“ The film is intense.
“ (The budget was a mere 13.5 million) The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.
“ 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.
“Director Alexandre Aja keeps the gripping story moving along at a breathless brisk pace, takes time to develop the extremely sympathetic lead characters, treats the rather absurd premise with admirable seriousness, generates a tremendous amount of nerve-wracking claustrophobic tension, and stages the bloody'n'brutal alligator attacks with heart-pumping go-for-the-throat gusto.
“ Surprisingly entertaining.
“ 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.
“ Has you at the edge of your seat the whole time.. VERY suspenseful and terrifying!
“ 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.
“ The acting was good, the cast was good, the story was simple and straight forward, the pace was ok and it was exciting!
“ It was suspenseful and intense throughout!!
“ Despite the predictable many near escapes it moved along nicely, and the gators were rendered quite real.
“ Perfect summer, enjoyable, popcorn film .
“ This is by far one of the most suspenseful movies I've watched in a while.
“ Fairly boring .
“ A breathtaking movie!.
“ 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.
“ Overall, the movie is surprisingly entertaining.
“ 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!
“ They are very beautifully and seamlessly done and that let's you be immersed in the world that the filmmakers have created.
“ The usual predictable unrealistic film.. All you'll keep saying is really.. Like that wud ever happen, why u doing that, why didn't the alligator rip her leg or arm off wen it caught her like it did with others.. Rubbish
“ 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.
“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).
“ Waste of time, and money.
“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.
“ Ok, so for starters, out swimming an alligator is not realistic, we get it, but if your going to go by realistic elements in most movies, might as well only watch very slow dramas.
“The storyline is not what I expected, much more intriguing that I imagined.
“ 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.
“ It had some solid jokes, decent gore, great jump-scares and intense sequences.
“ Yes, it was exciting!
“ Surprisingly Intense!.
“ You want to see a great movie and sit on the edge of your seat...
“ 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.
“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.
“ Man vs nature is always an exciting premise and this movie doesn't fail in that sense.
“ I would have enjoyed it even more if it was just a bit longer.
“ Actually entertaining .
“ The movie doesn't makes sense, their decisions don't make any sense, the drama around the story is boring and too cliche.
“a waste of time.
“ I'm not gonna lie, this was a solid movie, I really enjoyed it.
“ Entertaining fun movie .
“ Watched the move due to it's rating, but it was nothing new, predictable and boring.
“ Very intense.
“Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.
“ It builds up suspense and also better than many repetitive scares .
“ Intense and Fun, and not too over-the-top .
“) The whole father-daughter thing is probably needed to add some plot, but it's all trite and predictable.
“ Waste of money the 1950 creature from the black lagoon was more believable
“ Stressful and entertaining at will .
“Otherall this movie is predictable.
“ Ever since it exploded in the mid-late 90's, I always found them to be more gaudy and exploitative than legitimately compelling.
“ If you are looking for a simple, fun and entertaining thrill ride, this is for you.
“ 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.
“ This film had me on the edge of my seat.
“ Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.
“ This is where the film is at its strongest and intense with some seriously graphic scenes, one including a wrench.
“All in all, Crawl was a suprisingly enjoyable film that took me by surprise.
“ I thought it was very well made with decent acting and a lot of tension and I really enjoyed it, it's certainly better than some of the crap that I've seen recently.
“ I went to see this movie out of boredom.
“ 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⭐
“ 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.
“ If you want to deliver an entertaining and captivating story, you have to write an enthralling screenplay.
“ But it kinda works because it was suspenseful.
“ I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.
“ Intense, Suspenseful and Gory .
“ For the most part an exciting movie.
“ I have seen better intense dog bites of that magnitude ....
“ A GRIPPING CREATURE FEATURE WITH THE EXCELLENT BARRY PEPPER .
“ Intense, suspenseful, action packed!!.
“ Worst movie of the year.
“ Nothing new, bad acting, characters without character, illogical as hell, boring set/location, no story, no development, no scare, no nothing.
“ This was single handedly the worst movie I have seen in many years.
“ It's all a bit repetitive and doesn't provide much in the way of constant tension or excitement.
“ Nothing happens, except a few gash bite marks.
“ It was very intense!
“ Too predictable .
“ Nothing happened to the hand or leg after biting by a giant crocodile.
“ 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.
“ I see this in so many American films and it just bores me to tears.
