When something so vital as this fails to hold on to its promises, the drive or the dive that makes these characters keep jumping or sacrificing or saving is like an empty gun fired across the room for attention.

Crawl, which I honestly expected just to be a cliche-filled silly horror movie, joins this last group, and it's on par with Long Shot as the best surprise of 2019, until now.

What a waste of time.

If you want to deliver an entertaining and captivating story, you have to write an enthralling screenplay.

It had some solid jokes, decent gore, great jump-scares and intense sequences.

The actors all did fine, the main actress stood out above the rest and the dog also made the movie more enjoyable.

Suspenseful, claustrophobic sequences, straightforward plot, and set in (mostly) just one location.

But saying all this, I was admittedly glued to the movie (except for the boring pathetic father-daughter moments where you're supposed to have a little bit more "storyline" to a movie than just a few crocs eating people).

Leading actress did a very good job, scenes very intense and Barry Pepper as supporting actor was good...

Entertaining .

If you are looking for an entertaining movie for a hour and a half then go watch it.

You can even call it exciting at times.

I went to see this movie out of boredom.


Barry Pepper is the stand-out performer here even if he has limited screen-time - annoyingly Kaya Scodelario's character is pretty bland, not a good thing when she's the main character, she can actually come off as pretty unlikable at times.

(The budget was a mere 13.5 million) The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.

It was suspenseful and intense throughout!!

Entire film full of intense action and scary scene!

3 times gator got her, in last he even perform death roll on her and she still was able to swim like nothing happen.

Suspenseful and entertaining in equal measure.

Watched this with my friend and we both enjoyed it very much!

Crawl is an intense, exciting, and bloody for a disaster horror film that might as well be the Jaws version movie about alligators.

Annoying, awful, but if you are bored watchable .

Well worth a watch, enjoyable cinema.

Meantime, this atmospheric, white-knuckled, nail-biting yarn will keep you just as alert, poised on the edge of your seat, as you wait for the next gator strike.

Crawl is at times entertaining and very efficent at building up tension.

Which he builds the intense suspense throughout from the jump scares.

An entertaining B-movie you want, an entertaining B-movie you get!

A gripping and thrilling film, very fast paced like the Gators, at least they were realistic which is more than I can say for some films.

Terribly cliché lines as usual, tough daddy giving the daughter pep talks, all the stupid choices people couldn't possibly make (which makes you question if Americans are actually that slow), all the impossible scenarios like outswimming those beasts and plastic banana and palm trees.

Director Alexandre Aja has given us a pulse-pounding, edge of the seat, immersive & thrilling experience, that makes you feel that you are trapped in that house with Haley & the alligators.

I probably will not watch this movie again, however it was entertaining because I saw it with a few friends and we laughed the entire time.

you'll likely feel this movie is a formulaic repeat.

Mindblowing CGI / Boring writing .

but in some part, especially on act 1 its so boring, and the ending its damnfully flat.

Suspenseful and well made.

As entertaining as it is to watch, it's hardly believable they're in the shape they're in when all is said and done.

The daughter and dad bonding here is top notch, the action is precise and entertaining, as I said the atmosphere is fantastic, overall it's definitely good overall.

It builds up suspense and also better than many repetitive scares .

Very suspenseful, not cheesy, well done, zero superheros.

Crawl may manage to provoke some frightening scenes and tension without, but the film is fundamentally flawed as a film itself, lacking a true compelling story or anything to care about other than not getting eaten.

I highly recommend it.

Intense realistic disaster monsters flick, well acted too.

I knew it would be an entertaining little popcorn flick, but quickly found myself on the edge of my seat, kicking my feet up (because don't you know that's how they get you) and my heart pounding.

My ultimate suggestion: save your money and wait until this gets on a streaming service instead.

Crawl grabbed the viewers attention as soon as it begins and keeps you on the edge of the seat until the very end.

Nevertheless, Crawl is a widely entertaining film from beginning to end and ranks as one of the best creature features in recent memory.

Actually entertaining .

The main thing is that the movie is entertaining and exciting to watch.

