After a series of Amazonian Indian attacks on US owned petroleum installation in Brazil, both governments start a secret 'special program'. In fact colonel Ezekial's men use GM killer bees to eradicate the tribes. During an Indian attack, reporter Ann Bauer is stung, yet survives after a mysterious rescue. Dr. Stephen North realizes the venom has priceless healing powers and smuggles the bee aboard a flight to New York. Bauer, her nearly-divorced husband, Martin, who is aboard and her friend, US State Department project representative, Scotty, face potential mass-killing after turbulence releases the bees aboard.

Rutger Hauer versus Killer Bees... Now why on earth would I not watch this?
23 May 2010 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

There, I did it again... After going through this phase (a few months ago) of wanting to see as many killer-bee movies as possible, its sting must have left something in my system, because last week I got me 2 other killer-bee movies... As we all know, Rutger Hauer is the man, so I just had to see this one. Basically Mr. Hauer's pretty hilarious performance of a corrupt military bad-ass/bad guy is the only thing that kept my going through this movie. He's great and has the best lines of the whole movie. Watch him kill off an entire innocent tribe. Watch him kill even an entire civilized town. Watch him say "Actually, bees are allergic to ME!" and then see him get killed by a crocodile! Extremely fun stuff, but the rest of the movie.... Well, the movie has two story-lines. One about the rain forest being destroyed for commercial profits, the other one is... uhm, well: Bees on a Plane. That's it. Oh yeah, the scene where Graig Sheffer was hanging on a rope outside a flying plane was a hoot! You've got to see it to believe it. Highly unbelievable stuff. Maybe so-bad-it's-good... And Gabrielle Anwar is kinda cute.
