a5c7b9f00b An idyllic wildlife cruise disintegrates into terror when a party of tourists are stalked by a massive man-eating crocodile. Pete McKell, a cynical American travel writer, joins a disparate group of holiday-makers on a river cruise through the waters of Kakadu National Park. Initially Pete clashes with their tour captain, Kate, a feisty young woman who assumes he is just another 'city-slicker' in search of a quick thrill. After an uneventful day cruising the river, Kate is reluctantly persuaded to steer their boat into unexplored territory. They discover a secluded lake but terror strikes when their craft receives a powerful blow from beneath the murky depths and begins to sink. With little choice, she beaches the vessel on the closest dry land -a tiny mud island. With a rising tide and only half an hour of daylight left, fear grips the group as they realize they are trapped in the lair of a 'rogue' crocodile, governed only by its need to hunt and kill. Begrudgingly, Pete and Kate join forces to keep hysteria at bay and in the process start to see beyond their initial impressions. Their first attempt to escape fails, but then Pete has an idea - they must trap the crocodile to enable the group to flee to the other side of the island whilst Kate swims for help. Pete volunteers to stand guard, but without warning, the beast breaks free and targets Kate who fails to resurface. As darkness descends and the muddy waters rise, a terrifying struggle ensues with only one probable outcome death.
An American journalist on assignment in the Australian outback encounters a man-eating crocodile while trapped on a rapidly flooding mud island.
I have a fondness for the killer croc horror sub-genre—from the slow-burn psychological terror and realism of low budget Aussie flick Black Water to the cheesy, B-movie goodness of far trashier fare like Crocodile 2: Death Roll—and was interested in finding out which approach director Greg McLean had opted for with his reptile-on the-rampage offering Rogue. Turns out he went for both.<br/><br/>The film starts in the same vein as Black Water, with river guide Kate Ryan (played by Radha Mitchell) and her boat-load of tourists attacked by a huge saltwater croc, leaving them stranded on an isolated mud-flat as the tide slowly comes in. There&#39;s not a lot of croc to be seen in this portion of the film, the tension derived from never knowing where the voracious creature is lurking and when it will attack next. It&#39;s slow going but brilliantly executed, and benefits from some lovely cinematography.<br/><br/>Eventually, desperation forces the people to try and find a way off their muddy prison, a decision that results in a couple of casualties, including Kate. After this, the film takes an about turn and becomes a far more commercial beast, with the hero of the piece, travel writer Pete McKell (Michael Vartan), discovering the crocodile&#39;s lair (with a little help from Kate&#39;s dog) where he miraculously finds Kate still alive. But guess who&#39;s on his way home...<br/><br/>This second half of the film is undeniably fun, packed full of thrills aided by very impressive special effects, but the shift in tone is way too abrupt and sits very uncomfortably with all that has gone before. Because of this, I can only declare the film a partial success.
Dear God, where do I begin. Let&#39;s just say that the character and plot development was so bad that you just start worrying will the dog survive... And it do
