Mosquito Man (2014/Big Screen Entertainment DVD Set)



Picture: C Sound: B Extras: B- Film: C



Michael Manasseri's Mosquito Man (2014) is a superhero meets monster movie that is decently made, fast paced, and hilarious. While the digital effects at times are SyFy Channel-worthy, the cinematography and editing is crisp and inventive, almost playing out like an Edgar Wright film. This film was made back in 2011 under a different name, Sucker, and is just now seeing home video release. I would actually say that I enjoyed it more than I did James Gunn's Super. The film co-stars Jordan Trovillion, Kimberley Kates, Monty Bane, Danny Mooney, and Lloyd Kaufman.


Jim Crawley (Michael Manasseri) is having a really bad day. He gets fired from his job, his car is towed and impounded, and he discovers his wife is having an affair with his arch enemy. To make matters worse, Jim gets abducted by an evil scientist (Ricky Wayne) who is conducting illegal human testing on a vaccine against a deadly mosquito-borne virus spreading across the planet. It turns out that years of exposure to nuclear radiation and mosquito DNA don't mix well... Jim transforms into a half man/half mosquito hell bent on revenge.


The standard definition transfer is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track. At times, the transfer is a little chunky and not too detailed and could definitely benefit to a Blu-ray master.


Extras include:

Behind The Scenes

Director's Cut

Outtakes

Deleted Scenes

Cast and Crew Photos

Trailer



If you like B Movies that are over the top and silly, then you will probably appreciate what Mosquito Man has to offer. Just don't expect it to win an Oscar.