Alexandre Aja, who directed Don't Breathe a while ago, a movie that was incredibly claustrophobic, tautly directed and well acted, although did have a slightly convoluted villain and build a bit too much for a weird sequel, but great set of performances and screenplay to keep it exciting.

Predictable and clear in where it got its inspiration from, but enjoyably entertaining nonetheless.

Crawling on the edge of their seats!!

But it is definitely entertaining and enjoyable for what it turned out to be.

Anyway, this is an exciting flick with a few scares and some new ideas, and it will definitely entertain you, though I am a bit sorry I spent money renting it.

Like all stomach-churning chillers, "Crawl" knows when to spring unexpected jump scares on audiences.

This was the most boring movie I've seen in a long time.

But the most entertaining use of the house was with the bathroom where the glass in the shower was used very cleverly to trap the alligator.

This movie is just stunning.


Was well worth the watch very tence on edge through it all when you think their safe then .....

Crawl had high expectations on this, it was not what it was, it wasnt what i predicted to be, money was invested in it, i dont know how did this gross that much, yea its the natural disaster but those crocodiles that were added made the movie boring really, till the end of the movie i was waiting for something surprising to happen but it didnt, i was not amazed at all with what was happening, the atmosphere of it was really quiet and cold, the acting was well done and so is the cinematography but it really lacked in script, many illogical scenes, i didnt feel suspenseful where has suspense gone from this movie, the ending was cutted off according to me, and the message from it wasnt something new, at last i wont recommend it to anyone, 5/10⭐

Intense, fast paced, and just plain fun.

Really enjoyable.

A slow start story with a hardship of competitive swimming.

I like the gore, blood and thrilling effect that the movie brings.

I saw this in the theater and was on the edge of my the entire time.

fast paced I was waiting for a happy after disaster father daughter moment.

The ending reminded me of pet sematary, a very quick and fast phased ending to a slow phased movie.

I really enjoyed it!

It's fun and entertaining.

I went into this film with an open mind and overall I found myself invested in their efforts and gripping in to my arm rests.

The filmmakers go out of their way to waste your time.

Overall pretty good summer horror movie, sure it has a few mistakes here and there but overall enjoyable.

I'm not gonna lie, this was a solid movie, I really enjoyed it.

The plot is pretty predictable.

For a B-movie, the visual effects are quite compelling.

In the end, Crawl proves to have an interesting concept, and at times can be exciting, but there's nothing quite else that makes it truly remarkable, or for that matter, truly enjoyable.

Nothing new, bad acting, characters without character, illogical as hell, boring set/location, no story, no development, no scare, no nothing.

I would have enjoyed it even more if it was just a bit longer.

If you're wanting an engaging horror natural disaster thriller, then this film falls a bit short.

Pointless supporting actors/extras who we know are gunna die are on screen for a few mins then get gobbled up.

I was bored and had nothing to watch on tv...

You are literally watching nothing happen besides people splashing around in the water.

That's the gist of the white-knuckled yet predictable and farcical, Crawl.

Overall, it was a decent movie that is worth watching if you like being kept on the edge of your seat.

Enjoyable watch .

Dont waste your time or money worst hour and a bit of my life

What starts as a fairly routine creature flick eventually becomes a film that's far more entertaining and suspenseful than it has any right to be.

Very Intense!.

I loved how the film was pretty much confines to just one house but they found new ways to find the film entertaining and to keep you interested.

Don't waste your time .

It is ridiculous but it is suspenseful.

A bore movie.

Good acting, decent script, simple plot and lots of gator gore bring this movie to a fun and exciting finish.

I didn't felt any tension or suspense and at certain point in the end i got bored, even though the film is 87 minutes long - it felt far too long than it needed to be.

The cgi effects were great intense.

It was just too predictable for me.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Solid acting, some beautifully evinced special effects, and alligators that are plenty realistic enough to make me jumpy, all serve a well-written, genuinely suspenseful movie.

Extremely boring and ridiculous.

It is truly shockingly suspenseful, amazing acting and like most of the comments on here say.

This movie is an entertaining way to spend 90 minutes.

Yet, they've all been entertaining in their own (brutal and frightening) right.

than their is the dumb bimbo daughter who decides " OH HO HUM" im just going to drive 2 to 3 hours straight into the heart of a category 5 hurricane...

