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

it's alright
5 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie wasn't bad but it wasn't good either, it's in the middle. It's about a teacher (koromzay) who along with her friend Nicky (estes) and a young boy she teaches are trapped in a school with the bugs. They have to find a way out before the bugs eat them, no duh. Also a cop named klaski comes to their rescue. This movie has a little more gore than the first. For this movie in a 1-10, I give it a 5. They made a mimic 3 after this one but I didn't see the third. This movie probably should have been in the movie theaters. It was good enough. By the way there's a bit of twist in the ending. These characters were not that great either. The only reason I didn't like the movie that much is because it wasn't enough like the original mimic movie with mira sorvino and charles dutton.
