Overview

Rogue

A handful of tourists looking for adventure get more than they bargained for when they cross paths with a massive man-eating beast in this thriller. Pete McKell (Michael Vartan) is a writer for an American travel magazine who has been assigned to write a story about vacationing in rugged Northern Australia. Pete signs up for a cruise along a river that's home to a large crocodile population, with tough but pretty Kate Ryan (Radha Mitchell) serving as guide. Pete soon finds he's roughing it in the Aussie wilds with an eclectic variety of travelers, including Russell (John Jarratt), who is dealing with the death of his wife; Simon (Stephen Curry), a tactless amateur photographer; and Allen (Geoff Morrell), a member of the British upper crust making the trip with his ailing spouse (Heather Mitchell) and their rambunctious daughter (Mia Wasikowska). While Kate's former husband, who also works on the river, makes a pest of himself in the early stages of the voyage, the travelers soon find they have more to worry about when their craft is attacked by a massive 25-foot crocodile, who is just clever enough to know how to trap its prey before enjoying them for dinner. Rogue was written and directed by Greg McLean, who made a splash among horror fans in 2005 with his debut film, Wolf Creek.

Since I liked the director's previous Australian horror, Wolf Creek, I figured that this should be watchable as well but basically I'm just a huge sucker for creature features! Anything monstrous that eats annoying characters is cool in my book and I'm always on a look out for horror movies with giant crocs or werewolves or anything mean with a bite.

The main reason why I enjoyed the movie was the care that was given to it in the beginning, other than a poor native cow loosing its life in the first shots the set up for the story was done perfectly. As the film began, the music and breathtaking scenery were stealing the show and for a few moments I forgot I was watching a horror movie and got lost in the beauty of Australia. I must add that the soundtrack was really good; it's definitely going on my list of soundtracks to buy as I love to collect the good ones and anyone who appreciates good film music would enjoy it thoroughly. The list of characters is short, dozen or so people going on a river tour under the watchful eyes of Kate (the awesome Radha Mitchell from Silent Hill) and her trusty dog. After running into some crazy locals one of the tourists notices a flare going off, in a secluded religious section on top of rocky cliffs that has shunned people for ages. Trying to be the good Samaritan, Kate decides to check out the signal and that's when the crazy stuff starts. I could just tell that once they turned down the dark path there was no going back!

Something happens, people get stranded and suddenly they are not alone. Very quietly they are being snacked on by an immensely large crocodile. This is not your average crock, but a leviathan of the swamps and rivers from the deepest horrors one can dream up and not only hungry but mean as hell! His jaws speed and stealth along with the amazing ability to stay quiet and not scare his food supply was enough to make me jump for joy, and at the same time I was worried about those unfortunate people. I wasn't looking forward to any of them getting eaten; well maybe two that we meet in beginning but they get some brownie points back later so they were on my good guys list anyway. I guess Rogue is the perfect pet name for this angry croc, he's certainly after more than just a meal here.

The characterization was really good even if short, the close bonds the tourists had with each other were on perfect display and it made me cringe whenever something would happen to any of them. This proved to be a fun film for a rainy day, but really any day is perfect for good horror. I felt that the special effects were really good, nothing fake and puppet like, although I wish the crock would make more appearances, guess he was camera shy, but he did stick around for a good ending.