Besides being super predictable, the writing of this movie is very lazy.

You'll be gripping into your arm rests.

This one was quite entertaining with a twist.

(SPOILERS AHEAD) While this story is predictable and too coincidental for its main characters (Haley being a fast swimmer, her father being a tools man), there are still some thrilling moments - and of course, plenty of blood and jump scares.

It's not original, but still, for it's genre, it's enjoyable enough.

Exciting, intense, fast-paced.

It may be far fetched but hey, it's a movie and it's very entertaining.

Haley; if you get dragged by an alligator you're pretty much dead already.

Worst movie of the year.

Predictable at best .

Perfect summer, enjoyable, popcorn film .

The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.

Crawl surprised me at how tense,entertaining and terrifying it was.

Enjoyable with great special effects.

It also had some pretty gruesome deaths which made it entertaining.

But overall it is a well made movie and is worth the watch.

It's all a bit repetitive and doesn't provide much in the way of constant tension or excitement.

It wastes no time telling a concise story that leads into the action/horror, which keeps you on the edge of your seat the remaining 95% of the movie.

None other than Alexandre Aja ("The Hills have Eyes", "Horns") traveled down to the Sunshine State for "Crawl"; - a derivative but nevertheless intense and nail-biting creature feature in which a couple of potent alligators complicate an already tough category-5 hurricane even more!

I have seen better intense dog bites of that magnitude ....

It is a little predictable but worth the watch.

Storyline was entertaining.

On the edge of my seat until the very end, which came quickly because the time flew by!!!!

The movie was fast paced and bloody fun.

it's not supposed to be real, it's supposed to be entertaining.

Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.

This movie is so entertaining if you don't think too much about the situations or events and just try to enjoy it.

Occasionally some pointless characters shows up and dies immediately because they're are also dumb.

While the plot was a little bit silly, the film was action packed and exciting at every turn.

This is boring rediculous trash.

From tense moments to great character building, Crawl cements itself as an enjoyable horror flick that I would definitely re-watch and highly recommend.

The entire house is not only used, but the gators get access too, and it makes for some very entertaining and thrilling scenes.

Nevertheless, it is entertaining even if it is ridiculous.

If you are looking for a simple, fun and entertaining thrill ride, this is for you.

Super boring and unentertaining.

It's simply shot with a minimum cast and it still manages to put you on the edge and tell a solid story.

I find a lot of real-life here against "Joker" (i know, I'm boring).

It also helps that the film is consistently thrilling, putting you on the edge of your seat near the entire film.

Unexpected and entertaining .

The movie is fast paced and pressure filled!

Yes some of it seems unrealistic to happen but still exciting.

Completely captivating and suspenseful the whole time, and time went by fast.

Otherall this movie is predictable.

Pretty predictable.

From cheesy looking performances to special effects straight out an 80's film, the only hope for Crawl was for it to have the unexpected reception of films like 47 Meters Down or The Shallows, both were surprising hits.

The pacing is excellent, and the ending is good even if a bit predictable.

Predictable, cliche driven .

Suspenseful Little Horror Flick .

Directed by Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension), the setup is quick, the execution is slick, and Aja does well to keep things taut, gripping & nail-biting once the main plot kicks into action.


Add alligators who want nothing more than meat, it gets more thrilling and suspenseful.

Fast paced never falls off .

This movie is a total waste of time.

But that said, this movie is entertaining if you throw logic out the window.

Fairly boring .

Highly Entertaining Summer Popcorn Muncher.

I mean, sure, there are a couple of rare moments of extreme survival, where we might think "he/she should be dead", but it's such a fun and entertaining time at the theater that we can let go of one or two over-the-top scenes.

The 5 stars is for Kaya, the movie is ok as far as croc movies go, and most of it even being far fetched is still entertaining.....

Still, its grounded tone, convincing visuals and compelling central performances keep it from feeling silly.

I enjoyed it so much from the start to end!

Intense, Suspenseful and Gory .

Other humans just die so easy but the father and his daughter survive life threatening injuries and on top of that swim like nothing happened lol.

