Director Lewis Teague tries to work with a lot of big issues, such as the disparity between the rich and the poor, the relative merits of animal testing, and the immorality of politics and big corporations. None of these "insights" really make a strong impression, but that's OK because we're watching this for the big f*cking alligator, not social commentary.
So does the BFA work? Mostly, but the problem is we've seen the concept done many times before, so the actual tension level is near zero. Add to that a stupid "Great White Hunter" sub-plot and a distracting romantic liaison that does not result in any gratuitous nudity and you've got yourself one fun, cheesy, but far from classic ride.

Audio Commentary with Director Lewis Teague and Actor Robert Forester: Done in an awkward interview format that comes across as a bit self-aggrandizing and not particularly informative I'm afraid.
