4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, eye-popping effects, and Ray Wise. July 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was fortunate enough to attend the US premiere of Infestation, a nifty science fiction story with just the right amount of comedy, terrific performances by stars new and old, and snappy dialogue. Although it was made on what amounts to a "shoestring" (less than $5 million), you'd never know it from the great cinematography (by Thomas Ackerman of Beetle Juice and Anchorman fame), silky (no pun intended) special effects (from newcomer/phenom Efram Potelle), and a crisp, fast-moving script (by director Kyle Rankin).

Chris Marquette (as main character, Cooper) is by turns endearing and heroic. At times seeming to channel Shia Labeouf (without the "no, no, no, no, no's"), he comes across as both real and genuinely charming, and his transformation from phone rep (today's factory worker) to an against-all-odds hero holds the center of the movie. Ray Wise gets off some great one liners as his dad, Ethan, and Dale Simonton is memorable as a boss who's up to his ears with telemarketing slackers. (Oddly and disappointingly, Simonton's character simply disappears after a dramatic entrance.)

Of course, Infestation isn't perfect. The underlying story has "echoes" from quite a few other films, and sometimes it's hard to distinguish between an "homage" and a copy. For example, there's more than a bit of Alien (and Aliens) in the mix, both in terms of visual imagery and the presentation and organization of the "things" doing the infesting. Yet, Infestation comes across as a charming spoof that incorporates notions from a variety of science fiction films in a playful and knowing nod to serious stuff that's come before it. In addition, the groups' journey from the city to the scene of their final encounter wasn't as suspenseful as it should have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good October 29, 2009
Format:DVD
A low budget, B-movie blast that ends up being a surprisingly good modern monster movie, Infestation is plenty enjoyable. Chris Marquette (Freddy VS Jason, The Girl Next Door) stars as Cooper, a slacker office drone, who becomes an unlikely hero when mutant alien bugs invade and begin to kill and cocoon everything and everyone in sight. Eventually, Cooper teams up with a handful of survivors (including hottie Brooke Nevin) as they fight off the hordes of giant bugs, with a good amount of tongue in cheek humor filling everything out in between. For a low budget flick, Infestation boasts some pretty good special effects work, and with genre stalwart Ray Wise along for the ride as Cooper's militant father, what's not to like here? All in all, Infestation is definitely something that is worth your time and attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this movie October 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Arguably the best creature feature since Tremors Attack Pack (Tremors/ Tremors 2 - Aftershocks/ Tremors 3 - Back to Perfection/ Tremors 4 - The Legend Begins). Other than a bit of gratuitous nudity it should have been rated PG-13. This is just plain fun . Giant Bugs that unlike most recent SyFy fare don't make you cringe at their execution.Another throw back to the days of monsters that weren't slashers disguised as creatures. Highly recommended for genre fans!Bring on the sequels!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bug's life October 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was realy supprised when I saw this in my local free lending library not that they don't have heaps to borrow its just that it was in the post from Amazon and I could have seen it before outlaying the hard earned. To my supprise this was a great little movie a heck of a lot better than some of the big budget crud thats come out of late. I won't spoil the fun but for under $10 you can pass an hour and a half give or take a few mins. without asking yourself why did you waste that time. I won't give anything away but if you liked 8 Legged Freaks then you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid sci fi fun! May 8, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This blu ray is a all region blu ray so it's ok to play on a blu ray player anywhere in the world. I can't understand why they didn't put this one out here in the states though because this is alot of fun. The story concerns people waking up and they are cacooned by big bugs and they must fight to survive. The film uses both effective cgi ( computer generated images) and old fashioned style electronically worked bugs , remember ET even used this and it's often better than cgi in some cases. The cgi here is loads above what other low budget b movie sci fi flicks often are stuck with. They aren't a level but mostly they are close! the acting is fine and has the excellent ray wise leading off as the frustrated father of a slacker son. The son is the stories hero which is a twist. The film jumps right into the story and due to this we don't get to the predisaster characterizations of some films: I really didn't mind though as this one is alot of fun. On blu ray , (this one is made in the uk) the picture looks great with no dirt , scratches or softness that older catalog movies can have. However some extra features may not come through because they are region b, which is why I want a all region blu ray player! It's just a romp in some ways and it does have a few extra features. I love b movies and this is close to a A movie in some ways , but like all of these types of movies the regular critic (non b movie lover, might pick this apart in some ways) still this one seems higher budget than it is! unlike lets say some scy fy movies you might enjoy but still effects wise are way behind this. So grab this one if you love bugs on loose movies or even fun ones like "them" (1950's) "mars attacks" or "night of the lepus" ,this is worth owning on blu ray. Even though the ending wasn't my cup of tea it didn't spoil the fun I had watching this film which takes place in colorado but was filmed overseas somewhere.

Not much to say here. I liked the movie. It's 10 times better than any giant bug movie that Syfy airs. The ending was kind of annoying though.
