Crikey! In the beginning of this movie, it almost seems like a footage taken from a National Geographic episode about Australia's dangerous wildlife and at any time the infamous theme song would come on. Unfortunately, to my dismay, it didn't. However, the introduction was a nicely crafted scenery of the Australia's outback, complemented with the sneaky attack from our big star attraction, the gigantic man-eating crocodile.

The story goes like this - a group of tourists goes on a wildlife cruise through the water of Kakadu National Park. Pete McKell, a cynical American writer, joins the group of holidaymakers. They are eventually stranded on a mud island and trapped in the lair of a rather persistent 'rogue' crocodile, governed only by its need to hunt and kill.

Basically, the point of a story with this kind of genre is to see a lot of people get mauled and killed together with a pool of suspense thrown in between. The suspense was fair enough. However, the number of people dying is incredibly dissatisfying, and even though some were caught in the jaws of the predator, it wasn't done enough justice. It needed more action - definitely a killjoy in that aspect.

The story seemed very short, incomplete and makes you want to go, "Seriously? Is that it?" Moreover, there were so many censored cuts in the film due to the vulgar words said, till it causes such a disruption to the flow of the movie, never mind their conversation.

There were one or two relief moments that came at the right time, a good touch to a serious film like this, as it didn't affect the intensity of their perilous situation. In addition to that, the ending credit song would definitely made you laugh and sing along. Sadly somehow, it's the song that sticks to your head instead of the movie.

This film rolls itself into its own death trap and overall, seems like National Geographic with a bit more drama.