But well this movie fails in what many movies and series fail favoritism to the protagonists, with this I mean that they manage to survive successfully without any ability especially to situations that secondary characters failed to survive for example if you saw the movie you will have Noticed how crocodiles brutally devour the secondary and when one of the crocodiles manages to bite a protagonist this simply waits for the protagonist to be released, as I said we saw how that crocodile brutally ate the others and the protagonist it is simply bitten in very convenient parts to which it can survive, but that is all, we do not see those aggressive crocodiles that we saw previously, or we also have situations in which they manage to save themselves from ridiculously crocodiles and everything else is More of the same, and to tell you the truth, that's all I have to say about Crawl, it's not like the mu movie What to talk about, in conclusion this is a movie with characters with some personality, a simple and repetitive plot, passable special effects, in a nutshell it is 5/10 meh.

Watch that instead, its a lot more engaging.

Definitely watchable and entertaining.

It's really intense, scary, and overall fun.

Has you at the edge of your seat the whole time.. VERY suspenseful and terrifying!

Intense, suspenseful, action packed!!.

But seriously, don't waste your time.

Very unreasonable, ridiculous and very boring.

Towards the end of the film, some of the action scenes start to get repetitive.

Ridiculously good and jaw gripping, no pun intended.

Thrilling and exciting.

Nothing happened to the hand or leg after biting by a giant crocodile.

Don't waste your time .

Overall, a part from a few plot holes it was worth the watch and delivered quite well the hunter/hunted scenario.

Very intense suspense thriller!

But the movie is not so terrible, in fact, the characters have some personality and as predictable as the movie manages to entertain you once in a while about the conversations of the protagonists about their personal life or see how the crocodiles devour brutally to the secondary characters.

This, along with often bad CGI and uninteresting characters, holds the movie back from being more than just another mediocre monster flick.

Fortunately "Crawl" has a fine balance between the realistic and the stupid, all in all it was damn entertaining from start to finish.

If you were expecting GatorNado.. you are in luck, because every dumb monster movie cliche of the past decade is nowhere to be found here.

On the plus side, there are some moments of genuine tension, Kaya Scodelario is pretty solid, she can pulls off the American accent effortlessly and makes some of the weaker, predictable dialogue work for her.

It was entertaining to watch.

Boring version of sharknado in a basement .

Thrilling exciting experience .

Intense, Scary, Solid Movie .

Most of the times it was easily predictable what was gonna happen.

Overall, the movie is surprisingly entertaining.

The first 25 minutes are quite boring to me, and the film is too dark to see what is going on in the opening basement scenes.

Waste of money the 1950 creature from the black lagoon was more believable

With compelling leads and a simple concept, Alexandre Aja delivers an entertaining, suspenseful, claustrophobic, and technically creative movie.

Many critics called this an entertaining albeit farfetched movie.

The entire film was incredibly suspenseful, nail-biting and knows what it wants to be.

A waste of time.! Very predictable, lock of common sense.

Ever since it exploded in the mid-late 90's, I always found them to be more gaudy and exploitative than legitimately compelling.

For me the dialog and main formula of the movie was tedious and cheesy.

Content (sex, language, & violence): No sex, a few instances of harder curse words, but not for shock value, and violence is a bit intense though mostly quick from alligator attacks and people defending themselves against them.

This is by far one of the most suspenseful movies I've watched in a while.

Man vs nature is always an exciting premise and this movie doesn't fail in that sense.

Nonetheless, the film is enjoyable with great special effects, go watch it now!

There are plenty of moments through this film that gets really intense with a few jump scare moment, some being so intense as you have no idea where the alligators are under the water, this gives the film a frightening and intense nature.

It has a decent story, the action and intense direction with the music score.


In fact one of the few problems I had with the movie (which isn't really a problem at all when you think about it) is that because the movie is so intense throughout, it struggles to raise the stakes for the final sequence.

Fun and entertaining .

Upon arriving at his apartment, it's empty except for his dog.

This atmospheric, white-knuckled, nail-biting yarn will keep you just as paranoid, poised on the edge of your seat, while you wait for the next gator strike.

I found the film to be really enjoyable.

It was intense, claustrophobic, filthy, bloody and wet.

