Product Description

Product Description

Sequel to the 1997 actioner 'Anaconda'. A pharmaceutical company sends a group of horticulturalists on a scientific expedition to Borneo in search of a rare flower - the Blood Orchid - that can reputedly bestow immortality. But the group are alarmed to discover that the precious plant is being guarded by a terrifying population of bloodthirsty anacondas, who have been imbibing the orchid's restorative properties for years - making them faster and stronger than ever.

From Amazon.co.uk

So here's the deal: A bunch of sassy scientific types, who all look as though they've spent just as much time lifting barbells as they have beakers, head out into Borneo to find a rare flower that's the "pharmaceutical equivalent to the fountain of youth"--and end up dodging the digestive system of several mutant snakes during mating season. You gotta hate when that happens. If you don't, you soon will, because this in-name-only sequel to Anaconda, 1997's now seminal guilty pleasure, is proof that more does not necessarily mean merrier. The thing isn't even good-bad; it's cheap and completely unmemorable even as popcorn fodder. Director Dwight Little and his posse of screenwriters have neither the budget nor the imagination to come on like a rip-snorting Aliens clone--it’s pretty much one snake at a time, and frankly more concerned with the conniving British baddie (Matthew Marsden) who really, really wants that orchid. The cast of no-names is destined to remain that way, although the chiselled Johnny Messner, as a rugged jungle guide, provides a few hoots in his laughably stoic attempt at Vin Diesel-dom. It's hard to determine who you’d like eaten first. --Steve Wiecking, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
This second Anaconda outing was made in 2004, some 7 years after the original and for less than half the buget, which sees a medical team head for the rivers of Borneo [actually filmed in Fiji] in search of the Blood Orchid, a flower that promises the possibility of a ;pharmaceutical Fountain of Youth. Chartering the only boat available the group head upriver. A few minor incidents occur before the group hit major problems and as the deaths pile up, so betrayal takes over and the trip becomes one of survival.
Although the general plot is similar to the first film, this is completely independent and sufficiently different to maintain the interest using far more humour and scares than the first. The film buzzes with one liners [Everything here gets eaten –it’s a jungle] as the characters instantly go head to head with one another and has a fair number of and sitcom jokes thrown in for good measure, especially when it comes to mobile phones and the monkry is brilliant. .
The single disc offers play, audio set up [actually English –default, Czech or Hungarian language choice], subtitles [9 differing languages], scene selection, special features [special effects, deleted scenes] and trailers [for this and 3 other films, My disc had a bad changeover point around 77minutes in where it froze, but after a second or so it resumed with no loss of play time.
This version [with a cover showing 4 people wading through the water] is exactly the same as the copy in the Anacondas 1-4 box set. Although not so edge of the seat as the first, I actually preferred this to the original movie and heartily give it a **** rating

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.

This film is a decent sequel, but is a bitter let down to me. The plot is good and with a bit better acting it could have gotten 5 stars. The problem with the plot is that it is very predictable, and you can tell when something is going to happen.
The scary parts ARE scary, and the anacondas look great and are realistic. The idea of the snakes eating the flower and keep growing is good, I kept wondering if I would see a bigger anaconda every scene. If you like scarey horrors this is quite good, but I would rather watch 'dawn of the dead' or other scary films, but this ok for the scary moments.
If you would like to watch it, it is good for a rent, but I would recommend that you rent it before you buy.

To be honest I was dubious about this film before I watched it for the first time. I enjoyed the first film but that was some time ago and I am always dubious about sequels, especially when no stars return.
I was pleasantly surprised by the film, the effects have not really improved since the first film but they never get so bad that they detract from the dumb fun that this film offers.
Switch off your mind and enjoy!!

Warning: midway plot spoilers. SHE'S UGLY, BUT SHE PUTS OUT was said about John Messner's boat. This was his funny line which he delivered in a tough guy monotone as the guide, Bill Johnson, former special ops agent and acting school drop out. The movie has some great scenery as the movie starts with a native in Borneo being hunted by an extinct Tiger, escaping then to be eaten by a species of Anacondas that are not indigenous to that region. However that doesn't seem to phase the writers as they script in a group of scientists to look for a rare flower that doesn't exist either. It only blooms for six months once every six years and they only have 2 weeks to obtain it, or wait. This flower is believed to be a chemical fountain of youth.

Once in Borneo they obtain overpriced guide services to go up the river during the rainy season. During the trip, one of the two babes falls overboard and is accosted by a man-eating Borneo crocodile (They exist.). Our guide leaps into the water and kills the big rubber croc with a knife and saves the girl. Now the reason why she fell over is that she was doing a cell phone commercial on the boat by walking around with a phone saying, "Can you hear me now?" The problem is that these were NOT cell phones (no towers in jungle) but radio satellite phones which makes no difference where on the boat she stood.

It appears that the river is flooded and dangerous. The guide is bribed to take the dangerous route to save time. The boat cascades over a water falls and is lost, but everyone survives as does a cell phone used to call the guide's friend who will pick them up. However in order to get there they have to transverse through the jungles.
