Rogue Movie Review

Rogue is a 2007 horror movie directed by Greg McLean and starring Sam Worthington, Radha Mitchell and Michael Vartan.

The movie begins in the Northern Territory in Australia. A crocodile comes out of the water and attacks a cow. It is a big crocodile. An American called Pete McKell(Vartan) is taking a wildlife tour. It is a tour watching crocodiles in the river. He is with a few others. The wildlife expert leading the tour is called Kate Ryan(Mitchell). They see some crocs and meet two guys in the water. They are Neil(Worthington) and Collin. Kate knows them and she moves the tour back to the start. They see a flare in the sky. Kate needs to see if someone needs rescuing. They find an upturned boat and something hits their boat. Their boat fills with water. They have to stop. The radio isn't working. Everyone starts to panic. They need to cross the river.  A crocodile is in the river. Pete is worried.
Neil and Collin pass them, but don't help. The crocodile knocks their boat over and  Collin gets attacked. Neil is okay. They end up on an island in the middle of the river. They need to move though, as by nighttime, the island will be covered with water.

Neil decides to swim across and set up a line for them to climb across.  Neil swims over and he meets the crocodile. He is killed. One of the tourists falls off the line and gets eaten too. Pete finds a huge hook and he wants to keep the croc still while they cross over. They find dead fish to use. They get ready to swim across. The crocodile comes. They have to run for it. Kate is still in the water. The crocodile attacks her. Pete swims to save her. She is gone. Pete finds a cave and he falls down into a cavern filled with water. There are dead bodies there and Kate is in there too. The crocodile is coming back to its lair. He wants his food. The crocodile goes for a sleep. Pete wants to get Kate out. The crocodile wakes up  and chases him. He injures it. He has a spike and he sticks it into the crocodile. He kills it. He carries Kate out and the police have come. The survivors from the tour are there. Kate is airlifted to hospital.

I really liked this film. It was a lot of fun and there were some great scenes with the crocodile. It had a good story and I liked the monster croc. It had a good cast too including John Jarratt! This is a pretty straightforward movie. I mean, it is a story of man versus crocodile but it works very well. I had a good time watching this and I highly recommend it. I enjoyed it a lot. I will give it an 8/10.