Overall this is a good movie, it is just short and simple but still good and enjoyable.

And they swim slower than humans under water.

The movie is surprisingly gory, with enough thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat!

Great effects and action packed.

Summation Pros: strong, connected acting (actors work well together), believable story that's easy to follow, keeps the drama at a lowCons: some cliches, bland small rolesVerdict: a pleasant surprise that'll have you gripping your seat throughout the movie

A lame backstory with the girl being a top swimmer so she can out-swim a gang of patrolling alligators and the father and daughter's pathetic sentimental conversations in between their boring as hell attempts to evade the naughty alligators.

We also get some eye rolling decisions made by our characters, mostly Haley, who goes on to do typically cliche things that get people injured or killed, like following the scary noise.

Must see for anybody who loves a side order of adrenaline and terror with their thrillers.

However, on a Sunday afternoon, bored out of my mind, I decided to give this movie a look.

Of course this is to make the movie exciting, you're supposed to be scared for what will happen to the characters next.

Definitely on the edge of your seat many of times.

The two main characters were both enjoyable to watch and I felt the chemistry between the actors.

Very intense.

You want to see a great movie and sit on the edge of your seat...

Stressful and entertaining at will .

Though critics raved for this film I disliked it very much due to its very slow pace.

Starring that bloke who could have been famous but then he was in Battlefield Earth, Crawl should fail on every level, Deemed by some as 'Jaws with Alligators' or 'Snappy', I had some trepidation going into this, especially as Aja directed the awful Piranha remake.

As someone said, if you read this and would like to watch it, just forget about reality and watch this with empty head, just try, otherwise you will write 1 star comment too, I couldn't help it.

Surprisingly Intense!.

Riveting on the edge of your seat monster thriller.

Don't waste your time with it.

Entertaining throughout!

Very exciting movie with good cgi I wish more shark/ croc movies were like thisMust watch

I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.

Will have you on the Edge of your seat!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is by far the best Alligator movie I've seen, no, this is the most competent and somewhat realistic alligator movie that has come to cinema in a long time, it was really engaging and entertaining to watch.

Too many of the scenes were predictable and more often than not you could see what was going to happen.

Boring .

The film is intense.

It just made the film so much more entertaining as they did not hold back or play it safe which they easily could of done, they went all out and it really payed off as i was thoroughly entertained throughout the whole entire runtime which was the perfect length.

For the most part an exciting movie.

Tense, claustrophobic, and definitely worth the watch.

And it is predictable.

This movie is interesting in it combines a bit of monster horror with an otherwise intense actionfest.

Don't waste your time watching this so called movie.

I see this in so many American films and it just bores me to tears.

Surprisingly entertaining.

It was very intense!

We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Given the short run-time, the film is a slow exposition burn to the threat, from there, well it goes downhill in terms of story, sense and logic.

Crawl was corny, plotless, pointless, and pretty unbelievable...

I went in expecting a cheesy horror movie with a lot of jump scares, this was actually quite entertaining.

Surprisingly Entertaining .

Stupid but entertaining mix between Lake Placid and Into the Storm.

This is the northern hemispheric summer blockbuster we've been waiting for and saves these dull months, from being completely boring.

Was I on the edge of my seat the whole time ?

Worth the watch.

This movie was a entertaining under 90minute thriller!

It may not win over critics or much of the mainstream audience, but if you know what to expect from a B-movie, Crawl gets its act going pretty early with stunning hurricane imagery followed by alligators out man-hunting.

Entertaining enough .

A well-made suspenseful thriller about surviving a storm while being attacked by the most bloodthirsty alligators you can imagine.

It had loads of jump scares and kept you on the edge of your seat until the end.

But it kinda works because it was suspenseful.

Absolutely loved it , really well done , I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Boring, formulaic, unrealistic, stupid, dumbed-down...

Released this summer to theaters and making its way to disc this week you'll find it entertaining, frightening and will do for swimming what JAWS did years ago.

Through illogical logic, okay acting, and pointless scenes this film goes down as a bad film to put in the book.

Save your money.

Totally this movie is keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.

