group of scientists keep an anaconda in a lab by
testing it with serum to try to cure an illness
but yet an idiotic greedy millionaire named
Murdoch (John Rhys-Davies) seemed to have
provoked this snake as it managed to kill many of
the scientists there along with escaping in a
forestry area by going to a barn near a farmland.
This drug the scientists gave to the snake causes
it's tail to grow sharp as it stabs people to
death before eating these people and a roughneck
named Hammett (David Hasselhoff) is sent on a
mission to try and capure it alive while trying
to make out to kill it with some other soldiers
lead by Amanda (Crystal Allen) and Nick (Patrick
Regis) as they don't seem to see eye to eye with
Hammett and slowly their soldiers become the
snake's next prey along with it breeding too
which can make Hammett very rich while trying to
capture this fine creature and returning it to
There's a good stern discussion with the character Murdoch towards Captain Grozny in
a labratory as well as the goin on's there. We
also have a good idiotic moment with Murdoch flashing a light on an anaconda behind a thick
glass wall at the labratory with all hell
breaking loose which looked suspenseful.
There's a good presence by Hammett causing
problems at a bar and being attacked by two goons while he tries to talk
on his cell phone which almost seemed well
done in a comedy fashion but yet it needed a
bit more improvement.
Many good camera shots on certain characters acting in a frenzy by trying to shoot
an anaconda around a barn with some interesting
There's also alot of good shots on the main characters
running through the woods and firing their
weapons with a cheesy CGI effect on the anaconda
We have a good camera shot looking sideways on a woman acting in pain with her severed ankle
and then a good shot on her fearsome expression
with a shot on the anaconda about to swallow her
A nice panting moment with the main character Amanda pressing
herself against a tree next to the anaconda
staring at her. A good low budget effect there.
Hammett shows a good stern reaction with
Nick about a situation when the anaconda is
swimming in a river and what to do.
Many nice shots on the characters looking around an old
hallway of a countrytype lodge and shooting
anything that moves.
There's a great struggling reaction on Nick choking
out his words towards Amanda with her
getting upset while he's being squeezed to death
by the anaconda.
A nice nasty action with Hammett pointing
a gun towards Amanda and demanding her to do what
A nice fighting scene between the both of them as
well as Amanda walking away from the
lodge and Hammet trying to struggle
on the ground to reach for a timebomb before it explodes.
Bottom line is that this is the second
worst one in all of the
flicks made on a low budget with cheesy effects
on the snake as some of it looked fun and some of
it looked phony. We've seen many bad made for
cable movies and this is one of them. Yet it
could be a fun party flick but the show looks too
campy to be frightening.
It doesn't really go anywhere and they try to
make it different this time by bringing an
anaconda near a country type forest area escaping
from a science lab than in a deserted jungle as
the chemistry isn't believeable at all. If you're
in the mood for an action horror cheesy monster
flick you might be entertained but it looks like
a ripoff to those old fashioned drive in one's.
The acting is well.... not bad for
a bad movie like this. Former TV star and
heartthrob David Hasselhoff (Hammet) was never
that special with his performances in shows (Not
saying he's terrible) but seems the same all the
time but this time he has improved by playing a
roughneck in the film with his good stern
attitude and sly actions. He does a nice job by instructing everyone what to do in order to
try and capture the anaconda. He certainly shows good moments with his sneering reactions towards others like when he gets demanding at someone or pointing a rifle at them which came off impressively.
Lead actress Crystal Allen (Amanda) played a good
part for her role using tons of energy and really
picking up the pace along with good aggressive
and tense actions when needed along with her
emotional fears too. She does well with her panting while trying to struggle against the anaconda's.
Rhys-Davies (Murdoch) does his role impressively
playing a typical idiotic greedy one in the film
which you wouldn't want to deal with unless you
want complications and issues in your life. He
brought his actions clear on that. Good stuff.
Anthony Green really does well as his
dimwitted assistant and shows a nice cowardly
attitude with his part in it.
Patrick Regis (Nick) really brought his part to
life as a tough combat soldier in the flick as he
showed a nice part in what he had to do. He also does well choking his words out while being squeezed by an anaconda in which he permed this at a nice intense and anxious pace.
Numerous violent bloodsheds of
bodies after being attacked by the anaconda
The anaconda's sharp tail impales many victims
A head is bitten off with blood gushing out
A person's leg is badly severed with a bones
Meisner really tried his best to compose the
music as if it was really by an orchestral band
with the high and low violin sounds but you can
tell it's made on a synthesizer but it was nice
to listen to if you're in the mood for a low
budhet made for cable like this one as he puts in
the susepnseful actions when needed too as well
as the odd high and low rumbling sounds of a
