Hey - It's a giant bug movie.

"As the title of this review states - this is a giant bug movie. And, while I agree with the previous reviewer that it could have been better, the same can be said about most giant bug movies.
This movie delivers what this genre should - a gorgeous heroine, a dashing hero, a valiant and sympathetic secondary cast, a defintely evil villan, and some quite good (considering the probable budget constraints) giant bugs.
Angie Everhart does surprisingly well as the "babe entomologist", though everyone comes in a distant second to Mira Sorvino in "Mimic". :-) Antonio Sabato Jr. has the look for the dashing hero, and the rest of the cast was, well..... well cast. The overall cast contains, if not Oscar contenders, a plethora of solid actors with lengthy resumes, and they do a professional job.
If you have a soft spot for giant bug movies, like I do, then you'll probably enjoy this movie. It's overall pretty well done, so pop some popcorn, put the little ones to bed - it's a bit gory in spots - and enjoy. If you're looking for the next "Them" or "Mimic", you might be dissapointed, but I think not terribly so."

"The bugs in this movie are very impressive. They look pretty real and they get plenty of screen time. The acting is good and there is plenty of action and gore to satisfy someone looking for a creature movie like this."
Not bad ... Not Great

"Bugs originally aired several years back on Sci-fi Channel (back when they offered some watchable films ... too bad they lost the formula). Is it great? No. But it is meaningless fun. Bugs has pretty good special effects which helps offset a poorly re-written script (there had to have been a better, more intelligent script than what was offered given the
overall effort of the film). Another Sci-fi movie that is OK to watch,
but just Bugs you they didn't go to the extra effort to make better ...
it had potential to be better."
