An Uncle Sam Review:
OK kids, I just got back from watching Samuel L. Jackson’s “Snakes On A Plane.” There has been a ton of hype about this movie. Much of it coming from us here at Slice of SciFi. We even went so far as to have the actual snake wranger from the movie, Jules Sylvester, and one of the biggest names in show business, Samuel L. Jackson on our show as guests, allowing them to talk all they wanted about the film. Just let me tell you this, everything we said, everything we talked about, all the hype we and others have given for this project were absolutely right on.
This film opens with action, is full of action in the middle and closes with action. Now, if you are looking for a cinematic experience that will cause you to spend countless hours wondering about the nature of life and the universe, then perhaps “Snakes On A Plane” is not the movie for you. However, if you want to sit for two hours being entertained, thrilled, scared to the edge of your seat and have the person sitting on either side of you grabbing you every twenty seconds (or you grabbing them), then this film is right up your alley.
Samuel L. Jackson is Samuel L. Jackson at his mutha-f**kin’ best as he kicks the living crap out of boa constrictors, rattlesnakes, cobras and more ravenous, poisonous, fang-snapping snakes in one confined space than is literally imaginable. And the great thing about this movie – it actually has a pretty decent story behind it as well. Oh, did I mention that these snakes are all hyped up on pheromones? Or, as Jackson said it in the movie, “Oh shit, snakes on crack!” If there was ever a film that screamed sequel, “Snakes On A Plane” is that movie.
I’m not going to give away any of the scenes because I don’t have to, the title naturally says it all – “SNAKES ON A PLANE!” You need not know anything else about it. Just go and see it because this baby is going to turn into the biggest cult-classic film of the 21st Century. What “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” did for 20th Century midnight madness, so SOAP is the new midnight madness marathon movie of this new Century of fanatical late night moviegoers. Expect this wonderfully crazy film to be around for a long, long time.
On the Uncle Sam scale of 0 to 5 *’s, I give it ****, just for the pure escapism that it is and the fun you will have watching it for two hours.
