Bugs! is a live-action 40-minute nature documentary filmed in the large IMAX format in 3-D.

Trouble is, both the script and Dame Judi's delivery are a bit old-fashioned.
Astute use of 3-D effects, accomplished insect wrangling and studious avoidance of gross-out elements make this acceptable for target family auds.
Does effectively showcase the life-and-death struggle waged constantly among creatures that, at least in numbers, dominate the planet.
Thanks to specially built equipment, audiences are treated to a bug's-eye view of the stars' evolution from adolescence to adulthood.
That hulking gorilla in King Kong and those rampaging dinosaurs in Jurassic Park have nothing on the amazing monsters in Bugs! in 3-D.
An extraordinary inspection of a universe rarely invaded by motion picture cameras. You've never been here before.
Bugs! doesn't rely on sinister spider shots for thrills: seeing these insects in their full, magnified glory is a spine-tingler in itself.
One of the finest movies that ever came to the IMAX at the Putnam, "Bugs! In 3-D" flies right into your face. And you'll like it.
Entertainingly anthropomorphizes the insect residents of a tropical rainforest.
The 3-D effect is terrific throughout, and the surround-sound design heightens the sense of being immersed in a lush tropical environment.
The 3-D work is extremely effective, giving us a realistic, close-up view of insects unlike anything previously viewed.
For once the 3-D is more than just a gimmick, transporting the audience to a Borneo rainforest so lush and verdant you can almost feel the sunlight on your eyelids.
