Snakes on a Plane

Theatrical Release: August 18, 2006
Snakes on a Plane


Samuel L. Jackson stars in the intense action feature Snakes On A Plane from director David Ellis (Final Destination 2, Cellular). Jackson plays an FBI agent who is escorting a witness on a flight from Hawaii to Los Angeles when an assassin releases hundreds of deadly snakes on a commercial airplane in order to eliminate the witness. The FBI agent, along with a rookie pilot, frightened crew and passengers must then band together in a desperate attempt to survive.

Dove Review

This film would be pretty frightening for younger viewers or viewers who are fearful of two things–flying on planes and snakes. It is realistically done. In the content area it doesn’t pass Dove approval. It has a ton of strong language in it and also partial female nudity. The horror aspects are as well done as anything I have seen recently and the snakes bite people everywhere you can imagine: the nose, the mouth, the rear, in the genitals, the ear…well, you get the idea. There is not much left to the imagination and it is pretty bloody in spots. There are other Dove approved films showing right now such as “The Ant Bully,” and “Zoom.” These films are great for the family. In fact, instead of flying with snakes on the plane, how about visiting some domestic animals in “Barnyard”?
