Picks up pretty terrifying momentum once the jungle snakes get an urge to chow down on these humans, even if everyone on the menu is on the lean side

Despite a script that borders on banality ... and Strickland's sometimes distracting emoting, director Little and director of photography Stephen F. Windon do an exceptional job of creating tension.

Surprisingly, Anacondas turns out to be much more entertaining than it has any right to be.

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

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.

It's one of those 'I-can't-believe- I'm-enjoying-this' kind of things.

Wisely prods not only ordinary phobias about big, bad serpents but also universal terrors of the dark, of narrow spaces, of drowning, of falling, of spiders and much more.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's not particularly ingenuous, the acting is only serviceable, the killer snakes have adapted most of their scariest riffs from the star of Jaws, but it's a species of low-grade fun that really does appeal to the whole family.

Coiled in cliché it may be, but the film offers a reasonably good time for audiences, and it boasts a few cast members with promise, both human and primate.

A lot better than a slapped-together sequel to a campy original has any right to be.

August 27, 2004
A scary, fun, fast and efficient B-movie that crushes such bloated would-be blockbusters as 'Van Helsing' and 'AVP' in its CGI coils.
| Original Score: 3/4

Boxoffice Magazine

It's a bit more conscious of the fact that it's a bad B-movie, so it goes along with it, which makes for a lot of fun and a noisy audience laughing both with and at the filmmaker's liberal use of genre clichés.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Yet another film bashing corporations, Anacondas does a reasonably good job with chills and humor from material that's same ol'.

Part jungle adventure, part horror flick, Anacondas succeeds despite its lack of a big star, notable director or good idea.
