Clearly a bottom-feeder.

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

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

'There's a way in. There's a way out.' He's right. It's behind you, right below the sign that says Exit. Just follow the stampede.

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.

The sequel might have the formula down, but it lacks everything that made Anaconda fun.
August 27, 2004
After watching this film you feel that you've aged a thousand years.

Coiled in clich 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.

The supersize snakes don't even make an appearance until the movie's midway point -- and when they do, appalling special effects render them merely risible.

Anaconda is the Citizen Kane of giant snake movies. Anacondas is more like the Gigli of giant snake movies, only slightly better because at least Ben Affleck's not in it.

The refined taste insists on risibly bad, on hysterically bad, on poke-your-seatmate- in-the-ribs bad, and this falls well short of that hallowed mark -- it's just routinely bad.

Director Dwight Little and a laundry list of writers (among them Michigan-born Jim Cash) simply deliver a generic hungry snake movie, and on those terms, Anacondas can be kind of fun.

A lot better than a slapped-together sequel to a campy original has any right to be.
August 27, 2004
I've seen Anaconda, and, senator, Anacondas is no Anaconda.

Where the first movie had a fragrant odor, the smell, say, of Lysol sprayed in a gas station bathroom, Anacondas actually stinks.

The snakes may be longer this time, but Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid comes up short on thrills.
August 26, 2004
There's no J. Lo this time, no Ice Cube, no Jon Voight, no Owen Wilson.

A programmer that once upon a time would have played on the bottom half of double bills, Anacondas has no pretensions and gets its little job done effectively, providing some small-scale laughs and chills for the late summer season.
