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.

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.
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.
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.
Usually nowadays decently acted and directed creature films are of the reality ilk ("The Reef", "Open Water", "Cloverfield"): there is little story, it is more about the reality and putting audiences in the situation. That is no bad thing as it brings new tension to the genre; however, it is nice to watch a good creature flick that favours story telling and character development. "Rogue" is just this: a good old-fashioned monster movie given a bright, new modern lick of paint.
The setting is the backwaters of Australia (think the crocodile rivers in "Crocodile Dundee") and an American magazine writer (Michael Varton) goes on a touristy boat trip (led by "Silent Hill"'s Radha Mitchell) where camera-happy foreigners get to snap photos of the crocs in their natural envoironment. It soon goes wrong, though: after encountering a pair of local bad-boy rednecks (Sam Worthington and friend), the party see a distress signal and go into forbidden waters. Here they become stranded on a small island and must face the dual problem of a giant man-eating croc and the tidal river rising to cover the island.
Given that this film was directed by Greg McLean (the man who directed "Wolf Creek") I was surprised by the shift from reality (documentary-style) backpacking film to a more classic storytelling approach. It really works well and (in similar fashion to the creature movies of old) you get to see the beast gradually. The effects are stunning and totally realistic and the sense of scale of the croc is impressively given even more authenticity through the excellent sound work (it's snapping, chomping jaws and heavy tail smashing into the water).
It's obviously not as good as "Jaws", but then most films (of any genre) aren't.Read more ›
Its only a shame that we dont see much of the crocodile till the last half an hour or so of the movie as it is done very well i would say almost flawlessly. The death scenes are handled well despite the fact there isnt a tremendous amount of gore and guts.
Its the last half hour of this movie which makes it the ultimate croc movie, the tense scene inside the crocodiles den is unbelievably frightening, the way its so confined and the crocodile is so big makes it almost hard to believe that- well i wont reveal anything!
All thats left to say is this movie is excellent i feel disturbed which is good, because i most certainly wont be going to australia and taking a swim. The acting and special effects are awesome as is the excellent scenery, my only concern is the movie falters with a bit of a poor script at one point, other than that its damned near perfect.
