    Although the suspense was kind of underwhelming, its strong writing and performances compensates well enough.

    I appreciated the shot selection and the acting in this above all else, but it was very good in nearly every area. The dialogue was subtle and well-written, the McGuffin plot point of rescuing her dad was well-obfuscated and there was plenty of suspense. I thought the alligators were given an unfair shake in that they probably aren't that overtly deadly in real life and they don't hunt in packs, but for a creature feature it felt original and well-handled. I hate how much of a nonfactor they made the dog as they spent several scenes showing him do nothing whatsoever and would've preferred him be eaten over a fate so dull. The actress really impressed me in particular as I'd never heard of her before and she's young enough to be a definite Oscar contender in the future.

    It had a lot of potential... but the death scenes were outrageously unrealistic. During a hurricane in Florida alligators wouldn't be swarming only a small area of water killing groups of people within two blocks lengths from each other.

    I hate stupid plots. You need to get to a phone while there is a giant gator trying to eat u, you need every bit of sense for vision, slightest sound and movement, but then you carry on casual conversation with your dad who is risking his own daughters safety and life by distracting and so on....Just plain stupid. Would there be any moron who successfully grab a phone on where giant gator can reach you and try to make a call right there instead of going back to the safe area first then make a call, yes there is. Professional swimmer who can't even do proper CPR yes...I mean every action by character is just so plain stupid it keeps distracting you from falling in the movie.

    Another confusing film. This was saved somewhat by what I generally despise: the jump scare. Many of them were exquisitely timed and really startled us as viewers. The "gore" scenes were also well done. The plot was thin and, at times, nonsensical but the movie was actually a bit of fun. If you have nothing better to do it's fun.

    Engaging performances by Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper and solid direction by Alexandre Aja. In fact, his work here impressed me enough to put his seven previously directed horror films on my watch list. Shoutout too to Aja's frequent collaborator cinematographer Maxime Alexandre.
