* TheyJustDidntCare: Allowing for NoBudget and improvised props, Nguyen still didn't exactly show that he was thorough with his direction.
** Many obviously botched lines were left in such as "part-times Eagles fan" and "you're a cats lover".
** Nguyen also completely ignored sound mixing or even taking a normal room tone, which is why the background would change during editing. For example, during the scene with Tom Hill, you could hear a brook babbling behind him when the shot was on him, but the sound of water would vanish when the camera was off him.
** The credits of this movie claim there was an editor, but there's not much evidence of one. The majority of scenes end on long, awkward silences where everyone stands around waiting for the director to call cut, flubbed lines are cut off in mid-sentence and spliced right into the retake, and wedged between two early scenes are a few frames of a car sitting in a parking lot, which either nobody noticed or bothered to trim out completely.
** Speaking of cars, there are quite a few people driving back ''towards'' the killer birds after the escape from the motel. It's almost like nobody told these drivers that they were in a movie...
** In fact, it seems the "editing" consisted of stopping filming and starting filming from another angle. In other words, there was no cutting or splicing (or video editing since the entire film was done on digital video.)
** You can see some of the forest fire bits vanish before the scene ends, or freeze completely.
** Whitney Moore, Nathalie's actress, obviously couldn't make herself take the movie seriously either. She's trying to hold back laughter in almost every scene she's in and giggles the whole time at the sheer stupidity. The audience is likely doing the same.

** There are many serious ecological concerns associated with global climate change, from abnormally short or long seasons to widespread flooding to powerful hurricanes to [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking more]] [[KnowYourVines poison ivy]]. However, "exploding mutant birds" is ''not'' one of them.

** James Nguyen obviously had no idea how big a deal being a Victoria's Secret cover model is - in terms of money or prestige. He makes it seem like just another model job.[[labelnote:Note]]To put it in perspective, a Victoria's Secret model being paid at the LOW end of the scale is still making ''several million dollars'' per year.[[/labelnote]]

** The board room scene is clearly the same scene repeated three or four times from different angles, making the padding even more apparent.

** The birds don't so much "fly" as "hover while slowly flapping their wings". They look worse than the aerial mounts in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. ''Far'' worse.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Whitney Moore (Nathalie) is usually cited as the best part of the film, both because she's clearly finding it as ridiculous as the audience and because she's gorgeous. [[{{Rifftrax}} Kevin Murphy forgives the entire first half of the movie after she strips down to her underwear.]]

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Sometimes the score will sound suspiciously like Vangelis' theme to ''ChariotsOfFire'' then JohnLennon's "Imagine" (shamelessly called "Imagine Peace") [[SoundtrackDissonance at the most inappropriate times]].
