“ 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.....
“ Enjoyable watch .
“ Well worth a watch, enjoyable cinema.
“ This film made my mouth very dry .. Fear and anxiety and rush All these feelings came to me together at the same moment
“ What a waste of time.
“ 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.
“ You want to see a great movie and sit on the edge of your seat...
“ Worth the watch.
“ This film had me on the edge of my seat.
“This one was an incredibly fun and enjoyable effort.
“ It also helps that the film is consistently thrilling, putting you on the edge of your seat near the entire film.
“ So boring and dumb .
“ 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.
“This is the northern hemispheric summer blockbuster we've been waiting for and saves these dull months, from being completely boring.
“ I went in expecting a cheesy horror movie with a lot of jump scares, this was actually quite entertaining.
“ You'll be gripping into your arm rests.
“ Very intense.
“ 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.
“ Very unreasonable, ridiculous and very boring.
“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.
“ The plot is obviously very thin and lends itself for various dreadful cliches and predictable situations.
“ Entertaining fun movie .
“ I like the gore, blood and thrilling effect that the movie brings.
“ 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!
“ Good acting, decent script, simple plot and lots of gator gore bring this movie to a fun and exciting finish.
“ Because flaws aside, it was an entertaining movie for me, as I said.
“ I find a lot of real-life here against "Joker" (i know, I'm boring).
“ Very suspenseful, not cheesy, well done, zero superheros.
“ Thrilling and dramatic.
“ But that said, this movie is entertaining if you throw logic out the window.
“Overall, I enjoyed "Crawl" on a boring Friday evening.
“ 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.
“Anyway if you want to be one of those "it was stupid and predictable" viewers that hate everything, don't go see this.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ It had loads of jump scares and kept you on the edge of your seat until the end.
“ Typical natural disaster (hurricane), typical monster (crocs), but still enjoyable to watch, with a fair number of kills and nice special effects.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ It is ridiculous but it is suspenseful.
“ Some of the attack scenes are genuinely gory but it's a fun, fast paced and hugely enjoyable and I loved the black humour.
“ For a film that toted a realistic, intense story, it doesn't end up delivering either of them.
“ Dont waste your time or money worst hour and a bit of my life
“ 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
“The score is so bland and generic it could have been taken from countless other films.
“ 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.
“ Quite a bit of blood which I loved and lots of intense moments (mostly involving the dog).
“Haley; if you get dragged by an alligator you're pretty much dead already.
“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.
“ Exciting, intense, and a fun thrilling ride.
“ Their relationship is enjoyable, much more so than what I had expected.
“ You will be on the edge of your seat.
“ 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.
“ Will have you on the Edge of your seat!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“ A Zed category movie, no plot, no logic, no nothing in it.
“ Don't waste your time .
“ It does have some intense scenes.
“ Slow start, some questionable decisions, still somewhat thrilling and entertaining with good acting.
“) 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.
“ While the plot was a little bit silly, the film was action packed and exciting at every turn.
“ A well-made suspenseful thriller about surviving a storm while being attacked by the most bloodthirsty alligators you can imagine.
“ Suspenseful Little Horror Flick .
“ Save your money.
“ Suspenseful and well made.
“ It may be far fetched but hey, it's a movie and it's very entertaining.
“For the most part, although the premise sounds rather dull, the movie is very exciting and well-made.
“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).
“ 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.
“ Don't waste your time .
“While I ripped on it there this is still enjoyable.
“ 5/10 - this bland thriller is only mildly entertaining
“ A very sharp exciting sequences of the characters fighting to survive.
“ Fun and entertaining .
“ My closing advice, do yourself a favor, save your money and wait until this is on Showtime.
“ Crawl is very entertaining.
“ The entire house is not only used, but the gators get access too, and it makes for some very entertaining and thrilling scenes.
“ We enjoyed it thoroughly.
“ Tense, claustrophobic, and definitely worth the watch.
“ Intense, fast paced, and just plain fun.
“ Mindblowing CGI / Boring writing .
“ it's not supposed to be real, it's supposed to be entertaining.
“ 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.
“ Surprisingly Entertaining .
“ Intense realistic disaster monsters flick, well acted too.
“ Intense, suspenseful, action packed!!.
“ I went to see this movie out of boredom.
“ Overall, the movie is surprisingly entertaining.
“ It was entertaining to watch.
“ It's entertaining...
“ Suspenseful, claustrophobic sequences, straightforward plot, and set in (mostly) just one location.
“ I enjoyed it so much from the start to end!
“ Also it's a pretty intense movie.
“ But it kinda works because it was suspenseful.
“Crawl is an above average man versus wild movie with a predictable storyline.
