Storyline

When a cockroach-spread plague threatened to decimate the child population of New York City in the original Mimic, biologist Susan Tyler and her research associates developed a crossbreed species of insect, the "Judas Breed" and introduced them into the environment, where they were to spread a toxin, lethal to the cockroaches. The plan worked until the bugs evolved to mimic their next prey.....humans! Just when they were all thought to be dead, the giant Judas bugs are back, and this time they've mutated to take on human form! Written by Anonymous

Return of the roach.
17 September 2010 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

There's quite a lot I didn't understand about Mimic 2: I haven't the faintest idea who the scared guy was at the beginning of this film (nor the relevance of his suitcases packed full of dirt); I still cannot fathom out why the movie's giant genetically altered bug would develop a crush on high school teacher Remi (she's got a hot bod, but would she really appeal to an insect?); and I fail to see how a massive cockroach could successfully avoid capture by an elite military force by passing itself off as a member of the NYPD.

Thankfully, my inability to grasp precisely what was happening to whom and why didn't prevent me from having a fair bit of fun with this straight to DVD sequel to Guillermo Del Toro's original. Brisk direction from Jean de Segonzac, impressive set design (rainy alleyways scrawled with neon graffiti and lit with primary colours), a few well executed creature effects and a touch of gore, and perhaps the most ludicrous (but very welcome) 'strip down to underwear' scene for a female lead since Saffron Burrows climbed out of her wetsuit in Deep Blue Sea, all go to ensure that Mimic 2's 82 minutes pass rather painlessly.
