(fr) wrote: I write this in the vain hope that it will prevent more money going to the producers! This is the worst film ever made. You just do not want to know what Tara Fitzgerald is scratching on her leg. This has haunted me for 7 years. Don't watch it!
(it) wrote: Nothing to write home about, but it has its moments.
(ag) wrote: Wait... what? Who the hell greenlighted this trainwreck? Even the premise is so weird it defies belief. Laughably entertaining.
(fr) wrote: An interesting story adapted aptly into an enjoyable horror film. It's setting and pleasant cinematography gives a Zodiac vibe that translates well on screen.
(mx) wrote: Super cheese, but pretty entertaining!
(it) wrote: I saw this on TV. J-Lo's ass could have eaten that Anaconda alive. But yeah, this movie is trash.
(jp) wrote: A lot of action, both in the air and on earth, but of bad quality. Not even the enjoyment of discovering the criminals.

(br) wrote: Pretty entertaining, not quite as good as the first.
(fr) wrote: Not terrible, just a bit of a so-so movie in my opinion. Starring Pierce Brosnan and Gerard Butler, this film is passable as your typical suspense thriller if that's what your looking for.The performances from the main actors - Brosnan, Butler and Bello - are decent and whilst I was not captivated by the movie, we didn't consider turning it off, either.To the films credit, I didn't see the twist coming towards the end and accordingly, it took me by surprise - so I give the movie credit on that basis (even though I tend to never see the twists coming so it might just be me!).There isn't a lot else to say about this movie. It's pretty well paced overall, although I did feel like a fast forward a couple of times. As I've said, the performances put forward by the three main (and essentially only) actors are solid enough.Have a look at this movie if you can't find anything else worthwhile in the weekly section.
