Rogue, a 2007 action-thriller directed by Greg McLean, is set in the wilderness of the Australian Outback. The film stars Michael Vartan, Radha Mitchell, and Sam Worthington in the lead roles. The story revolves around a group of tourists who board a river cruise in search of wildlife and adventure. Kate Ryan, played by Radha Mitchell, is the tour guide who accompanies the group on the boat. During the trip, they come across a secluded island and decide to explore it.

However, their expedition soon turns into a nightmare when they encounter a massive, ferocious saltwater crocodile. The group is left stranded on the island and forced to fight for survival against the deadly creature. With no means of communication and no help in sight, they must devise a plan to escape before it's too late.

Michael Vartan plays the role of Pete McKell, a travel writer who finds himself caught up in the chaos. Initially skeptical of the trip, he soon realizes the gravity of the situation and becomes an integral part of the group. As the tension builds, Pete races against time to come up with a strategy to outsmart the crocodile and save the lives of the remaining survivors.

The film is notable for its breathtaking and realistic portrayal of the Australian Outback. The cinematography captures the stunning landscapes, the eerie silence, and the beauty of nature juxtaposed with the suddenness of violence. The boat ride sequences, as well as the scenes where the group is stranded on the island, are tense and gripping.

The actors give noteworthy performances, with Radha Mitchell delivering a nuanced performance as Kate Ryan, the competent and resilient tour guide. Michael Vartan's portrayal of Pete McKell, a man haunted by his past, is both convincing and sympathetic. Sam Worthington's brief appearance as Neil, a reckless tourist, is memorable, showcasing the charisma that he would later become known for in Hollywood blockbusters.

Rogue is not just a movie about a man vs. animal struggle, but a commentary on the destructive impact of humans on nature. The crocodile, portrayed as a menacing villain, is not demonized but instead given a motive and a backstory. The film skillfully weaves in the theme of the fragility of the ecosystem, drawing parallels between the survival of the crocodile and the survival of humans.

Overall, Rogue is a thrilling and engaging action movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is not for the faint-hearted, as some of the scenes are graphic and intense. However, it is a must-watch for those who enjoy adrenaline-pumping adventure films with a touch of ecological consciousness.

Rogue is a 2008 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
