Eh around 13 or 14 mark.

It was kind of better than the first one maybe but it has some violence and some language and its less innapropriate than the first.

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid

This sequel never should have been made. I love the original Anaconda but this movie was a huge disappointment.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (7):

This sequel is nothing more than another B-movie with some suspense, a few entertaining lines, and a ridiculous plot. Yet while the characters and plot are both typical and predictable, the movie's suspense holds you to your seat. The snakes' surprise appearances are cool, but are guaranteed to frighten a younger child. An example of such is when one of the team members began celebrating after crawling out of a small tunnel without being devoured by an anaconda, only to be suddenly attacked by another anaconda.

Along with its suspense, the audience definitely seemed to appreciate its girl-power message. The theaters roared with great commotion and applause as one of the female characters stood up to her boss (Jack), telling him that he was out-numbered and that the hunt for the orchid was over. The same character also took the lead later in the film. Overall, the film is a flop. Save your money for a real thriller.
