A few Jump scares in the beginning but as the movie went on it was unbearable to watch. The gator attacks were predictable and the dialog is frustrating. They try to force this reconnection between the father and daughter with these motivational speeches in the most inappropriate times where time is of the essence and gators are attacking you.
It’s a very good movie but it needs a different ending.
Crawl’s virtues, however, remain formidable: It’s fast, efficient, crisply directed, and delivers on the promised alligator thrills. In another year, that might be worth a polite nod. This year, however, those B-movie values feel especially refreshing, and illuminating too.
The single-minded simplicity of its plotting can at times be an asset rather than a hindrance; in a summer even more bogged down by needless sequels and remakes than most, Crawl is, at the very least, a lean thriller that isn’t based on an existing property.
Accepting the film's own standard of plausibility, thrillseekers should appreciate the brisk pace with which scares, setbacks and possible escapes are delivered.
