Fairly lame bug horror. Not del Toro's best, to put it mildly.

It looks scary, but it doesn't feel scary. The elements are in place, but they're too familiar. Surprise is gone.

Del Toro consegue criar alguns bons momentos de tensão e o filme conta com um design de produção bastante acima da média para exemplares do gênero. Ainda assim, a história óbvia, típica de uma produção B, resulta em um longa descartável.

A dark, dank and derivative horror ride only an Orkin man could truly love.

Followed its terrific first half with a descent into horror movie formulaic crap.

While a visual treat, Mimic is exactly that, a film which mimics other styles and plot elements. In this case Alien and David Cronenberg's The Fly and Videodrome.

A fun, goopy throwback to the Monster Flicks of yesterday.

Del Toro does not make Tyler a symbol of science gone out of control or of science for greed, instead he makes her a scientist who in doing good has created a monster and has to live with that guilt.

It's clear now that Del Toro's favorite themes and symbols were already in place, with the vast underground setting, machinery, and man's interference in the supernatural order of things -- not to mention a talent for pure terror.

It comes off smarter and creepier than I recall the original, less about scares than a sustained atmosphere of eerie unease and skittery threats.