“a waste of time.
“ The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.
“ Nothing happens, except a few gash bite marks.
“ A breathtaking movie!.
“ No plot twists, no script at all.
“ 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.
“ Predictable at best .
“ 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...
“ Surprisingly entertaining.
“ I have seen better intense dog bites of that magnitude ....
“ Funny in parts and scary in others def enjoyed it watch it and check for yourself
“ It was very intense!
“ Super boring and unentertaining.
“ This is by far one of the most suspenseful movies I've watched in a while.
“ Yet, they've all been entertaining in their own (brutal and frightening) right.
“ Don't waste your time with it.
“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.
“Boring, formulaic, unrealistic, stupid, dumbed-down...
“ It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
“ Occasionally some pointless characters shows up and dies immediately because they're are also dumb.
“ Towards the end of the film, some of the action scenes start to get repetitive.
“ Ridiculously good and jaw gripping, no pun intended.
“ I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.
“ It was entertaining to me, loved the melding of 2 genres, disaster flick and creature/horror.
“ And it is predictable.
“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.
“ Most of the times it was easily predictable what was gonna happen.
“ Though critics raved for this film I disliked it very much due to its very slow pace.
“ 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 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.
“ ON THE EDGE.
“ 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.
“ But overall it is a well made movie and is worth the watch.
“ Fairly boring .
“ This movie is a total waste of time.
“ My ultimate suggestion: save your money and wait until this gets on a streaming service instead.
“ I really thought it was enjoyable and I'm sure most others especially those who like this particular genre will too.
“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.
“ A well done story that is both realistic and exciting all the way through.
“ It's intense.
“ In brief pure entertainment and adrenaline!!!
“ This movie is so entertaining if you don't think too much about the situations or events and just try to enjoy it.
“ A waste of time.! Very predictable, lock of common sense.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ But seriously, don't waste your time.
“ It is a little predictable but worth the watch.
“ 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!
“ Very intense suspense thriller!
“ Waste of money the 1950 creature from the black lagoon was more believable
“ It was intense, claustrophobic, filthy, bloody and wet.
“ 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
“ 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.
“This movie was a entertaining under 90minute thriller!
“ Upon arriving at his apartment, it's empty except for his dog.
“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.
“ Watched this with my friend and we both enjoyed it very much!
“ 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⭐
“ Entire film full of intense action and scary scene!
“ Boring version of sharknado in a basement .
“ Entertaining enough .
“ There is is good scenes, but there is a boring scenes too.
“ 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.
“ This is boring rediculous trash.
“ Was I on the edge of my seat the whole time ?
“ Thoroughly enjoyed it.
“ Suspenseful and entertaining in equal measure.
“ From tense moments to great character building, Crawl cements itself as an enjoyable horror flick that I would definitely re-watch and highly recommend.
“ Wot a movie, Super thrilling at its best 👍👍
“ An entertaining B-movie you want, an entertaining B-movie you get!
“ 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.
“Alexandre Aja (director of the underrated Maniac and overlooked Pyramid) offers a excellent exciting creature feature flick.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“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.
“ Nothing new, bad acting, characters without character, illogical as hell, boring set/location, no story, no development, no scare, no nothing.
“ Then, it picks up the pace with more intense thrilling scenes.
“ But it's mildly entertaining nonetheless.
“ 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.
“ It's not original, but still, for it's genre, it's enjoyable enough.
“ but in some part, especially on act 1 its so boring, and the ending its damnfully flat.
“ 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 🤷♀️😂.
“ fast paced I was waiting for a happy after disaster father daughter moment.
“ Shockingly suspenseful .
“ It was just too predictable for me.
“ 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.
“ The movie doesn't makes sense, their decisions don't make any sense, the drama around the story is boring and too cliche.
“ Don't waste your time .
“ Thrilling and exciting.
“ 3 times gator got her, in last he even perform death roll on her and she still was able to swim like nothing happen.
“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.
“ Wow they have great vision, great smell, so how come they are all blind and dull on smell in this "great" movie.
“Crawl grabbed the viewers attention as soon as it begins and keeps you on the edge of the seat until the very end.
“ Must see for anybody who loves a side order of adrenaline and terror with their thrillers.
“ Extremely boring and ridiculous.
“ No story.
“ Everything here is cliché, everything predictable one thousand miles ahead.
“ As a native Floridian, I personally found it quite entertaining despite its major plot holes and demonization of alligators.
“ The movie is fast paced and pressure filled!
“ The cgi effects were great intense.
“ 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!
“ 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.
“ It gets caught in its own trap of simply not knowing where to head with its own material, and at times becomes frustratingly dull.
