Dragon Wasps (2012) Review

From its title and the cover of the DVD you can immediately tell what kind of a film this is.
It’s a modern B movie from the same stock as Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus, Mega Piranha and Sand Sharks.

These films sound bad and well, they are bad. So why bother watching them?

I can only think of two reasons, Dragon Wasps film 2012one being curiosity and the other being that there IS an audience for these films, otherwise why would they be making them?
And maybe, just maybe, you’re the kind of person that enjoys them – even if you don’t know it yet.

Dragon Wasps is quite straight forward. A scientist goes missing in a South American jungle whilst investigating some kind of military genetics experiment gone wrong.
After a bit of digging around he’s carried away by huge fire spraying wasps.

His daughter is also a scientist with adventurous tendencies so she sets off with her friend to rescue her dad from the drug cartel ruled, killer creature infested rainforest.
Along the way they meet some US soldiers, they get on well and they agree to explore together. There are shoot-outs, there are explosions, there are killer, fire spraying wasps.
That about sums it up.

Dragon Wasps Movie 2012

Is it any good? Well the acting is mediocre to poor, the story is slow and predictable and the effects are bad, although not awful when compared to the other films in its class.

It’s better than Mega Piranha, isn’t quite as silly as Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus and has better acting than Mega Shark in Malibu.

If you haven’t seen any of those films, I could probably compare it to an episode of Dr Who on steroids. We’re talking thirty minutes of network quality content stretched across a full length feature.

It’s definitely not the worst B movie I’ve seen, but sadly it didn’t hold any surprises either.

Movie Rating: ★
