1.0 out of 5 stars Excuse me, is this a comedy?, 20 May 2013
This review is from: Anacondas - The Hunt For The Blood Orchid [DVD] (DVD)
"Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid". It sounded promising, but for various reasons, I missed the first 50 minutes of the movie. Not to worry. The rest of it was just as bad as I expected!

A bunch of stereotyped, out-of-place characters starred by mediocre actors. A greedy, mad scientist searching for the fountain of youth (which turns out to be a rare orchid). And...well, anacondas. And then, maybe not, since the meagre plot is set in Borneo. Anacondas, of course, are South American. Borneo is in, ahem, the East Indies. Presumably, the "anacondas" are pythons, then?

Fortunately, the film has a happy ending, with Mr. Mad Scientist being killed by a noxious spider and subsequently feasted upon by the snakes during their mating ritual. The blood orchid (Perennia immortalis) is destroyed together with the 'condas, and, well, there the story pretty much winds down.

If you are a kid, you will definitely be scared stiff by the giant serpents in this production, but the rest of us either gasp or laugh, perhaps depending on the amount of lite alcoholic beverages we have consumed beforehand. Being a tee-totaller, I mostly gasped. But sure, "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid" might entertain those of a somewhat less classy disposition.

Blah, blah, blah.
