Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [We] have SoaP to remind us of what a B movie can be when it's produced with utter contempt for its target audience. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 14, 2007

Fresh: The director, David R. Ellis, is not exactly Alfred Hitchcock -- he's often messy in his stagings -- but as his picture rattles along its thrill a minute flight plan he does manage to induce a certain amnesia about its preposterous premise. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: You'll never complain about those in-flight meals again. Things could be so much worse. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This Internet-promoted lark about a Hawaii-to-L.A. flight besieged by a frenzied tangle of snakes is hilariously funny, full of fang-popping scares, and guaranteed to increase travel by train. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Great Movie

I really reccomend this movie.


well i'm not sure what to say... it was at times a little too much... but i just love these types of movies and i don't really know why. it was OK

This movie is the bomb

I love this movie I'm only 11yrs. Old and I understood the whole theme of the movie, if there is one. I've watched it about 10 or 11 times and i still love it. The actors are very good at acting scared. My only question is -did they use real snakes-??? xD
