Mutated Muddle
11 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Another chemically enhanced alligator grows to epic proportions, leading to a series of fatalities that threatens a lakeside development project. The obligatory doubt and denial lead rogue cop Bologna and rookie Brown to first convince the hierarchy that the title beast exists, and then embark on a search and destroy mission to end the mutated monster's path of destruction. Greedy developer Railsback employs his own means, contracting big game hunter Lynch to hunt down the predator, in a bid to secure his financial interests.

Sequels are notorious for being inferior imitations of the original ("Godfather Part II being, arguably, the exception), and this follow-up is a perfect example of why such notoriety exists.

Avoiding the comparisons with the original, this entry suffers from a try-hard script that fails to amuse despite its constant attempts at humour, poorly staged attack scenes, and more fundamentally, absence of a cohesive story, lacking any modicum of momentum or effective continuity. Even the "mean streets" sub theme introduced part way through the picture is poorly conceived and badly handled, only contributing to the malaise.

It's a pity that such a talented cast can't redeem any qualities in this film, because the audience might have expected better, considering the solid cast (Bologna, Wallace-Stone, Lynch, Railsback & Peters). Alas, they make no impression other than to be bystanders to an embarrassing debacle.
