Any movie that features a snake who can't stomach John Voight deserves one star from me.

Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Feels like "Alien" as directed by Jim Henson. And the suspense is restricted to mundane slasher-movie tactics, including the frequent use of a mobile camera (call it the ’condacam) that’s supposed to represent the snake’s point of view. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The biggest flaw can be summed up in a short phrase: lack of excitement. Thrillers are supposed to be crammed with thrills (hence the name), but Anaconda is relatively barren of them. Full Review
Joe Leydon
A silly and plodding "Jaws" rip-off about a 40-foot man-eating snake on the prowl in the Brazilian rain forest. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Such a classic combination of feckless dramaturgy and rampant excess that giving way to giggles is the only sane response. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Directed by Luis Llosa with all of the subtlety of a snake-oil salesman, is in the great tradition of cinematic cheese, as processed as Kraft Singles slices. [18 Apr 1997, p. 48] Full Review
