The cinematography is good. Although it has that distinct quality noticeable in most B-movie films, the picture is crisp and clear.
Tsunambee has an interesting plot. It’s familiar. This isn’t the first film about killer bees or killer wasps. On the same token, the story has underlying religious tones. The film opens with a Bible scripture from Revelations. There are also other scriptures in the beginning scenes and frequent talks of religion.
There is also a great plot twist I have not seen in like-minded films. This includes the major twist at the end I did not see coming. This heightens the film. Unfortunately, the movie cuts out after this. There’s no telling how the film concludes. This also has me wondering if a sequel could be in the works.
The music selection is by Przemyslaw Kopczyk and Alvaro Morello. A mixture of fast-paced tunes that fits for action-driven films such as Tsunambee. The score is more noticeable in the beginning and ending credits. The opening score is an enticing melody. Also equipped with intense, dramatic theatrical sounds. The closing score is a fun, upbeat selection.
The practical effects were good but creature effects for the wasps were a different issue. These special effects were worse than B-movie quality.
The cast performances and special effects were mediocre. The prosthetic of the wasps and the nature of the violence and kill scenes are of low quality. This results in the scare factor to drop. The viewing experience was poor. Toned down by the mediocrity of the special effects and the cast performances. The violence becomes minimized; almost to PG-13 quality.
The trailer for Tsunambee is high-paced with action. It entices the viewer. The film has its moments, but it’s not as successful in its execution and deliverance. Certain scenes, the ones meant to be violent, stayed minimal. You see the violence, as most of it is perceptive and suggestive. Equivalent to old school Horror cinematic methods.
