Well, what could I summarize from this movie? Hemm, I don’t usually do this at the starting of the review but let’s just do it this once. It was a big hype on the Internet. Everyone is talking about the movie where you have Samuel L. Jackson on the screen. Who would not have known him. With the amount of big movies he appears in.
Not to even mention the title of the movie. Yes, it sounds cheesy to me as in… right.. it’s obvious snakes on a plane. The poster is totally out. It’s as if it’s some “I NEED HELP FUNDING” logo. The ones with people’s face on the poster make Samuel L. Jackson look like a psycho killer.
Yes, you can tell how 1 year of hype and a name of a big star can bring a movie that far. Who says a movie need to be totally good? As long as it have some famous star, okay okay kinda acting any B grade movie can make it to the top. When everyone goes “woooooooo… waaaaaaaaa”. I’m not saying the movie is bad. Just I think it doesn’t deserve the hype and acclaimed they receive.
I think the flim setting, the flim quality and the props of this movie is quite B grade compare to the other movies seen. Well… but let’s not be too picky, the movie started of when Sean Jones (Nathan Philips) witness a murdering scene. Yeap, one of those big shot mafia person, Eddie Lee.
Sean manage to escape and goes back to his apartment. Which in where, he is now a subject to be removed from the earths surface. Yes, asassins is on his butt and Neville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson), a FBI agent is set to save him and bring him to Los Angeles to testify against Eddie.
Claire Miller (Juliana Margulies) is the air stewardess in charge and is flying for her last time was upset and furious when Sean and Neville wasup on board last minute and screw up their arrangements. Sean and Neville occupy the whole first class and everyone else was being placed at the economy class section.
There were some characters which from the start you know they won’t die thing. Which includes a bitchy woman, Mercedes Harbont (Rachel Blancard) and her dog. I still wonder how they get the dog on board. A famous singer Three G (Flex Alexander) and the two little kiddo.
Just when they think the plane was safe and they could escort Sean perfectly to LA.. problem starts to arise when they are hanging in the mid air. A box of poisonious snakes were released. The best part, the flowers that they got as a token of appriciation for flying with the airlines is being sprayed with some female snake hormones smell (something like that) which will cause all the snakes to go crazy!
That is when all snakes are falling of here and there.. killing people one by one… Yes, people died in an ugly way. Swollen, foam starts to drool out and well.. just ugly. I felt pain especially for one passanger when the snake just jumps out from the toilet bowl and bit the guy’s dick. Ouch… double ouch!
But well, some girls manage to get the big “O” with the snake before dying. Ah.. she couldn’t ask for more! But I was somehow amazed. The whole plane have snakes falling here and there and everwhere… including the pilots cabin. The only place with no snakes falling down was the first class section. Which sounds so pathethic.
How could this happen! I mean, if everywhere is flooded by snakes, what makes the first class so special that even the pilot’s cabin didn’t have that privilege?
The ending… obviously predictable. Sean will never die as good people never dies. Neville… obviously won’t die too.. or else who will be dating with the sorta so call lead actress? The two little kiddos? They surely won’t die. Others were being attacked by like 4-5 snakes while they oni have one snake bitting them.
Overall, I think it was a simple story with lots of loop holes, which includes why the snakes were not on the first class section. Then it goes on to.. the snakes goes crazy over the flowers as it has this smell that has been circulating in the plane that makes the snakes goes boinkers. And in one scene.. you can see this snake was busy curling at the flowers. When Neville knows about that, why don’t he just throw the flowers to a side and let them all curl up?
I just think the total thought over process is bad. From the production to the setting was cheap except for maybe Samuel L. Jackson’s fees. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an entertaining and exciting movie to look at. Better still if you like to see people die in an ugly way. Lots of surprise frights here and there. Just… sigh… just… ah.. never mind… watch it.
