In New York, the ambitious Dr. Jack Byron (Matthew Marsden) and his associate Gordon Mitchell (Morris Chestnut) present the research of his assistant Sam Rogers (KaDee Strickland) to the CEO and board of directors of a corporation to sponsor a scientific expedition to Borneo. The objective is to find a flower, Blood Orchid, that flourishes for a couple of weeks every seven years and could be a fountain of youth, prolonging the expectation of life of human beings. They are succeeded and once in Borneo, they realize that it is the raining season and there is no boat available to navigate on the river. They pay US$ 50,000.00 to convince Captain Bill Johnson (Johnny Messner) and his partner Tran (Karl Yune) to sail to the location. After an accident in a waterfall, the survivors realize that a pack of anacondas have gathered for mating and their nest is nearby the plantation of Blood Orchid, which made them bigger and bigger.
I saw "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid" with a very low expectation based on the IMDb User Rating, but I liked this entertaining adventure a lot. The story is full of action and humor, and I laughed a lot when Cole calls Sam of "Lorena Babbitt" when she cuts the head of one anaconda. There are the usual clichés of this type of predictable B-movie, but I had a good surprise in the end. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Anaconda 2: A Caçada Pela Orquídea Sangrenta" ("Anaconda 2: The Hunt for the Bloody Orchid")
