It is the first film of the Species franchise that does not feature Natasha Henstridge, who played Sil in the first film as well as Eve in the two previous movies (Even though her role in Species III was a small cameo). See more »
When Miranda is 'born' the second time and she gets up after rolling on the floor you can clearly see she is wearing skin-colored underwear to cover herself below the waist. See more »
Being a fan of the "Species" films, especially loving Species II, I watched this with open arms. I did not think it worked. Partly because the storyline seemed so short-lived. The trailer did look a tad on the positive side though but that, is how trailers are designed. But this is nothing at all like the previous ones, except for the Alien DNA etc etc.
This has awful acting, one hell of a bad bad accent and an OK blond playing the Alien femme fatal, but not worth the 90 or so minutes that it ended up as. If the species films are ever going to work and be believable they need to be serious, with serious (good, well-known) actors. That alone would help the publicity! But no, they go for the opposite.
I even wished afterwards that I had been a director doing this film. Oh my god would I have made some CHANGES! Should have mixed the DNA with sense instead of aliens LOL
big no no no no no, cannot emphasize that enough.
