Lake Placid Reviews

    Great re-watchable movie. Betty White, with a brief role, was very funny. Bridget Fonda is great in this role. The ratings on this movie are way too low

    I really enjoy this film - it's got a great cast and the action and horror/comedy mix is perfect. Plus the practical effects boost this higher up than a lot of other croc features.

    I must say I always do like the first instalment in any monster movie series. Lake Placid (1999), being the first in a long list of big & bigger giant gators to come, it packed a healthy mix of dry sarcasm, sexist remarks & monster seeking sequences that luckily didn't bore me.

    With the very mediocre plot and effects and the terrible writing of such characters, this would be a great homage to the Anaconda setup

    Lake placid was okay. There was still some good moments where you learned a lot about the characters. The crocodile looked sort of CGI but it has Brilliant acting from Bill Pullman and Bridget Fonda. It was really bloody and gore.

    Lake Placid is arguably the most idiotic monster movie to arrive in multiplexes since the stunningly awful Deep Rising slithered in 18 months ago. If there's one thing to be said about this movie, which features a hapless band of humans tangling with a 30-foot crocodile, it's that the film makers are aware that no one in their right mind could possibly take this premise seriously. So director Steve Miner and writer David E. Kelley have constructed the film with their tongues planted in their cheeks. Unfortunately, adding a strong dose of intentional camp to a film doesn't necessarily make it an enjoyable experience. Lake Placid isn't so bad that it's good; it's so bad that it's really bad. Its strange to see big names at the time appear in such shlock but a good paycheck is a worthy cause. Lake Placid just lacks the frills and thrills these kinds of films need.

    more silly than anything else. Characters were pretty entertaining.

    The fact that almost every line is sarcastic does start to wear a little thin after a while, but on the whole this is a great little horror comedy with some cracking dialogue.
