This review is from: Anacondas - The Hunt For The Blood Orchid [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this film on sky, and was supprised it only got a 2 star review. I haven't seen anaconda, but I didn't need to, seeing as this one has an independent plot, which was well explained, and linked with the rest of the story.
The film is about a group of explorers head into the Amazon, to look for a life extending flower, the blood orchid. However, the crash over a waterfall, and run into some massive anacondas. The story splits the characters in two. There is a crazed man keen to find the orchid, no matter who had to die in the process, a woman who can only think about a bath, and a teenager who freaks out at anything!
The snakes are realistic in some ways, the acting is generally good and there are some tense and quite creepy scenes, and a couple of scares, like when the kid in grabbed from behind by an anaconda, after the female scientist decapitates onn of them.
An all round good action film.
