While practicing motocross in Hawaii, Sean Jones witnesses the brutal murder of an important American prosecutor by the powerful mobster Eddie Kim. He is protected and persuaded by the FBI agent Neville Flynn to testify against Eddie in Los Angeles. They embark in the red-eye Flight 121 of Pacific Air, occupying the entire first-class. However, Eddie dispatches hundred of different species of snakes airborne with a time operated device in the luggage to release the snakes in the flight with the intent of crashing the plane. Neville and the passengers have to struggle with the snakes to survive. Written by

If you got at all caught up in the hype of this movie, even so much as
chuckled at any of the viral videos inspired by its epic title (or at
the title itself!), you will LOVE this film. It was everything I had
hoped for and more. Sex, drugs, violence, gore, guns, other unlikely
weapons, deadly reptiles, predictable plot, occasionally questionable
acting, tacky CGI, factual inaccuracies, physical impossibilities... I
mean, this movie has something for anyone with a pulse.
It has achieved the perfect balance: it is bad enough to be funny, but
good enough to be great. If you ever find yourself less than thrilled
to be watching it, all you have to do is remember the title and
suddenly it's amazing! Really the best thing about it (other than the
concept/title) is that, on the whole, it's not a terribly made film.
Plus, at least for the screening at our theater, the whole audience was
completely into it. People were cheering and clapping and everyone was
psyched just to be there.
If you think the idea is lame, if you don't "get it" and don't want to,
well, I don't know what to tell you. You've already made up your mind
what you're going to think about this movie. But even if you've never
heard of it, approach with an open mind and you won't be disappointed.
GO SEE IT!
