Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Snakes on a Plane

    An FBI agent has to save a witness along with other passengers and fight hundreds of deadly snakes. The filmmakers pile phobias on top of each other the fear of flying, the fear of enclosed places, and the fear of icky things with fangs. “Snakes on a Plane” is that mainly most of the film was finished in a studio which means that mainly the whole movie was made on a plane.

    A young man Sean (Nathan Phillips, acting as bad as he can) who has witnessed a brutal Hawaiian crime lord Eddie Kim (Byron Lawson) murder must be escorted safely from Hawaii to Los Angeles to testify and FBI agent Neville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) is chosen to escort him safely. But the crime boss wants the witness dead because he doesn't want to end up in jail, so the mob boss smuggles hundreds of venomous snakes: Big ones, small ones, cobras, asps, adders, onto the commercial aircraft in a crate timed to release its deadly cargo halfway over the Pacific. How that cargo got past airport security is beyond me because there was no proper indication of snakes getting on the plane.

    Flynn along with a frightened flight crew and passengers then band together in a desperate attempt to survive those deadly snakes. The passengers has no other choice but to stick together to stay alive.

The passengers aboard South Pacific Flight 121 are a colorful bunch, all kinds of people fools, lunchmeat, and the resourceful. The rap star (Flex Alexander) with the videogame-addict bodyguard (Kenan Thompson); the jerk businessman (Gerard Plunkett); the cute young brothers traveling alone (Casey Dubois and Daniel Hogarth); the couple (Samantha McLeod and Taylor Kitsch); the Latino single mother (Elsa Pataky) with her baby; and the neurotic glamour girl (Rachel Blanchard).

    The plane's flight crew includes tough Claire (Julianna Margulies), gleefully chauvinist co-pilot Rick (the ubiquitous David Koechner) and a weathered senior flight attendant Grace (Lin Shaye).

    The snakes attack is indeed brutal and director David R. Ellis plays them for gross-out comic shock. The snakes keep on coming out of every space a jumbo jet has to offer. Add one more phobia to the list; check the toilet bowl before unzipping you may find snakes in there too. The snakes are actually computer-generated but realistic enough to induce genuine terror in anyone.

    Why don't these stupid passengers listen to FBI agent Neville Flynn when he said move to the front. The one lady who didn't listen to Flynn and didn't move to the front, so she got ate up with poisonous venom.
