SUPERCROC
Rated: UNRATED

Copyright 2007, The Asylum
Submitted by VULTUR



THE CHARACTERS

Captain Lynch – Good army guy; one of our ‘stars.’  One of the few army people who actually does things.

Private Celia Perez – Good army guy (well, gal); one of our stars.  Another army person who actually does things.

Dr. Leah Perrot – Scientist who makes a lot of inaccurate statements.  Obsessed with the crocodile’s eggs.

General McFadden – Head incompetent army guy, makes ineffectual plans to stop crocodile.

Various other military – Incompetent army guys, either helping steal the eggs or helping McFadden with ineffective plans.

Assorted townsfolk and croc chow – That about says it.

The Supercroc – 100 foot, 10,000 ton crocodile.



LESSONS LEARNED

-   Crocodiles are the densest animals on Earth.

-   There are giant forests between Los Angeles and the coast.

-   100-foot crocodiles are difficult to locate.

-   “10,000” ton crocodiles can live in underwater caves for “centuries”.

-   The US military can win World Wars, but not kill one stupid crocodile.



STUFF TO WATCH FOR
1 min – Why can’t we hear what they’re saying?
5 mins – Nope, still can’t hear ….

~ 75 mins – We’re getting ready for this movie’s only exciting scene …


NOTABLE QUOTES

Dr. Perrot: "… they’re impervious to modern bullets."


Reynolds (Crazy croc girl): “IT’s coming! We gotta get out of here.”

THE PLOT

Okay, a bunch of Army people are wandering around rather aimlessly.  We have to watch this for way too long.  They are talking so quietly you can hardly hear them even with the volume turned up high.  Finally, a crocodile (supposedly, the graphics make it look like a floating piece of … um … fecal matter) comes up and eats somebody, but we don’t really get to see much. Our Heroes still don’t do much. A girl comes wandering up, all scared, and tells the Army guys that they need to get out of here.  They of course pooh-pooh her fears, and somebody else (I think) gets eaten, but they never showed much, so I might be wrong. Finally they find some huge eggs.  The predictable semi(?)-evil military/scientist wants to get the eggs, etc. 
So this big slow-motion croc chase ensues.  Crocodile gets spotted, army sends planes and helicopters after it, croc vanishes again. Rinse and repeat.  This is punctuated by the ineffectual army guys doing a lot of hand-wringing while mapping its approach to L.A. and Dr. Perrot making some misleading and incorrect statements about the crocodile. 
As for Dr. Perrot, she is the obligatory movie pseudo-scientist who comes off as an idiot because the movie-makers didn’t take time to do any research. In this one, Perrot makes some major errors. She keeps using the word “archosaur” like it meant this specific kind of crocodile. It's really a very broad classification including dinosaurs, alligators, crocodiles, etc. … but who cares?  There are much worse errors here. It came out of undersea caves where it had been for hundreds or thousands of years (what was it eating?) For example, she also says that archosaurs are impervious to "modern bullets". Huh? And HOW IN $^%@ does it weigh “10,000 tons”?  Is this the patented “Depleted Uranium Crocodile?”

Even worse, a major reason the crocodile doesn't get blown up by the airplanes is that it keeps vanishing into the woods. The Air Force and Army can't find a “10,000 ton” crocodile near LA?
 OK, back to the “plot”. During one of the (ineffective) sorties against it, the crocodile jumps up and grabs a helicopter in its mouth.  This goes on for (seemingly) minutes till the inevitable crash comes.  But not only do they make even this scene boring (!), the special effects in this scene are probably the worst effects since 1960!  Everything is totally low-resolution and blurred. 
   Finally, the crocodile reaches the city (where Our Heroes are now). Now the military is going “Oh No! Can we use bombs in L.A.?  But if we don’t, the crocodile will kill people!” … You know how it always goes when the military want to bomb a monster in a populated area.  Our Heroes face several scenes with croc attacking buildings, but finally Our Heroes blow it up with a bomb placed under its soft underside.
As one final complaint, for a monster movie, there isn't nearly enough action. I like mindless action movies, but this is kind of boring. All the inaccuracies and dumbnesses, maybe even the horrid special effects, could be forgiven if it was at least exciting - but no! It isn't even a good "mindless action movie". The only real "action" scene is right at the end when the croc gets blown up.   
This movie could be titled “What Not to Do With CGI.”

Looks like something else to add to the quickly growing list of negative reviews for Supercroc.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
