Bats Reviews

February 24, 2009
This bad-scientist movie about bats that attack humans and the humans who track them -- Texas sheriff Lou Diamond Phillips and zoologist Dina Meyer -- is played straight, though it wasn't intended to be taken that way.

A movie that's too unintentionally funny to be scary.
June 17, 2008
A vigorously paced and surprisingly satisfying piece of work.

The bat attacks are a series of violent camera pans rendering everything a blur; the continuity and computer-generated imagery is dire; and the dialogue stinks, as do the performances.

It's no knockout, but it's fun and gets the job done in a nonmalicious way, which more of today's punishing filmmakers should emulate.

Bats has nothing to do with baseball or Bela Lugosi. Too bad, because either would be a welcome distraction from this cheesy B-flick about genetically altered man-eating bats.

Without any vampires, there's a lack of material for fans to sink their teeth into.

Masquerading as a Halloween season horror film, this noisy version of a washed-out formula is cause for fright in only one respect: the possibility that it could spawn sequels.

Typically, the movie never gets around to mentioning why the government bred these genius bats. To discourage nightlife? To enforce curfews?