“ 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 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.
“ Thrilling stupitity .
“ It builds up suspense and also better than many repetitive scares .
“ The ending reminded me of pet sematary, a very quick and fast phased ending to a slow phased movie.
“ it was SOOOOO predictable.
“ 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.
“ Very Intense!.
“ Very entertaining little flick .
“ Of course this is to make the movie exciting, you're supposed to be scared for what will happen to the characters next.
“ 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.
“ Waste of time .
“ Add alligators who want nothing more than meat, it gets more thrilling and suspenseful.
“ Such a waste of time!
“ A slow start story with a hardship of competitive swimming.
“ So boring.
“ Crawl surprised me at how tense,entertaining and terrifying it was.
“ Overall, a part from a few plot holes it was worth the watch and delivered quite well the hunter/hunted scenario.
“ 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.
“ If you are looking for an entertaining movie for a hour and a half then go watch it.
“ With compelling leads and a simple concept, Alexandre Aja delivers an entertaining, suspenseful, claustrophobic, and technically creative movie.
“ This was single handedly the worst movie I have seen in many years.
“(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.
“ Crawl was an enjoyable survival/horror romp.
“ We both wanted to leave mid way through.
“ Despite the predictable many near escapes it moved along nicely, and the gators were rendered quite real.
“ 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.
“ Was well worth the watch very tence on edge through it all when you think their safe then .....
“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's an entertaining thrill ride from start to finish with some genuinely shocking moments.. Never been so scared by a tree in my life!!
“ Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.
“ Riveting on the edge of your seat monster thriller.
“ It had some solid jokes, decent gore, great jump-scares and intense sequences.
“ Prioritizing neat effects over character development, these movies always leave me emotionally empty and uninterested.
“ It's well shot and acted, but the story is slow, crocodiles are rare, at least this far.
“ The movie is surprisingly gory, with enough thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat!
“Overall, it was a decent movie that is worth watching if you like being kept on the edge of your seat.
“ Leading actress did a very good job, scenes very intense and Barry Pepper as supporting actor was good...
“ 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.
“ Really enjoyable.
“ Worst movie of the year.
“ I see this in so many American films and it just bores me to tears.
“ Nothing happened to the hand or leg after biting by a giant crocodile.
“ The movie was fast paced and bloody fun.
“ Exciting, intense, fast-paced .
“ This one was quite entertaining with a twist.
“ This movie is so predictable, and the acting is the worst I've ever witnessed!
“ Aja knows just how to use this compact location with bricks, pipes and rat traps as unexpected weapons against the big bad.
“ Perfect summer, enjoyable, popcorn film .
“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.
“ Not a complex film, but pretty entertaining.
“ Overall, it is intense and thrilling.
“ A real suspenseful, gory, creepy, claustrophobic man-eating alligator flick!
“ And they swim slower than humans under water.
“ 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.
“ The gags are largely unpredictable.
“ This movie doesn't overstay its welcome and it succeeds at precisely what it sets out to do, just be entertaining.
“ Watched the move due to it's rating, but it was nothing new, predictable and boring.
“ For the most part an exciting movie.
“ Waste of time, and money.
“ 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.
“Crawl is an intense, exciting, and bloody for a disaster horror film that might as well be the Jaws version movie about alligators.
“ Yes some of it seems unrealistic to happen but still exciting.
“Predictable plot with unrealistic drama.
“ I'm not gonna lie, this was a solid movie, I really enjoyed it.
“ Too many of the scenes were predictable and more often than not you could see what was going to happen.
“The film is very fast paced.
“ The pacing is excellent, and the ending is good even if a bit predictable.
“ "CRAWL" is a very intense survival horror film of the summer.
“ Actually entertaining .
“ The actors all did fine, the main actress stood out above the rest and the dog also made the movie more enjoyable.
“ You are literally watching nothing happen besides people splashing around in the water.
“ Also the relationship between her and her father is boring.
“ The film is fast paced with sufficient kills.
“ What a utterly waste of time.
“ It's a very cool and entertaining horror flick, I recommend it.
“ Nevertheless, it is entertaining even if it is ridiculous.
“ 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.
“ After that it just become a predictable farce.
“ If you want to deliver an entertaining and captivating story, you have to write an enthralling screenplay.
“ Highly Entertaining Summer Popcorn Muncher.
“ The filmmakers go out of their way to waste your time.
“ I would imagine that non-Floridians would find this movie extremely confusing.
“For a B-movie, the visual effects are quite compelling.
“ In fact, it's a tense and enjoyable affair throughout.
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ On the edge of my seat until the very end, which came quickly because the time flew by!!!!
