Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

South Pacific Air Lines no longer exists, but was "re-created" (in a fictional sense) for the film. The airline began service from Honolulu to Tahiti on April 2, 1960 and folded sometime after. See more »

Goofs

If the aircraft did in fact undergo catastrophic decompression as shown, the cabin air would go milky white for a few seconds. This is due to the reduced pressure in the atmosphere bringing the moisture in the cabin to a point where it is visible, like when opening a soda can and seeing a brief flash of visible vapor.

Very little to offer those not of the cult following.
19 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the 10p.m. showing and I must say that this movie was nothing special. Although I did not leave the theater wanting my time back (as I don't actually pay for movies anymore) I didn't really find any redeeming qualities.

There were a few lines and such that made me chuckle, but mostly the film seemed to consist of rampant fan service to the younger (in mind more than age as this film is rated R) male audience. The fan service seemed out of place and rather distracting as well. I know you all want to hear Samuel L. say his infamous line, but let's be honest, it's a whole lot of hype for very little pay off. The only truly horrible part of the film was the CG, which looked very digitized and did not mesh well with the live action on the screen.

Now I am a reasonable man, I knew going into the theater that I wasn't going to be seeing "Casablanka," and I am at least thankful that this film is an original (albiet inane) idea and not some re-make or franchise spin off. However to be honest, if you are not a part of the cult following you are probably better off spending your money elsewhere and seeing the film either in a second run theater in a few weeks or renting it in a few months.
