Storyline

In a decaying neighborhood, asthmatic and allergic amateur photographer Marvin Montrose spends his days and nights confined in his room, snooping on his neighbors in the next building with his camera. When a boy disappears in the spot and then the local drug dealer Desmond, Marvin suspects a mysterious garbage man and his sister Rosy and her friend Carmen investigate. Meanwhile, Marvin witnesses the death of Detective Gary Dumars and a stranger on the street by two mutant Judas Breed insects and discloses that their prime suspect is the CDC Agent Kirchner.

Had good potentials... but wasted them.
27 December 2005 | by shanfloydSee all my reviews

Like all straight-to-video sequels of minor franchises, "Mimic: Sentinel" had good original plot but the execution and presentation became poor. All the main characters like Marvin or Rosie are quite unique. And the influence of "Rear Window" was also quite interesting. But the film suffered from what it was bound to suffer -- poor screenplay, bad acting and the same boring ending.

Some interesting approaches are evident though when it comes to cinematography. The use of dark contrast during night shots and redundant use of still pictures surely add some nice flavour to the film for the viewer.
