A trashily entertaining reptilian version of Jaws set in the steaming heart of the Amazon rain forest.

Anaconda is trying to be a Jaws for the '90s, but, like last year's The Ghost and the Darkness, it falls short in several key areas.

It's a slick, scary, funny Creature Feature, beautifully photographed and splendidly acted in high adventure style.

An opening title informs us that anacondas will sometimes regurgitate their victims, just to have the pleasure of devouring them again: Yes, friends, prepare for the awesome spectacle of a vomiting giant serpent!

As for the creature who plays the title role, it's lean, it's mean, and it has a delightful habit of spitting up its partially digested prey.
January 1, 2000
The set-ups for each snake attack are so blatantly telegraphed that there's little tension, and the snake itself is so obviously computer generated that instead of inspiring fear, we end up snooping for the metaphorical strings that hold this thing aloft.

Anaconda is an uninspired monster movie about, you guessed it, a giant anaconda.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The special effects are stunning, as is Jon Voight's memorable performance as the sneering, evil adventurer, whose obsessive calling has transgressed from the priesthood to anaconda hunting.

I was disappointed.

One thing that can be said for the film, it does have a high energy level and lots of action, even if it is all preposterous.

Fans of the horror genre may be tempted to check out Anaconda. Don't.

Charmless, unfrightening, and even devoid of the requisite gratuitous nudity, Anaconda just plain bites.

It's been quite awhile since we've had a good old-fashioned monster movie. And apparently it's going to be quite awhile longer.

It isn't art, but it'll crush your bones.

Anaconda unfolds with all the on-the-nose deliberateness of a direct-to-video cheesefest that takes itself way too seriously.

January 1, 2000
The anaconda effects bring out the worst in the recent computer-morphing technology. In wide shots, when the anaconda slithers and coils at terrifying speed, it looks like an animated cartoon.
January 1, 2000
To be honest, this is a one-star movie, but I'm granting it an extra star because it made my face hurt from laughing.

as stupid as movies nowadays come

Anaconda is simplistic, and could have used more of its monster, but it delivers.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 1, 2000
can best be summed up by a line delivered midway by Lopez without the slightest bit of irony: 'This film was supposed to be my big break, and now it's turned into a disaster.'
