Dinocroc Vs. Supergator DVD Review


Hey folks, Valkor here. You want a big monster movie? No seriously, you want a BIG monster movie? A monster film where two giant beast go head to head, clawing at one another, ripping each other to shreds, tons of gore, and titties floppin everywhere? That sound like something you wanna sit through? Yea me too! Instead I got Dinocroc Vs. Supergator… *sigh*

Dinocroc vs Supergator


Dinocroc vs. Supergator involves the two beasts escaping their holding pens and rampaging this island on which it was located. The monsters were genetically created by this guy named Drake (David Carradine), who was to use this scientific breakthrough to make plants larger to help feed the planet. Enter Paul Beaumont (Corey Landis) who's on the island investigating Drake under suspicion that he's up to no good. Now as for Drake, he wants the situation contained before things go critical, so he sends in a bunch of mercs to dispatch the beast. But as fast as they arrive, they're taken out with the quickness by the monsters. Finally Drake calls in an expert who's simply known as the "The Cajun" (Rib Hillis) to put an end to the rampaging beasts that devours anyone in their path. His plan is to get the monsters together, let them them fight it out, and then take out the winner at its most vurnerable.

And that pretty much sums up this tale. Sure there's more to the story than I make mention and other characters appear, but in the end… you know what, I'll let the TOV Breakdown handle this.

The Good:

First the film wastes no time in getting started; as soon as the film begins, the monsters break out of their cages and make a feast of anyone who gets in their. Another plus is the fact that Roger Corman is the Executive Producer, but that doesn't say much since he's the master of cheese and you can't get any cheesier than this film. Actually it doesn't even rank as cheese - good or bad. And speaking of bad...

The Bad:

First up is the bad CGI; it's forgivable considering it's a low-budget made for TV piece, but still nothing to write home about. It's cool to see the monsters run and gobble people up, but ultimately unimpressive. There's no suspense, no tension, not much in terms of action; the entire film is pretty ho-hum. The whole vs. scenario doesn't kick in until the end of the film and by then you just want them both dead already so you can do something else. The plot is a mess, the acting is atrocious and don't get me started on the characters that show up only to be eaten seconds or minutes later. Like Chaz, a Hollywood actor. Did this guy really need a backstory? Why can't he be some dude in a hot tub with two sexy ladies that gets eaten? If he's not involved with the overall story, then he's just food and you shouldn't give food a name like "Chaz".

The Ugly:

The entire experience of watching this film…

Dinocroc vs Supergator


If you even for a brief moment thought about going out and buying or even renting Dinocroc Vs. Supergator, let me give you a word of advice – don't! You'd be better off watching Godzilla (1998 version). And out of TOV 5 stars, I give DinoCroc Vs. Supergator 1 star. And I think that's being generous.
