The trashy cult film from 2006 did not win the hearts of the critics, but the viewers were over the moon even before the film started. But if you still want to see “Snakes on a Plane” on Amazon Prime Video, you have to hurry now.
Update from February 23, 2023: But now quickly, who the iconic B-movie “Snakes on a Plane” with Samuel L. Jackson If you still want to see it on Amazon Prime Video, you have to hurry (watch it on Prime Video). As Amazon announces on a list, the extraordinary film flies in less than 30 days out of the Prime Video program. An exact date has not yet been given, but it should be in the course of March at the latest.
On Amazon Prime Video: Snakes on a Plane
For star actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film’s title was enough to star in it. The content? It doesn’t matter as long as the movie has a cool name. And that’s what “Snakes on a Plane” has, even before the start of the film, the cinematic “masterpiece” became a hype. Blogs, web forums and websites – it was talked about everywhere. There were even protests when the film studio wanted to change the title to “Pacific Air Flight 121”. They were successful and “Snakes on a Plane” kept the both abstruse and auspicious name.
You can see the result from April 21, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video – at no extra charge. The film is included directly in the streaming flat rate (see Amazon Prime Video). But what is it actually about again?
Even the trailer has something:
In the IMDB we can read: “An FBI agent deals with a plane full of deadly venomous snakeswho were deliberately released to kill a witness who was being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify against a mob boss.” Sounds like a real story, doesn’t it? Certainly not. That becomes correspondingly clearer Lexicon of International Film:
“Less horror film than disaster film, whose gags, which are always on the verge of tastelessness, are staged with so much disarming carelessness that you can’t help but laugh.”
Would you like even more trash? We also find it on Netflix:
What do the critics say about trash films?
As expected, the further criticism from professionals and viewers is ambivalent for such a gold piece of trash film. The IMDb only gets 5.5 out of 10 points, the pros at Rotten Tomatoes are a little more forgiving, awarding at least 69 percent on the tomatometer. For normal viewers, on the other hand, it is only enough for 49 percent. In short: Really nice dirt that you must have seen together with friends. You can’t really take the film seriously, but you can take it lightly and humorously.
Tip: Watch in the original. Only then do you really get something from the following line in the film from the mouth of Samuel L. Jackson:
“I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!”
Written especially for him, as an ironic allusion to his other films, in which such curses are part of the standard repertoire.
