Mutiny of the Worker Bees review – adjusting to the fast-paced tech life From dosser to hard-worker.

3.5

Summary

Netflix’s Mutiny of the Worker Bees is worth a stab — its office-type comedy and relatability will have you giggling at least.

Netflix film Mutiny of the Worker Bees was released on the platform on May 20, 2020 — this review of the comedy does not contain spoilers.


There’s nothing more daunting than trying out a new workplace. Especially when you’ve established yourself as a certain person for years, within a certain job, and then you are rolled towards a new set of faces who have already banded together with their own “unique” cliques and career desires. Mutiny of the Worker Bees follows Omar — a man who was super-smart, gaining the best averages in his education establishments, and his grandfather thinks it is his time to stop wasting away and land himself a job at a tech company in Mexico.

The comedy film purposefully minimizes the character of Omar to be smaller than he actually is — he’s smart but reduced, easily swayed by attractiveness and pathetically stomped on by authority. Mutiny of the Worker Bees provides a scenario where Omar has to adapt to a dysfunctional workplace which is all about survival — the bosses are unreasonable and it’s evident rather quickly that newbies have to join a “clique”. The Netflix film does a marvelous job of providing the experiences of what happens to many corporate workers in fast-paced companies around the world. It can be cruel sometimes.

Mutiny of the Worker Bees gives that dosser to hard-worker vibe, as Omar adjusts to the fast-paced tech life. As the movie wears on, Omar has ideas but also a love interest; the very foundations he is building are challenged. The Netflix film is fun but also symbolic of our human nature — the film’s comedic approach, which often veers on being silly at times, is purely a caricature to real-life, that dog eats dog world conundrum that gets the best of young generations.

Netflix’s Mutiny of the Worker Bees is worth a stab — its office-type comedy and relatability will have you giggling at least.
