Audience Reviews for Il fiume del grande caimano (The Big Alligator River) (The Great Alligator)

If you can get past the hilarious usage of plastic toys and models, The Big Alligator River is a very effective nature run-amok, Italian exploitation film. A big city photographer and black model are flow in to a exclusive resort built deep in the African jungles. Things are going at first; even the tribes people are very friendly and helpful, until a large Alligator arises and starts eating people. Naturally, the tribe thinks its a fearsome God and they place blame on the westerners for bringing it out, so thinks become very difficult for everyone. It's up the photographer and former bond girl Barbara Back to try and survive the murderous Alligator and tribes people. I'm not sure which one kills the most people, but a ton of people die in this film, that's for sure. The story and filmmaking is actually pretty decent and, like I said, if you can get past some of the overly fake scenes, this is a good movie.

(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] This is a film strictly for fans of Italian exploitation flicks. I found this to be sort of fun and I liked that it didn't go as far as some others I've seen. Like I said, strictly for fans of this type of stuff not your average movie goer.
