Hao and other driving passengers encounter enormous sized crocodiles and spiders and engage in a battle for survival. When Yi is captured by the giant beasts, Hao fights for his life to rescue her daughter…


Review:

“The problem with this is that even an enviable budget and a starry cast fail to hide these cliches; see the recent Skyfire for a perfect example of sound and fury signifying nothing. Crocodile Island cannot call on big-budget effects and so the story and characters have to be worth watching. Not that the effects are that bad though – they range from the passable to the dreadful.” Far East Films

” …an agreeably silly creature feature. Crocodile Island is pretty predictable and has some far fetched plot points, such as World War 2 guns that still fire perfectly after sitting around an island for 40 years. But in a film about giant creatures that’s really a minor detail.” Voices from the Balcony
