Anaconda had the grace to be campily bad; Python, a flagrant rip-off, just sucks. A military transport carrying a whopper of a snake crashes somewhere in the mountains near a sweet little town, where two brothers live. One of them is an avid cyclist who's come back after his father's death to help his brother with the family business--a metal-engraving company that, for some reason, has enormous vats of acid. The snake starts eating people; when their semidigested remains are found, suspicion falls on the cyclist, because only he would have access to the acid necessary to burn the victims to the bone in this disgusting manner. (It's a particularly tacky detail that a lesbian couple are the first victims of the enormous, phallic snake.) Anyhow, some special unit of the government comes in, including our supposed stars Casper Van Dien (with a cheesy mustache and a cheesier accent) and Robert Englund (of Nightmare on Elm Street fame). In various incomprehensible action sequences, they prove to be incompetent, and it's only our stalwart bicyclist and a sturdy young deputy who save the day. Python is terribly written, terribly acted, and terribly directed and features mediocre special effects (the snake is never the same size from scene to scene). Jenny McCarthy has a cameo, for those who care about such things. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Scientist Dr. Anton Rudolph (Englund) has engineered the perfect killing machine - the world's first massive, genetically enhanced python. Mistakenly unleashed in a small American town, this unstoppable creature with a voracious appetite is raging out of control. As the massive python gobbles up the locals one by one, it's up to Special Agent Parker (Van Dien) to conquer nature's ulitmate terror. If you enjoyed movies like Lake Placid and Anaconda, you'll eat up PYTHON.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Decent Flick May 31, 2005
Format:DVD
If your into B-Movies as much as I am, then this film is for you. True, the acting, CGI effects, and plot is a bit lower then normal standards (but hey, is a B-movie ever above standards). Just by the title "PYTHON", you know your into a cornfest. Best advice when seeing this, don't have high expectations.

If you ignore the fact that this is a B-movie, and set your acting and CGI standards lower then from something like "STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE SITH" (actually...MUCH lower), then you may get a kick out of this flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome b-movie January 18, 2001
Format:DVD
I saw this at my local video store and grabbed it without thinking twice. I got it for several reasons. One being that Wil Wheaton was in it and the other being i love my monster movies. This is exactly what one might expect. Atrocious acting by a somewhat talented and recognizable cast, TERRIBLE snake effects, but a satisfying amount of gore, and "leave you hanging" non-sex scenes. All in all, it was a load of fun and it was great for late-night viewing. I had a fun time with the over-the-top performances and seeing the results of the snake effects. There was very little nudity but be warned: Those expecting to see Jenny McCarthy in the buff will be sorely dissapointed. My only complaint was that one character i liked got killed and Keith Coogan, (Brad from adventures in Babysitting and Cheetah) who is billed in the opening credits, doesn't show up until the end for one speaking part and it is after the snake "problem" has been resolved. Great film for cheesy horror film buffs. I'm waiting for the seqaul myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Snnnaaaaaakkkeeee! January 9, 2001
Format:DVD
Okay let me start by saying this movie does not take itself seriously. Whew! Too many times a film of this kind can't quite figure out what it wants to be. Not a problem here. It's all tounge and cheek . William Zabka(The bully from the Karate Kid and Just one of the Guys) Plays Deputy Greg, a Small town Deputy Sherrif Who just never left town to become that hotshot FBI agent. He's got bigger problems, seems a military flight carring a VERY LARGE and VERY HUNGARY Experimental Snake has gone down in the woods surrounding the small town of Ruby. The rest as they say is history. Robert England and Casper Van Dien also show up to hunt the Great and Hungary Beast The Dvd itself has some nice extras and a great 3D Menu. It looks and sounds great. If you liked Anaconda you'll like Python.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh Man....this was a tough one to sit through! September 7, 2004
Format:DVD
Okay, I had just finished watching the awful dreck that was "Night of the Komodo", and decided I still needed more large reptile punishment...so I pop in "Python". "Night of the Komodo" had a no-name cast, lousy script, lousy special effects, and was a complete waste of time. The good news is "Python" had a couple B-level actors in the cast, and appears to have had some kind of budget...the bad news is, that it is as much a waste of time, and as hard to sit through as "Night of the Komodo" was. You may see Robert Englund's name on box, or hear about Jenny McCarthy's cameo and your interest might be piqued....squelch that interest right away, or you will be dooming yourself to a wasted evening of watching this film! The thing is..I love B movies, "Tremors" should have been nominated for an Academy Award it was so good. I am first in line whenever a new "Friday the 13th" or "Halloween" movie comes out. And I still think the original "Pumpkinhead" may be one of the most underrated movies of all time. Hell I even found something to love about Lou Diamond Phillips & "Bats". So I do know what I am talking about when it comes to B-movies. "Python" is just bad. I think the thing that killed this movie for me, was the half-hearted attempts at comic relief. If you are going to include comic relief make sure it's funny. The two dimwits working in the plating factory was just awful, then you had the goofy realtor trying to sell McCarthy a house.....just plain bad. To top it all off, you have Wil Wheaton sporting purple hair and body piercings? Having Wil Wheaton try to come off as a "bad boy" is like having Clint Howard pose as a male model..it just won't add up. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOWS ANACONDA out of the water April 29, 2001
Format:DVD
THIS is a spoof on Python. TOTALLY FUNNY. The producers and director must have had one heck of a blast makiung this film. Nothing was taken seriously. I laughed my head off and the ending was totally hilarious. Loved the lesbian love scene too. COuld have been a little more explicit, that would have made it a lot more interesting!!!
Dont be quick to judge like the others that ripped this film. It was a great snake flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the cheesey movie lovers October 23, 2001
By Amber
Format:VHS Tape
Whoever knocks this movie sure should have known what was coming.
Anything involving a snake is sure to be cheesey. All the actors
have proven that they could act in the past.(Yes, even Casper Van Dien.) The conclusion, That's what the movie was called for.
Oh, and for that Wes remarke, Learn to seperate the character from the actor. It's been over ten years, get over it. In closing
I repeat once more, THE ACTOR'S CAN REALLY ACT. In all cheesey movies, even the acting gets horribble. Even from the greatest of actors. I take back that all the actors have proven themselves. Jenny, get good.
