Not bad...for a low-budget giant snake movie
18 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Worlds better than Python, maybe a little bit better than Python 2, and in terms in entertainment, better than Snake King. Boa is a unique film with the same kind of bad graphics like those used in others like it, but it is more entertaining than Python, a film I absolutely hate. Dean Cain leads the cast and he is perhaps the best actor on the screen, although his character's mood changes constantly and impossibly. First he's all upset because he thinks his wife has been killed by the snake and next scene, he's just concentrated on getting out of the prison and not even thinking about her. And the other members of the cast are either so-so or terrible. Overall, Boa is a better film than others of its kind, but not anywhere near a decent motion picture.
