    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" Collapse

    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.
