What to Know

Critics Consensus

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

Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 1/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Apr 10, 1998 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Increased silliness combats the heightened grotesqueries, resulting in a stale sequel full of potential but failing badly in execution. Rated: 3/10 Jan 2, 2022 Full Review Steve Newton Georgia Straight There's probably better acting from the pole huggers at the Cecil than the sorry-ass cast of Species II. Rated: .5/5 Feb 2, 2014 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed A clone of the first film except with a small twist... Feb 7, 2011 Full Review Steve Biodrowski ESplatter '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.

Ryan B movie was s***. vfx werent as good, messy story, one likable character, not enough screen time for eve, a premise that went no where, messy writing and plot holes. disregards the things that made the original interesting- like the action was more choppy, everything felt so much lesser than the original. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Jelisije J One of the most laziest sequels in movie history that ignores the first film epilogue and disrespects its own story. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Marc Z I referred to "Junk Science" in my review of the original Species. This purported sequel is filled with just that-junk science. Take that and combine it with bad special effects, a poor script, lousy acting, and poor Direction and the results are not great. This one is loosely based on the first. In a poor attempt to do a "Terminator" twist the ,movie attempts to rehabilitate its villainous star and carries over some of the characters from the first to draw in the original's audience. There are some interesting elements. Natasha Henstridge is good, but not nearly as good as she was in the first. The movie is weak but I watched it anyway and can't believe there is a third part of the trilogy out there. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/18/23 Full Review margaret W 'SPECIES II: The Re-Specening' - is a poor follow-up to the (mostly) enjoyable first entry into this (now globally panned) Franchise of sequels that just seem to get worse with each entry (a true example of Hollywood at it's finest) Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/14/23 Full Review Steve D Henstridge is underused in this worse follow-up to the OK original. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The Mars thing doesn't make a damn sense but it's an enjoyable watch. The conspiracy didn't make it better at all, period. You better not having popcorn. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
