Arousing the Species
9 August 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Beautiful blonde college professor Helena Mattsson (as Miranda) finishes a lecture and goes to see her uncle and father-figure Ben Cross (as Tom Hollander), a scientist and museum worker. They consider a move to Oxford, where Ms. Mattsson has a job offer. It seems like a good idea. Then, "Species: The Awakening" happens. Cross tells Mattsson about her DNA dilemma and they go to Mexico, where they seek help from similarly positioned Dominic Keating (as Forbes McGuire) and Marlene Favela (as Azura)...

In Mexico, Cross discovers nuns are really wicked cool and the cab drivers can take you for a wild ride. Director Nick Lyon gives the movie a much-needed lift with this part. However, Cross is far too serious and accomplished an actor for his part. He might have added some tongue-in-cheek, if asked. Of course, the movie takes itself too seriously. It's really only titillation and alien effects; it's not serious science fiction. The women are beautiful, but diseased. The story is easy to follow, but not really engaging.

*** Species: The Awakening (10/2/07) Nick Lyon ~ Ben Cross, Helena Mattsson, Dominic Keating, Marlene Favela
