R | | Action, Thriller
An F.B.I. Agent takes on a plane full of deadly venomous snakes, deliberately released to kill a witness being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify against a mob boss.
The initial script for the film was one hundred twenty-two pages long, when David R. Ellis signed on to direct. After re-working the script, along with his Producing Director and Samuel L. Jackson, for more than four months, the script was narrowed down to one hundred three pages.
Go, get outta here. Go!
(at around 1h 27 mins) Flynn tells the passengers to hold their breaths before he shoots the windows, thereby depressurizing the interior of the plane. In reality, if a person holds their breath during depressurization, a 'lung over-expansion injury' can occur. This is why scuba divers are taught "Never hold your breath".
Before the credits, there is a quick flash of a open-mouthed snake ready to bite the camera. During the credits, Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It!)" music video plays.
