Director: Lewis Teague
Starring: Robert Forster, Henry Silva, Michael V. Gazzo
Mutant alligator. Thatís pretty much all you need to
know about the plot! But wait! Itís not nearly as awful as it sounds.
Fair enough, itís routinely directed (by Cujoís Teague) but the
witty script is written by John Sayles (itís effectively a rewrite of
his 1978 hit Piranha), and there are winning performances from Jackie
Brownís Robert Forster, and a great tongue-in-cheek role for Henry
Silva. Digital Entertainmentís disc is nothing special, and suffers from
the same inadequacies as the companyís
(poor source materials, full-frame transfer, compression artefacts). The
15-rated UK DVD version is more complete than the British theatrical
version, which was cut for an A certificate.
