The quintessential 50's big bug movie finally comes to Blu-ray.

James Whitmore, James Arness, Joan Weldon and Edmund Gwenn star in this classic film about huge atomic mutated ants that first appear in the desert of New Mexico and quickly make for the sewers of Los Angeles.

The script, acting and effects are all top notch. Whitmore is a cop who sacrifices himself to save two little children trapped by the mutants, and his death scene always gets me.

The movie slowly builds to a great climax and it NEVER gets boring. The supporting cast includes Sean McClory, Onslow Stevens, Sandy Descher (in a great performance), Chris Drake, Fess Parker and Olin Howlin.

The Blu-ray looks fantastic with excellent sound quality as well. It has been a long time coming to Blu-ray and I commend Warner for finally getting it out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
