YMMV / Crocodile 2: Death Swamp

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Max is the leader of a gang of trigger-happy bank robbers. After robbing a bank and killing several police officers, Max and his gang board a plane to flee to Mexico. When the pilot is forced to deviate from the flight path, Max and his minions hijack the plane, inadvertently crashing it and killing most of the passengers in the process. Once everyone has recovered, Max forces the survivors to haul his suitcases of money to his destination or else he'll kill them all. When a crocodile starts killing the survivors one by one, Max continues to put the survivors and even his own gang in harm's way, not caring in the slightest as more of them perish. After Sol becomes fed up with Max's schemes and tries to leave, Max shoots him In the Back and leaves him to die. Even with a crocodile terrorizing the survivors, Max shows that he's an even bigger threat than the actual monster.

  • Ham and Cheese: Martin Kove is fully aware of what kind of film he's in, and does not care. He plays the experienced badass hunter character flawlessly and steals nearly every scene he's in whenever he opens his mouth.
  • Narm: As expected from a monster B-movie.
    • The sheer amount of swearing from the antagonists is more childish and humorous than it is intimidating.
    • "Guns don't kill people. People kill people."
  • So Bad, It's Good: The acting isn't great, the special effects are noticeably dated, the characters aren't compelling, and the plot is generic. Nevertheless, that doesn't prevent the movie from being good, dumb fun, and it's still thoroughly entertaining for somehow mashing a "Die Hard" on an X plot with a cliché monster-movie plot together almost perfectly.

How well does it match the trope?
