THE PLOT:

Something has escaped from a research lab and is on the loose in the nearby lake. The lab has denied the claims and covered the entire thing up. But makes plans to recapture the creature. The creature is a living dinosaur called the Dinocroc, now two teens are out to prove it exists and stop it before it kills again.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

The story of Dinocroc is nothing we haven't seen before in Jurassic Park and Sabretooth. But I got to admit I never heard of the Dinocroc and frankly between you, me and the wall, I thought Roger Cormen made it up. But I did some research after I watched the movie and discovered there is a dinocroc. Which makes this movie even more interesting. There are some minor matting issues that knocks it down a peg or two and there are some minor character issues but as a whole the movie works and I do enjoy it. 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

The creature effects are impressive and I'm thinking about doing more research on the Dinocroc, see what I can learn. But I didn't like the b**** that was head of the research company and the sheriff is likable but kind of dumb. So I agree for the most part with Zedd and I too give it 7 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job with what they were given.)
+ DINOCROC (The dinocroc being real is cool.)
+ STORY (Basic, nothing new but sometimes nothing new works.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (Good, not perfect, but good.)
+ ACTING (The acting was pretty good.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MINOR MATTING ISSUES (The dinocroc was lighter in places.)
- MINOR CHARACTER ISSUES (Certain characters were annoying.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on Roger Cormen movies or don't like dinosaurs then this isn't the movie for you.)
