During the opening scene, the ecologist is sitting in the rear of the boat hanging over the right side to take a sample. However, during the insert of the crocodiles POV from underwater, the ecologist appears to be leaning over the LEFT side of the boat. By the time the crocodile strikes, the ecologist is again hanging over the right side of the boat. See more »

A travesty on so many levels
29 April 2007 | by (Houston, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I've come to expect very little out of the SciFi channel's made for TV movies, but this ranks tight alongside of "Babylon 5: Legend of the Rangers" as am egregious example of how SciFi's clueless network suits can prostitute a great work with an appallingly bad sequel.

I'm a great fan of the original "Lake Placid". David E. Kelly's writing in the original is among the sharpest of any film in memory. It had a delightfully witty script and excellent performances by talented actors. The characters were well textured without a stereotype among them.

By comparison, the script of this film is drek. Thre is almost no wit evident. It's trite and formulaic. The characters are all 2-dimensional stereotypes from central casting. The "special" effects were everything I've come to expect from SciFi channel movies - ham-fisted and amateurish.

I might have given this film a rating of 2 or 3, but for potentially tainting the reputation of the original, I give it a 1 - but only because there's no option to give it a zero!