“ Like all stomach-churning chillers, "Crawl" knows when to spring unexpected jump scares on audiences.
“ Some of the attack scenes are genuinely gory but it's a fun, fast paced and hugely enjoyable and I loved the black humour.
“ Thoroughly enjoyed it.
“ 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.
“ 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 really thought it was enjoyable and I'm sure most others especially those who like this particular genre will too.
“ 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.
“ Fast paced never falls off .
“ 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!!
“ Definitely on the edge of your seat many of times.
“ There is is good scenes, but there is a boring scenes too.
“ Entertaining thriller if some what predicable .
“ It is ridiculous but it is suspenseful.
“ 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.
“ Don't waste your time .
“ Wot a movie, Super thrilling at its best 👍👍
“For a B-movie, the visual effects are quite compelling.
“ 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.
“ Also it's a pretty intense movie.
“ But outside of the thrilling Alligator sequences, there isn't much here.
“ Don't waste your time with it.
“ But it was entertaining, and that is what mattered.
“ It's entertaining...
“ Crawl was an enjoyable survival/horror romp.
“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.
“Overall, it was a decent movie that is worth watching if you like being kept on the edge of your seat.
“ And they swim slower than humans under water.
“ Don't waste your time and money.
“ A well-made suspenseful thriller about surviving a storm while being attacked by the most bloodthirsty alligators you can imagine.
“ I enjoyed it!!!!
“ Predictable, painful (to watch), and pumped full of nonsense.
“ Mindblowing CGI / Boring writing .
“ I loved it cause it was a real nail biter with full of thrilling moments.
“ 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.
“ Their relationship is enjoyable, much more so than what I had expected.
“ Stupid but entertaining mix between Lake Placid and Into the Storm.
“ Crawl is very entertaining.
“ Thrilling stupitity .
“ "CRAWL" is a very intense survival horror film of the summer.
“ Suspenseful and entertaining in equal measure.
“ Upon arriving at his apartment, it's empty except for his dog.
“ 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.....
“ Predictable, cliche driven .
“ This movie is just stunning.
“ No plot twists, no script at all.
“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.
“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.
“ "CRAWL" is basically a Creature feature & a Disaster Movie mixed together as there's a massive hurricane that hits Florida & girl named Hayley Keller, an excellent energetic performance by Kaya Scodelario, who returns home during the start of the hurricane to find her dad who hasn't answered her calls & hasn't left yet, he's injured & the film becomes a survival tale with father & daughter trying to out smart the hungry Gators & make it through the house that's going under as the water rises & lots of hungry Gators swim in during the flood, we have a great solid & intense performance from Barry Pepper as the father Dave Keller, Barry Pepper has been one of my favourite actors since the 90's & he's definitely one of the most underrated actors out there in my opinion, when i heard that Barry Pepper was gonna be a main lead in a monster movie about killer gators & it's directed by Alexander Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, remake) & it was produced by the Horror legend Sam Raimi, i was too excited & it delivered.
“ Entertaining throughout!
“ Good first 20 minutes, then tedious and unrealistis.
“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.
“ Definitely watchable and entertaining.
“ I really enjoyed it .
“ Worth the watch.
“ Shockingly suspenseful .
“ Felt like a deja vu movie and very predictable.
“ With great performances from the two leads, good CGI, intense thrills and impressive atmosphere, Crawl is a very fun creature feature.
“ It's entertaining and that's all that matters.
“ Intense, fast paced, and just plain fun.
“ The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.
“ Don't waste your time .
“ The filmmakers go out of their way to waste your time.
“ Annoying, awful, but if you are bored watchable .
“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.
“ Effects wise very good but the acting was very dry.
“ Crawl was corny, plotless, pointless, and pretty unbelievable...
“This is the northern hemispheric summer blockbuster we've been waiting for and saves these dull months, from being completely boring.
“ A waste of time.! Very predictable, lock of common sense.
“ It also helps that the film is consistently thrilling, putting you on the edge of your seat near the entire film.
“ 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!
“ I highly recommend it.
“ A very sharp exciting sequences of the characters fighting to survive.
“ It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
“ There are basically only 2 characters (besides the alligators) but it still is interesting, suspenseful and you care for the characters.
“ The entire house is not only used, but the gators get access too, and it makes for some very entertaining and thrilling scenes.
“ The ending reminded me of pet sematary, a very quick and fast phased ending to a slow phased movie.
