Primeval (2007)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
01.19.07

Primeval (2007) I went into this movie knowing it was a "Killer Crocodile" movie, despite it being advertised as a serial killer movie. But it's something altogether different, more of a political/save the people in Africa movie more than anything else (which would be fine, if it wasn't advertised as a horror movie). It's also one of those movies that begin with the statement "Inspired by True Events." EVERY STORY IS INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS!!

Cumulatively I bet the crocodile is seen a total of five minutes within the 90 minutes. Granted, these effects are great and it's probably the best-looking giant crocodile I've seen in a movie. But that leaves 85 minutes that's basically filler, with stereotypical, flat characters and a "message" that was probably pitched as "high concept" when it was in development. This message is that the killer crocodile represents man but there's no way to stop it-and ourselves-from killing. Blah blah blah...

In the end, the two white American survivors of the group end up bringing a stray dog and a stray African boy back to America. I even thought this was offensive.

If you want to see a killer reptile movie watch KILLER CROCODILE 1 & 2 or even LAKE PLACID.
