The trend of animals coming in sizes XXL and above wrecking havoc continues in Hollywood with this latest avatar of Anaconda, Komodo and the like. Blood Surf, for the uninitiated, stands for a death-defying stunt where surfboard aces take to shark infested waters, leaving a trail of blood to lure the big fishes. The idea is to surf at high speed in the midst of these hungry fishes, dodging their snapping jaws. For the watchers, this is a high adrenaline sport.

An American producer (Andrew), along with his team of an Australian photographer (Sez), two surfers (Tony and Bob) and three other local hands, plans to take a boat to the sea. But the adventure takes on a face that they never bargained for - a thirty-one foot crocodile!

What ensues is a high-tension, on-the-edge drama, as the beast takes them one by one. It seems as if this croc has made a certain part of the Barrier Reef his own and claims any form of life that encroaches its terrain. Enter here an ex-marine with a bone of contention to settle with the overgrown reptile. But everything is sadly very predictable and the end has been seen many times before.

The movie therefore fails to inspire anything new and looks more like a rerun of its more illustrious predecessors. But to be true to the movie, it does have its moments such as a scene where the croc leaps out of the water and swallows a sailor right off his ship. And for those of you like on-screen violence, there is more than just a little blood and gore all around.

And the end - take a guess - the croc dies and the on-screen pair of Tony and Sez are the only survivors to tell the gruesome tale. Love blooms between the two, for lack of any remaining choices, and it's happily ever after for them.

Not much, you'll say, and we can't agree more. The direction is nothing to speak of, and the actors have done an okay job. The special effects are not in the class of Anaconda or Lake Placid, and the baddie beast looks as real as a rubber toy, which it actually is.

In the end, you are much better off reading this review than actually watching the real thing. And if you still dare, don't say we didn't warn you!
