Huge cloud of bees brings down a bomber carrying an atomic bomb over an island near Japan. Some of the crew escapes and makes it to the island where they are killed by the insects. One of the local men is charged with the men's murder. Through a long winding chain of events it transpires the bees are a new species that were being bred by a mad scientist to get revenge on Germany for what happened during World War 2. (There's more but trust me you don't want to know) Disaster of a film is a kin to the horrible eco-films (Last Days of Planet Earth) Japan turned out in the 1970's. These were big on having a point but small on any real plot. Here the film drones on with lots of talk and not much happening. Sure there is two late in the game bee attacks but it doesn't make it worth sitting through the preceding 80 minutes. A dreadful film in the unfun way that only Japanese scifi films can be.

2 out of 10 because the two plane sequences at either end of the film are screamingly funny for all of the wrong reasons.(However they are not a reason to watch this movie).
