Snakes On A Plane is an American film about some snakes that are smuggled onto a plane to try and kill the son of an enemy of a gang in Hawaii, and one FBI agent must save the day by killing all of these deadly snakes, along with help from the cabin crew and passengers.
I was really surprised by how seriously this film was trying to take itself. I think that without Samuel L. Jackson’s great performance in it, the film would have been a lot worse, but the gore and killer nature of the snakes seemed so comedic, that they definitely could have made it more entertaining by adding some funny elements to it.
At points, this film was very unpleasant and boring to watch, especially the initial escape of the snakes, where they first start killing people, and although it was intended, it just wasn’t nice to watch, nor interesting at all, as this film’s story was seriously poor.
By the end of the film, the action starts to pick up a little, and along with a bit more of a story and less darkness, the film does become a bit nicer and more exciting to watch, but that’s only the last 25 minutes or so; the rest is just very poor indeed, so that’s why I’ll give it a 5.5.
