This being a movie I wouldn't pay to see, I was pretty psyched to see that Crawl is now on Amazon Prime so I gave it a try last night...OMG...why did I enjoy that SO much?!
I essentially agree with everything in all the previous posts: the good, the bad and the ugly. The movie does not lag at any time, so it keeps you watching but, Holy F_ck, the bad decisions and ridiculous premise is hard to get over. The father is indestructible! BTW, who designs a house with a 24" drain out of a crawl space? And being on the swamp, wouldn't they be on a slab or stilts?
But I still enjoyed the shit out of it and give it a recommend if you need an escape for 90 minutes. The large gin and tonic certainly helped too.
I watched this last week, and was thrilled it was on Amazon Prime, as I really wanted to see it. It appeared to be my kind of movie, as I like creature features and also like what Alexandre Aja has done.
I can't say I really loved it, barely even really liked it, as things just seemed a little too far fetched and heavy handed the whole "apex predator" thing involving our lead and her swimming.
I also didn't buy the whole crawl space thing, and definitely thought the level of damage both Kellers took was way over the top.
The gators looked great. The violence was pretty well done. The tension and terror were there.
I had trouble really caring all that much about the characters, though. Something was missing in the setup to create characters that we cared about.
