| Calling this bad is being far too kind
My main reason for seeing 'Big Bad Bugs' was it being part of my on going/on and off "seeing low budget films out of curiosity" quest. Expectations were conflicted, with the premise being somewhat intriguing if silly and with the potential to be a guilty pleasure. With it not looking particularly good and the low rating, part of me was nervous, but saw it anyway with an open mind and with the intent to not take it too seriously.

Which unfortunately was very difficult to do, because everything was executed so amateurishly. Making it an ehausting and frustrating watch. There was a serious temptation to turn 'Big Bad Bugs' off very early on, but being a fair reviewer who always gives films etc a proper chance and never judges something without seeing the whole thing (find it very immature and why people do it and brag about it is lost on me) that temptation was resisted.

'Big Bad Bugs' really is as terrible as the low ratings and negative reviews have indicated, actually being worse than what the advertising made it look like. Wanted a ridiculous if fun guilty pleasure, got instead a worse than incompetent mess and one of the worst films seen in a long time.

Don't know where to begin criticising, but the extremely cheap production values would be a good starting point. The special effects for the goofy and far from menacing creatures are especially risible, with the haphazard editing close behind. The script is pure ham fisted cheese, the excessive repetition gets tiresome and it's all deadly dull.

Story-wise, it is ridiculous with a lot of draggy pacing, as a result of paper thin, often unevenful and over-stretched story-telling, and clumsy and far from tense or suspenseful action. The ending is far-fetched and completely fails to engage or excite. The performances are dreadful all round with bland and annoying characters, Ted Jonas especially only shows one emotion which is shouting.

Overall, terrible. 1/10
