Just roll with it.

A failed hijack attempt by a group of armed criminals goes horribly wrong, causing the plane to crash into a crocodile infested South American swamp. A small handful of crew and passengers crawl from the wreckage, but are horrified to discover that several of the hijackers have also survived the disaster. Forced at gunpoint to carry the bad guys' luggage (which is stuffed full of stolen cash), the group trudge through the murky waters, all the while stalked by a huge hungry reptile. Meanwhile, Zach (Chuck Walczak), boyfriend of pretty stewardess survivor Mia (Heidi Lenhart), hires local tracker Roland (Martin Kove) to help him find his woman.

After the massive disappointment that was Tobe Hooper's Crocodile, I really wasn't expecting much (if anything) from a sequel, especially after reading some of the disparaging comments here on IMDb; but knock me down with a rubber reptile and call me Steve Irwin if Death Roll didn't prove to be the most fun I've had with a low-budget B-movie creature feature in a long while.

Despite nearly all of the accusations fired at this film by its naysayers being absolutely true (the story IS highly derivative, the characters ARE extremely clichéd, and the killer croc itself IS a marvel of VERY manky CGI and pathetic model-making), I just couldn't help but have a total blast.

What makes Crocodile 2 so surprisingly watchable is that even though director Gary Jones knows damn well that he's working on another predictable, cheesy and formulaic film destined for the bottom shelf at Blockbusters, he still gives it everything he has (Hooper's film, on the other hand, felt like the director was just going through the motions).

Jones's enthusiastic and unpretentious approach is mirrored by his cast, who play their preposterous one-dimensional roles to the hilt, and the result is a silly, funny (perhaps unintentionally, perhaps knowingly), scary, and ultimately hugely enjoyable monster movie that offers impeccably timed jump scares, several gory deaths, a cartoonish and impossibly evil head villain (whose vocabulary is littered with unimaginative expletives), a David Hess-alike creepy henchman, a truly awful exploding helicopter model, a denouement that was telegraphed from the very beginning, and the obligatory daft pre-credits 'shock' sequence that finally allows us blokes a better look at the very sexy Lenhart (dont get too excited, though: she's only in a bikini!).

It might seem like a ridiculously high rating for such a corny film, but I give Crocodile 2: Death Roll a whopping 8/10.

Better than the first movie...

With the limited impact the first "Crocodile" movie had and its limitations in terms of enjoyment and entertainment, then it was somewhat of a gamble to sit down and watch "Crocodile 2: Death Swamp".

Still, I have done so. And I must admit, that while "Crocodile 2: Death Swamp" by no means is a masterpiece, then it definitely turned out to be slightly more enjoyable than the first movie. Why? Well, because they upped their game significantly on the special effects department, and for the most parts throughout the entire movie, the crocodile was realistic and actually turned out quite well in favor of the movie.

As for the storyline in "Crocodile 2: Death Swamp", well... Let's just say it is subpar to the storyline in the first movie. The storyline, plot and script in this sequel was more generic and predictable, to the point where the storyline itself was an abomination.

The characters in the movie were even worse than in the first movie, especially the bad guys. Seriously? They were just laughable and seemed like something taken out of a very bad comic book.

The acting in the movie was adequate, taking into consideration that the actors and actresses had next to nothing to work with in terms of a proper script, storyline and plot.

What sets "Crocodile 2: Death Swamp" aside from the first "Crocodile" movie was the special effects which really lifted the movie up to a higher level and made it all the more enjoyable to sit through. Sure, this is the type of movie where you just dislodge your brain, sit back and enjoy the ride.

What Strange Names

!!!!! SPOILERS !!!!!

There`s two things that guarantee you`re going be watching a really bad movie . One is the name Victor Salva appearing in the credits and the other is the movie starting off in a way that seems to go against the movie`s title . Take CROCODILE 2 : DEATH SWAMP , with a title like that you`d expect either a crocodile or a swamp in the opening hook wouldn`t you ? Well you`d be wrong because this film starts with a bank robbery . But it`s not just any bank , no siree , it`s a bank where all the staff and customers are named Motherf***er as in " Hand over he money Motherf***er , on the ground Motherf***er , don`t look at me Motherf***er " . One thing that puzzled me about the robbers - Apart from them knowing everyone was named Motherf***er - was that they had a broad range of accents , but it`s suggested they`re in a band . Or something . Whatever . So the robbers ( And what a great name for a band ) decide to go on tour and hijack a plane which is in extremely poor taste . Before September 11 2001 it was only bad movies that featured people hijacking planes , post 9/11 there`s something offensive about this plot line . Oh and strangely all the passengers and crew in this aircraft are also called Motherf***er . Can someone in the States send me a private message and tell me how common the name Motherf***er is ? because that seems to be the only name the characters in this film are called . After the plane crashes ( Hope I didn`t spoil any plot twists there ) the survivors start getting eaten one by one by a crocodile and guess what its name is ? That`s right it`s called Motherf***er too . You really have to worry about the screenwriters naming every single character - Human or otherwise - with the exact same name .

I do have one good thing to say about CROCODILE 2 : DEATH SWAMP and that is Heidi Lenhart looks great in a bikini

One Shocking Trivia Point : The crocodile realization in this film was achieved via a combination of CGI and a rubber dummy . I`m sure no one noticed this untill I pointed it out
