Dinocroc vs. Supergator (2010)

| Horror Science Fiction

On a lush tropical island, working under a secret government charter, Martin Drake has not only grown sprawling acres of giant vegetables, but inadvertently spawned two mammoth reptiles as well. Now they've broken free of their enclosures, and Drake has only one option: kill the creatures before word gets back to Washington and they close him down. When Drake's first team of well-armed mercenaries gets wiped out within hours of setting down in the jungle, he turns to one lone hunter, The Cajun, to go in single-handedly. But will The Cajun be cunning enough to find the creatures and destroy them before they turn the blue waters red with the blood of tourists. The only hope is to bring the monsters together and make them fight. When one emerges victorious, that will be the time to strike and kill the other. It's a risky plan, but ultimately the only one that may work. One of David Carradine's last movies.

Just perfect...


This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.

A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.


Having watched both "Dinocroc" and "Supergator" prior to this particular picture, I would just like to mention that there isn't much continuity between this film and either of its two predecessors. For starters, the original Dinocroc and Supergator were created in laboratories fusing dinosaur DNA with that of the respective creature. However, this movie takes a different approach and instead has scientists inserting a special growth hormone into both an alligator and a crocodile--who then subsequently escape and become man-eating monsters. In essence then, it's the same basic plot but with a slightly different formula used to get things started. Likewise, as far as the overall quality of this movie is concerned, I will just say that this movie shares many of the same faults as the other two as well. The acting is substandard, the special effects weren't very good and the suspense was non-existent. In short, this movie has very little novelty to offer viewers other than the fact that instead of one monster there are two. Other than that there is nothing really new. That said, unless a person really enjoys films of this type I would advise viewers to give this one a pass. Below average.


Thank god for Roger Corman. I know everyone thinks that SyFy has cheesy movies, but that is what SyFy does AND they give young directors a chance at directing a movie.Remember those cheesy fiction films from the 50's? Remember the gorilla with a diver's helmet? Yep. Or that crab creature running the world. SyFy comes from that tradition. And of course those classic B movies have aged quite well. I suspect in 50 yrs these movies will have the same panache. But they are two close in time to Jaws, ET, and other big budget epics that make them seem sub standard, which they are, but they are cheap fun. And you get to see new actors.And, they are ripe material for the next generation of MST 3K.In Dinocroc, the "cajun" man has real potential. Anybody know Timothy Oliphant? Remember Blair Witch 2, or Hit-man? He got his start there.Where else can they go to get a million dollar budget and direct something. That means, crew, actors, music track catering,editing...they are learning their craft. Some will rise to the top as they did in the old days of the Corman studio system where he gave young directors a shot at directing, like Scorsese and many others.Now you all know the plot of this movie. How can you loose with babes in bikinis, and tourist being eaten. That is the core of Corman. Now some directors with panache may add some style to a movie with oddball humor or original twists.For example, when the tourist got off the bus and the croc was coming, a quip would be: Daughter: "Dad, what do you think when the croc gets of whiff of those tourists, what will he think".Sheriff: "Dunno, maybe...lunch is ready?"Take Tremors, for example. A really good film with Kevon Bacon and Fred ward, it is a story of a huge worm that is eating people. Very original, clever, and imaginative and fun and in broad daylight.Bacon: "I got me a plan".So you have hot babes (being eaten), tourists (being eaten), army guys (being eaten) bus drivers (being eaten) sheriff (beging eaten), and people running around screaming in this movie. Stir. Repeat. Add sauce.Some reviewers wonder how sugar cane dust can kill these monsters. Well, have you ever seen a grain elevator explosion? Dust is more potent than C4.The gator/car chase was really ridiculous tho. It is true that gators can run up to 30mph. They seldom do. It takes to much energy to move that mass and they rather lounge around and catch unwary prey.Even the fastest animals do not chase anything for very long. So enjoy those SyFy movies for giving directors a break and providing some low cost entertainment. They have to keep the doors open until the next Battleship Galactica.We love you Roger.


Like most other people, I can certainly appreciate a fun, campy B-flick but sometimes things are just too much to handle. This movie makes no attempt at ever trying to be creative or original and it isn't even really trying to be good. It's like the film-makers already gave up on things, before they even started shooting.This means that the movie allows itself to be as silly as possible and it doesn't worry about any logic or consistency. It's mostly a very random movie, that seems to be thrown together from an one hour brainstorm session, Roger Corman had with his staff.The lack of true creativity and originality with its story was truly the thing that bothered me the most. It does not only borrow heavily from other movies, it even borrows from itself. The movie is repeating itself numerous times throughout the movie and at times even recycles its own footage. 20 minutes in, the movie is already running out of steam and ideas. The most random things about this movie are its killings. There is not really any logic to it as to why Dinocroc and Supergator are killing certain people. You would think they are doing it for food but sometimes they are simply crushing people and seem to be wanting to kill as many random people as possible. And I mean some very random people. All these people literally pop up out of nowhere and you know they are only in this movie to get killed. This is not something unusual for a movie to do but this movie does this a bit too often. Not just once or twice but it happens all the time, throughout the entire movie.But it's not like there is much more logic to the story itself. Once you start thinking about it, all of the characters are making some incredibly stupid choices, that are far from likely to ever happen, in the case a real Dinocroc and Supergator would be on the loose one day.Still the thing that will caught the most attention is how incredibly bad the movie is looking. The special effects are really shocking and it's the kind of stuff basically everybody could do now days, on any random computer. Dinocroc and Supergator look like they have wandered right out of an old Playstation game and they just never look right whenever they have to interact with the environment or when they are attacking or eating random people. You won't believe how fake and horrible it's all looking! All of the actors seemed also very well aware of what mess they got themselves into. But really, it's not like they were expecting much good from this movie before they singed up for it. A glance at the title would had been enough for them to know that this wasn't going to be an award worthy movie. They all decide to go over-the-top and still have some fun with it, which was probably the best thing to do but it does take you out of the movie even more. Still David Carradine is trying to make something out of his role and he probably is the most professional thing about this entire movie.Sometimes bad its just bad. Especially when it's not even really trying.3/10 http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/


What a lousy movie! I didn't expect classic cinema, but this creature feature isn't even enjoyably cheesy. Where is Godzilla when you need him? The advent of genetic engineering has created a new genre of science fiction, so audiences have a right to expect better storytelling. Every moment of the movie is predictable and the special effects are so bad that they're embarrassing. We all know that the monsters will break loose and snack on the extras before fighting each other. Why wasn't there more fighting when they finally met? That was the only reason anyone watches such films. With modern technology, the audience deserves much better. This effort (huff, huff) deserves not only a thumbs down, but a resounding Bronx cheer.
