Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 10/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, you can tell the mosquito man costume is a man in a suit most of the time, but this movie harkens back to the days of the paranoid fifties when everyone was terrified at what nuclear war could do. This time, the ever popular theme of messing with mother nature is given a new twist in MOSQUITO MAN. The victim this time is a nasty serial killer who has been brought to a laboratory to test out a new breed of skeeters that might help lower the casualties in a new virus propagated by mosquitos that is 100 times worse than the Nile virus. He makes an escape attempt, however, and in the process is infected with the DNA of these mosquitoes and turns into a nasty mosquito man. Cheesy, indeed, but its obvious homage to those bug movies of the fifties is appreciated by one of those fans of that era. Corin Nemec and the rest of the cast of relative unknowns do a fairly decent job and some of the scenes have a tense ambience that makes this above average."
"Hey! Mansquito!!"

"'Mosquito Man' is one of those forgettable movies you see late nights on the Sci-Fi channel that compells you to watch even though it's probably a wiser thing to avoid in order to sustain some of your brain cells. The movie originally appeared on Sci-Fi under the title 'Mansquito', which in my opinion suits the bizarre stupidity of the movie better.

A horrific accident turns an ordinary escaped convict into a in a monster suit that kills people in the very same way a...well, no, not anything like a mosquito would, but he kinda resembles a mosquito...well, not really. Okay, something that may resemble a mosquito, maybe. Anyway, a cop must stop Mansquito before he tries to mate with a hot brunette that in reality would never be a science lab technician.

It's a bad movie, no question. But in bad movie terms, it entertains as mindless, and I stress MINDLESS entertainment that's not for everyone."
Worthy of a showing or two

"Mosquito man was a average movie but with a great mosquito costume.
99% of the mosquito man scenes are great, and only 1 scene where you
the mosquito costume revealed too much.
Now if they would have invested in a better script this movie could
have been a 4 star movie.
The non-action scenes because of boring ' deja vu stuff' almost kills this movie...i dont know who to blame ...the actors or the
direction. Also the music was not too bad,, but better music might
have brought this film to a 3.5.
There is enough gore for the horror fan to enjoy."
Grade-z, but strangely compelling

"when this was shown on SciFi it was titled "Mansquito". I don't know why they changed the title.

undoubtedly you've seen the previews on sci-fi which show the sexy scientist tearing off her blouse-- that and the [original]title tell you all you need to know about how cheesy and ridiculous this picture is-- but I hate to admit I found it strangely watchable. Corin Nemec plays a positively Beowulfian cop who tussles repeatedly with the mansquito but somehow survives each time, while(numerous) lesser men and women die within a few tenths of a second of their 'squito encounters. The story hurtles forward at a breathless pace,which is undoubtedly a good thing considering how silly it is. The heroine is also infected by radioactive skeeter juice(hence her need to disrobe(?), and she figures out that Only She can lure Mansquito to his doom...and you can probably guess the rest.

Look: obviously no one watches a teevee movie called "Mansquito!"(it needed an exclamation point, don't you think?) expecting King Lear, unless they have neurological problems or something. Mansquito! is the cinematic equivalent of cheese nachos: you hate to admit you occasionally crave because you know they're nutritional gargbage-- good in a bad way.

And gee, I didn't know mosquitos could growl-- did you?"
