4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good...! April 30 2007
By D. Landry TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
You might think that the title leaves you with not much to discover about the story line, but don't be fooled, this movie is quite entertaining! Yes of course there are snakes on the plane, but why are they there? And how do people deal with this fact? These are questions that will be answered only by watching the movie. The special effects are quite good also. It will probably not make the movie of the year, but by all means, it's worth watching just the same. I know I enjoyed it even though this is not normally my type of movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly overdone but extremely fun to watch!, June 24 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
When I first heard of Snakes on a Plane, I went: "Oh man, this is going to suck!". Then I heard Samuel L. Jackson is going to be in it, and I went: "Hmm, might be worth a watch because I enjoy watching him. But I still thought it would be lame, but boy, this movie crawled up my seat and bit me hard. It had a lot of intense action and was actually kind of realistic. Too many movies take themselves too seriously - this movie is at the other end of the spectrum. It clearly was developed from the start as pure escapism entertainment. You're not going to have a better understanding of humanity or yourself at the end of this movie. You will laugh out loud, you will cheer for Sam, and you'll love most of the characters (the one's that make it that is).

David R. Ellis, the man at the helm, is a former stunt director and what matters in stunt sequences is timing and good pacing. His previous films demonstrated that - Final Destination 2 and Cellular - and here we get the same thing again. Thin plot, good tension. The obviously CGI snakes look pretty decent and make for some good creature flick fun with all of their jumping, hissing, and crawling just about everywhere that is humanly possible. Samuel L. Jackson gives an amazing performance. He never gives in to the campiness of the movie, and plays it completely straight. The self control he exhibits here should earn him a special Award.

I recommend watching this movie, for the sake of the snakes. I honestly thought this movie was very amusing as well, with the whole idea of "snakes on a plane". This movie had a lot of its facts straight about snakes, and had an interesting idea on how they dealt with them. But still, if you haven't seen it yet fine a way to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Entertaining Jan. 3 2007
Format:DVD
When I first entered the theater to see this film I expected it to be total crap. However, after all the buzz I was very curious. The movie itself, while not Oscar quality was an extremely entertaining movie which really brought you in to the sotry. The snakes both the live stars and the computer animated ones were very enthralling. Samuel L. Jackson was as good as ever as the FBI agent assigned to protect a Mafia witness. The acting, for the major characters, was also suprisling good. I cannot wait to recieve my copy of Snakes On A Plane and if you want a movie unlike any others in recent history than you should be too. Snakes On A Plane is a must have for any die hard fan of films that break the trends and truly engage the audience in the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars That's What I'm Talkin' About Aug. 18 2006
By Jason A. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Look, if I wanted to watch one of the greatest movies of all time... "Citizen Kane" or "The Godfather" or "Jean de Florette" or "Airplane!", I would have stayed home with my DVDs. No. If I wanted subtle man-versus-vermin psychological horror, with organ music, I would have stayed home and listened to William Conrad as "Leiningen vs. The Ants".

No. No, no, no! I wanted to go out on a Friday night and I wanted to see snakes on a plane. Mo'fo' snakes on a mo'fo' plane. And that is exactly what I got.

The problems with this movie are very few. Number one, the main character in this movie is a surfer dude but the movie was shot in British Columbia. That's not a problem. Good second unit photography will have you convinced that you're on Waikiki Beach, and you didn't come to this movie to see surfer dudes, anyway. You wanted to see a CGI plane battling turbulence, and really vicious CGI snakes.

Number two, it takes about 20 to 30 minutes for the snakes to get out into the cabin and start rearing and biting. That's not a problem either. Make a list of every delicate body part you'd expect a snake to bite, and once the snakes get out, game on. You're waiting for the big python to show up? Well, that's at least an hour wait, but once he's out, game on.

Number three, it takes Samuel L. Jackson so long to drop That Line that you almost wonder if he's not ever going to say it. Again, not a problem.

Look, this movie was probably first-drafted in screenwriting class. The writers care way too much about their reluctant FBI witness to a mob hit scenario, when the audience just wants snakes. Snakes on a plane. And then when we finally hit the airport, you can do a head count of the passengers and figure out who's going to die, how, and when. There's the stuffy British business traveler (I had him pegged as the first to die), the hot-to-trot sexy young couple -- the girl's in pink thong panties, the aging flight attendant on her last flight, and the ambiguously gay male steward. Finally, the overweight comedy co-pilot with the Texas accent. The script writes itself.

But it's got snakes. Snakes on a plane. If you took the time to come to this page and rate the movie one or two stars, you clearly didn't realize what movie you were buying tickets to go see and you shouldn't have been there in the first place. If you want to see your awesomely bad snakes on a plane picture, this is literally the only movie to go see.

Sequels: Snakes on a Train. Snakes in Portland, Maine. Snakes in the Drain. Snakes in the Fast Lane. Snakes in the Cold November Rain. Snakes in a Music Video with House of Pain. Snakes in the Batter's Box with Ferris Fain. And finally... Snakes on a Train II. Bring it on!

4.0 out of 5 stars Do as I say and you'll live Feb. 2 2008
By Gunner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Snakes On A Plane DVD

Warning not for young children ( if you ever want them to fly ) some frontal nudity and violence galore.

This film does for commercial flying what JAWS did for swimming in the ocean.

Samuel L. Jackson rocked the house with his great acting and line delivery (you know the one), and even the CGI snakes looked really good. I figured the most I would give this film would be 3 stars, but the movie won me over. If you just want to have mindless fun with loads of snakes, a bada** black dude, and some gross out gore with a little boobie action thrown in for good measure, look no further than the aptly titled Snakes on a Motherf**kin Plane!

