A Film Review of "Crocodile Hunter Collision Course"

Copyright 2002 Glenn Walker

I have to admit up front I have a soft spot for Steve Irwin. Any guy who picks up one of the world's deadliest snakes by the tail and its head is trying desperately to latch onto his groin and the guy has the balls to say, "Kids, don't try this at home!" This guy has my respect.

The story is pretty simple. A satellite containing top secret surveillance info crashlands in the outback where Steve, wife Terri (who has the patience of a saint) and dog are filming wildlife segments for their Animal Planet program. Croc eats satellite, Steve relocates croc, C.I.A. follows, hilarity ensues.

The great thing is nowhere does Steve break character from his tv show, he's constantly talking to the audience the entire time. It's charming, it's different and vastly entertaining. Lotsa deadly animals, lotsa close calls and lotsa laughs, don't miss this - I think, the best family flick of the summer so far.
