Snakes on a Plane

FBI Special Agent Neville Flynn has to escort a key witness against a big mobster to Los Angeles on a plane. However, once the aircraft has lifted off, it becomes clear that it’s filled with deadly snakes. With still two hours of flight to go, Flynn has to make sure the plane doesn’t crash as well as keep his witness alive.

Sound and Vision:
During the first half hour of the movie, with fast moving scenes, there are quite some compression errors to be seen. Afterwards, we didn’t spot any other ones though so most of the movie is free of them. For the rest there’s a decent amount of detail, good contrast and nothing that can bother the viewing experience. Snakes on a Plane comes with a very aggressive DTS 6.1 ES track that does its job nicely and puts you in the middle of the plane. Only too bad that at times the track misses some focus and it would have been even better if the sounds of the snakes would have come from all around you.

As in good RCV tradition there are no extras

Sit back, relax, set your brain to zero and enjoy the ride. That’s in short what can be said about Snakes on a Plane. The storyline is laughable, the characters as deep as cardboard and the comedy is quite simplistic but as far as action goes, the movie does do a decent job. Don’t expect too much and you won’t get disappointed. Snakes on a Plane is an average action movie that does what it prmises but nothing more. If you’re looking for a light movie to check out on a Saturday night, you won’t go wrong with this one. RCV gives the dvd their usual treatment which means decent image and sound but no extras. Since it’s a “bigger” movie than usual, they even added a menu! (probably since there’s sound options to choose from)
