When I first heard that Samuel L. Jackson was going to be in Snakes on a Plane I knew right on the spot that it would either be a blockbuster or a flop. The closer the film came to its premier it appeared that it would be the former. I mean who would have thought that a movie written on the internet would even make it to the theatre? Had it not been for the Jackson factor it might have been less likely.
Now you know that there are snakes on a plane, but why are there snakes on this plane? While cruising the countryside of Hawaii Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips) sees notorious gangster Eddie Kim (Byron Lawson) brutally murder a district attorney. Jones soon finds himself under the care of Nelville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) as they board a plane bound for the city of angels. Unknown to the Kim snuck a special delivery of deadly snakes aboard the plane. That’s all you need to know about the snakes.
I’m not the type of person who goes to internet blogs, so I missed most of the hype. Still though, there is a lot of hype from fan-made ads, to custom jewelry, to a Snakes on a Plane comic book series. To those who have never heard of this movie you must have been living under a rock for the last year or so. So in a nut shell, what I’m trying to say is: Go see Snakes on a Plane, a true summer blockbuster.
