Storyline

After a series of Amazonian Indian attacks on US owned petroleum installation in Brazil, both governments start a secret 'special program'. In fact colonel Ezekial's men use GM killer bees to eradicate the tribes. During an Indian attack, reporter Ann Bauer is stung, yet survives after a mysterious rescue. Dr. Stephen North realizes the venom has priceless healing powers and smuggles the bee aboard a flight to New York. Bauer, her nearly-divorced husband, Martin, who is aboard and her friend, US State Department project representative, Scotty, face potential mass-killing after turbulence releases the bees aboard.

An Orville Reddenbacher special
3 July 2004 | by hoodcsaSee all my reviews

No one takes this thing to seriously and that helps a lot. The story is paper thin, but it proceeds fast enough. The airplane stuff is hilarious and Craig Sheffer seems to be well in to the spirit of things. He's no Brando, but he plays this stuff in an acceptable manner. The charms of Ms. Anwar have always eluded me, but she's as good as most this time out. Rutger Hauer's on board too and that pains me. This guy is to good to be making this much crap. Flying Virus is a stupid title but genre fans will stick with this movie.

A popcorn film. Make that a butter-free popcorn film.
