Movie Info

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.

There's probably better acting from the pole huggers at the Cecil than the sorry-ass cast of Species II.

A clone of the first film except with a small twist...

'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.

You don't need to have seen the original Species to appreciate how utterly lousy Species II is.

Decent sequel to Species, Species II is pure popcorn Sci Fi horror that will most likely appeal to fans of the first, or any monster film fan looking for a good gore fest. Though not as fun as the firs, Species II proves to be a lot better than the third and fourth films in this series. This is an impressive sequel that though is far from perfect, has enough momentum to entertain the viewer. This film has enough gore elements to overshadow the paper thin plot, and works. The film is pure popcorn sci fi horror, and though not memorable by any means, this film, this film is nonetheless a worthy film to watch compared to the final two sequels that would follow this film. The acting here is decent at best, nothing ever great, or remarkable. The plot is so-so, and doesn't do anything to blow you away. However what this sequel does is deliver good gore content, and it does it very well. The film plays out like a mindless sci fi horror action film, and it doesn't possess anything truly remarkable about it. Overall this is a fun film that should appeal to fans of alien, monster films. If you can excuse the paper thin plot, you'll most likely enjoy the film. Fans of the first film will most likely enjoy this one as much as the first. Though lacking in content, the film delivers and in the end, that's what matters.

I thought this was an ok follow up to the first film. It keeps 3 of the original cast, including Natasha Henstridge. It's more violent, gory and raunchy than the first as this time round a male astronaut is infected with the alien DNA and has an urge to breed. Not as good as the first but far better than I thought it would be.
