I see so many reviews calling this the worst movie ever; come on people lighten up. Is Lake Placid 2 a bad movie? Hell yeah, but it's also a lot of fun. The cast and crew knew the kind of movie they were making and make a B-movie that isn't meant to be taken seriously. All the comedy and idiotic moments are intentional.
Anybody who has read my reviews knows I'm not the biggest fan of CGI; I don't like and I probably never will. But the CGI in Lake Placid 2 is the best. And by best I mean worst. It's always easy to spot the CGI. Unless used very little you can always spot it and that sort of takes me out of the movie, but here the CGI is so fake looking it just makes the movie more fun. The Crocodiles are CGI and they look like something from Playstation. And the CGI gore also looks like something you would see playing Playstation.
Remember those old super low budget movies where they would put a guy a monsters suit and have him run around chasing people? Well Lake Placid 2 is sort of like that only with the CGI. Every time one of the Crocodiles appears on screen it's damn hysterical. Normally I hate CGI, but in this case I loved it since it really makes the movie even funnier.
The screenplay was written by Todd Hurvitz & Howie Miller and yeah it was a silly screenplay filled with characters saying and doing the dumbest of things.Read more ›
Once again were back at the quaint Maine setting and the serene lake where the first film took place. John Schneider is Sheriff Riley, living with his teenaged son Scott (Chad Collins). I have to say that Schneider looks very good. With his hair longer, he looks almost as young as he did in his Dukes of Hazzard days, and much younger than he did in Smallville. Unfortunately Schneider seems to know he's in a bit of a clunker here and doesn't generate a lot of electricity for a guy in the lead role.
The plot in Lake Placid is pretty identical to the first film with just new characters: Small town sheriff, cute co-star Emily(Lefleur) who is an agent of the Fish & Wildlife department, and another crazy old hag. This time its scary looking Cloris Leachman playing Sadie Bickerman, the sister of Betty White's character from the original film. With two Mary Tyler Moore show alums used so far, who's on tap for Lake Placid 3, Valerie Harper?
Anyway, after the first crocodile attack, Riley mobilizes his, um, deputy to begin a search of the lake along with Emily who is apparently an old flame but that's never complexly explained. Their search is interrupted by the appearance of a big game hunter named Struthers and his assistant Ahmad who've come to kill the beast.Read more ›
This movie is so blatantly made for TV that it reeks of all that is bad with sequels made for that medium. The only difference between that and this is that here they can offer a bit of T & A to spark interest. But all of that is predictable and uninteresting. As I watched two nubile young wannabe actresses (one of which offers the worst reading of written dialogue that I can recall), I felt like the croc featured in this film was taking over for Jason Voorhees, attempting to seek retribution and slutty teens involved in or preparing for sex.
The film begins with a huge gross out moment as the assistant to an EPA agent gets his arm bitten off and then his other are left behind in the pair's boat. The local sheriff, played well by actor John Schneider, is in the midst of cardboard cutout problems with his for the summer son (the child of divorced parents) when he gets a call to come in. When he arrives, he is confronted with the small amount of remains from the attack.
Along with his ex-girlfriend and game warden Emily (Sarah Lefleur) the trio set out to see what exactly is in the Maine lake nearby. Though uneaten, they do get into a confrontation with the croc resulting in his munching down their boat and them narrowly escaping to the shore.Read more ›

Lake Placid 2 doesn't have the same story as Lake Placid 3 which is good. As the other movies the people are stalked by the giant Alligator who never stops the chase. Read morePublished 3 months ago by JMK
