After a series of Amazonian Indian attacks on US owned petroleum installation in Brazil, both governments start a secret 'special program'. In fact colonel Ezekial's men use GM killer bees to eradicate the tribes. During an Indian attack, reporter Ann Bauer is stung, yet survives after a mysterious rescue. Dr. Stephen North realizes the venom has priceless healing powers and smuggles the bee aboard a flight to New York. Bauer, her nearly-divorced husband, Martin, who is aboard and her friend, US State Department project representative, Scotty, face potential mass-killing after turbulence releases the bees aboard.

Zero budget schlock? Yeah...so what?
If ever a film deserved "WTF?" It's this one. But hey they all had such FUN making it.
This is not a movie to be reviewed subjectively. You couldn't even call it a movie, but you know what? I enjoyed the whole damn thing. From probably the worst plane fx ever put up on screen, to the shoddy "lets blow it up then show it again from another angle" cinematography.. right the way though to Rutger Hauer's comical turn as the "wannabe baddest z-grade terrorist" ever unleashed on an unsuspecting bunch of refugees from the ANACONDA film set. The "Shadow People?????" heheheh! My only question is how did they ever get these actors to keep a straight face when delivering their lines.
Sheffer....who cut his teeth on zilch-grade flicks (TURBULENCE 3 springs to mind) excels himself here in his pursuit of Miss Anwar while endeavoring to prevent the "killer bees" (Irwin Allen sold them what he had left over from THE SWARM) from infiltrating the first-class cabin of the hitherto unknown Boeing design we see here.
It is the very comical ineptitude of everyone from the Director to the tea lady that makes this the crap classic it is. Where else you gonna see killer bees massing for attack in the toilet bowl? scores of trained and fully armed commandos unable to bring down a bunch of natives with spears? A 737 perform a 180 degree U-turn in less than 5 seconds? some teenage d***wad re-program a heat seeking missile with his lap-top? ONLY here my friends!
Pay homage where its due. THIS is the cruddiest and most entertaining piece of unoriginal if not downright hysterical cinematic flotsam ever to grace your local bargain-bin. Grab it while it's hot!
