Storyline

While being transported in a military ambulance and supposed dead, Eve delivers an offspring and is killed by a half-breed. The baby girl is abducted by Dr. Abbot, and a couple of days later she grows up, reaching adulthood and becoming a gorgeous young woman called Sara. Dr. Abbot expects to develop a perfect DNA using Sara's eggs and win the Nobel Prize, and invites the student Dean to be his assistant and share his research and future awards. But while Sara unsuccessfully chases a perfect mate for her to generate a perfect being, the flawed half-breeds led by Amelia try to reproduce with her to survive their species.

Radio DJ: Most people don't see it, or don't want to see it. The evidence is right there, but they refuse to make the connection. We have Colleen on line 1.
Colleen: Oh, absolutely. We are living in a world of high strangeness. The fact is, all this activity started happening at a certain definite point in our history. Before the early '50s, there's nothing. Then it all began. The sightings, the signals - too many to deny. So you have to ask yourself, "What specific event caused this sudden uptick in...

And Species hits direct to video quality
18 December 2004 | by Anonymous_MaxineSee all my reviews

Many would argue that with part II the Species films had already reached a sufficiently abysmal quality level as to deserve to go straight to video. There was, however, too much money spent on the first sequel and too much interest in the series still left over from the 1st film for this to be an option, but with part III there are no theatrical shenanigans in sight. Species III is a direct to video mess from start to finish. It was hard enough to believe in Species II that they made a clone of Sil, but I suppose it can be believed since the scientists wanted to study her for weaknesses that could be used in case another outbreak of aliens occurred.

So in the original film, Sil was created, escaped promptly and went looking for a mate. She was a vicious enemy throughout, and her pursuers were desperate to capture and kill her, knowing at least vaguely what she was capable of. In part II they make a clone and keep her in a huge glass cage, which is more like a living room surrounded by thick glass, and complete with everything from a treadmill to a television set. Dr. Baker, the lead scientist, even routinely went inside the cage with her and the two had civilized conversations. In part III there is a male scientist that seems to think that the new Eve, this time named Sara, is his daughter. He even tells her stories as he tucks her into a bed in his house.

Part III starts where part II left off, with the fatally wounded Eve being transferred by military ambulance to be disposed of. I like that two low level guys are sent off alone with Eve's body, with not a single other vehicle along to make sure that the transport gets safely to its destination. Needless to say, all hell breaks loose in the form of two babies born from Eve's dead-then-alive-then-dead-again body, after which the movie has no idea where it's supposed to go. At least I assume they were both born in the ambulance, One of them was just kind of there. There is so little effort put into maintaining any linearity to the aliens in this film, since they grow and change so fast, that pretty soon you'll find yourself just accepting that there are a lot of aliens running around trying to mate, as well as lots of half breeds complicating matters further.

Our hero may be the dumbest thing about the entire movie, and not by any fault of Robin Dunne, the actor who played him. It seems that Dean is working on a fission reactor, giving a tour of his team's progress at the beginning of the movie, only to rush out and arrive late to class, at which point he is scolded by his idiot professor as if he were in 3rd grade. His professor soon starts fantasizing about viruses, soon becoming furious that someone would be so inconsiderate to plan the destruction of the only remaining smallpox virus still in existence, which is kept contained for studying purposes. Not only does he almost get emotional about a virus, but when Dean points out some of the imperfections of viruses, his professor becomes furious with him once again, and then a student pushes past him outside of class, angrily calling him a "specist." I had no idea that viruses had interest groups.

It was nice that Natasha Henstridge made a notable guest appearance at the beginning of the film, although she only served to remind the viewer that no one else but her can play the alien in a Species film. The combined alien and human DNA has once again cooked up some more staggering hotties. Not only does this genetic combination consistently cook up hot blondes, but now breast implants have been added to the blonde and a brunette is thrown in for good measure. Yes, Sunny Mabrey is nice enough to bare her plastic breasts for much of her screen time. The brunette alien, who appears in the film out of nowhere, has a quick and wildly unsexy sex scene with a gas station attendant before speeding off in her $140,000 Ferrari, leaving a skewered carcass and the rest of the gas station employees just as clueless as us in the audience.

Amelia Cooke, who plays the brunette alien, does offer a shining moment of interest well into the fourth half hour of this film and after an hour and a half of slogging through a lot of pus-filled, gooey sci-fi crap. This movie is so bad and so unforgivably long, however, that even her relatively shining performance has a hard time rising above the slop in which it is mired.
