Croczilla movie scene

Croczilla eyes some appealing appetizers.

The 2012 Chinese horror-action-comedy movie Croczilla is one China’s first-ever creature feature films.

A giant foot crocodile named Mao—who measures 36 feet in length and weighs some two tons–goes on the rampage in Beijing after being moved from a peaceful crocodile farm and onto the menu of a local gangster. As if that’s not bad enough, Mao encounters the beautiful model Wen Yan (Barbie Hsu, Future X Cops) and gobbles down her bag, which contains $1 million, not to mention her mobile phone! The beast continues to terrorize innocent people, even as the army hunts it down and the lovely lady tries to recover her lost cash!

Poor Wen Yan! No wonder the movie was called Million Dollar Crocodile when it was released in theaters in its native China in June, 2012.

Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Li Sheng Lin (who won the best director prize for his film at the China Movie Channel Media Awards at the 2012 Shanghai International Film Festival), Croczilla is listed on imdb.com as having a PG-13 rating, though Screen Media states that there’s an R rating pending for its U.S. DVD premiere.

Well, with a description that reads like a one of those SyFy giant monster flicks like Mega Python vs. Gatoroid or Sharktopus, we’re thinking that Croczilla could be some fun!

Croczilla is presented in Mandarin with English subtitles.
