    Plot: A terrifying tale of survival in a crocodile inhabited mangrove swamp. Grace, her boyfriend Adam and younger sister Lee decide to take a river tour whilst holidaying in Northern Australia. As they drift into a mangrove swamp their boat is suddenly capsized and Jim disappears. Realising they’ve been attacked by a crocodile, Adam drags Grace to the safety of a tree whilst Lee clings on top of the overturned boat. Adam and Grace frantically try to manoeuvre Lee and the boat to the tree but it is firmly stuck. Stranded in the flooded mangrove swamp, the three holiday makers must work out what to do to survive.

    My Verdict:

    Green Tea says:

    88 minutes of enduring a less than psychological and numb story lines. As promised but yet not available in the movie, the movie lacks everything it promised; psychological thriller, survival horror, chilling crocodile attacks. No psychological thriller in it - just a mere nothing but enduring the lame and non-sense plot. No survival horror - but merely a little like a cat-mouse chasing game. Crocodiles attack - more like a crocodile trained to do show on a movie and besides you can go and count how many times it appear to attack. The casts are nonetheless giving their much best efforts in there, and I thought that are good but not good enough to pull in the psychological horror much more furhter. The cast group is small with only 3 charactres playing with the cheeky crocodile by the way. Where's everybody you ask? Too bad for not been the best horror flick on crocodile! The lamity and super dull adventure masked with beautiful scenes from Australian outback, thus enjoying the ride for the crocodile hunt can be an agony.
