Cancer-terminal tycoon Peter Murdoch's secret Wexel Hall Pharmaceuticals lab has developed a blood orchid extract cure. To examine why it works optimally in snakes, they also bread a super-anaconda strain. But the original pair escapes, leaving a bloody trail of human corpses. Murdoch runs, instructing his staff to clean up. They keep failing and being eaten like unsuspecting locals, some alive, even after enlisting ruthless big game hunter Hammett. The fast-growing pregnant monster sheds its skin, thus disabling the only tracking device they have.
I enjoyed watching this film and would recommend other to give it a try , (as I am) but this movie, although enjoyable to watch due to the better than average acting fails to add anything new to its storyline that is all too familiar to these types of movies.

It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.

It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties. It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.

A mercenary-for-hire accepts a mission from a billionaire to capture a dangerous snake that could possibly help cure a terminal illness. Anaconda and Anaconda 2 were of course no masterpiece of cinema either but they were a heck tone of fun especially the first one unfortunately this one however was beyond bad in alot of many ways. The Terrible cgi that make the previous 2 look like classics, the horrible perfomances from the untalented cast such as David Hasselhoff and the over the top kills make for a really and i mean really god awful flick.

Forget the horrible second film in the series (ANACONDA 2: HUNT FOR THE BLOOD ORCHID) as ANACONDA III is a much better production and in much the same spirit as the ultra-cheesy original. Yes, this is a cheapo B-movie TV production, filled to the brim with cheesy CGI, bad acting and a script that goes around in circles for ages. But it's also a whole lot of fun.B-movie fans will be in their element with this action-packed storyline, which sees a pair of gigantic killer snakes on the loose, pursued by a pack of bounty hunters with material reward in mind. Half the film consists of David Hasslehoff and John Rhys-Davies trying to outdo each other in terms of scenery-chewing, and the rest consists of the fake-looking snakes ripping up the human cast members in increasingly gory ways.Yes, this is a film all about the kills, and they're satisfyingly bloody by genre standards, about the same as in my other cult favourite, AZTEC REX. Watching a series of poor actors getting munched on is an often hilarious experience, and it helps the film run along smoothly. ANACONDA III: OFFSPRING is certainly no classic, but I enjoyed the heck out of it.

Anaconda III starts as rich billionaire Peter Murdoch (John Rhys-Davis) gets a guided tour of his multi million dollar investment, a state of the art scientific laboratory where a team of scientists have created a couple of huge sixty foot Anacondas, Murdoch is dying from cancer & using a serum from the Blood Orchid a possible cure has been found. Unfortunately the serum is lethal to all life apart from Snake's, in an effort to understand why they are immune these scientists genetically created two huge Anacondas but the elusive serum safe for humans still evades them. While walking around the laboratory Murdoch uses a flashlight to look into the Anacondas enclosure which annoys them, the Anacondas break out & kill anyone within reach. Murdoch escapes & orders Pinkus (Ryan McCluskey) & Dr. Amanda Hayes (Crystal Allen) to track the Anacondas & recapture them, using big game hunter Hammett (David Hasselhoff) to lead the mission the hunters soon find themselves as the hunted as the Anacondas kill them off...Also known as Anaconda 3: Offspring this American & Romanian co-production was photographed & directed by Don E. FauntLeRoy & originally premiered on the Sy-Fy Channel during 2008 before it was then released on DVD in an uncut gorier version, it's this DVD version that I will be basing my comments on. The second sequel to the truly awful Anaconda (1997) which for me is one of the worst big budget Hollywoof horror films ever made, it's a film that I really despise actually although the direct follow up Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004) was a big improvement & not that bad so how does Anaconda III measure up? Well it depends on how you approach it really, taken as serious sci-fi horror creature feature it's pathetic but as a fun way to pass 90 odd minutes & have a bit of a laugh along the way then it's not too bad at all. Anaconda III is a film that you can laugh at or with, it doesn't really matter one way or the other because if you can get over the terrible script, the vague plot, the awful character's, the bad dialogue & absurd set-pieces then there's a lot of fun to be had here. While Anaconda III is never going to win any awards for, well, anything I did have a good time watching it. The plot is silly, the end has the whole world in jeopardy as the giant Anaconda is pregnant with lots of baby Anaconda but it's never explained how the Anacondas could take over the world in ten hours, the experiments that created the giant Anaconda are vague there's far too much footage of people running through the woods looking for the Anaconda. The big plot twist at the end is easy to see coming.Anaconda III is quite a silly film, these Snake's seem to roar & growl rather than hiss like most Snake's do in reality & why do they have a full set of sharp teeth? I though Snake's just had two large fangs to inject poison? There are some goofy looking CGI shots of a toothy grinning Anaconda, in general the CGI work is poor, the Anaconda seem to slide along the ground rather than anything else & they move a little fast at times. There are some silly looking effects shots that's for sure. There's a surprising amount of gore here, people have their heads bitten off, people are impaled, blood spurts, limbs are severed, various mutilated bodies are seen, a chewed up Goat is seen, various people are eaten, some are shot & some are stabbed. Competently shot but without much style Anaconda III is typical made for television fare.Probably shot on a low budget & filmed in Romania this is maybe slightly better made than the usual Sy-Fy Channel creature feature & certainly gorier. The acting is bad, the main man himself David Hasselhoff is always fun to watch but he surprisingly doesn't feature as much as maybe you may expect. Genre vet John Rhys-Davies turns up in a small role.Anaconda III is not a good film at all, it's silly & unoriginal & makes little sense but it is fun & a lot gorier than I thought. It moves along at a decent pace & while the CGI effects aren't great I did have fun watching it & sometimes that's good enough. Followed by Anaconda 4: Trail of Blood (2009).

This gets my vote as the worst of the Anaconda movies. As a sequel and on its own terms, Anaconda III is wretched. The scenery/sets are quite nice and Crystal Allen is decent, but that's it. The photography is flat and rushed and the film looks as though it has been edited on a bacon slicer. The continuity is inconsistent as well complete with poor gore effects, the writing is vacuous and eye-rollingly cheesy in alternative to funny and the story is hopelessly predictable. The direction is sloppy, the music is generic and forgettable, the film is unevenly paced and unsatisfyingly resolved and the characters I didn't feel anything for. The acting is just dire, David Hasselhoff and Crystal Allen are the only ones who try and while the enthusiasm is admirable Hasselhoff is embarrassing in his acting and delivery, Allen however is far more believable and manages to be the film's sole redeeming quality. The other actors look bored and uninterested, and any scenes that tries to be suspenseful, atmospheric or frightening fails, instead it is laughable. Overall, dreadful sequel and film. 1/10 Bethany Cox
