Hey, I enjoyed it. a fun film, not taking itself seriously. I mean could you imagine the lawsuits in reality, not to mention the govt. coming down on the initial lab's a$$ about proper precautions, unauthorized personel, etc.

My only big beef was No.1 corpse's mouth being agape while on the table, and then closed for the close-up for the coroner to open his mouth.

Big creep out moment- the mayor getting it in the eye. Phobia wise I had to look away. I loved the assistant going after the bee with the double barrel! Fun, that!

Shanks was enjoyable. I don't know if this was a Sci-Fi production or not and he was required to be in this, but honestly he seemed fine in it. I mean , it isn't King Lear. Plus, I think the actor learned during his 'ascension' from Stargate:SG1 that work is work (I can't believe how many actors seem to forget that when they get into a successful series).

Lots of fun satisfying moments. its always fun when the bad guys, well not so much bad as as-holes, 'getting it' right after minimizing the danger. Wouldn't that be great in real life? Some jerk cuts ahead of you in line and , say, trips and breaks her leg on her way out. god, wouldn't that be great?

Another ick moment- Thomerson and the wasps in the air hose. Kent (Shanks) explaining things for us and then Alt (enton... entym... bug scientist) finishing it because she knows it already. And the 2 of them going after the swarm with the hero armed with 2 cans of Fix-a-flat, and little lady scientist with the big extinguisher. All in all a 4 star- I like it rating.

A firm is testing a new bug killer and accidentally creates two extra-mean and extra-toxic wasps. One is killed right away but the other manages to escape and kill. The new bug killer is not doing too well. Then a sample of the stuff gets used in the field and a whole new batch of the beasties is created. These creatures are meaner than usual and their attack pheromones help draw other, less lethal, yellow jackets to join the swarm.

Meanwhile the town is planning a big national cooking competition to determine the greatest hamburger. Apparently yellow jackets are drawn to raw meat. A lot is riding on the festival and a number of characters will do anything to make sure it goes on without a hitch. So finally we have a scientist, a sexy entomologist, an exterminator and a cop as the only defense we have against the killer swarm. The action culminates at the festival and we have the movie's finale.

This one is bad. It bears some resemblance to The Deadly Swarm but just does a lot of weird stuff. The special effects are not in line with the plot. The bug killer should kill 75% yet the field test results in more live yellow jackets than the nest should be able to hold. This is the first-annual cook-off but the press interviews the previous year's winner. Smoke causes a hive to wake up while in reality smoke is used to sedate them. Finally, it is almost laughable to see these yellow jackets actively fly into flaming barbeque grills (the flames have no effect on them although it is later used as a weapon). Countless other silly bits abound. Check out the minuscule barbell the Mayor needs a spotter's help with. All in all a fun movie to heckle but one that makes little sense.

Since Swarmed and Locusts are essentially the same movie, I wrote the same review and just changed the pertinent words. Enjoy...

Entomologist CRISTINA BROWN (Carol Alt) works with a task force - including a gritty EXTERMINATOR named Q (Richard Chevolleau) - to eradicate GENETICALLY ALTERED WASPS threatening a SMALL TOWN. These WASPS are special because they ARE STRENGTHENED BY pesticides and are attracted to HAMBURGER MEAT and STEAK.

Along the way a gorgeous brunette REPORTER gets insecticized, a DUNKING BOOTH becomes a ridiculous location to hide, an idiot SECRETARY goes after WASPS with a SHOTGUN, a WASP gets into a MAN'S mouth, peoples' EYEBALLS get eaten, and most of the swarm is killed by an impromptu FLAMETHROWER.

Sadly, TIM THOMERSON and MICHAEL SHANKS pull one of the plugs from a career that is already on life support, but remain the more competent actors in the film.

It's a Syfy movie, so the production is predictably decent and the special effects are borderline atrocious; mostly it's just a bunch of YELLOW CGI dots on the screen. CAROL ALT looks sexy but not as good as when she was a SWIMSUIT MODEL. Ultimately, however, she's unbelievable as someone who would go into work as a bug expert. It's a good way to pass the time, but awards it will not win.

I too was expecting another really bad SciFi/Syfy Channel movie that they seem to have an unlimited idea pool for, but honestly (and this is just my opinion) i didn't think it was that cheesey or campy, really (not that i mind that stuff at all), it was on the contrary, a pretty overused idea. Your typical little town event gone awry with the town mayor who won't let his income-earning event be stopped for any reason, NOT EVEN MUTANT WASPS! But, yeh, i'm sure a few other movies come to mind with this basic premise. But now.... the acting was decent, if not pretty darn good for others, and even though the plot is so overused I WAS ENTERTAINED. I got into it, it's a FUN B-movie (All im saying is clumsy janitors shouldn't be around mutant yellow jackets...) Suspend your belief and you will have fun! It's molecular modified venomous wasps!! Yes!
