    One of the most entertaining killer croc films i've ever seen.

    Primeval is a very poor film that is a complete waste of time, I don't know what was going on in this film because it was so darn convoluted. The plot doesn't make any sense at all, I never realized it was about an alligator but I don't care either, the acting is bad and so is the dialogue. The whole film is a mess of a horror movie although you won't understand anything in this movie and whatever message it has is drowned out by all this dumb movie plot. Don't watch this B-movie or should I say F-movie flick. Breakdown for "Primeval": Presentation: 2, Plot: 1, Acting: 2.7, Script: 2.4, Lasting Appeal: 1, Verdict: 2.2 out of 10 "Terrible" Full Review »

    The Crocodile bits are well done, with the action being satisfyingly cheesy and exciting. However the performances are 2-D and it's mixing of real life tragedy and monster carnage does grate. A rental for fans of Alligator or Anaconda, but otherwise give it a miss. Full Review »
