    It's not so bad that it's good. It's so bland that it's boring. Not even worth a hissss. show more

    If you can find a better time at the movies this year than this wild comic thriller, let me in on it. show more

    Cheesy, campy B-movie fun, thanks mostly to the cadre of cobras and their ilk and also to Jackson (probably the only actor alive who could pull off this save-the-day bad ass movie role). show more

    David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer

    This hotly anticipated film delivers on the premise of its celebrated title. But it offers little more in terms of suspense, originality or enjoyment. Mostly, it lays there on the screen like a big lazy boa. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    To an extent, Snakes on a Plane reminds me of "Eight Legged Freaks." It has the same kind of off-the-wall, don't-take-it-seriously comedic horror sensibility. show more
