This review is from: Lake Placid 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I didnt know there was a sequel to the excellent Lake Placid until I saw Lake Placid 2 listed on the Sky EPG. Genuinely excited, I tuned in, and, wow - what a disappointment.
Virtually everything about this movie seems to be deliberately third rate, the only slight glimmer of character in the script comes in the form of Chloris Leachman who gets out a couple of good lines.
As for the rest of the actors, it would have been better if they had just used cardboard cutouts of the cast from the first movie and dubbed the dialogue on afterwards, and dont get me started on the special effects! (Tip for the producers of this movie - special effects is not an area where "retro" is cool - Ok?).
This isnt even a "so bad its good" movie - its just plain bad. You might be tempted to watch it anyway, but believe me, you'll end up like me thinking its 90 minutes of your life you arent getting back.
