Anacondas is the second of the anaconda films,but is not a sequel to
the original.it is a stand alone film,and a fairly decent effort.in
fact, i thought it was better than the first one.there are no cast
members from the original film.i think the film takes a more serious
tone than its predecessor with less campy elements.The action scenes
are much more plentiful and intense.and instead of just one
anaconda,there are several,hence the title.there is an ensemble
cast,which are all competent,given the material.there an eclectic
character mix here ranging from the likable to the not so likable and
the completely hate inspiring.the motivations of the characters are
well fleshed out,always a good thing.the film itself delves into the
territory of implausibility at times,but there would be no movie
otherwise.Entertaining,fast paced with some thrilling sequences,combine
to make Anacondas a worthwhile experience.just don't expect anything
too deep. 3.5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars This is Why We Go to the Movies Jan. 9 2005
By L. Mintah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Films like Anacondas 2: Hunt for the Blood Orchid are why we go to the movies. To escape. To forget our problems. Anacondas does not disappoint. I was enthralled from the moment I pushed play on my DVD player.

The filmography is impressive. There are great panoramic shots of jungles and nice shots of the full moon that gave me chills. The score of native music lends to the mood of being lost in the jungle with a maniac and giant anacondas.

The story is about a group who goes to Borneo to seek rare specimens of the Blood Orchid. These researchers believe the Blood Orchid has chemical properties that can extend a cell's lifespan, thus prolonging life. The expedition does not go as planned, and our friends are soon fighting for their lives.

The little monkey, Kong, is so cute. He is a terrific actor. The director did really well to focus on him so much. The monkey's facial expressions, chattering, his toting goods, and his obvious emotion should win him Best Supporting Monkey. He lent a great deal to the film.

The DVD extras have deleted scenes, trailers, and a featurette on how they made the anaconda effects as well as how the movie was made. The director and some of the actors speak about the making of the film.

I think we could have seen more snakes. I just wanted one final, big showdown with the anacondas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silly but loads of fun Jan. 8 2005
By Ratcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As dumb as it is, you'll no doubt be highly entertained by Anacondas, the far superior sequel to the 1997 original. This time around it's the greedy co-orperate types who are the real snakes, the reptiles are bigger and scarier, the direction darker and more complex and the fun level higher.

I would have liked to have seen more people gobbled up but it's mighty fine, completely harmless fun for what it is. Anyone judging Anacondas as anything other than popcorn fare doesn't deserve to have their opinion listened to.

4.0 out of 5 stars SSSSSSSSnakes, Snakes Everwhere! Nov. 7 2004
By rhmoviemogal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The first rule of thumb with most nature-run-amok pictures is they have very little logic, but try to over explain itself to justify its star critter. Lucky for us, this is a sequel, so we aren't bothered by such things. A crew sets out to find a rare flower, but find themelves in a real snake pit of trouble. Again, like most sequels this one has to be bigger, and more. So, they are faced with a larger snake, or should I say snakes. They are everywhere! Lots of action, and plenty of goo and gore make this adventure fun. Still there are some attempts to overexplain things to manufacture a plot. But who needs a plot? Come on people! This is not 'Passion.' It's a snake movie. It is suppossed to not make any sense. Sit back, eat popcorn and enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Actually better than the first "Anaconda". Hissss! Dec 25 2004
By Matthew King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The first "Anaconda" featured a crew of filmmakers venturing deep into the Amazon to shoot a documentary. That movie became notable due to the presence of on-the-rise actors like Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson. But Anaconda was far from a good movie, no matter who was in it. "Anacondas: Hunt for the blood Orchid" is a sequel in-name-only that ventures into much of the same territory as the first one. A group of medical researchers in NYC believe they have found a way to prolong life. In order to create this revolutionary chemical, they need to hunt for the "Blood Orchid", which blooms every 7 years. The crew must head into the jungles of Borneo and grab the orchid before it again lays to rest.

The first thing I noticed while being introduced to this no-name cast of characters was how much they seemed to be attempting to recreate the crew of the original movie. You have a Spanish woman playing the JLo role, a laid-back beach dude playing the Owen Wilson role and an inner-city kid playing the Ice Cube role. It's almost as though they wanted the same people but the producers were obviously unable to coerce any of the original cast members to come back for a sequel. I kind of knew I was in for a bit of pain when from the get-go none of the characters appealed to me. Worst was the Ice Cube wannabe. His character is hands-down one of the most annoying I've ever come across. He kept uttering lines like "Holmes", "Aiiight" "You da bomb". Aside from reinforcing urban African-American stereotypes to the Nth degree his character served absolutely no purpose. The only truly likeable character in this one was the little pet monkey. That tells you something.

But while I couldn't stand the cast, what made this movie watcheable was the terrific use of set locales. This movie has amazing jungle scenery the whole way through. Whereas in the first Anaconda the entire movie took place aboard a raft while the crew wafted through the Amazon's canal, here the characters get off the boat and venture deep into the thick bushes of the jungle. They come across a whole slew of eye-popping sites. For this reason, along with better scenes of suspense, I found this "Anaconda" to be slightly better than its predecessor. Still when all is said and done this movie had me rooting for the snakes. Not a good thing...

5.0 out of 5 stars Much fun Dec 10 2004
By Frankie Dude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Anacondas does exactly what is says on the tin. Anyone going to see or renting Anacondas expecting greatness does not deserve to be reviewing the movie.

It was fun, unpretentious and it entertained me. That's all I expected it to do and I did the job well. I will certainly buy this DVD when it comes out.

At the very least, you cannot disagree that it is better than the rather flat original.
