      Louise Kennedy Boston Globe Rated: 2/4 Nov 24, 2011 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed In the end, all it really is is a guilty pleasure. Apr 29, 2009 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...suffers from an egregiously low-rent vibe that effectively distances it from Paul Verhoeven's comparitively masterful 1997 effort. Rated: 2/4 Aug 11, 2008 Full Review Robert Strohmeyer Filmcritic.com If you liked the original, you'll hate the sequel and everyone involved in the making of it. Rated: 1/5 Jun 23, 2004 Full Review Brian Mckay eFilmCritic.com Likely to put off fans of the original, pleasing only those who can reap high entertainment value from the bare-bones ingredients of gore, boobs, and bug-splatter. Rated: 2/5 Jun 18, 2004 Full Review Caffeinated Clint Moviehole Isn't Verhoeven's original, but it's still a pleasing second coming for the bug squashers Apr 14, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Andrea C Sequel di cui probabilmente si sentiva il bisogno ma che sbaglia completamente ad interpretare tale richiesta, sfornando un prodotto lontano anni luce dal primo originale e di successo capitolo. Viene quasi totalmente dimenticata quell'ironia a tratti satirica che aveva contraddistinto la prima opera, mentre il progetto si sposta di fatto su un classico film sci-fi che altro non fa che ricalcare in modo molto sinistro uno dei capitoli della saga di Alien. Tolta però la satira, quel che resta è un cast di basso livello con una sceneggiatura poco interessante. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Scuba S It's just a worse version of the first movie. The atmosphere is there, and the actors are just as bad, but the kicker is the practical effects are worse, and there is only one set. Were the first movie cost $105,000,000 to make, this one only cost $7,000,000 and it shows. It's all left over props. In all, it's just a worse version of the first movie, and space among us, not good, not bad. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/26/23 Full Review Adrian M Much the same only not quite as good is the big message from this film, which doesn't really add a whole lot to the first film. Like most sequels, this is primarily just a cash grab. However, I did like the use of mind control bugs that climb into people's mouths then take over not only their brains but their whole bodies, ultimately turning them into more mind control bugs. It is a horror genre that I really enjoy, though this one wasn't proper horror as it didn't really have anything scary or gory. Nonetheless, the genre was still there. Look, it wasn't bad, but it is a sequel and it was pretty predictable as a sequel. Even the lead actors of the first movie didn't bother to show up! Ugh. At least it's good for people who might want to play one of their computer games based on this and want some lore. Oh and a lot of this does look like StarCraft, as if StarCraft's designers watched this and created their game based on it. Hmm. Anyway, not too bad, but I gave it 6 1/2 out of 10. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/23 Full Review jelisije j A sequel that had a straight forward plot and interesting characters that left me at the end of the day surprisingly satisfied. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Keenman This movie made me feel so robbed of a proper sequel. I suggest just skipping this movie altogether don't waste your time watching this piece of garbage. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/24/22 Full Review Audience Member This sequel carries only shards of the original's personality or meaning and they too are entirely lost in a godawful, narratively limited script inundated with cardboard characters, cringe-worthy dialogues, piss-poor attempts at aping the first film and cliched subplots including a tasteless expansion of Arachnid lore, while the acting is so spectacularly unconvincing you're constantly reminded you're watching cosplay. If it weren't for the decent effects, this would've been utterly abominable. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