“ Leading actress did a very good job, scenes very intense and Barry Pepper as supporting actor was good...
“ Yes some of it seems unrealistic to happen but still exciting.
“ Exciting, intense, fast-paced .
“ Boring .
“ Poor script and acting aside, this was intense for me.
“ Dont waste your time or money worst hour and a bit of my life
“ You can guess the story before the scene so the story is very boring.
“ I personally really appriciate movies like these every once in a while, especially when they're done well enough to be entertaining.
“Haley; if you get dragged by an alligator you're pretty much dead already.
“ Towards the end of the film, some of the action scenes start to get repetitive.
“ It's well shot and acted, but the story is slow, crocodiles are rare, at least this far.
“ 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.
“ The pacing is excellent, and the ending is good even if a bit predictable.
“For the most part, although the premise sounds rather dull, the movie is very exciting and well-made.
“ 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...
“This movie is an entertaining way to spend 90 minutes.
“ No story.
“ Don't waste your time or money buying/renting this if you haven't already.
“ Waste of time.
“ The plot was very predictable.
“ This movie is so entertaining if you don't think too much about the situations or events and just try to enjoy it.
“ It also had some pretty gruesome deaths which made it entertaining.
“ Great effects and action packed.
“ Was well worth the watch very tence on edge through it all when you think their safe then .....
“ So boring and dumb .
“ The movie was fast paced and bloody fun.
“ Ridiculously good and jaw gripping, no pun intended.
“ Suspenseful, claustrophobic sequences, straightforward plot, and set in (mostly) just one location.
“ Crawl surprised me at how tense,entertaining and terrifying it was.
“ While the plot was a little bit silly, the film was action packed and exciting at every turn.
“ 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 have to give a very special thank you for the outstanding cinematography, really enjoyed it.
“ Thrilling exciting experience .
“ Suspenseful Little Horror Flick .
“ Wow they have great vision, great smell, so how come they are all blind and dull on smell in this "great" movie.
“ 3 times gator got her, in last he even perform death roll on her and she still was able to swim like nothing happen.
“ 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.
“ I would imagine that non-Floridians would find this movie extremely confusing.
“ This movie is a total waste of time.
“ 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.
“ I awaited for this film really excited and walked out disappointed.
“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.
“ Watched this with my friend and we both enjoyed it very much!
“ 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.
“ But seriously, don't waste your time.
“ A suspenseful and thrilling movie of the year for audience.
“ Boring .
“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.
“Overall, I enjoyed "Crawl" on a boring Friday evening.
“ This was the most boring movie I've seen in a long time.
“ 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.
“ Entertaining an enjoyable .
“ 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.
“ Overall, really enjoyable tense movie & superb scenery.
“ 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.
“ Many critics called this an entertaining albeit farfetched movie.
“ I saw this in the theater and was on the edge of my the entire time.
“ Which he builds the intense suspense throughout from the jump scares.
“ Simple yet Entertaining Monster Movie .
“ Fortunately "Crawl" has a fine balance between the realistic and the stupid, all in all it was damn entertaining from start to finish.
“ Though critics raved for this film I disliked it very much due to its very slow pace.
“ Overall, a part from a few plot holes it was worth the watch and delivered quite well the hunter/hunted scenario.
“ Crawling on the edge of their seats!!
“ I went in expecting a cheesy horror movie with a lot of jump scares, this was actually quite entertaining.
“ 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.
“ In brief pure entertainment and adrenaline!!!
“ Tense, claustrophobic, and definitely worth the watch.
“ Very intense suspense thriller!
“ It was just too predictable for me.
“ A Zed category movie, no plot, no logic, no nothing in it.
“ Don't waste your time.
“ ON THE EDGE.
“ You will be on the edge of your seat.
“ Picture this: the character gets chomped on the leg by a massive alligator, and then dragged backwards and tossed around.
“ Gruesome, a bit ridiculous, suspenseful GREAT acting .
“ Really enjoyable.
“ 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.
“ Riveting on the edge of your seat monster thriller.
“ The idea of killer alligators attacking people seems to be unoriginal, but here, they put some twists on it and made it an enjoyable film.
“Alexandre Aja (director of the underrated Maniac and overlooked Pyramid) offers a excellent exciting creature feature flick.
“ At the end we have very enjoyable and entertaining fast movie...
