In the science-fiction thriller Species (1995), Natasha Hentsridge appeared as the beautiful but deadly Sil, a human-alien DNA combo. In this sequel, Hentsridge portrays Eve, a government experiment concocted to gain an understanding of how to combat future aliens, while Michael Madsen and Marg Helgenberger repeat their roles from the earlier film. When astronaut Patrick Ross (Justin Lazard) returns from the first manned Mars expedition, he's infected with the same DNA that spawned Sil and Eve.

'It's awful; it's just awful, gasps Marg Helgenberger in one scene of this absolutely abysmal follow-up ... viewers are likely to find their heads nodding in agreement.
A totally unnecessary sequel that will likely only please 12-year-old boys.
The sequel ups the "silly" ante without bringing any new brains to the table.
A stinky sequel with a huge DUH factor.
Pure exploitation of breasts, blood, and beasts, often without digital enhancement. Absolutely freakin' brilliant!
I loved the exploding alien birth. What a riot!
For all the blood and gore, nudity, and sex thrown in, Species II is, quite simply, a vapid bore.
what can be said about a movie that focuses largely on the struggle of government agents to keep ex-astronauts from having sex? Leave it to Dr. Baker: 'It's awful,' she moans, prior to the slime-drenched finale. 'Just awful!'
Species II may be notable only in that it is an extreme, sadly robust example of the troubling trend of modern horror films to give sex a bad name.
Species II is one sequel that screams...Yuck! It also conjures up...Why? Screenplay be damned. Acting? Throw it out the window.
