When a documentary crew traveling through the Amazon jungle, picks up a stranded man, they are unaware of the trouble that will occur. This stranger's hobby is to capture the giant Anaconda snake, and plans to continue targeting it on their boat, by any means necessary.Written by
The large snakes in the film are supposed to be "green anacondas" (Eunectes murinus), the heaviest type of snake in the world and one of the longest. The term "anaconda" also applies to three other known species of snakes: the yellow anaconda (Eunectes notaeus), the darkly-spotted anaconda (Eunectes deschauenseei), and the Bolivian anaconda (Eunectes beniensis).

When Terri, after just climbing out of the river, is trying to help Danny when he is first attacked by the anaconda (1:09:30), she bends over and shows that the back of her top is dry (light) while the front is wet (dark). See more »
Is it just me or does the jungle make you really, really horny?

The version shown on the Sci-fi channel has several scenes added, including Westrige complaining about his room, Cale musing that the monkeys are acting like they sense a predator nearby, and a dinner scene where Westrige expresses reservations about Sarone. See more »
1: As a movie that turned out to be much worse than it intended to be. In which case it's obvious that an actor like Jon Voight would overact to try and make it look like it was intended to be "bad". The special f/x, intended or not, are done with computer animation and are, in that category, the worst i've seen yet. A snake that moves like a cartoon. If it was the movieproducers' intention to make a "bad" movie, they would have done better to use the old fashioned special f/x, with a rubber prop.
2:As a movie that was, indeed, intended to be a b-movie. However, since the director Luis Llosa previously only made "serious" action movies like "the Specialist" and "Sniper", i have to seriously doubt it was his intension to make a "tongue-in-cheek" movie. If it WAS his intention, he nearly succeeded in making a fun "bad" movie.
Personally, there were only two things in this movie i enjoyed: The voluptuous Jennifer Lopez, and the magnificently "bad" performance of Jon Voight, who with just the facial expressions brings a smile to your face.