“ Absolutely loved it , really well done , I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole time.
“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.
“ Nevertheless, Crawl is a widely entertaining film from beginning to end and ranks as one of the best creature features in recent memory.
“ With compelling leads and a simple concept, Alexandre Aja delivers an entertaining, suspenseful, claustrophobic, and technically creative movie.
“ 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.
“ Pointless supporting actors/extras who we know are gunna die are on screen for a few mins then get gobbled up.
“ Good acting, decent script, simple plot and lots of gator gore bring this movie to a fun and exciting finish.
“ Pretty predictable.
“ Typical natural disaster (hurricane), typical monster (crocs), but still enjoyable to watch, with a fair number of kills and nice special effects.
“ Of course this is to make the movie exciting, you're supposed to be scared for what will happen to the characters next.
“ Storyline was entertaining.
“ Very intense .
“ After that it just become a predictable farce.
“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.
“ 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.
“ You can even call it exciting at times.
“ 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.
“ The film is fast paced with sufficient kills.
“ The movie is surprisingly gory, with enough thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat!
“ This is boring rediculous trash.
“ The entire film was incredibly suspenseful, nail-biting and knows what it wants to be.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ Intense, Scary, Solid Movie .
“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.
“ Entertaining enough .
“ 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.
“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.
“ you'll likely feel this movie is a formulaic repeat.
“ 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.
“Totally this movie is keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.
“ Don't waste your time .
“ We both wanted to leave mid way through.
“ Waste of Money & Time .
“ 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.
“ Also the relationship between her and her father is boring.
“The film is very fast paced.
“ My closing advice, do yourself a favor, save your money and wait until this is on Showtime.
“ Waste of time .
“ An entertaining B-movie you want, an entertaining B-movie you get!
“ It was suspenseful, exiting and emotional.
“ it's not supposed to be real, it's supposed to be entertaining.
“ Intense from start to finish amazing unexpected .
“ It was intense, claustrophobic, filthy, bloody and wet.
“ Completely captivating and suspenseful the whole time, and time went by fast.
“ It gets caught in its own trap of simply not knowing where to head with its own material, and at times becomes frustratingly dull.
“Literally every minute is used to its full potential, making for an engaging thriller that has enough bite to thrill many.
“ But it is definitely entertaining and enjoyable for what it turned out to be.
“ So boring.
“ Ok so it's not going to win an Oscar, but this is just an enjoyable fun little horror film.
“ No story no suspense, baseless movie.
“ It is a little predictable but worth the watch.
“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.
“ Scenes like the looters at the market across the street or the sacrificial officers who are immediately ripped to shreds simply reek of cannon fodder to stretch out what's going on while the repetitive quality of dropping them back into a house for another round of stalking speaks to the film running on empty to get to a respectable full-length feature.
“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
“ Most of the times it was easily predictable what was gonna happen.
“ Fact is this is one of the best creature movies out there and its an entertaining 90 mins.
“ It had loads of jump scares and kept you on the edge of your seat until the end.
“ It's not original, but still, for it's genre, it's enjoyable enough.
“ This is dull, boring and uninspired.
“ It may be far fetched but hey, it's a movie and it's very entertaining.
“ I was bored and had nothing to watch on tv...
“ It starts out well but it soon gets tedious and you're just watching too idiots making one dumb decision after another.
“ A bore movie.
“ For me the dialog and main formula of the movie was tedious and cheesy.
“ The cliche-filled script doesn't help.
“ Everything here is cliché, everything predictable one thousand miles ahead.
“ First, there was the contrived and corny father-daughter relationship.
“ Will have you on the Edge of your seat!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“ This film made my mouth very dry .. Fear and anxiety and rush All these feelings came to me together at the same moment
“ Entertaining .
“ Very unreasonable, ridiculous and very boring.
“ Boring version of sharknado in a basement .
“ Predictable at best .
“ This one was quite entertaining with a twist.
“ Very suspenseful, not cheesy, well done, zero superheros.
“ Laughable yet thrilling .
“ This is an entertaining movie with tension and some gore too, if you are critical of small things in a movie, then probably not a movie for you, if you want to be entertained for 1.5 hours and not have to think too much this will do it.
“ That's the gist of the white-knuckled yet predictable and farcical, Crawl.
“ Very Intense!.
“ Predictable and clear in where it got its inspiration from, but enjoyably entertaining nonetheless.
