I have had it with all of these mother f***ing 2 star movies on my mother f***ing cable. Actually, I'm not, because I have seen the epitome of a 2 star movie, "Snakes on a Plane". This is what 2 star movies are made to be.How untimely to see this movie now, more than a year and half after it first generated buzz for its inane title. The buzz may be over but the hissing, spitting, and biting, continues.
"Snakes on a Plane" is a snake bite above most "cheesy" disaster movies. First, you get Samuel L. Jackson in a lead role. He's great in every movie he is in, even the crappy ones. Second, you get the great line Samuel L. Jackson delivers in regards to his feelings about snakes and the plane they infest. Other than that, it is the same disaster movie you have seen dozens of times before.
The movie starts as any disaster movie would, with the signs of danger and the long introduction of the characters who will survive until the end. Everyone fits into a category we have seen before: the ditzy one, mr. ego, the jerk whose death we relish, the really nice person, the guy with helpful fighting skills, the hero, the comic relief guy, the "it was my last flight" lady, and Samuel L. Jackson. The snakes are all pretty much the same
