Uranium is a heavy element and supposedly is in lead lined boxes. The empty lead boxes containing uranium would have been difficult for two men to load into a wagon. Even partly filled with uranium the boxes would have weighed more than the entire group of people could have lifted. See more »

Decent but unspectacular
17 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

A small Western town finds themselves under attack by a race of mutant alien insects looking for a rare chemical found in the area and try to protect themselves from the creatures before they kill them off to get at the chemical.

A pretty decent Sci-Fi Channel original, nothing too bad here but this one met with a bit more flaws than normal. Rather, the continued storyline about the condemned man seeking repentance every single time he's together with the others during a break from the bug action is a little tiring, the continuous double-crossing gets old the fifth time it happens and the reasoning for the bugs' arrival is nice if slightly rushed and seems like an after-thought. Plus, with the continued placement of the survivor's attempts to get away from being trapped in a building, there's not a lot of attacks and confrontations and resorts more to them sneaking around without being seen than having the bugs do away with them, so the gore is almost gone and is rarely featured, a rather strange inclusion. Still, the main attack sequence is nicely handled, the creatures themselves look good and it's got enough action on the back-end to justify it, but it is a slightly-flawed effort.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Language
