Lake Placid 2 is probably as borderline retarded as anyone could reasonably expect a sequel to Lake Placid would be. Basically, this is a Sci-Fi Channel movie with a franchise name attached to it. The damn thing could have been called Dino Croc and nobody would have noticed the difference. You get pretty much what you expect from movies of this sort; lousy visual effects, a few token breasts thrown in for the sixth graders who talked dad into renting it, a paper thin plot, and actors looking to make a quick buck. The sad part of all this is that Cloris Leachman's Sadie Bickerman is more well-developed than Betty White's crazy old bat in the original film. If you're in the mood to watch a giant croc tear shit up, go rent Rogue, because LP2 manages to even fuck up the gore. Oh sure, there are trademark shots of missing arms, and a nice decapitation of one REALLY annoying character towards the end, but it's all done in such a poor, haphazard manner that I didn't really give a shit. When the crocs appeared to me to be Colorforms attached to the print, I knew I was in for a looooong movie. Sure, animal attack film aficionados typically don't care how bad a movie is as long as it features a few animal attacks, but this is just garbage.
