Anacondas 2: Hunt for the Blood Orchid Review
Written by: Meh
Well kids, this movie is definitely a borderline film. Anaconda's 2 I got in the discount bin and you know I cant resist the discount bin. Although it sometimes causes me great pain, from time to time it rocks my world ( see my Deep Rising review ). Anaconda 2 however is nowhere near the fun of the first.
A scientific expedition is sent to the jungles of Borneo to search for a rare black orchid by a powerful pharmaceutical company that hopes the orchid can be used to unlock the secrets of youth and immortality.
What they discover is that the orchid is already being used by a powerful group... a swarm of giant snakes that derive their super strength, size and vitality from the flowers, and extremely large snakes are also extremely hungry snakes.
Basically the concept is, hot young group of "scientists" go hunting for the blood orchid. Ever noticed how smart geeky types in real life look nothing like their on screen counterparts? I need to hook up with a zoo-ologist that looks like the one in this flick. Anyrate, the hot young group heads into the jungle, and ends up getting wiped out by giant snakes. Sound familiar? It should, its the same film with a few new plotlines in it as the first one. Granted the CGI snakes were not near as bad as the one in Snakes on a Plane, but this film is far from a stellar. I guess if your thing is killer snakes, hot chicks and mindless snake action this flick is for you. I would say this film is a rental at best.
