A career low for everybody involved
18 February 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The last years of Roy Scheider's life had him making one direct-to-video movie after another. Most of them were awful, and "Red Serpent" may be his worst. He only shows up for a few scenes, but he manages to give a really awful performance in part due to his really unconvincing Russian accent. (And he has a sex scene showing him with his shirt unbuttoned - ugh!) As for the rest of the movie, it manages for the most part to be even worse than Scheider's performance. You can tell they tried to save this in the editing room due to some real awkward editing and insertion of new material. But there are countless other flaws, like bad audio or inappropriate music. But the biggest flaw of the movie is that it's so boring, with most of the movie devoted to dreary chat or people stumbling in the snow. The reason why I'm not giving this one star is that there is occasionally some nice visual candy, ranging from impressive camera movement to pleasing cinematography. Though the movie is still definitely a stinker!
