Rogue (2007)

Rogue (2007)

Rogue stands apart from similar Man vs. Humongous Beast movies. The acting is very good and the characters make sense — which is to say that their personalities are unique to each other and they fit well into the plot.  We get to see a young and unknown Sam Worthington from Terminator Salvation and John Cameron’s Avatar.  It has some of the most beautiful scenery, that is shown throughout the film and contrasts with the horrific creature that lurks beneath the surface of the clear pristine water.
Director Greg Mclean, who brought us Wolf Creek, once again recruited John Jarratt who played Mick taylor in Wolf Creek, who BTW looks like Dennis Hopper!

The plot:
While cruising the waters of Australia’s Kakadu National Park, a jaded American journalist (Michael Vartan) and a spirited outback tour guide (Radha Mitchell) must join forces to fend off a giant man-eating crocodile.  Lurking beneath the surface of a remote lake, the rogue reptile is just waiting for one of them to make a mistake and fall overboard.  Will the duo’s plan to outmaneuver the ravenous beastie work?

Some of the attacks just came out of nowhere making me jump a few times.  The ending was a bit weird to me.  I don’t want to give anything away but if you miss a one liner in the beginning of the movie then you won’t understand what happened in the final scene.  The cgi is excellent and the gore is there for those of you who love that (me!).

  All and all Rogue is a great horror movie to watch with friends on a rainy day.
