    Perfect late-summer drive-in fare.

    Smoothly maneuvering within the limitations of genre conventions, Bats emerges as a vigorously paced and surprisingly satisfying piece of work.
  3. 40
    Overlong, hard look at the perils of tampering with Creation.
  4. So uninvolving it scarcely matters what it looks like.
  5. 25
    Not especially scary or funny, this lame comedy-thriller wastes a decent cast in a plodding tale.
  6. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    A reassuring little cheeseball of a movie.
  7. 0
    It's relentlessly bad in a way that just makes those theatre seats plain uncomfortable.

    This movie is a real gem...no I take that back it is a (Lou) Diamond (Phillips)! As always The Diamond brings his "A" game to the role and This movie is a real gem...no I take that back it is a (Lou) Diamond (Phillips)! As always The Diamond brings his "A" game to the role and owns it. He puts on that oversized sherriffs hat and you think WOW did he quit acting and take on a a life of crime fighting. This is a must watch for anybody who wants to see a bunch of bats get handed some Texas justice Diamond style! Collapse
