Controllers displays are not in color, do not show a compass ring around each target, and do not have an arrow pointing in the direction of travel. They also do not show the terrain as if looking at a map, but rather they have minimum safe sector altitude blocks that the aircraft are shown in. The display will also show the aircraft's ground speed displayed within the data block. See more »
What can I say? I'm a secret fan of 'over the top' action and horror films. Especially when it comes with a lot of lots of humour and innuendo, but I'm not a fan of Snake on a Plane.
There are three potential draws to this film: The comedy of the situation; The horror; and The novelty of hundreds of snakes being of a plane.
Firstly, this film isn't written as a tongue-in-cheek horror or a comedy, and there are only 1 or 2 points in the film where you'll smile to yourself. If you want to get the feel of the film, the trailer genuinely represents the movie, a horror.
Secondly, if you're expecting a film full of action and shocks, you won't be disappointed. It doesn't stand out above other movies, but it always keeps your attention.
Thirdly, Although the novelty of Snakes of a Plane doesn't wear off, but you'll leave the cinema thinking "what was all the fuss about".
I know this movie has a high rating, but it doesn't add up. A) Many of the reviews where written before the film was released and, B) The breakdown of user ratings has a lot less variation than normal 77% of people rating the movie 10/10, with only 7% of people giving it 9/10 - Why such an enormous gap?
