Snakes on a Plane

Snake on the Plane

Snakes on a Plane

SNAKES slithering on a plane is not all that you get actually; the film also has Samuel L. Jackson doing his usual (but likeable) tough and cool guy act complete with cussing.

Like all other monster-themed films, the action begins after a B-grade actor who happens to be playing the villain (Byron Lawson doing a Bruce Lee impersonation as kingpin Eddie Kim) does something really bad. For this film, he kills a lawyer at a deserted part of Hawaii, only to be witnessed by one Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips).

Before you can say check in, Jones is coerced to become the key witness in a case against Kim and is soon flying first class to Los Angeles accompanied by two agents. Naturally, there is a group of people on the plane that audience could immediately identify as those who will survive the snakes' assault and those who won't.

The film does not pretend to be anything other than what it is; the snakes do take a bite at every opportunity regardless of age, race and sex. At least snakes are not prejudiced, eh? It may also be horrible watching the people go through some horrible deaths, especially if you are afraid of snakes, but there's fun to be had too.

The characters spew really funny lines at the most inopportune moment that one is not really sure whether to laugh or grimace at the scene. Then again, that is usually the case with thrillers of this sort.

So if you are game for a little horror and a lot of fun, this is the movie you have been waiting for.
