With a title such as this film has, I was expecting very little, which is just as well. The story, if there is such a thing involved here; is one of spiders who have been in outer space find their way to Earth, soon to be realised by humans that these creatures have something which is not good for any living creature already living here.
I do not think that the makers of the film were trying to be smart or deep with what they created here, there may be the slightest (very slight) situation of politicians and scientist arguing over how the situation should be dealt with when it comes to the public, almost having a dig at how we may perceive some of our politicians. But this is a brainless horror, sci-fi, and thriller. One which is not trying to tax our brains and we merely watch the characters trying to survive the attack of multiple spiders which seem to grow bigger in earth’s atmosphere… of course.
This film was probably promoted on the 3D aspect rather than anything else we have here. The writing, directing, acting, special effects are nowhere near top notch and after a short while we expect very little from the film. Not long into the film, your eyes will glaze over with what is happening.
This is a very generic film which doesn’t do much other than take up an hour and a half of your time. If you are looking for something to watch and pay very little attention to, this is a film which barely gets your attention and you will not notice or care that you’ve missed some supposedly big plot point, which means very little in what is nothing more than big spiders attacking Earth. I don’t think the audience could even feel relieved when the film is over, as we were probably never really paying attention in the first place. It is a film that, if you’re with a group of friends, it will be on in the background while you chat about whatever is going on in your life.
It is certainly not worth paying to see, it is something which, if it happens to be on TV while flicking through the channels, maybe leave it on if you want some background noise while you do other things. The talent involved in the making of this film probably took part in this as they needed to pay their bills and are probably ashamed to have this on their credits of film.
