Comments: The first attack is stunning but it is done with an amateur look to it. The special effects on the bees are simple.
Los Angeles does have a catastrophe.
The acting leaves much to be desired. Five people join up with the Sheriff leading them. She is a tough woman. They face the threat of the killer bees. What exactly has caused them to start killing people and why in Los Angeles?
The lighting has a yellow ting to it at times. Regular lighting would work better. Lots of times the lighting is too dark. The camera angle sometimes cuts people’s heads off when it would be better not to.
The bees stings seems to turn people into zombies. As if killer bees are not enough.
Seeing the beehives moving does bring across a touch of terror.
There are only two bigger bees throughout most of the movie than all of a sudden near the end they are all bigger. No reason why?
The final battle of the group of humans facing the bees is a letdown. The movie does have one good scene near the end that is done in a frightening manner. The Queen Bee is a hybrid that does jump out at you and is ready to sting.
