SnakeEater Reviews

Viewers in search of mindless action will be the only ones able to sit through this routine straight-to-video entry. A cop nicknamed "Soldier"(Lorenzo Lamas) uses the experience he gained as a Marine commando in his work as an undercover cop. After his parents are killed and his sister is kidnapped by a group of backwoods rednecks, "Soldier" goes up-river to have a showdown with them. Lamas cuts a decent figure as an action hero, but the film's DELIVERANCE-style plotline, and deliberate lack of originality, do little to make SNAKEEATER stand out from all other kick-butt titles on video store shelves. (Profanity, violence, nudity.)
