Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It took four screenwriters to cobble this together. That's reasonable. With the death of Ed Wood, it's not possible for any one person to come up with anything this screwy.

...easily the best mainstream release of the summer... an example of first-rate B moviemaking.

I never thought a film about giant snakes that eat people could be this atrociously dull.

At best, it will come as a pleasant surprise to those going in with the lowest of preconceptions. At worst, it offers audiences a chance to get out of the August heat for 90 minutes.

When the snakes do attack, there's not much originality or surprise to their methods. No one gets spun up and down like a yo-yo, or puked back up.

More snakes does not a better movie make.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Due to the film, one has peace of mind in learning that if a companion is swallowed by an anaconda, its digestive process takes so long that it won't eat you too soon.

If you just want to see giant snakes eating people who talk too much and need to die because of sheer stupidity, this movie is for you.

This movie looks like it was no fun to make. It certainly was no fun to watch.

It's a dumb pic, but it does what these type of escapist summer films are supposed to do--provide some silly thrills.

The big snake is back and he's brought along some friends.

This movie features a scene of a snake chasing a monkey, which is more than I dared hope for.

Dwight Little directs this exciting film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

There's some guilty popcorn pleasure to be had from watching beautiful people get digested down into the belly of the beast, but don't expect anything fresh or inventive here.

Film Journal International

As a special-effects extravaganza, it's pretty tepid stuff, but as a jungle potboiler, the movie has just enough campy thrills to keep customers satisfied.

I can appreciate a good B-movie as much as the next guy, but even by the very relaxed standards of B-moviedom, "Anacondas 2" is a rather sad affair.

The kind of sequel that should have gone directly to DVD shelves.
