Species is an amusing B-grade thriller that entertains intentionally and unintentionally. It's a curiosity how this garnered such a good cast, and the pay-off is good, as the actors mingle well, even Whitaker and his ridiculous character. With some very cheesy and cliché moments, this movie takes itself so seriously it becomes funny with its absurdity. The special effects are terrible and yet fun, and the dialogue is very basic. It becomes an entertaining movie as it is so bad. Few movies can claim that art.
