Either except it as a cheesy romp and love it or take it seriously and hate it
28 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie is in constant rotation on SciFi and its another one of those movies that I stop at each time its on. The plot has badly done giant mosquitoes attacking people in the country side. They have been mutated after feeding on the blood of dead aliens...I know you're shocked, you were expecting a high class movie (even with the title Mosquito) and instead you got a very silly movie played (reasonably) straight by everyone involved. Clearly the cast and crew knew this was a silly idea, but they milk it for all its worth turning the attack scenes into something you both wince at (for the idea of it) and groan at (the silliness of the execution). This is one of the rare modern attempts at a drive in movie that walks the fine line between being serious and being mocking to create something thats enjoyable despite the dumbness of it all. If you can take it on its own level its worth two bags of popcorn and a couple of sodas. If you can't take it for what it it is then you're in for a long painful viewing experience.

9 out of 10 on the brain dead fun-o-meter.
