Mega Crocodile is another CGI driven monster movie. Unfortunately, the effects here are all bad. The crocodiles actually look like somebody animated those rubber ones you get at the dollar store. The man-eating plants are positively cartoonish. It looks like something you would have seen om basic cable around the turn of the millennium.
Mega Crocodile is actually entertaining in an odd sort of way. With subtitles that are stilted and full of typos, it’s one of those films that’s just so messed up that it’s fun. Mega Crocodile was produced by Youku, which seems to be a cross between Netflix and YouTube. And they’ve put it up for free on their YouTube channel.
