About the Movie
Having just returned from a mission to Mars, Commander Ross (Justin Lazard) isn't exactly himself. He's slowly becoming a terrifying alien entity with a one track mind - to procreate with human women. When countless women suffer gruesome deaths after bearing half-alien offspring, scientist Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger) and hired assassin Press Lennox (Michael Madsen) use Eve (Henstridge), a more tempered alien clone, to find Ross and his virulent brood. But they underestimate Eve's maternal drive, and before long she escapes to mate with Ross in order to create a purer and unstoppable race that could spell doom for mankind. As time is running out, the ultimate battle of human brain over alien brawn takes place in a chilling climax that puts Darwin’s theory to the ultimate test and only the strongest species will survive.
Awful (& I liked the first Species)
I saw this movie in the theaters, and I should have suspected something when it wasn't screened for critics. This was bad. The first film was a B-movie with good actors, took the material just serious enough for drama but definitely had fun. This felt like a sequel, was humorless, and mostly idiotic. The scene that made me give up, was when the doctor is testing blood samples from the astronauts. He is not wearing gloves, must not be worried about HIV. A pool of contaminated blood starts crawling around the table on its own, and this doctor decides to touch it with his bare hand ?!
Dont waste your time! Really Bad Movie.
This was a bad movie. I liked the first one, but this was your stereotypical bad sequel. If you are insistant on seeing this movie, rent it, don't waste the 9.99 to buy it.
