With a less than auspicious beginning, it's no wonder this epic isn't more highly regarded. They leisurely/briefly introduced a clump of characters then abruptly discarded them; amiably peeking back in at their lives at various points from time to time. There was no hurry, no intrigue, no suspense to start things out. They just showed people going about their business until eventually they brought them together and then the action finally began (too late to satisfy me). This movie is so low-key, so lackadaisical; one wonders why they even bothered to thwart the plans of the superior bug race. Then again, what else did they have to do; most of the characters were out of jobs at that point.
At least this movie was consistent throughout. The characters were all more or less stupid, the only reason they got away with so many things was because they could count on everyone else being equally stupid. A lot of the decisions made didn't make sense, starting with the astronaut the bugs saved because they were afraid of him/his blood. They could have easily solved that by jettisoning him in space in the first place. I spent a great deal of time questioning the motives of every action/choice depicted; it's as if they filmed the rough draft without vetting its likelihood or logic behind what they were making these people do. It also didn't help that the hero (Gil Bellows) was basically incompetent (not to mention unlikable). As for the astronaut who started the whole thing, Campbell Scott might as well have not been in this movie, he was rarely used and of that, hardly anything one would brag about. Then there's the bug queen. Daryl Hannah hasn't exactly had a sterling career thus far so I doubt that appearing in this one did irrevocable harm to her legacy. I suppose that if everyone involved tried just a little harder this might have been okay. As it is......eh.
I'm still trying to figure out how those gigantic bugs fit inside a person without the pointy bits sticking out!
