Lake Placid 2 Reviews
John Schneider is the sheriff, and just grins a lot. Cloris Leachman reprises Betty White's nut job (as her sister), but without the funny lines. A big game hunter with grenade launchers fails to match Oliver Platt's role, and the Bridgette Fonda look-alike also does nothing. Sheriff John has summertime custody of a poor actor teen son, in order to introduce some annoying cardboard cutout screaming teens. Since Croc Jr. seems to have an appetite for annoying cardboard cutout screaming teens, you quickly realize what their function to the story is, and you find yourself rooting for the croc to eat them as soon as possible. There's one idiotic scene, apparently ripped off from the 3 Stooges, where a croc victim is talking while the creature behind him waits patiently for him to shut up, before devouring him.
Nothing interesting happens. Really a bad movie, that fails at both horror and comedy. All it does is waste your time 1 Star 11 -12-13
Who said that "Lake Placid" needed a sequel in the first place?????
Now let's get into the movie...The most obvious thing being the CGI. What the hell was that? Did they have a budget of 100 $ or what? Because those damn crocs looked awfully bad. It is a 2007 "movie" and I guess it has 80's like quality effects. The worst is when the crocs have to interact with the cast (*eat them*).You never get to see the deaths.....which are all lame and utterly predictable by the way.
Then you have the acting. Saying that it was laughable would be an understatement! And calling the actors wooden would be an insult to wood! I have never seen such bad acting in any movie ever! I mean, Britney in Crossroad was Oscar material compared to this! And it is incredible, becuase the acting isn`t generally bad, it is consistently pathetic throughout the whole "movie" (I am taking chances calling it a movie).
You find yourself constantly cheering for the crocs to kill all them and save us from the travesty of their acting. It is so bad that I laughed really hard and it kept me engaged just to see if the next scene could be worse than the one preceding it. And believe me it never gets any better nor has any redeeming qualities...
The action is particularly bad as well, also predictable and dead BOOOORING! You always saw it all coming, you said :"Hey here he dies" and damn right, that guy died in that precise moment! Those are obvious things but then there are things that are not obvious but they are so stupidly out of place that you could have never predicted them, which is even worse.
The script I am sure is 1 page long....I mean, someone was dying and 2 minutes later they were making jokes and kept going with their lives...and they even made jokes of the dead guys....
I think the director truly has an evil mind, or he made a pact with the devil to bring torment to us. I mean, many would prefer hell before having to sit through this movie for the hour and a half it lasts. It is painful to see, and I would recommend to see this movie just to show the world what you should never do in a movie.
I think I have extended myself way much more than this piece of crap deserves....it is surely the worst movie I've ever see. But words are not enough, it has to be seen to be believed.
Go see it.......if you dare......
The only good thing about this movie was Sadie, the old lady. She was hilariously grumpy, and I found it funny how she named the crocodiles. Other than that, I can't think of anything that would make this movie worth watching.
