Storyline

Entomologist Colt left the firm of his ex Vicky's dad Russ and his ruthless partner Gary, in order to regain his scientific independence and ethical virginity. After people are found on several founds with strange bite-marks, which turn out to be the work genetically miss-manipulated locusts, Colt teams up again with Vicky, who works for the public health authorities. After analyzing the facts, they join the heroic, possibly hopeless fight to stop the locust swarm spreading and endangering millions in most of Northern America. Written by KGF Vissers

The terrain shown at the end with the caption "Near Lafayette, Indiana" is not typical of that area of northwest Indiana, which tends to be very flat except on the banks of the Wabash river. The immediate Lafayette, Indiana area also is mostly urban and not as rural as pictured. See more »

Where to start?
30 May 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I have made no secret of disliking SyFy's movies, but I still watch them to see if they ever make anything tolerable. They've made a few, but a vast majority of them are not worth bothering with. And that is the case with Wild Swarms, which has everything I hate about SyFy and more. The acting is really uninspired, even from Jeff Fahey, who has saved a bad movie more than once but not this time, with David Keith trying and failing to give credibility to a one-dimensional and stereotypical a villain as you could get and Dan Cortese a wooden lead. The rest of the characters are also clichéd and none of them are likable in any way. Wild Swarms is also badly made, I have often criticised SyFy's films for having choppy or hackneyed editing, Wild Swarms's editing is an insult to those words, while the special effects, of which the film is heavily reliant on, are terrible never once coming across as believable. The dialogue is cheesy and stilted, the direction is lazy and the story is predictable, often ridiculous and with all the morality I am going to set a task to find a more preachy SyFy movie than this one, my prediction is that I'm never going to find it. Overall, an awful movie that is difficult to begin criticising as everything is wrong with it. 1/10 Bethany Cox
