High adventure in the Amazon with Jon Voight, Jennifer Lopez and Ice Cube

RELEASED IN 1997 and directed by Luis Llosa, "Anaconda" details events in the Amazon when a documentary film crew come across a stranded Paraguayan snake hunter (Jon Voight) and take him aboard, believing he knows how to find the tribe for which they're searching. The furtive man turns out to be increasingly menacing, but there's an even worse problem: A giant anaconda!

REST OF CAST: Jennifer Lopez plays the sultry-but-sophisticated film director; Eric Stoltz her boyfriend and anthropologist Professor; Ice Cube the tough cameraman; Jonathan Hyde the posh Brit actor/host; Owen Wilson the sound engineer; Kari Wuhrer his girlfriend and production manager; and Vincent Castellanos the hunky boat skipper.

This is a combination jungle adventure and creature-on-the-loose flick and it works well largely due to: A notable cast, a quality slow-build script with increasing tension, and a genuine sense of high adventure, shot on location in the waters of the Amazonian jungles. Until the overblown final act when the cartoony titular reptile joins the cast, the movie's actually realistic and akin to "Apocalypse Now" (1979) and "Fitzcaraldo" (1982). Voight is outstanding as the menacing jungle hunter and you really get the sense that the crew is increasingly wary of him.

The movie scores well on the female front with Lopez and Wuhrer, but their beauty could've been showcased better. Voluptuous Jennifer, for instance, could have been shown in tight-fitting pants or shorts, although there's a good early shot of her in a short nightgown. Don't get me wrong, the movie does well enough in this department.

THE FILM RUNS 89 minutes and was shot in Amazonas, Brazil, and Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden, Arcadia, California. WRITERS: Hans Bauer, Jim Cash and Jack Epps Jr.

GRADE: B+

No thought power required

This is a mind-numbing but entertaining monster snake movie. It is a quite exciting adventure but the depth is non-existent and there is no humour. It's all totally ridiculous. It isn't especially violent and there is no nudity but Jennifer is looking mighty fine so it is all good. I quite enjoyed it as there is no thought power required. One of the best giant snake movies and with that title comes pure cheesiness.

Thank you, Andrea Treese. You said it. What's with all the 10s on here?

The whole way through this movie, I keep wondering how hungry this animal could possibly be for crying out loud after each of its victims. And hasn't anyone seen a real anaconda in a zoo??? Or even on Animal Planet? They're not THAT long... This movie highly exaggerates one's length. Also, at the climax, a snake wouldn't look the guy and girl over, then Jon Voight, and decide to go after HIM, instead, thinking revenge first for trying to capture it. After it gets blown up, I like how the film makers have it stay above water as it keeps coming after the girl with its entire head end on fire because it looks cool. Dip yourself under, you idiot!! I give this one a 2 instead of a 1 for its acting. It's not the worst movie I've seen.
