Storyline

A biology teacher and his wife take their two children to an island summer house to enable him to write an important thesis while getting over the death of their son. While they are there, large flocks of birds appear and begin to attack individual humans for no apparent reason. The town mayor (who is also the local doctor) refuses to believe that birds are responsible for the spate of injuries that are occurring but, before long, he has no option but to believe as the birds begin attacking larger groups of people.

Why Do People Hate This Movie So Much?
29 August 2008 | by cameron-kills-itSee all my reviews

Okay, so it's not exactly my favorite movie ever, but it wasn't terrible! It's about a family who move to a little town called Land's End for the summer, and to escape from the memories of their son who died in an accident. Soon, birds start terrorizing the townspeople and the family realizes that they have to take action. The acting is actually pretty good, and the film is actually pretty suspenseful! (Not nearly as much as the first one, though!) Anyways, the movie is kept me entertained for the whole hour and 27 minutes that it was on for. However, the main reason that I only gave the film five stars is that the ending is terrible! It is so abrupt and it seemed as though Alan Smithee (Rick Rosenthal) just got tired of making the film and decided that it was just good as it was. More people would enjoy this film if it weren't for that horrible ending!

Rated: R for Violence and Gore.

Grade: C
