This review of the movie contains the following information:
A dangerous crocodile is causing havoc on a local farmer’s property, attacking her calves and threatening her livelihood. Brozzie is a tough, unfriendly farmer who is determined to rid the river of the crocodile and sets out to shoot it. The local ranger tries in vain to deter Brozzie and so decides to call in the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin and his wife Terri to relocate the croc.
Meanwhile a US spy plane explodes somewhere over Queensland dropping a satellite beacon containing highly sensitive data. US agents are dispatched to Australia to retrieve the beacon which they trace to Brozzie’s property.
Relocating the aggressive croc is a very dangerous mission for the Irwins and proves to be no easy task. They eventually manage to get the croc onto the boat and set off to relocate the animal.
The US agents discover that the Irwins are in the locality of where the device is and decide that they must be spies. The chase is on as the US agents as well as their rival Australian counterparts, track down the Irwins. The ensuing result is quite funny with the Irwins totally unaware of all that is going on. They believe their pursuers to be poachers after the croc. The beacon is finally discovered when it is ‘passed’ by the croc who had of course, swallowed it. Steve has no idea what it is and uses it as a ball. All ends well however, as the croc gets moved to a new river system and the Americans get their beacon back
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
There is some violence in this film including:
Children under five are most likely to be frightened by scary visual images, such as monsters, physical transformations.
There is quite a bit of scary material in this movie including:
Children aged five to eight will also be frightened by scary visual images and will also be disturbed by depictions of the death of a parent, a child abandoned or separated from parents, children or animals being hurt or threatened and / or natural disasters.
Children in this age group may also be disturbed by the above mentioned scenes.
Children aged eight to thirteen are most likely to be frightened by realistic threats and dangers, violence or threat of violence and / or stories in which children are hurt or threatened.
The scenes with the crocodiles and the snakes display very real danger and Steve Irwin puts himself into very dangerous situations. This could scare older children.
Children over the age of thirteen are most likely to be frightened by realistic physical harm or threats, molestation or sexual assault and / or threats from aliens or the occult.
None of concern.
There is very little sexual reference.
No nudity or sexual activity.
No substance use.
Very few instances of course language.
This is a conservation movie and the main message that Steve gets across with much enthusiasm is that animals belong in their environment and should be left alone in order to maintain the fine web of life.
