Giant bugs! Political Satire! Loads of guns! Sure it’s not faithful to the original novel but who cares? Micheal Ironside easily steals the show being one of the best on-screen characters ever(“COME ON YOU APES! YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?”).
The cgi’s pretty top notch too considering it was released in ’97. I’m sure they’re trying to send a political message here but c’mon! I wanna watch more bugs get blown up! The gore scenes are pretty awesome too.
The only thing I didn’t like was the romance sub plot and where Dina Meyer dies. I mean she’s a totally rad and awesome character! I am totally baffled why Casper Van Dien’s character decided to choose that ice queen Denise Richards instead(I was hoping for her brains to get scooped out though).
Pretty fun movie though! Would rate an 8.5 out of 10.
