Critic Reviews

Pit a reptile the size of a school bus against an American TV-news crew in war-scarred Burundi, and you get "Hotel Rwanaconda," a horror movie interested in cheesy scares and drawing attention to the plight of poor Africans. (So no, Primeval is not the '"serial killer'" film promised by the ads.)

Didn't Like
By the end of the film, I was hoping everyone on two legs would die, preferably suffering as much on screen as I was in the audience.
