Thoughts on Megaboa
Megaboa is one of the latest big animal attack movie. Which is will see another group of random students needing to fight back to survive. Much like most of the films like this. We will only get the basic characters that are usually doing the random stuff in the film.
This is one of the more forgettable versions of the creature feature, which somehow dragged Eric Roberts into the mix. Which sees him enjoying his time in the movie, without needing to do too much.
The effects are better than some, but usually held back, with more focus on the rainforest than the creatures. Megaboa is one of those movies you can forget in a heartbeat and doesn’t do anything to make you want to return to it.
