    Vivid and visually stunning.
  2. This 3-D Imax film puts you at eye level with awesome creatures that look like alien beasts from deep space.
  3. Here's one movie you'll want to see with an audience of squealing, excited, terrified kids, their arms extended greedily to grab, squish or ward off all things exoskeletal and beady-eyed. It's gross, but in the nicest way (meaning no roaches).
  4. 60
    This otherwise sober film's high ick factor is clearly designed to convince restless students that entomology is extremely cool.
  5. 50
    Kids will get off on Bugs! and then go home and have nightmares. Adults who accompany them may have to fight off sleep before they get home.
  6. Reviewed by: Ben Kenigsberg
    As with the more glamorously photographed "MicroCosmos," the climbing, scurrying, and munching eventually grows tiresome, but the film is not without its highlights.
  7. By the standards of most IMAX films, this is a bizarre entry, a documentary about bugs that was produced by Terminix, the pest control company.
