Do we really need another killer bee movie?

This movie reminded me of Piranha, only with killer bees instead of killer fish. Creatures bred to kill escape from a secret laboratory and go on a murder spree, and so a loner with a past reluctantly teams with a pretty scientist to save the day. Sound familiar? A few funny references to previous killer insect films, including numerous 1970's movies like the Swarm and the Savage Bees, but the special effects aren't all that special, and there's nothing scary or original. People talk, bees attack, people argue, bees attack, people have sex, bees attack, reluctant hero saves pretty scientist, scientists save the world... or do they? I left with a case of deja vu. There have been good killer insect movies, this isn't one of them. "Bees" lacks the budget of the Swarm, and certainly lacks the imagination of Piranha.
