holy crap this got a low IMDb rating!
1 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i saw this DVD having never seen SPECIES II before thinking "i wonder if its as good as the first was?" and all i have to say in response to watching it is "how does it only have 3.8/10?" I didn't have much expectations for it as a sequel but i was pleasantly surprised.

Michael Madsen and Marg Helgenberger return acting just as great as they were in the first film, as did Natasha Henstridge, Justin Lazard was a fantastic choice for his role, Mykelti Williamson, wasn't exactly award winning but he could have been a lot worse, and the same goes for James Cromwell.

the special effects were astonishing just as in the first one.

i thoroughly enjoyed this movie so i give it 8/10.

but my question for all haters of this movie and the first is "how else should it have been done? with Species rats?"
