Breathtaking!
20 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've got a weak heart, then beware; "Legion of Fire: Killer Ants!" Is not for you! The edge-of-your-seat action combined with the suspense and constant threats our hero's face is enough to keep the adrenaline flowing in this action packed film starring Eric Lutes As Dr. Jim Conrad, an Entemologist with a whimsical but determined attitude to stop a legion of killer fire ants from taking over a peaceful small Alaskan town in New Mexico, and the beautiful Julia Campbell, who looks kind of like that lady from Seinfeld which is probably why no picture of her was available.

Directed by Jim Charleston; perhaps best known for his Oscar worthy direction in the hit series "V.I.P." This movie continues his legacy of intellectual yet thrilling plot twists at a level previously unreached by any man before him.

So what are you waiting for? This movie, while catering itself as entertainment, bases itself on fact - and reminds us with a sombering opening;"It could happen. . .tomorrow!" which is why you need to see this movie today!
