This is one insane movie! Right from the start
you are on the edge of your seat and it just keeps getting more and
more insane as it plays out. Now you guys are lucky that I sat
through this one as I HATE snakes and I also am not a fan of taking
off and landing in a plane, some part of me believes firmly that a
huge hunk oí metal cannot stay up in the air, despite the fact that
science and aeronautical engineering has proved me wrong for some
Samuel L Jackson stars in this one as the FBI
agent who has to protect an important witness for the prosecution
against a big time bad guy. Flying him from Hawaii to Los Angeles
for the trial, they donít know that hundreds of snakes have been
smuggled onto the plane that have been dosed with a pheromone that
makes them attack.
Donít worry I am sure that Iíve not wrecked
anything for you with that, unless you simply did not read the title
of the DVD. And even if I have then I would still say that you have
to watch this move. Itís a lot of laughs the whole way through and
if you are into B grade movies then you will love it. I certainly
did, the whole flick really was a no brainer the whole way through,
you didnít have to think too much and got a few really good jumps
along the way.
Iíd stick to the whole B grade horror premise
though some might argue that the presence of Jackson elevates it
somewhat above that. I disagree totally. Jackson plays his part with
relish and clearly appears to be having a hell of a lot of fun
making this flick, as do the rest of the cast.
The movie looks great on DVD, the only argument
at times is that the CG snakes are not always convincing, however
the fast pace of the movie more than makes up for it. The extras on
the disc are plentiful and the blooper reel whilst contrived at
times is amusing. The extended deleted scenes come accompanied by
some very candid explanations as to why they did not make the final
If you are after a fun escape from reality, then
you really need to get this flick. Fast paced with a load of tongue
in cheek, itís a great diversion that will keep you laughing for
some time. Also, did I mention, it has snakes?
