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.
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)!
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.
Dragon Wasps is about what most kinds of these movies are about...and to be honest its two words I look for in the description of these movies. "Genetic Experiment" typically automatically puts the movie in my cart and this one seriously didn't disappoint. Nobody really of much fame is in this but some might recognize the bad guy from "Poseidon Rex" (another most have in my opinion for your crappy monster movie collections.)
Its got a pretty good pace and the animation is actually pretty great as far as these movies go. Its got enough humor to keep it light but not over the top and even mentions "Sand Sharks". Its definitely not an academy award winner but its fun and worth the watch
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.Read more ›
