      New Spice over Old Spice Director James Nguyen must've been trolling. I'm pretty sure he had an opportunity to assemble at least half-decent editing. Instead, his false confidence soars higher than the Birds he tries to muster into the film as Antagonists. There is just nothing good to say about this film, maybe you'll have the time of your life in cringed laughter the first time you watch it, but once it gets old, it becomes what it truly is, Utter Garbage that ages stale. Talk about Generic and Cliche Direction, Non-Charismatic Acting, The Worst Editing in history that could've been avoided, Cinematography that looks like it's off a 1990s Cassette Tape.. in 2010, Tedious Pacing that loses you the first few minutes of the film and a soundtrack that practically gets muted due to the editing errors of the film. The Director even made up Crew names because he failed to hire a full time Crew! Sums up the film. 0.4 / 4.0 | 11% Positive Score Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Shane K I've seen videos on YouTube that have better visual effects. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Sofia A cinematic wonder, beyond basic practicality, proving itself the antithesis to comprehension. Exceeds the greater knowledge of the universe. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Debby Y The CGI is… oof, don't want to spoil it! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review marz WORST MOVIE IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE🤩 its so funny tho like the bird animation lol Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Warren One of the worst movies ever, there is nothing good about besides sometimes being so bad it's good.

      Amy Nicholson Boxoffice Magazine Nguyen's DIY-fingerprints are on every frame. Like The Room, it's the antidote to mass culture -- a singular auteur with a dream. Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2010 Full Review Ronnie Scheib Variety Howlingly bad films are a dime a dozen, but the evident Ed Wood-like sincerity with which writer-director James Nguyen lovingly crafted this compendium of cinematic don'ts gives it a goofy, almost surrealist charm. Jul 6, 2010 Full Review Jennie Punter Globe and Mail Simply foul. Rated: 0/4 Jun 11, 2010 Full Review Sebastian Zavala Kahn Me gusta el cine It is possible that "Birdemic: Shock and Terror" is one of the worst films ever made ... and that is precisely why it will not be forgotten. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 0.5/5 Mar 25, 2020 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand A shot-on-video reworking of The Birds as a screwy commentary on the dangers of global warming, Birdemic: Shock and Terror pours every stupid horror movie clich into an abstract road movie ... Jul 1, 2017 Full Review Anton Bitel Eye for Film so dull, incompetent and ridiculous that it can and will be championed only by a repeat audience of ironists and iconoclasts looking for the next cult film to worship.
