genetically created Anaconda created in a
lab out in the middle of the jungle is
cut in half and regenerates into two
aggressive giant snakes due to some blood
orchid while a mob boss named Murdoch
(John Rhys-Davies) is greedy to get this
blood orchid since it offers great power
so he sends out his troops led by a head
renegade named Eugene (Emil Hostina) to
set out and kill anyone protecting this.
Meanwhile some travellers are stopped in
the jungle and are chased by these giant
serpeants and then held hostage later on
by Eugene and his goons but they all have
a bigger problem as these snakes go to
their hideout eating them one by one.
There's a good discussion between the supporting characters Murdoch and Eugene on their plans to do a
deadly deed where an anaconda is.
There's some good shots on the main characters Amanda and Alex running from an anaconda
in an underground area.
There's some descent shots on the people
running through the woods.
There's a good distant shot on both Murdoch and Eugene running away from an
anaconda with the rest of the people trying
to do something about it along with a fellow named Roland going crazy shooting his
gun towards this serpeant.
We spot a nice discussion between Jackson and Heather along with a good
camera shot on an anaconda staring at
them and then Heather reacting to
some sort of a bite.
There's a good invasion scene with Eugene getting aggressive towards
everyone along with a good moment on Wendy trying to run away and Eugene gunning her down. We spot a
good slow motion close up shot on her
We have a good battle with Jackson against another character with
a good camera shot looking up on him
while he is punching him as well as Eugene shooting him.
There's a good moment with people like Amanda and Jackson in a jeep panicking
while Eugene tries to hitch a
ride and there's struggling moments with
all of this.
There's a good shot on Murdoch injecting
himself with the orchid and then laughing
insanely spinning around with the camera
circling him as well.
Oh we have some cheesy special effects
with the anaconda slithering through the
woods as well as attacking it's prey too
in many spots as it looks a bit
contrived. This is about it folks.
So the bottom line is that
this sequel was the worst
one to date and hopefully the last one
lacking the anaconda's attacking as they
hardly show up at all.
There's of course the typical bad guy
attacks and some corpses too but by all
means this film will not make you jump
out of your seat like in the first one
and the effects are terrible.
The story itself is very slow and you
wonder what we're going to get out of all
this. Well almost nothing as it picks up
a bit quarter way through with the
villains holding the innocent one's in
their shacks until their mob boss shows
up. Whoa big deal.
There's good locations though with the
tall trees in the woods but this is about
the only attraction you will get my
The acting is in
fair shape as lead actress Crystal
Allen (Amanda) shows great aggression and
tons of energy too playing the right
heroic type in the film. She doesn't seem
to lack her performance too much at all.
Linden Ashby (Jackson) was another terrific
performer who was very in your face with
what he had to do and was great showing
his anger and violent behavior when he
needed to do so. He was indeed a
character actor and the best actor
without a doubt. He also shows a good shocked reaction after spotting some
corpses and does well with his emotions
while doing this. He also does a great job freaking out after spotting an incident.
Ana Ularu (Heather) seemed to grab my
attention as well playing the girlfriend
showing a nice mellowness to her part
along with her jumping reactions too when
something suspenseful happens. She reacts very well with a painful reaction while having surgery during one scene of the film.
Emil Hostina (Eugene) really portrayed his
cold blooded and bad ass attitude nicely
and knew how to act violent and use his
gun on people if anyone messed with him.
A true renegade this fellow was.
John Rhys-Davies (Murdoch) was unforgettable
as the head mobster in the film even if
this film was forgettable itself using
his slick words coming out like this
fellow is bad news and not a sane person
to be around at all.
We spot a headless

The music is composed by Peter
Meisner as he composes some nice
screeching effects along with the odd
clanging and good classical music which
seems to work for the plot.
