"One important reason why "Snakes on a Plane" works is "supercool" Samuel L. Jackson. Quite honestly, I don't think the
film would be as good if it were Josh Lucas, or Dennis Quaid, or Kurt Russell fighting the snakes."
Mike McGranaghan AISLE SEAT
"It's the funniest thriller of the year, although I'm not sure if everything we laugh at is supposed to be amusing."
Jeff Strickler MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
"Snakes on a Plane delivers exactly what it promises. Nothing more, nothing less."
Cindy White NOW PLAYING MAGAZINE
"It's a relief to discover that Snakes on a Plane actually is what we hoped it would be: a really, really enjoyable bad movie."
Eric D Snider ERICDSNIDER.COM
"There's a certain knee-jerk impulse to bash Snakes, just because of all the ridiculous buildup, but the film delivers on its promise of reptilian fun, with a camp mix of comedy, horror and suspense."
Lisa Rose NEWARK STAR-LEDGER
"Truly, this is the greatest movie about snakes on a plane ever made so far!"
Gregory Weinkauf ÜBERCINé
"I don't know if snakes have a booty, but I know Samuel L. Jackson kicks some in this campy classic! I even thought I saw some Homeland Security guys in the crowd taking notes, just in case."
Willie Waffle WAFFLEMOVIES.COM
"Rational people can agree on two things: Snakes are evil, and nobody swears more entertainingly than Samuel L. Jackson."
Mark Rahner SEATTLE TIMES
"Please ensure that your disbelief is safely stowed in the overhead compartment, as unsecured continuity problems may otherwise hinder your enjoyment of the ride."
Alex Markerson E! ONLINE
"This slitheringly good ode to '80s movie-style inconsequentiality is destined to satisfy anyone willing to leave their brains at the door and go along for the turbulent ride."

We know you play an FBI agent, but what’s your real role in this film?|
"I’m the hero, come on, you know that. I do what heroes do. I act brave, kill snakes, and save the day."
We hear this isn’t the first time you’ve battled snakes?
"You know, when I was a kid, snakes didn’t bother me that much because I just spent my summers in the country and if we saw a snake, the snake was in a lot more trouble than we were. Because we chased it and killed it."
Was it a different experience shooting this movie, or was it just another job?
"Coming to work was kind of like going to a big amusement part and getting on a thrill ride. I mean, we’re on this set and the hydraulics are working the plane and we’re kind of stumbling around. You’re doing stuff and then there’s a snake over here that pops out and you have to react to the snake in the midst of all this smoke and stuff."
What was it like the first time you saw the snakes on set?
"The first day I showed up I went to see the snakes and see how the crew was dealing with them. They were doing the test of when the oxygen masks falls down and they were dumping a big bucket of snakes on a guy’s head. It was fun to watch the snakes hit him and then go into his pockets and down his shirt."
What was your favorite scene to shoot?
"I guess the initial encounter when everything starts to go crazy and the snakes first show up because my partner goes crazy and runs downstairs. But I stay and hear all the screaming, then I go down there and there’s snakes everywhere."
