My first Deep Blue Terror weekend was a huge success with 7 films watched and 3 books! Last weekend I looked at five films. This weekend so far I've watched another three and plan the same for tonight. Here I share with you my thoughts on another one I looked at.
Starring: Michael Madsen, Peter Tuinstra, Sherry Edwards
In Thailand the owner of a crocodile farm battles to save his business from a local developer and gangster while being blamed for a killing rampage of a giant crocodile.
The first half hour of this film is very dull, focusing on the financial woes of the farm owner Jack, and his battles to save his business from a corrupt property developer who wants to build on his land. We see him battling with animal welfare, running away from the tax people and getting into trouble with the developer. It's not very interesting at all. We do see a couple of crocodile attacks which are ok but not enough to get you excited. Add in a very halfhearted teen romance coming into it and Jack making eyes at Evelyn all the time...gah.
By the second half of the film, Jack and his friends are looking for the crocodile who has killed a friend, aided by the one shining light in the film which was crocodile hunter Michael Madsen. I liked him in the part but the film just liked the exciting attacks that you see in most shark films. It was all a bit underwhelming and a few of the supporting cast were pretty bad. Too slow to get into it and not enough action to stop your mind wandering.
