This fun Chinese snake movie is most notable for being a monster snake movie about a film crew that's making a monster snake movie. There is some violence, but mostly it's a comedy. We see a silly snake wrangler, a villainous sound guy (is there any other kind?) a frightened cinematographer, a director who thinks he's making an art movie, and a producer who fears she's going to die in her own movie. One of the crew even tells the director that a movie with a giant snake isn't worth dying for.

There's a scene with actors pretending to run from a giant snake, while a snake wrangler holds a snake puppet in front of them. When the director tells them they're doing a bad job, the actors complain that the snake is too fake, the director tells the snake wrangler to get a real snake and he is ecstatic. But when they see the real snake, then it's too terrifying for everyone. There's not much here we haven't seen before, but I enjoyed that the people did not try to shoot the snake, and instead used their ingenuity to get away from it, without having to destroy it. At the end we see it re-united with one of its eggs.

The snake wrangler shows the director some eggs he made for the movie, but the director tells him he needs more realistic eggs, so the wrangler brings some real eggs he found in the wild. The director tells him to put them back because it's not right to use real snake eggs, but it's too late. The mother python then starts pursuing the film crew to get her eggs back. At one point, she finds a second snake to help her and they both chase the film crew around an abandoned village.

The snakes in this movie aren't as gigantic as they are in most giant snake movies. They're big, but they're almost realistic in size. There are shots of a real python in the beginning, before we see the film crew, but the giant snakes are CGI. Like most CGI monster snakes, these snakes have large front fangs, they make loud growling noises, they're able to climb buildings, they can punch through walls, they strangle people with their tails. and they move as if they are bouncing over the ground or flying. That's all ridiculous, but typical for the genre. (There's some fun footage under the end credits of the movie that shows the real film crew making this movie manipulating large snake puppets.)
