Steve Irwin is insane, and nothing proves that better than his series on Animal Planet, The Crocodile Hunter. Now, with Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course on DVD, everyone can view just what he does, and does so well. MGM has done a fine job with this disc. The image, framed at 2.35:1 and anamorphic, is quite strong. Colors are nicely reproduced and the Australian scenery has never looked so good. It's far from the best transfer, but still is very pleasant to look at. The 5.1 English Dolby Digital track is also nice, but hardly anything to get overly excited about. Dialogue is clear (making Irwin's accent all the easier to understand), and there are moments of good separation between speakers. Altogether good but nothing too surprising. What is surprising on this disc is the number of supplements. The extras here really compliment the rest of the disc. Of great interest are three sections, one a documentary called "A Croc in Shot: The Making of Collision Course," as well as two long featurettes of behind-the-scenes shots, including "Lights! Camera! Animals!" with plenty of crocs and very poisonous snakes. In addition are four deleted scenes and an alternate ending, with introduction by director John Stainton. Not quite as interesting, and at times annoying since it blocks off a good portion of the screen, is the "crock track," which supplies a huge variety of facts (not always about the film). Not to be left out is a rather silly version of "Crocodile Rock" by Baha Men, outback interactive games, plus both the theatrical and teaser trailers. Finally, if this all wasn't enough, is a nicely organized photo gallery. Irwin's huge cable hit may lose a bit on the big screen due to a mediocre government subplot, but there's still enough here to keep any animal lover entertained.

This was a very good movie. Lots of action and humor. **We will miss U**

This movie is as close to nonfiction as a fiction movie can get. The plot is obviously one that could never happen in real life, but Steve and Terri treat it as real. Such a fabulous job on every one's part!

The movie The Crocodile Hunter is genuinely horrible. I can¿t believe a movie can be this bad. The plot of this so called ¿movie¿ stunk. My kids wouldn¿t even like it. I have to admit that this movie is O.K. to watch¿only if you have your eyes closed. This movie has some good characters from the T.V. show Crocodile Hunter. His wife and him go to Australia to find a crocodile when they both get tangled in a huge misunderstanding that they took jewels from a gang boss. If you¿re a die hard fan of Steve Erwin, then you might like it. Other than that I would suggest that you stay clear from it.

Honestly, I didn't expect much from this movie, but we showed it in a group and everyone present found it very funny. It had a bumpy start, but as it got going, it got sillier and more clever. It was a good-humored send-up of the original series, spy movies and science fiction.
