killer beastie in the water. The tension is stacked up, and some lovely moments really set it apart from uber-silly B-movie fare such as Mega Shark et al.

However, this arc does not continue indefinitely, and ultimately comes down to a classic one man vs beastie showdown. It's clichéd and a shame, lacking the tension and guts (metaphorically) of the opening two thirds. It's perhaps lazy to compare all creature features to "Jaws", and Rogue goes some way to moving away from the stylistic precedent set by that classic, but in the end it Rogue ends with one man against a toothsome monster, and I'm sorry - that's been done before, and better.
