Killer bees from South America have been breeding with the gentler bees of more northern climes, slowly extending their territory northward decade after decade. Entomologist Brad Crane has discovered that something is making them come together in huge, killer swarms. He wants to keep the General Slater from using military tactics from further upsetting the balance of nature as they join to try to stop the swarms from approaching Houston.Written by
When the larger group of soldiers enter the compound near the beginning of the movie the door to the compound building opens to let them inside in one shot and opens again in the very next shot. See more »
[after Crane leaves the missile silo's mortuary]
I noticed Dr. Crane seemed uneasy in here.
I can't imagine why anyone would be uneasy around all these *dead men*. Can you, Major?

Yeah fair enough , this is reckoned to be the worst disaster movie ever . Agreed there`s some really terrible acting involved with Michael Caine either OTT or totally wooden from scene to scene with the kid playing Paul giving a " I`m really terrified because I`m waving my head from side to side and saying no, no , no an awful lot " acting style . That said I do have a soft spot for THE SWARM because it is rather enjoyable due to the lapses in logic and science , and who can fail to be emoured by the laughable dialogue like " We`ve been losing the war against the insects for 15 years but I`d never thought it`d be the bees - They`ve always been our friends " or " Has this nuclear power plant made any provisions against killer bees " ? Don`t take it so seriously and you might just enjoy it
