I actually enjoyed this direct to DVD movie. The acting is not great, the plot is fairly recycled, and the CG is pretty crappy, especially considering they could have used REAL snakes for some of the shots and got the job done. But overall, It amused me enough that I would, and did, re-watch it. The chemistry between the main characters was plausible enough, and the story at least made sense, which is not alway the case for these SyFy original movies.
I have mixed feelings. I guess it s okay for it being a low-budget horror film. You will keep looking around for snakes while you watch it.
Killer snakes with extra powerful venom. MAMA MIA! Who would have funked it? Vipers isn't quite cheesy enough to be amazing, nor is it good enough to be an essential viewing. There are some nice kill scenes, with the snakes being more like piranhas as they strip the flesh from their victims bones. We also get some classic lines such as "Homeland Security? This isn't terrorism, these are snakes." Reid is good in these kinds of films, and at least she's more believable here than in her miscast role in Alone in the Dark. The CGI passes the quality control level for a film of this type. Just a bit too samey and not enough stupidity.
