Do NOT insult your intelligence
10 January 2013 | by (Roswell, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

This film is such a travesty that I hesitate to honor it by calling it a film. An eighth grader from the slow learners class could have written the script and the acting is so bad that it could almost be mistaken for a spoof of a Science Fiction movie. It is so disjointed in the plot line that Ed Wood would have been ashamed of it. This is not Science Fiction, it is Science Stupidity. There are so many components that are impossible...literally impossible....like a huge military transport plane becoming air borne within 100 feet of it take off position. The science of the DNA specimens is totally bizarre, such as moths being necessary for pollination, but mid movie it becomes bees instead of moths. I hold EVERY SINGLE "actor and actress" in the movie in contempt. They are all wooden and over act every line they deliver! The experience of sitting through their hammy performances was almost enough for me to quit the movie before the end. Science Fiction is my favorite genre, but any more movies like this one and I will give up on Sci Fi, speaking of which this was so clichéd and poorly done that I thought it was a SyFy original!!!
