I must admit upfront that I'm not a huge fan of the original Lake Placid. It was one of those movies that had stuff I did enjoy, but the film as a whole just never clicked with me. Not saying I thought it was a bad movie - just one that left me feeling like I could take it or leave it. As for this vastly inferior follow-up that Sony and the Sci-Fi Channel have thrust upon us, I'd much prefer to leave it. Though I've got a soft spot for movies about killer alligators and crocodiles, had I not been committed to reviewing Lake Placid 2 for this website, I probably would have turned this one off about the third time someone climbed up a tree to escape a crocodile.