“ Because flaws aside, it was an entertaining movie for me, as I said.
“ It was entertaining to watch.
“The score is so bland and generic it could have been taken from countless other films.
“However, on a Sunday afternoon, bored out of my mind, I decided to give this movie a look.
“ Too many of the scenes were predictable and more often than not you could see what was going to happen.
“ Overall pretty good summer horror movie, sure it has a few mistakes here and there but overall enjoyable.
“ It's simply shot with a minimum cast and it still manages to put you on the edge and tell a solid story.
“ 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
“ Add alligators who want nothing more than meat, it gets more thrilling and suspenseful.
“ I really enjoyed it!
“ A slow start story with a hardship of competitive swimming.
“i & practical fx, the look of the town is great with flood & the intense atmosphere of things are gonna get worse & they always do.
“ Slow start, some questionable decisions, still somewhat thrilling and entertaining with good acting.
“ Waste of 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.
“ But it's mildly entertaining nonetheless.
“ This a harmless film and it offers a lot of fun and thrilling moments.
“ Highly Entertaining Summer Popcorn Muncher.
“ Besides being super predictable, the writing of this movie is very lazy.
“The two main characters were both enjoyable to watch and I felt the chemistry between the actors.
“ fast paced I was waiting for a happy after disaster father daughter moment.
“The main thing is that the movie is entertaining and exciting to watch.
“ Extremely boring and ridiculous.
“ 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.
“ Quite a bit of blood which I loved and lots of intense moments (mostly involving the dog).
“Overall this is a good movie, it is just short and simple but still good and enjoyable.
“ Surprisingly intense, creepy and touching!
“ 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.
“ But the movie got quite stupid when she gets bitten on the arms and legs and just walks it off like nothing happened.
“ There are some thrilling and breathtaking scenes and the premise of the movie is quite interesting, so in my opinion, the movie wasn't bad.
“ This movie doesn't overstay its welcome and it succeeds at precisely what it sets out to do, just be entertaining.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ From tense moments to great character building, Crawl cements itself as an enjoyable horror flick that I would definitely re-watch and highly recommend.
“Crawl is an intense, exciting, and bloody for a disaster horror film that might as well be the Jaws version movie about alligators.
“ The gags are largely unpredictable.
“ Fun and entertaining .
“ Then, it picks up the pace with more intense thrilling scenes.
“ 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.
“ The movie is fast paced and pressure filled!
“This one was an incredibly fun and enjoyable effort.
“ Not a complex film, but pretty entertaining.
“ 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.
“ Aja knows just how to use this compact location with bricks, pipes and rat traps as unexpected weapons against the big bad.
“ On the edge of my seat until the very end, which came quickly because the time flew by!!!!
“ We enjoyed it thoroughly.
“Boring, formulaic, unrealistic, stupid, dumbed-down...
“ Was I on the edge of my seat the whole time ?
“ Boring parts were right in the beginning and acknowledged the main characters ability to swim well.
“ 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).
“ Thrilling and dramatic.
“ Entire film full of intense action and scary scene!
“ What i really like about this movie it's that this is very fast and thrilling movie...
“ Nevertheless, it is entertaining even if it is ridiculous.
“ Exciting, intense, fast-paced.
“ When in reality it's a bore and disappointment.
“ 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.
“This movie was so boring.
“ I highly recommend it.
“ very boring and generic .
“ Unexpected and entertaining .
“While I ripped on it there this is still enjoyable.
“ 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.
“) 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.
“ You'll be gripping into your arm rests.
“Don't waste your time watching this so called movie.
“ Save your money.
“ Enjoyable with great special effects.
“ Undoubtedly one of my best, as it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
“ 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 story is intense because there is danger from both the alligators and from rising water level.
“ In fact, it's a tense and enjoyable affair throughout.
“ What a waste of time.
“ Pretty enjoyable.
“ Boring and stupid .
“ It was a pretty entertaining flick.
“(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.
“ Has some good scares and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ Well worth a watch, enjoyable cinema.
“ You are literally watching nothing happen besides people splashing around in the water.
“ Through illogical logic, okay acting, and pointless scenes this film goes down as a bad film to put in the book.
“ 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.
“ I enjoyed it so much from the start to end!
“ But overall it is a well made movie and is worth the watch.
“ 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 🤷♀️😂.
