Plot

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Shooting a documentary about a long-lost Indian tribe on the Amazon River, director Terri Flores (Lopez) and members of her crew including cameraman Danny Rich (Ice Cube) and Professor Steven Cale (Stoltz) come across stranded snake hunter Paul Sarone (Voight) and help him, believing he knows how to find the tribe they're searching for, but Sarone acts strangely and the crew suspect something. When Cale is incapacitated after a malfunction with his scuba gear (leaving him unconscious for nearly the rest of the film), Sarone takes command of the boat...and the crew. They are then forced to help him achieve his true objective; hunting down and capturing a record-breaking Green Anaconda he had been tracking. During the process, several members of the crew are killed before the snake itself is shot dead and Sarone incapacitated. Later on, Terri and Danny, two of the surviving members of the crew, are captured when Sarone catches up to them and then used as bait in an attempt to capture a second, larger Anaconda. The two escape, and Sarone himself is then killed by his quarry before the snake is finally slain. Afterwards, the survivors of the expedition finally locate the natives they were originally searching for and begin filming their documentary as the movie ends.

Scientific accuracy

The movie contains many errors about the behavior of the anaconda, including its speed (anacondas are big, but slow, especially on land, they are much slower than a running man), reproductive habits, and disgorging freshly-caught prey simply to kill and eat again. In fact, most snakes only do this after being frightened or startled and feel the need to get away quickly. In addition, one scene of the movie wrongly portrayed new-born anacondas as less than 12 inches long when in reality, they are two feet long when born, and quite capable of swimming away from danger rather than being killed (Sarone walks away with some babies to take them to their 'mama' in the film, but are seen later in an abandoned house Sarone used for his trap) . The film is correct, however, in that Anaconda's continue to grow until they die. Species 4, see article. ...

As for the anacondas themselves, unless you suffer from fear of snakes (ophidiophibia), you are unlikely to be terrorized by the mix of computer- generated and real snakes.