Finally got to see this film after it was realized in the US, and in all honesty, this was an absolute Brutal and vicious film that involves one of the best CGI animations from Alligators film ive seen in years, giving them a dark vicious Apex predator hunting anything that moves really give the film that intense and frightening tone.

Despite the predictable many near escapes it moved along nicely, and the gators were rendered quite real.

When in reality it's a bore and disappointment.

In brief pure entertainment and adrenaline!!!

Fact is this is one of the best creature movies out there and its an entertaining 90 mins.

I highly recommend it.

Wot a movie, Super thrilling at its best 👍👍

It gets caught in its own trap of simply not knowing where to head with its own material, and at times becomes frustratingly dull.

Watched the move due to it's rating, but it was nothing new, predictable and boring.

I really enjoyed it .

No story.

But it was entertaining, and that is what mattered.

Exciting, intense, fast-paced .

You do see people's bones sticking out of their body and you do see a gator rip a guys head off and it's incredibly intense to watch.


Entertaining fun movie .

There are basically only 2 characters (besides the alligators) but it still is interesting, suspenseful and you care for the characters.

You will be on the edge of your seat.

It's well shot and acted, but the story is slow, crocodiles are rare, at least this far.

Waste of time, and money.

Never once did any of the effects here look poorly rendered or embarrassingly amateur (see 2007's Lake Placid 2 for some of the worst crocodile CGI to ever disgrace a movie), and the level of practical effects on display here result in a pretty engrossing ride.

They are very beautifully and seamlessly done and that let's you be immersed in the world that the filmmakers have created.

Laughable yet thrilling .

The acting was good, the cast was good, the story was simple and straight forward, the pace was ok and it was exciting!

Shockingly suspenseful .

A breathtaking movie!.

Barry Pepper who was troubling familiar (I later realised I knew him from Saving Private Ryan) was generally sound as the dead-beat (and nearly beaten dead) dad, again pushing out trite lines that wouldn't have been out of place in a daytime soap opera.

A well done story that is both realistic and exciting all the way through.

For a film about killer alligators stalking a daughter and her dad in the midst of a category 5 hurricane that's hit the state of Florida, Crawl unfortunately takes itself far too seriously to be outright enjoyable, even if there are moments throughout Alexandre Aja's creature feature that show glimmers of what could've been.

Such a waste of time!

It's a very cool and entertaining horror flick, I recommend it.

It's entertaining...

This is dull, boring and uninspired.

A Zed category movie, no plot, no logic, no nothing in it.

Entertaining an enjoyable .

Good first 20 minutes, then tedious and unrealistis.

It doesnt matter if the movie is straight to video or a big blockbuster, a good movie,it doesnt even have to be great, will make you immersed in the happening throughout.

Crawl is very entertaining.

Has some good scares and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

At the end we have very enjoyable and entertaining fast movie...

So boring and dumb .

Also it's a pretty intense movie.

Felt like a deja vu movie and very predictable.

Who goes to see a scary alligator film and expects it to be anything but entertaining??!!

Wow they have great vision, great smell, so how come they are all blind and dull on smell in this "great" movie.

Effects wise very good but the acting was very dry.

So boring.

I have to give a very special thank you for the outstanding cinematography, really enjoyed it.

Don't waste your time.

The lead character makes so many obvious and cliche mistakes that made me question that I was actually watching a movie with a budget of over 13 millions dollars.

The plot is obviously very thin and lends itself for various dreadful cliches and predictable situations.

And the kills are all enjoyable.

The cliche-filled script doesn't help.

Also the relationship between her and her father is boring.

How she outruns some alligators in scenes and staying underwater for long periods of time is kind of unrealistic but it made for some suspenseful scenes.

Boring parts were right in the beginning and acknowledged the main characters ability to swim well.

it was everybodys nightmare to get trapped in middle of hurricane with them, my heart pounding all the times, the scenes was unpredictable, highy recommended movieeee!!!

I awaited for this film really excited and walked out disappointed.

A suspenseful and thrilling movie of the year for audience.

This movie doesn't overstay its welcome and it succeeds at precisely what it sets out to do, just be entertaining.

Intense and Fun, and not too over-the-top .

While I ripped on it there this is still enjoyable.

Thrilling stupitity .