I especially laughed at the guy draining his hose who had a snake latch onto his tallywacker. Ouch!

Recommended for teenagers and up. Not recommended for small children.

4.0 out of 5 stars SNAKES ON A PLANE Aug. 19 2006
By Adam Willis - Published on Amazon.com
When this movie began production it went by the working title "Snakes on a Plane" with (im sure) every intention on changing that name to something a little less obvious. When the name leaked to the critics and film geeks alike the film took off in a way that is comparable to Star Wars Episode 1. Except with SOAP you don't have a big name director, a blockbuster history or, an endless budget. Just the title, and Samuel L. Jackson. Web sites have been dedicated to the film, influencing and even changing some content of the film. There was no pre-screening for the film to leak any information about it, because lets face it, it's Snakes on a Plane, you know what your going to get. The creaters are nothing if not straightforward.

SOAP itself is about a ruthless criminal lord named Eddie Kim who is due to appear in court on murder charges that could put him away for life. Sean Jones is the witness for the prosecution that experienced Kims' violent ways first hand when he murdered "Mr Prosecuter" as Kim so put it, in Hawaii. Now Sean is set to testify in LA under the protection of one Mr. Nelville Flynn (Jackson) escorting him the entire way.

The movie focuses on the passengers entering the plane giving you the opportunity to size up the victims, pick favorites, and decide who you think best deserves a malicious venom strike to their genitals, which I assure you does happen, a few times. As the movie gets rolling even further you get more cought up so that every peice of narrative becomes this gutbusting punch line to a joke that I don't think any of us fully understand. The point is that its Snakes on a Plane, its already a success, box office numbers or not. This is what Attack of the Killer Tomatos wished it could be. It's a movie that will live and die by its title. It embraces it like a war flag on its way to pilage Hollywood. Like it or not, you know what your in for. Good Snakes, Good Hero, Good Entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to the hype and then some Aug. 18 2006
By Monkdude - Published on Amazon.com
I went into my packed theater this morning expecting to be mildly entertained. Believe it or not, this is the most vocal audience I have ever seen a movie with. I can't imagine the early showings last night, they must have been insane. Nobody left the theater to use the bathroom, and people were cheering and jumping out of their seats throughout. The film starts off really cheesy, but once they get on that plane, you won't be able to resist the venom this films packs. Samuel L. Jackson rocked the house with his great acting and line delivery (you know the one), and even the CGI snakes looked really good. I figured the most I would give this film would be 3 stars, but the movie won me over. If you just want to have mindless fun with loads of snakes, a bada** black dude, and some gross out gore with a little boobie action thrown in for good measure, look no further than the aptly titled Snakes on a Motherf**kin Plane!

5.0 out of 5 stars I have never had my date flee a movie theater until I went to go see "Snakes on a Plane" Aug. 18 2006
By Lawrance M. Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
My wife made it as far as the point in the film where the python shows up, and then she fled the theater. Prior to that point she had jumped and screamed eight times, hit me four times, and dug her fingernails into my arm three times. She also took several opportunities to tell me that I owed her because I was making her watch this movie, but that was before she got up and left me there alone. To be fair, she did return for the end of the movie, by which time she had apparently reconsidered our situation during that interim period and had upgraded by status so that she now informed me that she owned me and that she would determine how and when I would be made to pay for this.

When I suggested going to a movie today because Friday is (usually) the day that new films show up in town and she asked me what we could go see I had said, "Snakes on a Plane." I had expected her to say "No." Actually I was hoping that she would say, "There is no way that I am going to see that m****r-f********g film about those m****r-f********g snakes on that m****r-f********g plane," but that is simply not her style. So I did not really think she would want to see this film and would maintain that she went of her own free will. However, when I suggested that we would have to own this film when it came out on DVD she told me that would be the day I would be moving out of the house. Consequently, I have to suggest that "Snakes on a Plane" might not be the best date movie currently available at your local cinema.

The premise of "SoaP" (great acronym) is elegantly simple. Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips) witnesses the murder of an L.A. district attorney who is vacationing in Hawai'i. Being flown to Los Angeles to testify against the killer, Jones is in the care of FBI Agent Nelville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson). However, the killer has arranged for what appears to be at least one of every venomous snake on the face of the planet to be let loose during the flight, thereby realizing the title of the film. Also include in the cast are: Julianna Margulies as Claire Miller, the flight attendant who is on her final flight; Flex Alexander as Three Gi's, the rap star aboard the plane; Kenan Thompson as Troy, one of the rapper's two hefty bodyguards; and Rachel Blanchard as Mercedes, who appears to be a Paris Hilton wannabe. Basically everybody on the film is a designed character (e.g., the irate First Class passenger, the newlyweds, the kick boxer, etc.), and when we meet them we are not really trying to learn anything about them, but just calculate their chances of being alive by the end credits (which you should stick around and watch for the music video). Fortunately there are almost as many heroes as there are victims on this particular doomed flight.

Basically, this 2006 film delivers exactly what the title promises. Despite the famous line paraphrased and censored above, Jackson's character does not curse much in this film, which is a shame because nobody curses like Samuel L. Jackson (and that includes the character of Al Swearagen on "Deadwood," and that fellow is no slouch when it comes to the art of the profane tirade). What is important is that they come up with a way for the snakes to start attacking everybody on the plane at once, although we have to build up to that with an initial series of attacks before the snakes hit the fan. I was not happy that they kept making the same mistake several times (leaving one person alone in the cockpit flying the plane), and the green "snake-o-vision" was nothing special, but otherwise I was able to put both logic and reasoning on the back burner for this one. Plus, my wife fled the theater and you just have to round up for any movie that makes that happen.
