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
The films CGI is a little better than the first one but CGI no matter what the budget is the CGI gets better by the year and this being made two years later than the first one. With the first one it kept me in it and I was not bored but this one is very boring and kept me looking at the time on the DVD player for how much time is left. That is the negative of the film and here goes the positive: the attacks or somewhat good and that's about it. I paid $5 for it and wished I bought another DVD but I originally bought this because I bought Boa vs Python in a 4 film collection and decided to collect the whole series including Boa, Python, and this film which I have completed.
My advice do not buy or do not rent on Netflix unless you want to be bored.
I wish I could say this is the Hamlet of snake movies but it isn't. It's more like Much Ado About Nothing. This movie could definitely have used a lot more of everything: better actors, better dialog, a better story, more explosions, more carnage............. But as is, with no discernible improvements, it's just your basic BIG snake(s) run amok. It's entertaining on a certain level but that's about it.
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.

First thoughts...Nicely done. But...not as good as the first one. Here's the breakdown.
1. Directing--Very good. Read more
Its an OK low budget sci-fi horror film but it does not have much to show off. The FX are average and the acting is a little below par. The story is ok, good enough to be made. Read morePublished on May 12, 2008 by Trevor Merris
