Intentional low camp always seems wrong unless it's very funny; in trash, one wants clumsiness, even a certain tackiness, and this movie has the production values and the high-tech fluency of a much bigger movie.

All those CGI snakes can be quite shudder-inducing. But there is also something cheerfully ridiculous in the way the film switches to rubber snakes for hand-to-hand combat.

Has the thinnest imaginable premise (see the title) and yet manages to be more fun than most big-budget summer blockbusters.

Ends up just being a fairly good Bad Movie.

All very well, but it is by no means the giddy delight that the fans hoped for.

Jackson's unflinching eyes carry this B-movie gem, a film that turns out to be everything it, and a legion of online fans, said it would be.

Snakes plus a plane plus a year of Internet hype do not a blockbuster make.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

The action is more repetitive than clever (snakes slide and bite, victims clutch wounds and gasp).

Make no mistake, this movie is trash, but it's meant to be, and I'd be lying if I said it wasn't also a lot of fun.

[A] blast for anyone who appreciates scares, laughs and all-out entertainment in their summer flicks.

Snakes on a Plane has an irresistible title and an impressive promotional campaign -- but pitches aren't plots, and marketing isn't moviemaking.

Pretty fun and takes advantage of its goofy premise in every way it can ... [but] I really don't envy the position this movie found itself in.

Imagine if you will that a monstrous, CGI-sized jumbo python has squeezed together Airport and Alligator. What you'd then have is Snakes on a Plane.

The movie isn't just mediocre -- it's profoundly mediocre.

...mostly delivers what the title promises and the anticipation hoped for...mostly.

Put simply, this is quite possibly the most fun you'll have in the cinema all year. If you like the title, you'll love the film. Highly recommended.

Snakes was the best instantly disposable cinematic event I've attended since Bride of Chucky was launched on an unsuspecting world eight years ago.

This kind of film should be like a porno: Don't even bother trying to come up with a plot, just cut to the money shot.

The movie plays to every expectation the viewer might have -- the more absurd, the better. In this regard, it doesn't miss a trick.

This repitilian horror thriller is the stuff of which nightmares are made.
