Much better than I was expecting
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I hear SyFy originals popping up, I immediately think cheap and bad. Bugs is surprisingly one of their more watchable efforts. Of course there are flaws, while SyFy have definitely done worse the bugs do look rather crude in design, the script could have done with more flow and less cheese, the characters are stereotypical and some elements of the story are derivative. However, the scenery is cool and atmospheric, and the editing is much more focused than it has been, usually I find it hackneyed. The gore is not too cheap and quite fun in their usage and the attacks do at least have suspense and a sense of terror. Bugs features one of the better directorial jobs for a SyFy movie, it is flashy and crisply paced in alternative to the sluggish and almost non-existent direction I've encountered before, and the story doesn't make the mistake of being dull and is more interesting and less predictable than it sounds. The acting is decent, nobody stands out as such but nobody is mind-numbingly bad either. Overall, has its debits but compared to the usual SyFy original movie fodder it is not half bad. 6/10 Bethany Cox
