The intentional campiness of this movie both succeeds and fails at times. I found this to be pretty entertaining nonetheless. The movie doesn't quite become silly enough though to justify the premise, but isn't serious enough either to make it actually good.

Review Samuel L. Jackson is on record as saying this movie isn't for critics. He's right about that. The problem is, it's not for many other people, either. Unless they're stoned. Or drunk. Or just enjoy making fun of bad movies (in other words, the Mystery Science Theater 3000 audience). Most of the time, when a studio decides to hide a film from critics, they do so on the sly. With Snakes on a Plane, New Line Cinema has trumpeted the fact, using this marketing line: "We want the fans to see it first." Translation: we don't want any negative advance word spoiling a big opening day. They needn't have worried, however. Critics could spew bile in reviews, and it wouldn't make a bit of difference at the box office. Snakes on a Plane is motherf***in' fireproof. Director David Ellis has made the film he was hired to make.

Review Whatever it may be -- the worst candidate for an in-flight movie since "United 93," a fascinating case study on the power of Internet publicity, a chance for Samuel L. Jackson to kick some serious asp -- New Line's long-awaited "Snakes on a Plane" is at its best when it surrenders to the exuberant trashiness and matter-of-fact hilarity promised by its title...Sound design throughout comprises a lot of screaming and engine noise, with regular shock notes provided by Trevor Rabin's suitably menacing score. Closing credits are accompanied by the musicvideo for Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)," one of the first and scarcely the least of the pic's numerous pop-song tributes.

Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun ...[Jackson] glowers and growls and acts the hero better than any actor out there.
Jack Mathews, New York Daily News Hilariously funny, full of fang-popping scares, and guaranteed to increase travel by train.
Scott Foundas, LA Weekly ...the most exuberantly trashy delight of this summer movie season or last.
