A morass of cliches, contradictions and clumsy attempts at suspense.

Voight's performance alone is absurd enough to merit the film a look.

Anaconda is about a snake that eats everybody. That about says it all.

Scary, this movie isn't. The faux serpent, albeit an impressive creature, looks wholly unrealistic as it zips through water and air like a Saturday morning cartoon character.

No single movie in the annals of cheesy aquatic flicks fashioned after Jaws--we're talking Orca, Killer Fish, Tentacles and Jaws 2, 3 and 4--has ever provided more unintentional laughs than Anaconda.

Anaconda is such a classic combination of feckless dramaturgy and rampant excess that giving way to giggles is the only sane response.

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!

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.

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.
January 1, 2000
Anaconda unfolds with all the on-the-nose deliberateness of a direct-to-video cheesefest that takes itself way too seriously.

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.'

Anaconda is an uninspired monster movie about, you guessed it, a giant anaconda.
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.
January 1, 2000
A trashily entertaining reptilian version of Jaws set in the steaming heart of the Amazon rain forest.
January 1, 2000
An intelligently stupid creature flick, not to mention one hell of an enjoyable one.
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.
