Heh. I tripped across the listing for this movie on Starz and recorded it. I fully agree with the reviews here about how horrible this movie is. But the low production values made it very funny (unintentionally so) -- especially the bad editing during the fight scenes, where they recycled footage of the bugs from the original. Shades of old blue screen-style special effects montages! The new low rent actors are screaming lines like, "Keep firing soldiers!" Meanwhile, in some OTHER battle far away, the bugs...

The mind-blowing thing for me is this is directed by Phil Tippett, of Tippett Studios. When the head of a special effects house directs a movie, I don't necessarily expect Oscar-winning performances from the actors. But I do expect good special effects. I'm surprised anyone associated with this wanted their names left in the credits. And I'm surprised Ed Neumeier, writer of this and the Robocop series, came up with such a clunker of a script.
