Snakes on a Plane (*)

This is an easy review: Snakes on a Plane is as dumb as it looks. Any enjoyment you might have from this movie has already been had. It's nowhere near as fun as the movie you conjure up in your brain just from hearing the title alone. And it's a great title. But the movie is pure, direct-to-video trashiness. And I don't mean that in a good way. The audience I saw this movie with had a good time, but it was as if they were making something out of nothing. The movie didn't really give them anything to work with. They all came to see it (drunk, I might add, which is really the only way to watch this movie) ready to laugh and make fun of it. They were primed to explode. If anything, the movie defused that explosion. As it went along, you could feel the energy just zap out of the theater. As any living, breathing human being can tell you, this movie looks like it's terrible. Boy, does it deliver.
