WHAT I LIKE?
For me, CRAWL is the best Crocodile Movie of ALL TIME. PERIOD! I was a little bit apprehensive on the Trailer of Crawl when I first saw it. But when I watched the movie. I was left at the edge of my seats most of the time and I came out in the movie house amazed and impressed with this flick. CRAWL is a movie about survival. It focuses on a father & her daughter stranded in flooded town under a Category 5 Hurricane. Since the area is located near a swamp, crocodiles were swept away in the flooded community as it continue to roam around and hunt for food. By that scenario alone, it us actually terrifying. What I like about CRAWL is how they maintained thrill and scare all throughout. It is actually realistic and can happen in real life. I really loved the scenes on the basement. I was holding my breath every time. Also, the Prosthetic are impressive. I can see flesh & bones coming out and more blood too. Most of the scenes are pretty gory & disturbing and it makes the movie more effective and scary. The thrilling parts are executed very well. I must also commend the Creation of the Crocodiles. It looks real and very precise. Editing is great and Cinematography is superb. The Climax of Crawl should be the Climax of any Creature film on this genre. I can never imagine that a Crocodile Movie at this setting and parameters could be so good. I also love the blend of family drama between the father and the daughter. It makes the film human in nature. I really commend the performance of Kaya here. She deserves more Hollywood Movies like this. This worth-watching all-over again.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
