Boa is a suspenseful and chilling snake movie.
30 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are a number of movie that involve giant man-eating snakes in movies today. In 1997, there was the movie Anaconda, which stars Jennifer Lopez as a person whose is the crew of a documentary in the Amazon. And then there was this movie, Boa. The movie takes place in the Antartica, where a prison named New Alcatraz, is settled there in the middle of snowy nowhere. The prison warden is played by Craig Wasson. The engineer crew of the prison suspects that a rock formation is in the cold, solid ice of Antartica. But, what they don't know is that the rock formation is actually a giant man-eating prehistoric snake. Boa is a very suspenseful horror thriller that I did enjoy because the snake looks good. I know you guys out there thinks that the snake sucks because it's look bad in CGI. The story I though was moderate. I thought the actors in the movie were very good. You have Dean Cain who plays scientist that knows that the Warden is not helping his guards kill this snake. I think to my opinion that Boa have a good plot, a nice cast and a very good set of special effects. I'm giving a thumbs up on Boa, because of the cast, special effects and the story. Thumbs Up for Boa. I really think that this movie was more good than Python. I really enjoy Python and I really dug right into Boa because I do enjoy snake films. If you enjoy watching snake films, Boa is right up your alley. ★★★ 3 stars.
