In the movie Snakes On a Plane does it have any real truth behind it, by that I mean could snakes take out the power and survive or on a 747-400 could the pilot access the cargo hold directly from the cockpit or could the snakes access the cabin by climbing through the walls and then going through air vents and bite people. Any other things that are faculty inaccurate?

Well for starts, the flight deck is directly above the lower deck pax cabin, not the cargo hold (first class on QF 747s, don't know about most other airlines) - so no, you can't access cargo direct from the flight deck.
The main avionics bay can be accessed from a hatch in the front pax cabin, and from memory you can access forward cargo from a door in the avionics bay... don't recall any other entries to the cargo hold from the cabin.
