Heartstopping shocks and suspense that is almost umbearable. Not a complicated story, but it doesn't need to be. A simple tale of survival that delivers the thrills. This is the movie that THE SHALLOWS wanted to be. That film was also directed by this film's director Alexandre Aja, but THE SHALLOWS was terminally stupid. Aja gets it right this time.
very good suspense thriller
I liked this movie, It made me jump a few times well done for an animal horror movie. Not for kids though.
This movie was actually scarier than a lot of the recent scary movies I've seen... Crawl grabs your attention through out the movie unlike Anne bell comes home.. Which started out very boring and it was all over the place... Crawl was scary and freaky...
Predictable. Not much of a story.
I thought this movie was going to be about "monsters," but boy was I surprised!! Huge alligators!!! My shoes a hole in the carpet at the theater!!Stomping my feet during the entire movie. Other people said they were doing the same. Scared the bejesus out of me. Throughly enjoyed it!!!
It was better then I expected kept you on the edge of your seat
I really enjoyed this movie. Having a daughter about her age, I could only imagine how this movies father felt. That is what gave it the edge for me. Truly terrifying, also realizing that this was something that could possibly happen, also made it more real. Worth the money for this summer movie. Just be careful that your popcorn doesn't jump out of the bag and into your face. Yes, there are a few shocks.
Good cg work. Realistic storm action. Female lead does a good job at keeping us interested. But a lame script and direction sinks this movie into boredom. Obviously spent too much on the exciting storm set and ran out of money for a script. Sad waste of money.
Action packed and creative horror film. I have been through hurricanes myself, and really liked the film's look and feel.. Made me feel like i was there. Very exciting.
Sorry folks. This was a complete dud. Watching a young girl and her father crawl around in a house basement full of alligators was a waste of time.
Great horror film with scary scenes when the gators begin to attack! If you want to be scared. See this film!
Very interesting movie and due to the fact of a similar situation like hurricane Katrina alligators got Zeus because of storm surge and into and buildings
It was really good pertaining to the dialogue and having its jump scares and maybe it’s only because I’m afraid of alligators, but I really liked it, It’s just like Lake placid mixed with Sharknado but without the flying sharks/gators.
What a waste of my time. I walked out because I could not take the stupidity of it all. I guess the other viewers must of seen a different version then I did!
Fun summertime movie. Scary, but more like Jurassic Park or Jaws type scary, not trippy horror film scary. Some gore as you'd expect, but the film makers didn't dwell on doing extended drawn-out sequences of people getting attacked. Bloody for sure (you get the point of what's happening), but not gratuitous. I was actually a bit surprised at this given how the movie's director put so much violence and gore in his previous movies. As with other movies of this genre, there are a few points where you say to yourself "wait a minute...", but as long as you overlook the minor flaws you should have a good time.
Really scary, good, jaw dropping.....like the jaws of alligators! If you like horror sci fi, it's good. Not for kids or weak hearted.
Great horror film without gratuitous violence. Just a daughter and a father trying to survive a hurricane and an onslaught of voracious alligators. Sam Raiimi made it work! Original, well acted and directed! Thrilling and captivating. Ignore the negative review below. Think "Jaws" on steroids! 5 f**king stars all the way
Loved it, going for a 2nd viewing with my wife tomorrow. Very entertaining and I really liked the characters. And of course it won't win any academy awards. But the really good movies never do.
It was one of the best if it’s kind. Kept you on the edge of your seat. Action from start to finish.
Couldn't wait. For it to get OVER!,
Not a bad flick for some creepy crawly thrills . It uses every fear to make you jump except maybe heights ,midgets and antique furniture . It wont be winning an Academy award anytime soon but it's a good popcorn flick .
Really good movie.
Very entertaining, especially the last hour!
