3.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Wasps....... April 26, 2013
Format:DVD
When her father disappears on an expedition, Gina Humphries and her assistant, Rhonda, set out to search the rain forests of Belize. Due to numerous happenings in the jungle, they are escorted by heavily-armed soldiers. Guerillas, led by Jaguar, ambush them and have a bloody shootout. Then, out of the blue, a horde of Dragon Wasps(massive flying bugs that shoot flame from their abdomens) swarm the soldiers. The military must defeat Jaguar and his bandits & survive the onslaught as they venture inside the Dragon Wasps hive.

I'll admit, with a title like Dragon Wasps & a plot like the above, you'd think this movie would have alot going for it. You'd think it'd, at least, be a fun and exciting movie in a B-movie sort of way. However, Dragon Wasps isn't quite the fun and exciting B-movie you'd expect. It's not a bad movie, mind you. The acting is good and the plot is okay. It's just as another reviewer pointed out..it feels too generic or, as I would say, flat. The wasps aren't menacing or scary at all and, because of that, I feel that's why you yourself can't take the movie so seriously as it's played. With a little better direction, I think this movie could've been pretty good.

As it stands, though, It's an okay movie. A decent time-waster. As far as a purchase goes? I'd give it some thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Tradition of 1950's B Horror Flicks August 16, 2013
Format:DVD
Here's a short and sweet review. Dragon Wasps is a sort of update or re-make of a not-so-classic grade B sci-fi flick called "The Monster From Green Hell".

Only the MFGH bugs are extremely laughable to see (and yeah, they are giant bees who move more slowly than a snail) but the acting is even more hilarious.

Watch that one, then watch this one. "Dragon Wasps" will show quite a bit of similarity.

Yet both reflect the fears of their time. In the 1950's it was the fear of mutation by atomic radiation. In our time it is the fear of mutation by genetic engineering.

So why 5 stars? Well, Grade B 1950's sci-fi is unforgettable and often goes classic. In 50+ years, maybe this film will be a classic as well.

Also, as silly as the DW movie was... I kind of enjoyed it because it reminded me of MFGH (which impressed me when I was 8 years old)!

Who doesn't love genetically engineered animal hybrids and bad science fiction? I certainly do! If you give me a nutty film committed to its own madness, I love the schlock and the cheese factor that can make bad movies so good. "Dragon Wasps" certainly has a title that might promise a fun time. Largely, though, there isn't enough wackiness present to make this a must-see entertainment. For the most part, the movie has nothing new to contribute to the pantheon of better bad movies. It's as if the filmmakers said, "I've got it, let's make a movie that combines wasps with dragons" and that was the entire creative process. Before I discuss the movie, then, let's talk about the creature conception. The effects are fairly shoddy, as you might expect, but also surprisingly uninteresting as well. This is a fatal flaw for a movie of this type. If the creature can't scare you, it should at least amuse you. Here it did neither. The wasps can dispense fire (a scientific reason of some sort is given) but they don't have a distinctive look. When you see one up close, it looks like a big plastic bee. And when they are in a swarm, the effects just show a blurry mass.

The biggest problem, however, was not the wasps themselves. Rather, it was that the story was so generic and didn't really incorporate the monster menace effectively. The movie introduces us to two extremely poor actresses (I didn't look up their names, I trust that I'll never see them again). One of their fathers was a scientist who has gone missing in the jungle. They decide to drive in and find him (easy enough, huh?) but are waylaid by two soldiers that are containing the perimeter of some sort of danger zone. Well the girls convince the guys of their mission's nobility within about two seconds and everyone is off to a new adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Can You Not Buy a Movie Called Dragon Wasps? December 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this for a family member for Christmas. As a fellow lover of B-movies, I know he's going to get a great kick out of it. Arrived in perfect shape, safely packaged in a bubble mailer envelope.

3.0 out of 5 stars "At least if we die we die happy." July 20, 2014
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Of course there's a hidden lab deep in a jungle, where else would you put one if you were planning to create some HUGE killer wasps. Naturally, some old dude just had to go poking around in this lab; he soon goes missing requiring his dutiful daughter to search for him. Enter Corin Nemec as a reluctant tour guide/body guard/bug killer. He's a soldier with a very small platoon (small body count). And as if the killer wasps weren't trouble enough, there's also a local guerilla guy with a fondness for stretching out words with ssssssssss in them. Unfortunately, they let him talk way too much. He's about as menacing as Elmer Fudd.
The quotient of bug action to human action was way off. In a sci-fi flick titled Dragon Wasps, you would expect more wasps, less people. Sadly, this is not the case. The angry insects are used sparingly and repetitively. The acting is uniformly subpar, the dialog is yappy and inconsequential, the plot is pretty basic. There are absolutely no surprises. Nothing unique is offered but for the title and the promise of some interesting monsters that never really materialize quite in the way they should have. A bit of a disappointment, it was just barely okay.
