Movie Reviews

Superb Snake Documentary . . . and Art
L. Zajicek | San Diego, CA | 12/16/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One is lucky to meet, perhaps, five people at the most in one's lifetime who are TRULY passionate about their work, whose life IS their work. Such is the case of Mr. Austin Stevens and his passion for snakes. And it is this passion that is self-evident in his Snakemaster series, THE captivating spirit for the viewer.

This DVD contains three episodes of the entire Snakemaster season produced by Animal Planet, each documenting a buildup of Mr. Stevens' captures of snakes or reptiles in their native habitat, climaxing at the end with the capture of the biggest and "baddest" snake/reptile. For Borneo, it is a 20ft.+ Reticulated Python, a snake capable of eating an adult human being without any problem, in Australia's desert it is the giant Perentie lizard, and in the Florida Panhandle it is an 8ft. long Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. Mr. Stevens has the innate talent to "take" us, the viewer, with him on his adventurous journey as if we were right there with him. Right in our living room, he takes us to places that 98% of us will never have the opportunity to visit, a marvelous gift to us on his part. Breathtakingly filmed, beautifully scored (a la John Barry), and wonderfully narrated -- yes, Mr. Stevens is a superb storyteller -- this DVD is not only an excellent snake documentary, but a superb work of cinematographic art! I only hope that Animal Planet will release the entire Snakemaster series on DVD very, very soon.
Dramatic, But It's Pretty Damn Cool!!
Bob Smith | USA | 04/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I could sit back and drink beer all day to this DVD! Yeah Boy!! I highly recommend this DVD along with a few brew haaas to compliment it. The cold ones will help tone down all the needless dramatic screenplay he does. I was a little disappointed he couldn't ID the shed he found, which was from an Eastern DB (you can tell if you put it in slow motion), in the Eastern Diamondback episode. Who ever said you can't learn and drink at the same time?!"
Great Reptile DVD
L. Ayala | 01/15/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you or your children like reptiles, this is a great show. Although some scenes are somewhat dramatic, it's very entertaining and best of all, the camerawork, scenery and narration are all top notch.
