A massive killer crocodile in the Australian Northern Territory terrorizes the riverside communities and exacerbates tensions tensions between local authorities and indigenous people. A conservation ranger, played by John Jarratt (Wolf Creek, Rogue), is caught in the middle as a man who is on friendly terms with the indigenous elders, who view the crocodile as a spirit creature representing their past, but is tasked by his superiors with killing the huge animal. All the while, several gun-toting drunk poachers decide to take matters into their own hands by hunting down and killing every crocodile in their path. The beautiful Nikki Coghill stars as an anthropologist who has a romantic past with Jarratt's character.

The 1987 Australian film, Dark Age, features perhaps the most unsettling crocodile killing that I have ever seen. Early in the film, a young indigenous boy is playing on the beach when the crocodile zeroes in on him. An audible cracking sound is heard when the creature closes its jaws down on the boy. Aside from this one nightmarish moment and a handful of crocodile poaching scenes, the film is viscerally tame, yet awesomely intense.

I love the spiritual components of Dark Age, when the story delves into the dances and traditions of the indigenous people regarding the crocodile legend. The always-amazing actor, David Gulpilil (The Right Stuff, The Proposition, Walkabout, The Last Wave), who is generally acknowledged by American moviegoers as the face of the indigenous Australians, and Burnham Burnham, who plays his father, lend a wonderful mystical edge to the proceedings.

The creature effects for the giant crocodile are quite convincing as far as practical effects go, thanks to restraint on the part of the filmmakers. Saltwater crocodiles really can get pretty big in Australia, and this fictional entity looks quite similar to footage that I've seen of the real thing.

I always enjoy catching “Ozploitation” films that never received proper recognition here on our shores. As such, my first viewing of Dark Age this weekend was quite a joy.

This Umbrella Blu-ray sports a naturally filmic transfer and an impressive audio presentation. The subtitles come in handy during a few scenes, and the wealth of special features is both informative and fun.

Default "Dark Age" (Umbrella Entertainment) blu-ray

Hello.

I recently bought "Dark Age" on blu-ray from Umbrella Entertainment but thereīs a thing that bugs me.

My copy has some kind motion blur in some scenes in the movie and some of them are distracting... the end credits are a good reference.

Iīve read many reviews and they all categorized the picture quality has "very good" or "excellent" for such an old movie.

I donīt know if I have a bad copy or not... or maybe itīs just the way the blu-ray was released.

Can someone who has the movie give their thoughts?

Make sure TruMotion/motion smoothing is turned off in the settings on your TV. That’s probably the issue.
