Review

    A torturous 90 minute bore-fest that efficiently diminishes all the goodwill garnered by its far more entertaining and interesting predecessor.

    Following the escape of yet another genetically engineered Python, a special agent hires a young couple to transport some mysterious cargo to the site. Little do they know that they are playing their own part in desperate bid to get the giant man-eating Python back.

    The whole film is just boring and reeks of seriousness. The CGI is unbelievably appalling and the acting is amateurish, lacking any of the big personalities from the first film. Of all the characters to bring back, Zabka’s police officer turned special agent seems like a remarkably odd choice, especially when he turns into the big bad guy halfway through. The Pythons still have the acidic venom and armoured scales but there are lacking the tail scythes this time around. Their black-colouring is really bland but fortunately they appear very little in the film itself.

    On an interesting note, the entire opening sequence was developed and shot when the producers realised that the movie was long enough to be marketable, bearing in mind that the opening sequence is over ten minutes long. That fact pretty much sums up the entire movie: half-hearted, half-developed and reminiscent of someone’s last minute struggle to put a killer snake movie together.
