5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin..., 3 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anaconda 1-4 [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
If you like achingly beautiful, quiet movies where the dialogue is everything and the silences advance the lack of action seamlessly, these films are not for you. The original film is not too bad, over-blown and ridiculous yes, but fast moving, action packed and unpretentious. It is what it is. I actually enjoyed the second one slightly more, despite the action having moved to a place where anacondas do not exist. The slow boat up the river into danger works slightly better in the second one (in my opinion). The third and fourth ones are definitely sequels too far, which is a shame, because in the female zoologist character there is defintely potential, but she is badly let down by hammy bad guys, improbable demises and the settings which suggest that it was all done on the really cheap and filmed in a wood somewhere in Eastern Europe. The final film in particular suffers from a lack of build up to the shocks, and there is very little tension.
