After his grandmother's death, 24-year-old Mike Hillary sets off in search of who he thinks is his real father. Little does he suspect the real scenario: his late mother was impregnated by aliens, and now they've sent someone down to bring back their "specimen"--dead or alive. Written by
This is not an excellent film. It was released when all of the "new science fiction films" were being released, The Faculty, The Relic etc.
The fact that the lead of Saved By The Bell, Mark-Paul Gosselaar is the main character is something to go on. The reason i watched this film is due to the fact that Mark Lutz, Groo from the series Angel stars as Blaine Masterson. Being a big fan of Angel i wanted to see Mark Lutz in another role besides that of the Groosulaug.
The Specimen attempts to be a cross between The Faculty, Firestarter and the Terminator, it does not really succeed, scenes are boring and overdone, there are shots of feet walking down corridors and the opening credits are almost unbearable.
I said it before that this is not a good film, but for all fans of Angel and Buffy it is good to see Mark Lutz in a different role besides the Groosulaug and the "Hunky Security Man" in the film Dick. Watch it, but rent something else too.