“ Many critics called this an entertaining albeit farfetched movie.
“Totally this movie is keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.
“ Nonetheless, the film is enjoyable with great special effects, go watch it now!
“ Ok so it's not going to win an Oscar, but this is just an enjoyable fun little horror film.
“ That's the gist of the white-knuckled yet predictable and farcical, Crawl.
“ 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.
“ Definitely on the edge of your seat many of times.
“ The plot is pretty predictable.
“ Too predictable .
“ Entertaining .
“The storyline is not what I expected, much more intriguing that I imagined.
“ The acting was good, the cast was good, the story was simple and straight forward, the pace was ok and it was exciting!
“However, on a Sunday afternoon, bored out of my mind, I decided to give this movie a look.
“ Through illogical logic, okay acting, and pointless scenes this film goes down as a bad film to put in the book.
“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.
“ The story is intense because there is danger from both the alligators and from rising water level.
“ Stressful and entertaining at will .
“I found the film to be really enjoyable.
“ Still, its grounded tone, convincing visuals and compelling central performances keep it from feeling silly.
“ Has some good scares and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ I have to give a very special thank you for the outstanding cinematography, really enjoyed it.
“ Man vs nature is always an exciting premise and this movie doesn't fail in that sense.
“ This was the most boring movie I've seen in a long time.
“ This is where the film is at its strongest and intense with some seriously graphic scenes, one including a wrench.
“ 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.
“ Fact is this is one of the best creature movies out there and its an entertaining 90 mins.
“ Predictable, painful (to watch), and pumped full of nonsense.
“ Boring .
“ Has you at the edge of your seat the whole time.. VERY suspenseful and terrifying!
“This movie is an entertaining way to spend 90 minutes.
“ At the end we have very enjoyable and entertaining fast movie...
“ Picture this: the character gets chomped on the leg by a massive alligator, and then dragged backwards and tossed around.
“ Like all stomach-churning chillers, "Crawl" knows when to spring unexpected jump scares on audiences.
“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.
“ I would have enjoyed it even more if it was just a bit longer.
“ 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.
“ I thought much of it was unpredictable which was nice for a scary movie.
“ I was bored and had nothing to watch on tv...
“ 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.
“ I awaited for this film really excited and walked out disappointed.
“ It starts out well but it soon gets tedious and you're just watching too idiots making one dumb decision after another.
“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.
“ Good first 20 minutes, then tedious and unrealistis.
“ This movie is just stunning.
“ Pretty predictable.
“ A simple movie with no hidden agenda and no preachy undertones, it was just straight up entertaining carnage.
“ It has a decent story, the action and intense direction with the music score.
“ It is truly shockingly suspenseful, amazing acting and like most of the comments on here say.
“ Entertaining throughout!
“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 highly recommend it.
“ 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!!!
“ It's all a bit repetitive and doesn't provide much in the way of constant tension or excitement.
“ Absolutely loved it , really well done , I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole time.
“ Completely captivating and suspenseful the whole time, and time went by fast.
“ Laughable yet thrilling .
“ 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!
“ Felt like a deja vu movie and very predictable.
“ Waste of Money & Time .
“ Intense from start to finish amazing unexpected .
“ Nevertheless, Crawl is a widely entertaining film from beginning to end and ranks as one of the best creature features in recent memory.
“ I saw this in the theater and was on the edge of my the entire time.
“ I really enjoyed it!
“ Entertaining an enjoyable .
“ Gruesome, a bit ridiculous, suspenseful GREAT acting .
“ First, there was the contrived and corny father-daughter relationship.
“ I enjoyed it!!!!
“ This movie is interesting in it combines a bit of monster horror with an otherwise intense actionfest.
“ It's entertaining and that's all that matters.

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

“ The entire film was incredibly suspenseful, nail-biting and knows what it wants to be.
“ 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).
“ 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.
“ (The budget was a mere 13.5 million) The action comes from the intense hurricanes and alligators.
“ Surprisingly Intense!.
“ Very 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.
“ This is dull, boring and uninspired.
“ 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.

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

“ But it was entertaining, and that is what mattered.
“ 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.
“ 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.

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

“ Definitely watchable and entertaining.
“The main thing is that the movie is entertaining and exciting to watch.
“ Thrilling exciting experience .
“ Don't waste your time and money.
“ Unexpected and entertaining .
“ 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.
“ 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.
“ Boring .
“ Boring parts were right in the beginning and acknowledged the main characters ability to swim well.
“ Annoying, awful, but if you are bored watchable .
“ Besides being super predictable, the writing of this movie is very lazy.
