The main drawback is ironically derived from a positive. It's not often the Sci-Fi Channel makes a movie with a likable cast, and in this case likable characters were getting killed off left and right while a bunch of extras were milling around unscathed for most of the movie.
On the other hands it good that the movie had likable characters at all.
On another note, this movie festures masses of snaks, not the usual insect swarm or giant animal. And in something of an oddity for the Sci-Fi channel, there's no giant snakes in this movie.
On second thought, 3/5. In my original review I rated it 4/5, but I'm not sure it was quite that good.
I'd like to offer my congratulations to Bill Corcoran who, with Vipers, has done something I previously thought impossible: he almost managed to put me to sleep in the middle of a movie I was watching at two o'clock in the afternoon.
Do you really need a plot summary? Well, here you go: genetically-altered (and badly rendered) vipers. Small town. Commence bloodshed.
With the exception of the mildly entertaining Incubus, it's been a pretty good rule of thumb that Tara Reid's name connected with any movie project since Cruel Intentions has been a recipe for disaster. Vipers is no exception. Add the presence of Corbin Bernsen, who hasn't made a good movie in even longer (I think you have to go back to Major League), and you can feel the black hole sucking you in. The best way I can think to describe it is "soap opera with snakes". Except that no one involved in this mess can act even as well as the perennial stars on your favorite soap opera.
Not a single redeeming quality to be found here. Avoid at all costs. (zero)
Hearing your toothless uncle talk politics at Thanksgiving dinner might be more intertaining than this.
The cast is pretty much made up of unknowns, except Corbin Bernsen & Tara Reid. While the snakes themselves look pretty good, the animation and effects could use some work. When the snakes strike and attach onto victims, like leeches, I found it was over computerized and made for those parts to appear quite cheesy. Towards the end, the small number of survivors use everything from fire extinguishers, flares and even shotguns to fend off the snakes. They eventually lure them all into a greenhouse, turn on some propane tanks and set it ablaze.
It comes to an end when the main scientist who was trying to protect his own name, finds himself in the back seat, proud of how he was trying to keep the whole ordeal under wraps. He then hears a growl and a hiss, looks down and is face to face with one of his own creations. The screen fades to black.
The story I found alright, but with the computerized animation overused, I am going to say this is definitely a movie that is ok to have in the background as noise, while you are doing something else.

I liked this movie. As the other reviewers point out, the snakes are pretty bad CGI and the story is pretty basic. Bad businessman wants to make money off mutant snakes. Read morePublished on May 17, 2011 by Mark L. Warrian
