July 22, 2019
For viewers seeking summertime relief from the intellectual burden of superhero movies, there's this accidentally funny and numbingly literal action thriller.
July 19, 2019
Though not a patch on Lewis Teague's charming Alligator, a steady dose of more action-thrillers like this may help send comic-book carcinoma into remission.
July 13, 2019
Crawl is not exactly an inventive film. But it doesn't have to be. It delivers on what it promises, and not many big-studio movies this year can claim the same.
July 13, 2019
It's toothless despite its alligator antagonists, not least because it never bothers linking its premise - a category 5 hurricane in Florida that causes a flood - to the existential threat hastening such extreme weather events in the first place.
July 13, 2019
Crawl would look pretty good in just about any season. In this one it positively glows.
July 13, 2019
Like the apex predators slithering at the center of it all, it gets the job done once it lets is more brutal, primal instincts take over.
August 20, 2019
As a mindless summer horror diversion, Crawl is watchable if rarely all that thrilling. The movie's far from toothless, yet often substitutes easy scares for any real substance, and suffers for that.
August 19, 2019
While the dialogue may clunk and there's somehow always time for a bit more daddy-daughter bonding, Crawl's claustrophobic thrills and steady stream of jump scares are right in his wheelhouse.
August 19, 2019
Cheesy dialogue apart, the result is surprisingly touching.
August 18, 2019
Crawl is incredibly tense and an effective exercise in genre, succeeding in direction and staging - whereas, failing on a big level with emotion and performances.

It's not remarkable by any means, but it isn't the worst alligator film out there.

An entertaining film with the structure of a vide game that turns in some great climactic moments, but not much else. [Full Review in Spanish]

You felt isolated, with so few characters...it's not worth going to the late night movie, it was just alright.
August 9, 2019
Manages to generate suspense and fear that's what anyone wants to feel with this type of film. [Full review in Spanish]
August 9, 2019
One of the most effective and entertaining films in Alexandre Aja's filmography. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 9, 2019
The story is full of clichés, ordinary places, and its lack of credibility provokes laughter in certain scenes... It is nevertheless an entertaining movie. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 8, 2019
Depicting an onscreen world refreshingly free of morals, it's only Crawl's clever that survive.
August 8, 2019
The film does its job capably and efficiently, mixing wet emotion with squishy viscera, and even chewier scene-stealing by a pack of hungry gators who are having a gay old time ripping folk into bite-size chunks and serving them up like sashimi.
