    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.

    Primeval isn't horrible, but what's with the "serial killer" crap? It's a movie about a crocodile for god's sake.

    Strangely self-serious, and without covering the prerequisites of top-shelf nastiness that contemporary horror requires, this giant crocodile movie turns out to be neither fish nor fowl.

    One of the few monster-crocodile movies that simultaneously tries to rip off "Jaws" and "Meet the Press."

    By the end of the film, I was hoping everyone on two legs would die, preferably suffering as much on screen as I was in the audience.
