Storyline

In New York, the ambitious Dr. Jack Byron and his associate Gordon Mitchell present the research of his assistant Sam Rogers to the CEO and board of directors of a corporation to sponsor a scientific expedition to Borneo. The objective is to find a flower, Blood Orchid, that flourishes for a couple of weeks every seven years and could be a fountain of youth, prolonging the expectation of life of human beings. They are succeeded and once in Borneo, they realize that it is the raining season and there is no boat available to navigate on the river. They pay US$ 50,000.00 to convince Captain Bill Johnson and his partner Tran to sail to the location. After an accident in a waterfall, the survivors realize that a pack of anacondas have gathered for mating and their nest is nearby the plantation of Blood Orchid, which made them bigger and bigger.

"What, so your tellin' me there's some snake orgy in the jungle!"
20 February 2005 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. The sequel that no one asked for. I guess since the Sci-fi Channel plays a giant snake movie EVERY weekend, studio execs figured there must be an audience for this tripe. Plot: an attractive cast of almost famous people go for a boat ride in the middle of the jungle and are attacked by giant snakes. Yeah, it's pretty much just like the first film, except J-lo is no where in sight so I guess that makes it a little bit better. I felt sorry for Jon Voight for making an appearance in the original. This time I feel sorry for director Dwight Little. He directed the underrated Halloween 4 and his older films are far superior to Anacondas. The script is by the numbers so don't expect any surprises. The only surprise I found was that the computer-generated snakes have come a long way from the original film. Stay tuned for Anaconda vs. Boa vs. Python.
