Python starts in the sky over the Californian town of Ruby where during a violent thunderstorm a cargo plane crashes into the nearby woods... Roberta (Kathleen Lambert) & Lisa (LoriDawn Messuri) are having lesbian sex in their tent in the very same woods when they are attacked by something large & very unfriendly. Lisa's mutilated & burnt remains are found the next day, Sheriff Griffin Wade (Gary Grubbs) & his Deputies Greg Larson (William Zabka) & Lewis Ross (Sean Whalen) are on the case. Top on the list of suspects is John Cooper (Frayne Rosanoff) who works for Perfecto Plating, a company that uses strong chemicals acids. Meanwhile agent Parker (Casper Van Dien) quizzes the sinister Dr. Anton Rudolph (Robert Englund) about what was on the plane, Rudolph says that a huge 60 foot long Python was aboard & is worth millions but at the same time absolutely lethal. More residents of Ruby become victims of the giant Python it's up to John & his girlfriend Kristin (Dana Barron) to clear his name & stop the Python...

Directed by Richard Clabaugh Python is one seriously terrible film. The script by Chris Neal, Garrison Hershberger & Paul Bogh is poor & I can't believe it took three people to write this. To it's credit it starts off OK with the Python kept in the background munching it's way through various cast members but once we pass the 30 odd minute mark it sinks faster than a lead balloon. The character's are awful & highly annoying once the film settles down & focuses on them especially Lewis the comedy relief Deputy, the special effects are terrible & the Python barely features & seems almost a secondary consideration at times, the plotting & story are stupid & dumb to the extreme like when the Python stops a garage door from opening with it's tail I mean do Python's have a good working knowledge of garage door mechanism's? Also at the end when John & Krstin find an underground bunker to shelter in but don't close the door behind themselves? There are just too many things wrong with Python to go into detail about, not the worst creature feature out there but no too far from it. On a positive note it moves along at a fair pace & the scene with Jenny McCarthy is actually very funny, hopefully this was intentional.

Director Clabaugh on the DVD commentary track doesn't have particularly good things to say about Python due to the lack of time & money like the fact that the giant Python obviously couldn't fit in that small garage but they simply couldn't find or afford to build a bigger one! As a whole it's a pretty bad film from start to finish although the first half an hour isn't too bad compared to the rest of it. The only gore is when someone is decapitated & there are some partially digested skeletal remains. There are a couple of instances of nudity but nothing to get too excited about.

The budget must have been low as the effects are poor, the Python is used sparingly & the whole thing looks & feels cheap. You can tell Python was made-for-TV & not very well made at that. The acting isn't up to much while Van Dien is terrible & looks ridiculous with that moustache!

Python has no real entertainment value & isn't worth wasting your time with.
