GENRE: Mystery, Thriller


Rattlesnake begins with a heartwarming family film about a single parent and her adorable daughter trying to adjust a new life together. When Clara was bit by a rattlesnake, her mother encountered a mysterious lady who helped her regained her daughter’s life. The most exciting and thrilling part was when Katrina found out how to repay this act from a stranger. What I like about Rattlesnake is how they turned a simple premise and accident into a whirlwind of emotions and conscience that has really placed Katrina in her toughest challenge yet. It was actually a fun and short ride. Katrina was faced with consequences and life-changing decisions that will truly test her love & character. I loved how the deal played along with all the emotions and connections surrounding the film. Indeed, we can do everything for the persons we loved. The race against time is really thrilling until a climax that will leave you at the edge of your seats. The characters were impressive. Carmen was such an effective mother desperately asking for help for her daughter. I can almost feel her struggle and frustration. She was really effective on her portrayal. Rattlesnake is a movie with modest thrills, action sequences and disturbing scenes that is enjoyable with a round of popcorn.


I felt that the movie lack enough intensity to magnify the ordeal of the Katrina in quest of solving the mystery. I wish it could have been a little longer especially on the part where Katrina is trying to figure out the situation. Nevertheless, they had in modest amount.
