This is one of the most unintentionally funny snake scenes in movies. While they're being hunted by a bunch of guys in a forest, Jean-Claude Van Damme stops and tells his female companion to close her eyes. She thinks he's going to kiss her, but instead he grabs the neck of a rattlesnake that is just about to bite her on the face. He smacks it on top of the head then punches it in the face to knock it out. Then he bites off the rattle to silence it because next he puts it up in a tree and makes a trap with some vines so it will bite whoever trips the wire. One of the pursuers trips the wire and the snake comes swinging down fangs first right into his face. He rolls around on the ground screaming with the snake still attached. His companions curse, pull the snake off his face, and blow its head off. But don't call the AHA just yet, it was only a horrible fake snake, the kind that's accompanied with the kind of exaggerated explosive hissing and rattling sound effects that we have become accustomed to hearing in movies.
