Critics Consensus

Primeval is a low-quality horror film, which due to the inane political messages does not even qualify as campy fun.

Movie Info

Veteran reporter Tim Manfrey (Dominic Purcell) lands possibly the worst assignment of his life: Travel to the African country of Burundi to locate and capture the world's largest crocodile. Dubbed "Gustave" by the villagers, the croc is said to have dined on hundreds of humans over the years. Complicating matters is an African warlord who is even more bloodthirsty than the giant reptile.

    I didnt know it was inspired by the true story of prolific serial killer before watching it. Just trusted my friends review and I was not tiny bit of dissapointed

    Only saw this movie once and it instantly became a favorite. I like that it's inspired by true events, and that it's very exciting and suspenseful, but what I REALLY like about it is that not only is there a monster in the form a gigantic croc they're after, but the more they delve into the jungle, they perhaps find an even greater danger in the form of a civil war among their part of the country. The croc and the war among people presents double the punch and excitement, instead of just choosing to be a Lake Placid ripoff.

    Fairly successful big croc movie. It follows generic plotlines via generic chracters, but has enough charm to pull it off. Orlando Jones is a great casting choice. His wit elevates the film somewhat, with lines like "This crocs like OJ Simpson. His biggest mistake was killing a white woman". The films biggest fault is setting it's sights too high as it becomes half big croc movie, half social commentary on the political climate in impoverished African countries. These two ideas don't go together that well. Blood Diamond and Lake Placid? Exactly. Lots to enjoy and a decent CGI crocodilian.

    I was mad at Orlando Jones in this movie. You're in a horror movie! You're the ONLY black guy in the group! RUN!!!
