It is interesting to note that of the list of four cast members profiled in special features, one is in the first ten minutes of the movie only.
Do I really need to tell you that plot (involving, *gasp* the military!) is simplistic contrived and lame? That it will find inconsequential characters in the bowels of a facility? That we learn most of their names when they die and another character screams "Mike! NOOOOOOOOOOO!"? That the special effects on the covor are about as good as the ones in the film? That the dialogue is like listening to a parrot strapped into a cuisinart? Or that the score uses snare drums when the military men appear? Or that there is not an iota of tension, fear or humor?
I mean, c'mon... the film is called PYTHON II (do I need to tell you that the roman numeral 2 is actually a pair of red slash marks?)
It's worse than Carnosaur.....
It's not however, the worst film ever made. It isn't offensive, just jaw-dropping, shockingly, mind-bogglingly awful, and an utter waste of time.
By the way, if you and your buds are looking to get drunk and make fun of a bad horror film for kicks don't come near this... I recommend JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 for that
What we do have is an operation to take an 85-foot 12-ton python from a cave in Russia to the US. This is to be done by an American officer leading Russian troops. They are pretty successful but are then shot down (no, I don't know why).
Then, a failed baseball player and his Russian wife who run a shipping company, run afoul of one of their accounts only to be rescued by a mysterious American (sure looked and sounded Russian to me).
Turns out he is the cop from the first movie. He needs their truck to pick up some cargo from a crash.
Meanwhile, at a Russian army base, a box about seven feet by three feet by four feet supposedly has the title creature in it. Well, they open it and the snake comes out. In one scene there is more sake sticking out of the bow then the box could hold (yeah, right!).
Soon we have tense scenes of our heroes and the snakes (did you say 'snakes'?) running around the caverns of the base. It all works out in the end but we never find out why there was more than one snake.
We also never find out what the python was doing in a Russian cave. If it was genetically created, how did it get there? This and other questions are never answered.
One good aspect was that a lot of the snake scenes had the snake off-camera, thus allowing for better suspense and a savings in CGI.
Unfortunately the snake does not cooperate with their plans, and mayhem reigns on the base. The movie has many features that do not recommend it: the pointless flashbacks, the seemingly endless credit sequence (which was lengthened at the last minute to give the film a marketable running time), numerous continuity issues, and really, really bad CGI effects. I was especially amused when the snake spit what looks for all the world like Silly String on one of the victims (it was supposed to be acid). The only set of flashbacks that have any purpose at all are the ones linking Zabka with the first "Python". I actually felt bad for Zabka here: he actually can act, and his talents are squandered on this.
Amusing contrivances abound. The female smuggler gets blinded in the underground Russian complex, yet she is the one sent via a labyrinthine series of air conditioning ducts to the surface to get the explosives the professionals forgot to get out of their truck. Just think about this: they had a blind woman crawl through ducts, avoid the giant snake, run to the truck, get the explosives, and return while fighting the snake off with a pistol. To top it all off (remember she's blind) they make sure to give her a flashlight to help her navigate the ducts.Read more ›
