Storyline

Highlighting the extraordinary world of insects, Bugs! focuses on the life cycles of a praying mantis and a butterfly from their birth to their inevitable demise in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia. More than 40 tropical insects are featured, captured in minute detail for the first time in 3D Large Format; see a caterpillar hatch from a single tiny egg to metamorphose into a butterfly, and watch as a praying mantis snaps up a fly for its dinner.

Good, but I would've liked a different approach better
12 January 2004 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the film, and the IMAX 3D effects were very impressive. However, instead of just focusing on the lifecycle of two creatures and giving the occasional side note about others, I would've preferred more of an overall survey about insect life. The lifecycle isn't all that fascinating (unless you're seeing it for the first time, which most viewers probably aren't), it's the visuals that we want to see. A more survey-style presentation that allowed us to get a look at a variety of interesting bugs would be more satisfying in this regard.

Two of my favorites, visually, were the dueling rhinoceros beetles, and the praying mantis shedding its carapace whole.
