A small boy abandoned in the jungle and raised by a benevolent group of apes slowly begins to realize that he isn't quite like the rest of his primate family in this touching meditation on the bond shared between man and beast.
We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of. Written by
A direct to video sequel of one of the greatest sci-fi epics of all time, this is exactly what you would expect: static, low budget, derivative, horribly acted and bearing only the slightest resemblance to the original. The FX are laughable, the acting atrocious, the plot straight out of many previous sci-fi ditties like THE HIDDEN and THE THING and BLADE RUNNER. One of the things that made the original such a masterpiece is that it is first and foremost a brilliant satire, and a sci-fi epic second. The sequel jettisons any attempt at satire and sticks several people on a single set for the majority of the flick. The only thing that makes it worthwile is some truly disgusting gore effects in the second half. Also, there is a ravishing if scary young blonde who is horny and nekkid in many of her scenes. Plus an amply endowed captain (who played a small role in the first movie) struts around in a very tight and very low cut wife beater in the second half.
