Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: One never questions the realism of the remarkable animatronic and computer-generated effects, but it's hard to credit a snake that screams.

- Derek Adams, Time Out, Thursday, February 9, 2006

Rotten: Anaconda is trying to be a Jaws for the '90s, but, like last year's The Ghost and the Darkness, it falls short in several key areas.

- James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Rotten: A silly and plodding Jaws rip-off about a 40-foot man-eating snake on the prowl in the Brazilian rain forest.

- Joe Leydon, Variety, Saturday, October 18, 2008

A surprisingly star studded cast chew scenery like it's going out of style. Which isn't necessary a bad thing.

Sounds like a very cheesey B movie but actually it's a pretty good creature feature. Jon Voight puts in a great performance and the SFX are very good. Overall a cool enjoyable film.
