It`s just a crocodile!

Welcome to Maine and Lake Placid. This silence lake in the middle of nowhere has had it`s beaverpopulation redused lately. Other animals nearby the lake has also been redused. This has nothing to do with dumping of chemicals, but a new inhabitant. A prehistoric 30 feet Crocodile has moved in. I`m no fan of monstermovies and movies with mutated animals and such, but this is either kind. Lake Placid is a nonserious movie with a large portion of humor. The crocodile is well done and the movie is entertaining. You don`t get hung up in minor mistakes in movies like this, because the entertainingvalue is all that counts. Lake Placid has some funny characters and a fast killingmachine of a crocodile. This movie is made to entertain and not to win any awards, and I had a good time watching it. The picture is not anamorphic which is a shame, but the sound is great. It also has some exstras but isn`t excactly loaded. Lake Placid gets a 4.
