Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid
Somewhere in Borneo there’s a flower that can prolong the life of any cell and with that may contain the secret to eternal youth for humanity. To save their company (their investor wants to get his money back) a couple of scientists head out to Borneo to bring back enough of the Blood Orchid to finish their investigation and create a medicine that can rejuvenate people. However, their journey is long and dangerous and to reach the place where the flower exists, they’ll have to cross a territory that inhabited by huge anacondas…
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is good without any noticeable compression errors. Contrast is decent, the amount of detail good and everything looks quite sharp. Good stuff.
The soundtrack is of equal quality without having anything special.
There’s only one decent extra on the disc and that’s a “Making Of” which nicely covers the most important parts of the production process for this film. No unnecessary crap about how much fun the actors had while shooting but only the interesting parts are present. Quite informative.
The rest contains deleted scenes and some trailers
Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid is the sequel to the 1997 movie featuring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, John Voight and a bunch of other well-known actors. Despite that movie being horrible, some people must have found it interesting enough to make a sequel so we end up with Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. The storyline is silly as ever, all possible prerogatives are present and everything is souped up with a whole bunch of computer-generated special effects. Still interested ? Well, then I can tell you that if you don’t mind the overacting and the stupidity of the story (scientists going on a dangerous expedition to save the company they run themselves ?), you’ll be able to expect an entertaining no-brains-needed action movie that could just as well have been a TV movie for a Saturday evening. Except that those work on a smaller budget…
