Critic reviews for Crocodile

Ultimately, it's all a little too predictable, the intersection of technology with flawed humanity bringing about an expected response. Though there's a lot to enjoy, this is definitely one of Black Mirror's lesser episodes.

The lead of "Crocodile" is too nakedly evil, too lacking in redeeming features, to make that idea remotely compelling.

The award for most nightmarish goes to "Crocodile," a chill-inducing psychological carnage-fest filmed in the style of Scandinavian noir that I would happily unsee, if such a nefarious technology existed, thank you very much.

A descent into hell that contrasts with the freezing cold of the Icelandic landscapes in which this remarkable episode of the fourth season was filmed. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sleek and skeletal.

Most of "Crocodile" plays out like a slow-motion nightmare, where you can see the next beat coming just before it happens, and then have to sit and watch in horror as it does. It's a good match for director John Hillcoat.
