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

Nine days to die, even lacking a head
12 November 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Remi(no, really, it's her... I had to double-check to believe it, myself) returns from the original(as the *only one*, can't imagine why), and big bugs attack again. Yeah, they're not dead. No, it won't be explained. They're killing constantly in this one, so you have to wonder how they stay hidden. Frankly, most characters are really obviously introduced merely to be fodder. So, we're already in the direct-to-video sequel stage. And it's just around 80 minutes. What I will grant is that this doesn't stall in its pace like the original. And that's the only thing I can say in favor of this over del Toro's piece. I didn't care in the least about anyone in this... not in any positive way, at least(and it didn't feel fast or enjoyable). You know what, I'll grant that Lisa Kudrow was too much of a babe scientist, but did they have to make the lead of this so freaking socially awkward? Yes, she's attractive... still, how can she get dates? She's also impossible for us to relate to. We also have the creepy kid who "wants to hurt those that are happy", and the randy teenage guy. Oh, and a detective who's a jerk. Are we seriously expected to like these people? This tries to use the Long John appearance again, and it fails to be mysterious, tense or atmospheric. The logic is simply not there, and I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that this is the writer of Hollow Man II and Dracula 2000. Practical FX and production values are reasonable. The CGI and its interaction with live action elements are poor. And if you need more reasons to skip this, it has footage of the twin towers. The attempts at comedy are lame and powerfully unfunny. There is a bit of bloody, gory violence and strong language in this. The DVD comes with two decent featurettes, one a "movie-making diary" at 17 and a half minutes, the other all about the sound and 5 minutes and 40 seconds, and 5 minutes of deleted scenes(and you won't wonder why they cut it). I recommend this solely to the biggest fans of "huge insect" flicks. 3/10
