A military unit find themselves the target of giant predator wasps in this low-budget sci-fi from director Joe Knee. Whilst searching for her missing father in the jungles of Belize, entomologist Gina Humphries (Dominika Juillet), along with assistant Rhonda (Nikolette Noel), find themselves in deep trouble when they and their escort of soldiers are ambushed by local guerillas. Their problems are only just beginning, however, as they soon come under attack from a swarm of killer 'Dragon Wasps' shooting flames from their abdomens.

There are films that have intricate plots with hidden meaning, films where serious issues are brought out and films that make you stop and think - Dragon Wasps is not one of these. This is a modern B movie and has the same feel as Ray Harryhausen's 1961 film Mysterious Island. It has everything you'd expect from a film of this sort - it's cheesy, the special effects are not the best but this is what makes it appealing. Dragon Wasps follows in the tradition of drive-thru classics such as The Blob and Godzilla - not a big-budget blockbuster but an entertaining old-fashioned adventure that does not detract with over-the-top CGI, long deep speeches or the intense development of relationships between characters.

The nice thing about this monster movie is that it does exactly what it says on the tin. Throughout the movie there are plenty of giant buzzing wasps and better than that they breathe fire. That's the dragon part. Dragon Wasps is what it is, a fun adventure with many guns, bombs and yes, even cocaine. Add to that a witch doctor moment, eating raw intestines and cannibals and you are all set for a great ride. Of course there is a bit of gore too but it's not too bad.

All in all I thought Dragon Wasps was a light-hearted bit of entertainment. And if you think giant wasps may be a little far-fetched, well, I say if we're ready to believe in blue people on another planet why not dragon wasps? As John Hammond would say : "I love the jungle!"

I love these kind of movies, they are highly watch able, without being over the top. Actors were good and wasps believable. Passed a pleasant hour or so.

The plot is laughable and the acting is risible. The budget must have been microscopic. Do not waste your time or money.
