Okay, I am giving this movie 4 stars because it was thoroughly enjoyable when synced to Rifftrax. Without the Rifftrax treatment, I would probably give it a 3 due to its cheesiness! It was a treat to see JLo back around the "I'm still Jenny from the block" time, and Ice Cube was cool (sorry for the pun!). It was also fun to watch Jon Voight's really over the top bad guy performance (I still have no idea what accent he was trying to use!). Seriously, if I am ever on a boat going down a river and see this guy waving for help, I'm just going to gun the engine of the boat and get out of there! Oh yeah, there was also that guy that played Mariah Carey's love interest in Glitter (and I should probably apologize for bringing up that movie!). But, you know....that guy. If you're a guy, watch this movie for JLo and the other girl (who was really cute!). If you're a girl, watch this movie for Cube or um....you know....that guy. Just don't watch this movie and expect great acting and a great plot (or great special effects!). Just watch it to see these actors back when they were younger and treat the movie itself as 90 minutes of fun. Oh yeah, if you can sync it with the Rifftrax crew, it will be SO much more enjoyable!

A masterpiece of genre satire. Anaconda, posing as a blatantly bad 90s action flick, ripples with political commentary strewn through the movie. As a metaphor for everything from the Vietnam War to childhood obesity, this film shines. Jon Voight was snubbed from an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a (maybe South American idk) amazon snake hunter. His performance leaves nothing to be desired. 5 stars. Ice Cube does all the music in the film a cappella

Excellent action adventure film. Jon Voight is excellent as the "bad" guy in this film.

Cornball old-school style "B" movie with a giant killer snake replacing aliens, vampires, werewolves or whatnot. Loved this unashamedly goofy flick since first catching it in theaters decades ago. Pretty solid performances all-around by a mostly young cast of then up & coming actors. Still, it's sturdy veteran thespian Jon Voight who shows these new kids just how it's really done with his amazingly hammy turn as whacked-out snake hunter, Paul Sarone. He rocks every aspect of his juicy part: from the outlandish Paraguayan accent to even the tiniest nuanced physical mannerisms. Voight can do more acting with a single look or body position change than the other noobs could with a page and a half of dialogue. He makes watching this monster mash totally worthwhile. God bless him!

Wildly uneven visual effects are a real mixed bag here, ranging from great to laughably awful. (Backwards waterfall, anyone?) This is an older movie and at the time this was filmed computer generated effects were still in their infancy. That, and the low budget nature of the picture meant that the resultant full body shots of the anaconda look pretty crude & obvious, especially when compared to the infinitely more polished CGI we see today. Full-scale animatronic snake puppetry is similarly rough and not that much improved from the giant rubbery snake Arnold wrestled some 15 years prior in CONAN, THE BARBARIAN. Even so, they're effective enough to creep you out if you suspend your disbelief and just go with the flow. ANACONDA's best moment combines practical effects & CGI to give us the unforgettable "vomit & wink" scene. That lone sequence helped cement this film in the horror lexicon. That and a then fresh-faced booty babe Jennifer Lopez, plus the crazed, over-the-top performance by Voight combined to gave this little B-movie shocker a box office take surprisingly respectable enough to insure a stream of direct-to-video sequels (and endless imitators) that are still being cranked out 20+ years later.

This Blu-ray release of ANACONDA looks & sounds pretty good. Focus is satisfyingly sharp, with strong blacks, mid-tones and little to no artifacting & pixelation. This is good news since much of the picture takes place at night, in shadowy jungles and in the silty waters of the Amazon itself. No extras though, which is a HUGE disappointment. After all these years it would have been great to have had a set of new interviews with the cast to capture their reflective thoughts looking back on the film. The F/X stuff, harsh as it was, would still be interesting to dig into. Maybe on some later edition from a company who really gets into such stuff (are you reading this Shout!Factory?). Even so, this film looks & sounds pretty dang good here, enough to highly recommend even this barebones release - at least until a better, more fan-flavored edition comes along. I give this scaly, snake-fest a solid 4 STARS.

Anaconda... A terrible movie. But worth getting on blu-ray, why? Jon Voight, Ice Cube, Owen Wilson (before famous) oh and did I mention jon voight playing a snake hunter named serone with his counter part MATEO! Jon Voight's amazing one liners alone are enough to watch this terrible movie. For example, "Maybe some other time." A simple line that in text form seems unimportant. However with Voight's Serone twist, this simple line becomes hilarious gold (if there is such a thing). This movie is so ridiculous that it is hilarious... and those are my favorite movies. Surprisingly enough, this movie actually looks pretty good on blu-ray and the upgrade makes jon voight's performance even more enjoyable. I recommend that if you haven't seen this movie, you have to see it at least once. Is it worth the buy on blu-ray? Yes it is. But wait till the price drops a little more. They used to play this movie all the time on tv. Now they don't play it as much. So get it and enjoy the HD version of a classic film, Anaconda.
