Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Crawl isn’t a bad film. It’s just not a great one. The central idea is fine but sadly lead Kaya Scodelario lacks the skills to really pull off something as hokey as this. Director Alexandre Aja has been here before and forgot to bring the fun this time out and in the end it’s all pretty predictable stuff almost totally lacking in gore (save for one rather nice moment near the end). It’s short (which is nice) but in-between the limited moments of alligators attacking the film is nothing we’ve not seen many, many times before. One for a Friday night after a few beers.
Best Bit: The Alligators arrive
