Enough is Enough!

I fail to see why more people are not going to see Snakes on a Plane [Trailer]. Tell me one good reason why you shouldn't see this movie? It was one of the most entertaining movies I have seen this year and the poor box office returns does not do justice to it.



This movie was filled with hype from the day of its creation. Interestingly enough, the hype was not studio driven but fan driven. It was the first time that there was so much fan involvement in the making of this movie. Everything from the title of the movie, (and there can never be a better title), to the famous line in this clip was first conceived in the minds of the fans. There were numerous blogs and video created before the movie was released. One of the most famous ones, snakesonablog shows you the dedication people had for this movie. In light of this fan demand, the poor box office numbers don't make any sense at all!

It would have been justified had the final outcome of this very anticipated movie been very bad. But that was not the case! This movie, as I have already said, was very entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have some guaranteed enjoyable time during the weekend. The dialogue is superior than most B movies that come out every weekend. The performance by Samuel L. Jackson is much in line with any performance that is to be expected from him. He was given a free reign on his role and he exploited that very well.

The movie has a decent plot. The action is gruesome and makes u cringe but you will still laugh at it. The reason being, the creators did exactly what viewers of such a movie would like. This movie does not take the whole snakes thing as seriously as most other creature movies take themselves. They knew how much fun it could be and unleashed all that they could to make the experience more enjoyable. There is a plethora of characters, brining every kind of your typical passenger on to the plane. Snakes attack every possible anatomical feature and all possible parts of the plane are used as weapons. The movie even though cliche in its very concept is surprisingly not so. I for one would definitely give money to see this movie again. Go see this movie!


Postscript: If my word is not enough, Snakes on a Plane received an IMDB rating of 7.8 which puts it on the top 250 movies of all time!

  • Certainly one of the most entertaining and funny movies of this year. Everyone's been waiting for the snakes and they finally arrived and then some. Incredible fanbase on this one but not enough support from everyone. I think everyone who saw it should go see it again for the first time.

    Can't wait for the sequel for this one and please please don't say anything about that half-baked pure crap that was Snakes on a Train. Total garbage and no Samuel L. Jackson.

    Is that a snake behind you! WATCH OUT !!!!!

  • Where did the snakes come from?! Are they aliens? Are they flying snakes?! Genetic mutants? I think this is a national security concern!
