Hey! Bugs Have Rights, Too, You know!
29 March 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I watched most of "Bugs!" with the sound turned off because I didn't like Judi Dench's narration at all - Nor did I much care for the soundtrack music which quickly began to grate on my nerves. So, because of these 2 annoyances, silence was the only option for me.

This documentary also lost itself some significant points when it became quite obvious to this viewer that a number of the insects featured in the show were, in fact, actually being set up to fight with and inevitably eat up each other.

Yes. I do realize that "they-are-just-bugs", but, because of the frame of mind I was in, having to watch them deliberately do each other in for the sake of cinematic-drama (because the production crew made it happen) rendered this entire documentary as being a pretty shoddy bit of entertainment.

Filmed in the rain forest region of Borneo - This nature documentary earned its 4 stars from me for its very lush photography that showed the viewer super-magnified images of spiders, centipedes, beetles, bees and praying mantis, etc., etc., foraging around in their natural environment.
