The Hive has big ideas but rather small thinking.
The actors are good (especially Walsh, who was one of my favorites in last year's Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), the story sails right along at a brisk clip that's just right for its 89-minute running time, and there's even a romantic subplot.
A film that relies on style over substance could probably have done with being a little more... stylish. But overall I actually didn't mind The Hive, in fact I sort of enjoyed it. Maybe I was just over the moon to realise I wasn't about to sit through another found-footage nightmare, and maybe I just wore the rose-tinted glasses of being super in to lead actress Kathryn Prescott, but I actually sort of dug The Hive in its Evil Dead ripoff-y glory.
But I feel it must be asked, why is it, that the one film that actually comes up with a perfectly reasonable explanation for the "love conquers all" cliche, go ahead and waste it on a completely unbelievable love story? I mean for real, they barely know each other but we're supposed to know it's true love? That stuff doesn't even fly for bloody Disney Princesses nowadays.