Surprisingly intense, creepy and touching!

Sadly the very mundane truth is that the dad is in the crawl space under the house rather than in another dimension or mutated into a giant moth and so down we go to what will essentially be the setting for the rest of the film.

This film made my mouth very dry .. Fear and anxiety and rush All these feelings came to me together at the same moment

First, there was the contrived and corny father-daughter relationship.

What a utterly waste of time.

I enjoyed it!!!!

Too predictable .

It was entertaining to me, loved the melding of 2 genres, disaster flick and creature/horror.

My closing advice, do yourself a favor, save your money and wait until this is on Showtime.

Crawl was an enjoyable survival/horror romp.

Quite a bit of blood which I loved and lots of intense moments (mostly involving the dog).

It starts out well but it soon gets tedious and you're just watching too idiots making one dumb decision after another.

A simple movie with no hidden agenda and no preachy undertones, it was just straight up entertaining carnage.

Crawl is the typical movie with protagonists with a divine shield, that is, nothing serious can happen to them even if they are not injured, the plot is quite simple and repetitive two people trapped in a place that have to work together to be able to Get out of there, and that's exactly what Crawl is.

Sometimes, all you need to relax and release stress from work or life in general is a simple but effective, entertaining and undemanding horror movie with giant animals and dumb dialogues!

After so many dumb, cliche, and horribly performed jump scare sequences in previous horror flicks from this year, I finally got to watch a movie where the director knows how to truly scare people, and make them jump out of their chairs.

I'm actually glad that I did, as I found it pretty entertaining, well-produced, well-acted and well-directed (the only other film that I have seen that matches this one was The Shallows, which I also actually enjoyed, so there may be a trend for me in the works here).

Horror movies are becoming so complex now, I'm not saying it's a bad thing, so it was nice to watch a simple, straightforward, entertaining movie.

This movie is so predictable, and the acting is the worst I've ever witnessed!

No story no suspense, baseless movie.

Multiple things in this movie work very well, and some things that may be flawed are only hearsay because it could be said that the characters were packed full of adrenaline.

Slow start, some questionable decisions, still somewhat thrilling and entertaining with good acting.

While this movie is very stupid with some very cheesy and unrealistic moments and a ton of stuff that doesn't make sense, I enjoyed it.

It does have some intense scenes.

You can guess the story before the scene so the story is very boring.

There are of course a handful of characters introduced purely for the sake of being alligator fodder, resulting in some savagely entertaining kills inbetween the various efforts of the protagonists to escape their devastated home amidst alligator infested waters.

This is where the film is at its strongest and intense with some seriously graphic scenes, one including a wrench.

Once the conflict begins you are on the edge of your seat with worry for the protagonists it is when they waste screen time with unnecessary dialogue that have nothing to do with the dangers at hand the movie appears campy.

Not a complex film, but pretty entertaining.

Predictable, painful (to watch), and pumped full of nonsense.

Entertaining thriller if some what predicable .

Intense from start to finish amazing unexpected .

This was single handedly the worst movie I have seen in many years.

Stuffed to the brim with predictable clichés, brain dead acting from its lead protagonist, and CGI that rivals SyFy channel quality, it's difficult to stomach.

Ok so it's not going to win an Oscar, but this is just an enjoyable fun little horror film.

Gruesome, a bit ridiculous, suspenseful GREAT acting .

But it's mildly entertaining nonetheless.

a waste of time.

The movie has plenty of the typical tropes but it's still entertaining.

It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.


Crawl is an above average man versus wild movie with a predictable storyline.

The film is very fast paced.

Everything here is cliché, everything predictable one thousand miles ahead.

But outside of the thrilling Alligator sequences, there isn't much here.

Then, it picks up the pace with more intense thrilling scenes.

But Aja keeps the running time slim and the tension at a relative unbearable level, that you forgive the jumping of the Alligator every now and again.

It was a pretty entertaining flick.

Funny in parts and scary in others def enjoyed it watch it and check for yourself

Very intense .

There is is good scenes, but there is a boring scenes too.

So I will say this is a great film, well writen in most parts but a few flaws, but well worth watching for the most intense and brutal moments you possibly see in a film, that should've been Rated R because some scene is seriously brutal.

