Killer mutant bats......an interesting thought
23 December 2000 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

The deformed night animals in Bats are interesting to look at.They're no cheat on what was anticipated.So why the film never seems to exploit any of the opportunities to close in on them any further than they do only further adds to it's hinderances.The whole concept of the film is quite intriguing ,the cover alone proves enough to lure in ,with an original tagline like 'Where Do You Hide?',but as the film progresses,the characters become less interesting,and it goes quite over the top with the milatary and the air force getting involved.Ultimately,this is the sort of thing they should leave Stephen King to do.**
