The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course Review


Good
Steve Irwin brings his popular Animal Planet antics to the big screen in The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course. Irwin plays a hardly fictionalized version of himself in which he tackles the wildest of outback prey. The film's poorly constructed plot centers on a crocodile that has gobbled a key piece from a U.S. spy satellite that has blown up and fallen into the Australian bush. The CIA wants it back so they send some bumbling agents down under to find it. Bad news for them, because Steve Irwin and his wife Terri think they're poachers who want the crocodile dead in order to make handbags and belts.

The plot doesn't matter (and even Crocodile Dundee took care of that). Irwin is the real show here - everything else just distracts from him. The movie is just another episode of his popular television series. While in the Outback, he gets up close and personal with spiders, lizards, crocodiles, and snakes. Speaking directly to the camera, he gives us a fairly useful education about these different animals while Terri provides additional commentary (think commercial spokesperson). It's all very interesting stuff and Irwin's humor and quick wit is enough to keep the lessons entertaining and the action scenes believable.
