Snakes on a Plane
Review By: Jeff

Once in a great while, a film comes along that reminds us why we go to the movies in the first place. A masterful piece of story telling that tugs on the emotional fibers of our very being and invites us to partake in a fulfilling experience that will last a lifetime. Most important of all though is that it brings us all back to a simpler time, before the world snatched us up in it's high-speed vortex of complexity, and slows things down to showcase a tale crafted solely to span the ages as a damn fun flick. In other words, Snakes on a Plane fuckin' rocked.

When a young man named Sean Jones witnesses the murder of a prosecutor, by an evil douche bag named Eddie Kim, he has to be escorted, via plane, to Los Angeles to testify against him. In order to prevent that from happening, Kim has the plane filled with a poisonous snakes in hopes that they'll kill Jones and destroy any chance the FBI has of putting him in a nice comfy execution chamber. The only things standing between the snakes and Jones are FBI agent Nelville Flynn (played by Samuel L. Jackson) and a host of passengers and crew that all want to get these motherfucking snakes off this motherfucking plane.

That's really all there is to the plot and once the snakes are released, things just go from Awesome to FUCKIN' A! A couple gets attacked while joining the "Mile High Club" (HOORAY FOR BOOBIES!!!!) and another guy gets his wang chomped on by one and a fat black dude gets bitten in the ass (instant comedy). There’s also a good deal of gore as people get all pussed up and bloody from the bites plus there"s some non snake related deaths thrown in. There's just something for the whole family here and I really don't want to go into detail and spoil it for anyone.

I haven't had as much fun watching a movie as I had while watching Snakes on a Plane in a long time. It's exactly what it needed to be, a throwback to the glory days of the B-movies, and it not only delivers but also revels in it. The effects worked well enough and the acting was just fine from everyone, given how ridiculous the plot is. Definitely a film to see with friends or an energetic crowd because this the type of film that offers bonus entertainment from audience participation. The last time an instant classic monster movie of this caliber came out was in 1990 with the release of Tremors.

Yeah, I pretty much kissed this film's ass thoroughly but I don't care. This movie was all I hoped it would be and it's easily my favorite of the year. I can't find much to hate on, as there’s hardly any stereotypes, no retarded tacked on sub plots and, best of all, no hidden moral or agenda to be jammed down our throats. I'm sure a lot of people will never see it claiming that it looks stupid or that it's a waste of money and to them I say, get off your fucking high horse, turn off your damn brain and go watch a movie that only promises to be one thing: FUN.
