Alligator 2: The Mutation Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Not so much a sequel to the [[Performer~P110025~John Sayles~johnsayles]]-scripted [[Feature~V1677~Alligator~alligator]] as a shoddy remake, this sophomoric low-budget effort plays like a bad TV movie about a swamp-dwelling alligator mutated to monstrous size by toxic waste, munching on the screaming residents of a lakefront community. The naughty polluter who caused this mutation is the property developer himself ([[Performer~P107424~Steve Railsback~steverailsback]], playing such a cookie-cutter villain that he might as well have a "BAD GUY" sign around his neck). An embarrassed [[Performer~P7154~Joseph Bologna~josephbologna]] plays the cop investigating the mutilation murders; an equally-ashamed [[Performer~P68458~Dee Wallace Stone~deewallace]] plays the scientist assisting him, who is conveniently married to him as well. In an attempt to remedy the situation, a big-game hunter ([[Performer~P43946~Richard Lynch~richardlynch]]) is called in to bag the beast. When his efforts fail, it's left to [[Performer~P7154~Bologna~josephbologna]] to pick up the pieces -- literally -- and take charge of the situation when the big reptile decides to take in the grand opening of the local amusement park. From a nonsensical script to cheesy special effects that make the beast look like a pool toy, this film shows none of the cynical charm and sly wit that made [[Feature~V1677~Alligator~alligator]] so enjoyable. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
