Christoph Maria Herbst,
A slacker awakes to find himself weak and wrapped in a webbing; after realizing that the world has been taken over by giant alien insects, he wakes a ragtag group of strangers and together they fight for survival.
Sam Weston, the owner of Weston Technologies is furious over the security breach in his Research Lab. The prototype of his latest weapon system "Mantera" or MAN - Transformable Exo-Robotic Armour was sabotaged and destroyed. Invaluable research data was stolen and deleted from the company's mainframe. His main scientist who is leading the research team, Dr. Natasya was missing. The buyer for the new technology is pressuring Sam to deliver the prototype or the deal is off. To make matter worse, the wreckage and debris from the destroyed "Mantera" was accidentally shipped to the other side of the world.... to a young man by the name of Azman, in Malaysia. Who is Azman, and what makes him the chosen one? Everything will be revealed in 'MANTERA'. Written by

Horrible dubbing, lackluster performances, clichéd and extremely lazy writing, horrible effects, terrible cinematography, and to add insult to... well, *more* insult to injury, there's actually a sequel bait ending.
But I must say, this film's biggest sin is not the terrible writing. It isn't the terrible dubbing. It isn't even the sequel bait ending (which still pisses me off). No, this film's biggest sin is that it doesn't even get the action right. I can forgive the poor effects (I watch Kamen Rider and those effects aren't great either), but the action in this SUCKS. And that just makes the poor effects and everything else all the more painful. This films ONLY redeeming qualities were
A. The concept is inherently cool (no thanks to the film).
And B. There were *maybe* a cool shot or two.
Other than that? Nothing. There's nothing here. Waste of 87 minutes.
