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

Not as good as the first Mimic
17 July 2001 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This movie was worst than the first Mimic movie. First of all the plot of the movie is pretty bad. It's about a cockroach race that has come back to haunt the people of New York.

Remy(alix koromzay) an elementary school teacher, is the main character of the movie, she teaches a children biology. Klaskin(Bruno Campos) plays the detective, who tries to find out the mysterious murderer incidents. In the beginning of the movie, the story already falls apart. We don't even know where the cockroaches even come from. The story isn't good at all and the effects are typical. There's even a scene that seems to copy a part of a movie from every bug movie ever made IE Ticks. Believe me this movie is not worth to watch. 82 min is not worth it to waste your day. Rent the first mimic at least the acting and the scenes are much better.
