Periodic moments of good special effects are separated by reels of dramatic banality as players flounder in flimsy dialog and under sluggish direction.

Bring on the DDT. A silly giant-bug opus with cheap special effects.

Bert I. Gordon makes ant crap out of an H.G. Wells short story he loosely adapted to the big screen.

Cheap special effects and nonexistent horror in a 'horror' flick make for one boring waste of celluloid.

One of those movies that's a nailbiter for a little kid, but laughable when revisted as an adult.

If you find it when you are flipping through channels at three in the morning, turn it off and try to get some sleep.

The movie swarmed into local theaters yesterday; unfortunately, the insects and the people in this mélange of ersatz science-fiction and dull adventure deserve one another.
