Storyline

Cancer-terminal tycoon Peter Murdoch's secret Wexel Hall Pharmaceuticals lab has developed a blood orchid extract cure. To examine why it works optimally in snakes, they also bread a super-anaconda strain. But the original pair escapes, leaving a bloody trail of corpses. Murdoch runs, instructing his staff to clean up. They keep failing and being eaten like unsuspecting locals, some alive, even after enlisting ruthless big game hunter Hammett. The fast-growing pregnant monster sheds its skin, thus disabling the only tracking device. Written by KGF Vissers

Beware: This is NOT Anaconda 3...
28 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Anaconda 3: The Offspring (or so it's called) tells the story about testing gone wrong in a facility, which causes an outbreak of two deadly Anacondas who have gone under scientific experiments and are now deadly, larger and stronger than ever. A mercenary (David Hasselhoff) and his team are sent to capture it, along with a scientist (Crystal Allen) who tags along. Anaconda 3 is the first of two Sci-Fi channel sequels to the first two Anaconda movies, and quite frankly...it sucks!

I was excited for this movie, for the pure fact that I really enjoyed the second and that I thought this movie would be a cheesy, fun b-movie...even for Sci-Fi channel standards. I was impressed with the stills, and well...David Hasselhoff battling snakes? I so wanted to see this! Unfortunately, it's a complete mess and doesn't even feel like an Anaconda movie. It's as if the writers of the script just slapped on the "Anaconda 3" title. Not once, apart from the opening sequence with the camera panning over the forest, did this movie feel like an Anaconda movie. I'm convinced it isn't.

The acting was mediocre, and Crystal Allen was the best actor in the movie. What annoyed me was the fact that they sold David Hasselhoff as the title name in the movie, when he is hardly even in the movie. He appears briefly at the beginning, then once again and then doesn't show up until 45 minutes into the movie. People expecting John Rhys Davies to have a good amount of screen time will be disappointed also, because he's underused also. The characters weren't very entertaining and the mercenaries felt like idiots waving guns around. They were also bought into the script very quickly, and just felt thrown in. Most of the actors are foreign also, so their obvious fake accents didn't help. As for the character development? There was none.

The CGI for the snakes was crappy, and if you thought the CGI in Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid was bad, this is miles worse. The Anaconda only looked decent enough when wrapping itself around victims. The kill scenes were easily the most entertaining part of the movie, because they were bloody, stupid, unrealistic and silly. But then, even these were rather bad...because all the fake blood splatter did not help things, especially when it looks computer generated and very cheap. Soundtrack was awful, and had a constant cheesy theme playing from start to finish. Dialogue was meh...the occasional "scientific" line thrown in from Crystal Allen's character.

I was also confused by the movie, because I had no ideas what part of the world the characters were at! There would be non-English speaking foreigners one second being eaten, and then an American woman and her kid relaxing in the sun. Then there would be an old, foreign town shown in a flashback and so forth. Most of the characters looked foreign, but spoke with American accents and I know the movie was filmed in Romania, but come on! I had no idea where the characters were supposed to be, and I also wish they used a boat and river in the movie, like the first two. Most of the time, it's running in the woods or driving around in a car with a fake backdrop.

Overall, Anaconda 3 "isn't" Anaconda 3, so don't be fooled. In fact, it's just a movie that's cashing in on the title and marketing itself as a sequel, when it really isn't. People who hated the first two will hate this most likely, and those who enjoyed both (or one) of the first two movies, will most likely hate this one too. I've seen worse from Sci-Fi, but I've seen better. I'll watch the 4th one, but I predict it will be just as bad as this one. Disappointing! This isn't a sequel as far as I'm concerned! Avoid.

2/10
