The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

Rumor of a lake creature killing people in a quiet little town in Maine causes four unlikely people to work together to discover what they are up against. A local sheriff, Dept. of Game and Wildlife officer, scientist, and eccentric alligator expert sarcastically interact and cross paths with a feisty old woman while tracking down a beast that is much more than they could ever have imagined.
