Biologist Nathan Bickerman (Colin Ferguson), his wife and young son move into the house of his late Aunt, who had been feeding those crocodiles in the previous movie. Of course, the son quickly "befriends" the new catch of young crocodiles and starts feeding them. Then, the movie skips ahead to three years and by this time the reptiles have gotten far bigger than is plausible. There's also Michael Ironside as the local sheriff, who
gets eaten when his car is pulled into the lake, and Yancy Butler (MANN & MACHINE) who is horribly, horribly miscast as the crazed hunter intent on a new trophy.
I'm normally one for liking "Rampaging animal" movies but after the second PLACID movie I was very reluctant to watch this. I don't know which I disliked more-- the poor casting choices (Colin Ferguson, who is so great on EUREKA, blows here) or the cartoony and repetitive CGI effects of the crocodiles. While I did enjoy the very first theatrical movie it should never have spawned a franchise. Part 3 is a croc.