“ A simple movie with no hidden agenda and no preachy undertones, it was just straight up entertaining carnage.
“ This movie is so predictable, and the acting is the worst I've ever witnessed!
“ Suspenseful and well made.
“ Enjoyable watch .
“ The actors all did fine, the main actress stood out above the rest and the dog also made the movie more enjoyable.
“ It's intense.
“ And it is predictable.
“ 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!
“ My ultimate suggestion: save your money and wait until this gets on a streaming service instead.
“ It's really intense, scary, and overall fun.
“ The plot is obviously very thin and lends itself for various dreadful cliches and predictable situations.
“ I like the gore, blood and thrilling effect that the movie brings.
“ Still, its grounded tone, convincing visuals and compelling central performances keep it from feeling silly.
“ Nonetheless, the film is enjoyable with great special effects, go watch it now!
“ Occasionally some pointless characters shows up and dies immediately because they're are also dumb.
“ The cgi effects were great intense.
“ While it requires a suspension of disbelief, Crawl is a great horror that's well paced, scary and thrilling throughout.
“The movie has no more depth than the shallow basement waters inhabited by the gators, but it's entertaining enough for cursory viewing experience, especially given the brisk 87-minute run time.
“ The movie has plenty of the typical tropes but it's still entertaining.
“Crawl is an above average man versus wild movie with a predictable storyline.
“ Such a waste of time!
“ What a utterly waste of time.
“ 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.
“ I find a lot of real-life here against "Joker" (i know, I'm boring).
“ Pretty intense!
“ it was SOOOOO predictable.
“ Super boring and unentertaining.
“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.
“This movie was a entertaining under 90minute thriller!
“ Very exciting movie with good cgi I wish more shark/ croc movies were like thisMust watch
“ If you are looking for an entertaining movie for a hour and a half then go watch it.
“ Very entertaining little flick .
“ Yet, they've all been entertaining in their own (brutal and frightening) right.
“ Funny in parts and scary in others def enjoyed it watch it and check for yourself
“ 5/10 - this bland thriller is only mildly entertaining
“ Who goes to see a scary alligator film and expects it to be anything but entertaining??!!
“ It is truly shockingly suspenseful, amazing acting and like most of the comments on here say.
“ If you're wanting an engaging horror natural disaster thriller, then this film falls a bit short.
“ but in some part, especially on act 1 its so boring, and the ending its damnfully flat.
“ Intense realistic disaster monsters flick, well acted too.
“ Must see for anybody who loves a side order of adrenaline and terror with their thrillers.
“ 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.
“At the heart of this gripping Monster movie is a nice sweet story of a Daughter & father reconnecting & bonding together, even if it is under extreme terrifying circumstances.
“Crawl grabbed the viewers attention as soon as it begins and keeps you on the edge of the seat until the very end.
“ Surprisingly Entertaining .
“ It was entertaining to me, loved the melding of 2 genres, disaster flick and creature/horror.
“ This movie is interesting in it combines a bit of monster horror with an otherwise intense actionfest.
“ 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.
“ As a native Floridian, I personally found it quite entertaining despite its major plot holes and demonization of alligators.
“ Overall, it is intense and thrilling.
“ It's fun and entertaining.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ For a film that toted a realistic, intense story, it doesn't end up delivering either of them.
“ The plot is pretty predictable.
“Various clanging expositiony lines jar throughout, but the worst thing is that they all provide insight whcih is pointless and only serves to make the characters seem more vacuous and stereotyped.
“ I thought much of it was unpredictable which was nice for a scary movie.
“ A well done story that is both realistic and exciting all the way through.
“ It's a very cool and entertaining horror flick, I recommend it.
“ It does have some intense scenes.
“ Thrilling and exciting.
“ 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.
“I found the film to be really enjoyable.
“ 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.
“ This movie was entertaining, fun and suspenseful.
“Anyway if you want to be one of those "it was stupid and predictable" viewers that hate everything, don't go see this.
“ But that said, this movie is entertaining if you throw logic out the window.
“ Prioritizing neat effects over character development, these movies always leave me emotionally empty and uninterested.
“ A real suspenseful, gory, creepy, claustrophobic man-eating alligator flick!
“ And the kills are all enjoyable.
“ Watch that instead, its a lot more engaging.
“ 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!!!
“ Exciting, intense, and a fun thrilling ride.
“ 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!
