Picking up immediately where Anaconda 3 left off, herpetologist Amanda Hayes finally learns her employer Murdoch’s true colors when he hires a doctor to harvest a fresh supply of blood orchids to experiment with the regenerative nectar on a baby snake in order to seek treatment for his own terminal illness. Amanda is forced to secretly bring together another team of scientists whom face off against a heavily armed squad of Murdoch’s men to steal the coveted orchids before the killer Anaconda hunts both parties down.
User Reviews: Anaconda went from Hollywood blockbuster to Hollywood B-movie to Scyfy channel garbage and this 4th outing is most definetly the latter.
To its credit it follows on from part 3 pretty well, though considering the two movies were filmed back to back this isn’t all too shocking a fact.
Once again our Dr.Amanda Hayes is involved the anaconda/blood orchid lacklustre adventure though now we’ve lost the "Hoff" and gained the underrated though a tad hammy Linden Ashby.
The sfx are even worse than the previous movie but thankfully everything else is better, marginally better anyway.
The excellent John Rhys Davies also returns but yet again has a tiny role. Why have the best actor in the smallest role? Heartbreaking, truly.
Though the Anaconda franchise seems to have merged with Lake Placid I’m hoping this is the end of the solo movies, they’re simply not entertaining at this stage and the franchise has been milked far enough.
One for big fans of the franchise who don’t care about just how far the quality has dipped.
Carries on from the previous movie well
Really poor cgi
Plot is really generic
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Someone really needs to have a word with the creators about the anacondas teeth
An oddly large number of people seem to want to be eaten by giant snakes, who knew?
