Primeval walks a fine line between action, humor, and having half a conscience.

Solidly well-told and breathtakingly shot.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Though the film's raison d'etre is the big croc, veteran genre screenwritering team John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris pin some boldly provocative thoughts on motor-mouthed Steven Johnson's sleeve.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

The CGI wonks here have created a beaut ... Watching him clumsily gallumpf through the tall grass at top speed in search of vittles is worth a few bucks, at least.

Veteran TV director Michael Katleman has crafted a perfectly serviceable -- and scary -- B-movie.

Director Michael Katleman, making his bigscreen debut after a couple decades' TV work, keeps the pacing tight, the acting straight-faced and the laughs mostly intentional (though Jones' one-liners occasionally fall flat).

Has one of the most misleading ad campaigns in recent memory, but works on a 'popcorn' level. Wait to rent it.

It's a pretty tasty bit of cinematic junk food.

Georgia Straight

Primeval is one of crummiest killer-beast flicks of all time. It actually makes the B.C.-shot giant-croc debacle Lake Placid look half-decent, but it sure the hell wasn't.

Primeval is a slick-looking movie that lacks the gritty goodness of old-fashioned exploitation and is too silly to take seriously as a mainstream thriller.

...a thoroughly awful, downright irritating piece of work...

The possibility of commentary is raised but it ultimately is glossed over with cliches and very little substance.

Laced with pseudoserious undertones, the movie makes "Anaconda" look like a modern-day classic.

Apollo Guide

Less than the sum of its parts. There are too many small errors and lost opportunities, and it's just not scary. Even a B movie can't succeed when that's the case.

Movie Metropolis

The subplot turns what might have been a fascinating true-life adventure into a lurid, stereotypical melodrama.

As it tries to be two things at once -- a gory monster movie and a dramatic social commentary -- what it mostly succeeds at is being dull and repetitive.

It's rough going when our heroes have us longing for the complexity of the riverboat crew from 'Anaconda.'
