Plot
Who would’ve thought this franchise would tumble so fast and fall into TV movie hell? The new alligator looks terrible. It isn’t as elaborate as the puppet in the original film and is mostly animated using a 3-D mesh that doesn’t fool the eye; not even at night and under the rain. Lake Placid is far less tactful and much goofier than the original film, and it even takes itself seriously.
Prude souls beware; you get skinny dipping so spontaneous and gratuitous, here, that it makes your jaw drop... repeatedly. With its computer generated gore and its high body count, this is the poor man’s Friday the 13th of giant alligator movies. This one- trick pony is now destined to get increasingly dumber at every sequel. It is the cheap B-movie that the original film refused to be.
We had top notch actors in Part 1, but Part 2 can only afford no names. Their performances aren’t natural and they all seem bored, poorly directed and, at times, uncomfortable with their lines. They do no own their characters who, for the most part, are poorly written, immature, stupid, clichéd and who exist only to die. Avoid this boring movie if you can. It isn’t the shadow of its predecessor.
