The movie takes place in a small town in California where a secret government experiment has gone horribly wrong. The experiment involved genetically combining a crocodile and a prehistoric dinosaur resulting in a deadly hybrid creature called DinoCroc.

The movie opens with a team of scientists performing the experiment on a crocodile, unaware of the dangers they have unleashed. Meanwhile, in the nearby community of Grovers Bend, residents are going about their daily business, oblivious to the looming danger. Before long, the DinoCroc has escaped from the laboratory and begins to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting townsfolk.

The authorities soon get involved, and the small town is placed under quarantine as they attempt to track down and capture the DinoCroc. However, this task is easier said than done, as the creature proves to be incredibly fast and cunning, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

The movie's main protagonist is Dr. Campbell, played by Costas Mandylor, a scientist who has been working on the project and feels responsible for the danger that has been unleashed on the town. He joins forces with the town's sheriff, played by Charles Napier, and a team of government agents led by Bruce Weitz.

Together, they attempt to capture the creature and put an end to its rampage, but the DinoCroc proves to be a formidable foe. As the creature continues to cause chaos and destruction, the tension and suspense in the movie continually increase, making for an exhilarating and nail-biting experience.

The movie's special effects are impressive, with the DinoCroc looking both fearsome and realistic. The practical and digital effects are well integrated, and the movie does a good job of balancing the use of both. The cinematography is also noteworthy, with some excellent aerial shots of the town that help to create an atmosphere of impending doom and destruction.

The movie's pacing is well balanced, with the action scenes interspersed with moments of tension and suspense.
