A game warden moves his family to Lake Placid, once the site of deadly crocodile attacks. Locals assure him the crocs are gone, but his mischievous young son finds a few baby crocs and begins feeding them. They quickly grow into very big adults and start attacking the game warden's family and nearby town.
Cast: Michael Ironside, Colin Ferguson, Yancy Butler, Kirsty Mitchell, Kacey Barnfield and Jordan Grehs
Directed By: G.E Furst
Although less boring than the first sequel, nothing new is brought to the table here. A bit of nudity, a few brainless girls and wannabe macho lads running and splashing around until the crocodiles are sick of their whining and chomps them up for dinner, which probably being the best part of the movie for me as I just wanted them to shut up. There is one or two funny moments, but it’s a quick giggle then forgettable, and for the easily scared a few little jumpy moments now and then.
Its saving grace is that it is ok paced, and doesn’t over shoot what its trying to be, Director G. Furst understanding Lake Placid 3’s place in the movie/television world, and also Michael Ironside showing off his acting experience amongst a lot of newcomers.
The movie left me feeling so tired and fed up I had not even the energy to find a 'pick-me-up' movie. Maybe a decent time filler for hangover Sundays, or even fans of the cheap B-movie experience that really don’t mind a bit of cheese, other than that no treats in this one to look forward too …avoid like the plague!
