| Another monster crock movie
Add one more name to monster crock movies. Here is a brief of the movie. There is monster crock in some very poor African country and you and your friends have to kill that crock. Someone in the team wants to catch it alive, but you know what happens to such characters. We all know that.

The climax is something unexpected. I won't say "you have to watch it to believe it". Its an average animal horror movie. Is there anything good about it? Yes, the beauty of the African country. Amazing landscapes, beautiful colors, beautiful shots.

Should you try this movie? yeah, you can. But don't expect it to be another Lake Placid.

Trivia

Description Since Gustave has not been captured, his exact length and weight is unknown, but in 2002 it was stated that he could be "easily more than 18 feet (5.5 m)" long, and weigh more than 2,000 pounds (910 kg). He was estimated to be around 100 years old in order to achieve such outstanding size; however, further more careful observation of Gustave revealed a complete set of teeth when he opened his mouth. Since a 100-year-old crocodile "should be nearly toothless" (according to the documentary), he was estimated to be "probably no older than 60, and likely, still growing". Gustave is also known for the three bullet scars on his body. His right shoulder blade was also found to be deeply wounded. Circumstances surrounding the four scars are unknown. Scientists and herpetologists who have studied Gustave claim that his uncommon size and weight impede his ability to hunt the species' usual, agile prey such as fish, antelope and zebra, forcing him to attack larger animals such as hippopotamus, large wildebeest and, to some extent, humans. According to a popular local warning, he is said to hunt and leave his victims' corpses uneaten. The documentary film also stated that since crocodiles can go several months without eating, Gustave could afford to select his prey carefully. In 2009 the croc had reappeared in Ruzizi River near Lake Tanganyika.
