The only real nightmare is how awful the film is!
17 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I kind of knew that The Hive was going to be heavily flawed. But as bad as it actually turned out to be? Actually no. This for me was truly awful, not among SyFy's very worst but if there was a list of SyFy waste-of-times The Hive would almost certainly be on it. While not the biggest problem, the title is misleading, when you think of hives you think of bees instead of ants. But again that is not the worst part of The Hive, because there are so many things wrong it is actually difficult to pinpoint which was the worst. Even for SyFy, The Hive looks very poor. The camera work is some of the worst I have seen in a long time and the effects are very fake-looking. The scenery can be a strong point in these films, but here it is unauthentic and drab. The music is forgettable and over-bearing, while the writing is very hackneyed and trite with the rhetoric manging to be pointless and repetitive and the characters are stereotypical and annoying, none are likable and not much is done to develop them. The ants look cheap and are not scary at all. The story is dull and predictable especially at the end, with underdeveloped and eventually pointless subplots with no suspense or sense of horror. Only the bugs in someone's ears evoked any nightmarish feel. The acting is messy too, Elizabeth Healy especially is irritating despite her beautiful appearance. Overall, an awful film in almost every way. 1/10 Bethany Cox
