    This would be a PERFECT MST3K movie. The dialogue, story, and script are all corny and derivative, but it's never boring. The actual gator scenes are a bunch of fun; opening trainer attack, eating the man in the alley, terrorizing the yuppie party, the speed boat jumping the gator's back before exploding. Everything else is terrible, but hey…I come to Alligator for the alligator, and it delivers in that area.

    Among the better water creature features that emerged in Spielberg's wake—and written by the same pen as behind the best of those monster movie knock offs, Joe Dante's PIRANHA—the movie tries to up the stakes with an even stronger set of jaws than JAWS while featuring an even more temperamental and less believable animatronic antagonist, though really it's tough-yet-tender Robert Forster who gives these sewer proceedings enough depth to make what little hair he has stand on end.

    Fun and smarter-than-it-should-be creature feature with a screenplay by none other than John Sayles.

    This movie is more run to watch than it has a right to be. Cheesy and Grade-B, but this is a shining example of why B-Movies are so darn fun to watch!

    Plays out like Godzilla (1954) but with an alligator instead. The effects and creature work are outdated but the movie is short, sweet and to the point.

    A rather bland and dated creature feature. While the overall concept is actually quite intriguing the poor acting and dated effects make this one tough to watch. Some hard core fans of the genre may enjoy this but everyone else will come away disappointed.
