The "wild turkey" walks up to the electric fence "gobbling." First of all, it's not a wild turkey. It's a heritage breed turkey, possibly a Bourbon Red. If it was wild, it would be an Eastern Wild Turkey. It is definitely not. Second, "gobbling," is only done by (male) Tom turkeys. The turkey they use, is a hen. Hens don't gobble. They make a high pitched yelping sound. Hens are seldom seen alone. Third, if a large predator like a croc were close by, the hen would be nowhere to be seen, much less hanging out on the ground. The boy would have frightened her away, much less the croc. See more »
It is, by no means, a movie I would refer to as "great", but, compared to the other "Lake Placid" sequels, this is, indeed, a significant improvement.
I liked the original with Jane Fonda; that's why I kept watching the sequels, but, up until now, the sequels have been simply horrendous. Perhaps, that's the reason why I actually liked this one; it was a significant upgrade from the previous sequels.
Yancy Butler was, of course, the highlight of the movie. I don't think it would've been worth watching without her.
I thought the main downside was the fact that the movie lacked the subtlety of the original. This one was clearly going for more action and more gore. And that was a mistake if you ask me.
Also, I'm not sure why they called it "The Final Chapter" as the ending suggests a potential sequel.
To summarize: A below-average movie if viewed by itself. If, however, you watch it having seen other "Lake Placid" sequels, you will be pleased to find that this is basically the only sequel that's watchable.
