Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course Review

Directed By: John Stainton.
Starring: Steve Irwin, Terri Irwin, Bindi Sue Irwin, David Wenham, Magda Szubanski.

Synopsis: Aussie adventurer Steve Irwin - a.k.a. "The Crocodile Hunter" - has avoided the death-roll and nabbed another feisty croc, hoping to save it from poachers. What Steve doesn't know is that the croc has innocently swallowed a top secret U.S. satellite beacon, and the poachers are actually American special agents sent to retrieve it!

Crikey! This is a weird little movie...

Not quite a leap for Steve Irwin and his wife Terri as they really stick to what they know for the most part...trapping, aiding Australian wildlife and giving in your face camera explanations on it. The fact that around all this there is a rather silly little story going on both adds and subtracts from the whole film.

The C.I.A. is in Australia tracking down a very important element of a satellite that just happens to have been swallowed by one huge crocodile. As Steve and Terri relocate the croc away from a ranchers land where it has been munching on the cows the C.I.A. is now tracking their movements to get what they need.

For the most part, the movie isn't really a movie at all, it is just a big screen version of the show. And Steve is never really acting so much as he is being himself on camera, hell, I bet half the dialogue is just him flying off in all sorts of directions.

Still, a couple of moments where the reality and Hollywood version do meet make for some laughs. The chase scene where Steve talks to the camera as he is being thrown around on the roof of the S.U.V. and another sequence where the C.I.A. has tracked the Irwin's globe-trotting and tied it into all sorts of political developments that gets you shaking your head as you grin at the absurdity of it all.

But really, when it comes down to it...was a full length movie necessary? No..probably not, but in that same frame of mind, it doesn't hurt either.

Fun for the kids, a little less fun for the adults. Leaving me with 2 stars but tempted to give it 3 because Steve earns it through his sheer enthusiasm.
