anaconda-1By Scott Goldfine

A documentary filmmaker (Jennifer Lopez), her cameraman (Ice Cube) and the rest of the crew voyage up the Amazon in this surprisingly deft thriller. Their journey turns into a grisly odyssey shortly after they rescue a mysterious snake trapper (Jon Voight) from his stranded boat.

This technically superior film features startling visuals and a marvelously off-kilter performance by Voight.
