I was looking for reason to watch this movie again, and you just gave it to me. I caught the DVD and found it simply okay, that something was missing. In retrospect, I felt that way about my first viewing of "Wolf Creek", and both were, perhaps significantly, viewing experiences highly interrupted by my fellow viewers. Time to go back on the queue list.

I don't think it's as good as Wolf Creek, in part because I think a killer croc premise is more limiting in terms of how you can establish tension (gotta be in the water, gotta be stranded, etc.). But it seems thematically consistent with (if not identical to) Mclean's last film, and avoids any of the simplistic cheesiness usually inherent to such genre films...
