Species II

Critics Consensus

Clumsily exploitative and sloppily assembled, Species II fails to clear the rather low bar set by its less-than-stellar predecessor.

Movie Info

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 one goal -- 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 (Natasha Henstridge), a more tempered alien clone, to find Ross and his brood. Before long Eve escapes to mate with Ross.

    What's better than alien conquest? Alien conquest through sex, through rape no less ("They came from millions of miles of space ta git muh boo-tay!"). It sounds like a bit much, and yet it's the basis of this sequel ("So good they come back fer seconds!"), which is little more than sexploitation for nerds. And there is a third, too, so this one made some money.

    Improving on the original, Species II delivers a smart and terrifying new tale of horror. An astronaut crew on a mission to Mars brings back an alien infection that creates hybrids that could ravage the human population. Michael Madsen, Natasha Henstridge, and Marg Helgenberger return, and are joined by James Cromwell and Sarah Wynter. Aside from the improved cast, the story is also better told and more coherent than in the first film. The creature effects are also more gruesome and more horrific. Gratuitous and exploitative, Species II is still a B-horror film but it delivers a solid adventure and some good scares.

    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.