Nothing happens, except a few gash bite marks.

It's an entertaining thrill ride from start to finish with some genuinely shocking moments.. Never been so scared by a tree in my life!!

Prioritizing neat effects over character development, these movies always leave me emotionally empty and uninterested.

We both wanted to leave mid way through.

A very sharp exciting sequences of the characters fighting to survive.

Overall, really enjoyable tense movie & superb scenery.

) The whole father-daughter thing is probably needed to add some plot, but it's all trite and predictable.

) And while this was realistic and the effects were AMAZING - kudos for no fake looking alligators, the movie was so bland, predictable and brought so little to the subgenre, I was ultimately very bored.

For a film that toted a realistic, intense story, it doesn't end up delivering either of them.

it was SOOOOO predictable.

The film is fast paced with sufficient kills.

In the time of ultra realistic horror and gore films, deeply demonic plot lines, and super intense psychological thrillers, Crawl is a reminder of why we all got into horror in the first place.

This movie is trash how the Gators gonna kill everyone else they come in contact with bite these ppl many times and yet they survive waste of money to see

In fact, it's a tense and enjoyable affair throughout.

really slow start and then it got stupidly ott, the main characters should be tested on as they are clearly bionic or something, with an abnormally high pain threshold!

While it requires a suspension of disbelief, Crawl is a great horror that's well paced, scary and thrilling throughout.

Don't waste your time or money buying/renting this if you haven't already.

Like all stomach-churning chillers, "Crawl" knows when to spring unexpected jump scares on audiences.

What i really like about this movie it's that this is very fast and thrilling movie...

Boring throughout the middle and then more impossible things like the only trap door had furniture on top of it, it would have been funny if it was a grand piano and Liberace was playing it so loud he couldn't hear her scream.

"CRAWL" is a very intense survival horror film of the summer.

Very entertaining little flick .

The gags are largely unpredictable.

This film had me on the edge of my seat.

I really thought it was enjoyable and I'm sure most others especially those who like this particular genre will too.

Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.

The movie doesn't makes sense, their decisions don't make any sense, the drama around the story is boring and too cliche.

Although the hero and heroine of this movie are probably immortal Gods that seemed to survive any loss of blood from being viciously attacked by the gators, it was an exciting movie all in all.

A real suspenseful, gory, creepy, claustrophobic man-eating alligator flick!

Waste of Money & Time .

No plot twists, no script at all.

Literally every minute is used to its full potential, making for an engaging thriller that has enough bite to thrill many.

Waste of time .

Aja knows just how to use this compact location with bricks, pipes and rat traps as unexpected weapons against the big bad.

Waste of time .

I felt no suspense watching this,it was very predictable ,girl could take brutal strong bite from crock and left with small arm wound lmao 🤷‍♀️😂.

I'm a huge Alexandra Aja fan I have been since I was a mid teenager because of High Tension, (I don't understand how one of my sisters watched that because it disturbs me every-time) anyway Crawl is unexpected terror that creeps in perfectly!

Thus, Alexandre Aja has managed an effective film that successfully fulfills his objective: to keep the audience on the edge of the seat during 90 minutes.

Exciting, intense, and a fun thrilling ride.

Going back to the roots of creature features, this movie is very entertaining and a good popcorn film to watch during the hot summer days.

To make a film work like this as a horror thriller is really hard especial when you have alot of alligators it tends to take away the fear, but with this film they did a very clever thing in only showing the alligators when needed and keeping them out of sight for the most intense parts of the film.

Their relationship is enjoyable, much more so than what I had expected.

I thought much of it was unpredictable which was nice for a scary movie.

Thrilling and dramatic.

Don't waste your time and money.

Boring .

For the most part, although the premise sounds rather dull, the movie is very exciting and well-made.

Anyway if you want to be one of those "it was stupid and predictable" viewers that hate everything, don't go see this.

Alexandre Aja (director of the underrated Maniac and overlooked Pyramid) offers a excellent exciting creature feature flick.

Typical natural disaster (hurricane), typical monster (crocs), but still enjoyable to watch, with a fair number of kills and nice special effects.
