3.0 out of 5 stars Ssssst! It's just a bit of fun....., 2 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Snakes on a Plane [DVD] (DVD)
It never fails to baffle me how so many reviewers take exception to movies like this, criticising plot, dialogue, the presence of a high profile actor like Samuel L Jackson etc, as if it was ever meant to enrol into the annals of All Time Movie Greats.

Isn't its title a bit of a giveaway? Snakes On A Plane? What utterly ridiculous set of circumstances could lead to such a scenario? And yet here it is on-screen - of course it's ridiculous but c'mon people, don't take it so seriously!! This is simple popcorn munching, brainless fun designed purely to entertain, not to inspire, not to be thought-provoking and for those of you who ponder what the charismatic-as-ever Samuel L Jackson is doing in a movie like this, well, actors need to have fun too.

Anyhoo, Neville Flynn (Jackson) is an FBI agent assigned to protect Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips) who has witnessed a lawyer brutally murdered by a Gangster kingpin named Kim. Flynn is to escort Jones aboard a 747 to a trial in Los Angeles, where his testimony will be crucial in getting a conviction. Little do they know that Kim has had dozens of snakes smuggled into the cargo hold of the plane & sprayed with pheromones to irritate the snakes & intensify their attacks.

And attack they most certainly do in just about every orifice of the plane (and passengers) leading to several gut-wrenching but quite often unintentionally comedic moments too, snakes in the oxygen masks, sick bags, interrupting a 'meeting' in the Mile High club, a guy taking a whizz at a horribly inopportune time - it's all just brash, nonsensical fun, devoid of any subtlety.

So don't bring your brain into the equation and you might get something out of this caper. Try to remember it's just a bit of fun to pass away what could otherwise be 2 boring hours of your life.
