Storyline

It's been only a couple of years since the deadly encounter with the monstrous saltwater crocodile in Lake Placid (1999), and once more, something horrible lurks beneath the surface of Maine's silent Black Lake. This time, the gruesome death of an employee from the Environmental Protection Agency and a sudden spate of disappearances set in motion a thorough investigation, as Sheriff James Riley and the Fish and Wildlife Agent, Emily, find themselves with their backs to the wall before the tourist season. Now, the hunt for the scaly prehistoric predator is on. Can they stop the savage beast from the depths of Lake Placid? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

While waiting for mama croc to show up, Struthers is startled by a noise. He looks at the source of the noise, then says, "I hate that rabbit". This is an oft-repeated tagline of Yosemite Sam, directed at Bugs Bunny in numerous cartoons. See more »

Goofs

When the crocodile attacks the police patrol boat (after the boat 'hit a rock'), the digitally added splash effect is seen to appear through the unscathed floor, and cut through the Sheriff's legs. See more »

A travesty on so many levels
29 April 2007 | by rbsjrxSee 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!
