Trivia

Two of the creatures that Willy Meyers (Benjamin Easterday) states the soldiers are trained for are Mansquito and Sand Sharks. Corin Nemec, the other soldier in the scene, starred in the movies featuring these creatures - although he played other characters. Sand Sharks (2011) was also produced by Little Dragon Productions, who produced Dragon Wasps. Benjamin Easterday and Corin Nemec team up again in Dracano (2013) See more »

Can Be Described in One Word: AWFUL
14 December 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The entomologist Gina Humphries (Dominika Juillet) travels to Central America with her best friend and also entomologist Rhonda Guiterrez (Nikolette Noel) with a hidden agenda: she expects to find her father, the scientist Dr. Humphries (David Stasko) that vanished in the jungle. When an acquaintance finds his backpack with a footage inside, Gina discloses her intention to Rhonda and they travel to search for her father.

They drive a Jeep and Gina convinces the military John Hammond (Corin Nemec) to help them in their search with his team. Along their journey, they fight against the drug dealer and voodoo sorcerer Jaguar (Gildon Roland). But soon they discover that in the spot there are huge mutant dragon wasps that spit fire but Gina expects to find her father alive.

The lame and corny "Dragon Wasps" is among the worst movies I have seen. The moronic storyline is awful; the acting and dialogs do not exist; and the CGI is ridiculous. It is laughable to see the two wooden scientists wearing shorts in a tropical jungle (and they are not hot). The lines and the attitude of Corin Nemec are idiotic. Hammond seeks out the drug dealer that he and his team have battled a couple of hours ago to ask him to help his pal. He drinks the spirits with drugs offered by his enemy. He lets the soldier shoot the drug dealers with his men tied to a wall to be fusilladed by the criminals. He sacrifices his life to try to save one man that might be dead in the hive. There are so many stupidities in this movie that I would spend too much time and space to list all of them. My vote is one (awful).

Title (Brazil): "Terror Tropical" ("Tropical Terror")
