Deadly Boring

Having forced some Indians in to showing him the location of a rare type of killer wasp, scientist Dr. Schroeder (J. Patrick McCormack) bribes a drug trafficker to smuggle them back across the border. But an accident leads to a series of deaths as these wasps sting those who come in to contact with them. Fortunately with entomologist Daniel Lang (Shane Brolly - Underworld) in the region as well as Sandra (Kaarina Aufranc), an investigative journalist, they set about trying to save the local population from the deadly swarm.

There is only one thing deadly about the "Deadly Swarm"; it is so tedious that it could put you in to a coma. On one hand we just happen to have a bug expert in the region trying to get to the bottom of what is going on, a lunatic scientist behind it, a town mayor who doesn't want his festival spoilt by any trouble and of course an attractive woman. Yes "Deadly Swarm" is really that genetically generic and so you watch as it plays through the formula in a less than imaginative way.

Now I could try and find something to be positive about "Deadly Swarm" and say that Shane Brolly is a handsome actor but that shouldn't be the sole positive in a movie. But sadly there isn't anything else and the effects when it comes to these killer wasps leave little to be inspired by.

What this all boils down to is that "Deadly Swarm" is a mediocre walk through of the killer insect feature with nothing to make it stand out from the crowd.
