In what appears to be a cross between Critters and The Towering Inferno, the residents of a shoddy L.A. apartment block are chased up to the roof by hoards of the eponymous hairy horrors. Written by

Terrence Mann's appearance as Ug is credited in the movie's end credits before he has even appeared in the movie. He only makes a short appearance in a scene running during the end credits, which ties the actions of this movie with the sequel Critters 4 (1992). See more »

Recently, I obtained the Critters 4-pack at a Dollar General. Since seeing any Critters movies at a store is such a rare occurrence, I decided to buy it. This way, I can finally watch the movies without having an Internet connection and I can also finally watch the two Critters movies that I have not seen yet: Critters 3 and Critters 4. After I saw the second film, I was shaky to see the third and fourth installments. The third one looked okay and the fourth one looked really boring. So, since I bought the 4-pack, I decided to give number 3 a watch. I saw it, and....
It's an okay movie. Yeah, it kind of sucks that we don't have any Brown family members in this movie, but then again, it would just be the same old stuff. The new characters are alright. I would've loved to see the bounty hunters back, but maybe it's a good thing that they're not in this movie, since we could finally be able to see how people kill the Crites without help from them. But the movie has it's fair share of stupid moments, like the scene where Josh (played by DiCaprio, by the way)mumbles to his dad that he didn't like being called "sport". Yeah, I get the "sport" part. His father called him that until his death, but we never saw Josh sigh or show any sign of getting bothered by the name, so it comes off as weird. We also have a Critter farting gag. I would've never thought that a Critters movie would stoop to that much of a low. Also, this is the only movie in the series (so far) that one of the Crites is given a name. In one scene, one Crite is referred to as Blackie by another Crite. The only character from the previous movies that appears in this one is Charlie. He's still Charlie.
Well, it's nice how they chose to be on Earth in this one instead of boring space like the fourth one. And one day, I'll get to that movie. I hope it's not as bad as I think.
