The biggest mistake here is that the genetically-engineered insects of the title take a backseat. Truly dreadful.
Dreadful acting and a basic, sweary script is the order of the day, with poor use of light making the film difficult to follow.
The set piece needs more attention, but the attacks are done reasonably well, an instil of progressive tension reasonably effective.
The foreboding set piece complements the horrific story wonderfully, while Charles Laughton is genuinely sinister.
The Rig fails to capitalise on any initial potential and becomes more tedious with every dragging minute of screen time.
Stands on its own two feet amongst the usual Brit comedy suspects, which is largely due to its cast of unknowns.
