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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Producer Frank Mancuso Jr. wanted the creatures to look slightly different from H.R. Giger's original concept. He did not contribute to the designs in this film and the creatures were redesigned by Rob Hinderstein. See more »

Goofs

The doctor refers to Sara as being 3rd generation of the alien species but she's not, she's 2nd generation. Eve was created at the same time as Sil but her embryo was cryogenically frozen, Sara is Eve's offspring so that makes her 2nd generation. See more »

Quotes

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 ...

tired species
26 February 2005 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

'Species 3' is a low budget continuation of the 'Species' series, and is not that bad for its category. The story of inter-galactic breeding continues here, some DNA mumble-jumble is being added, and science-fiction fans find here some of their preferred stuff although this is not really best in breed. The real appeal of the series is in the inter-species lover-predator games which provide the pretext for a handsome quantity of nudity on screen, and from this point of view series 3 equals its predecessors. What is lost is the surprise effect of the first film, and the money to make better effects. The director is experienced in TV series and he does what he knows best here. However, what works on the small screen is not enough on the big screen. You cannot leave on big screen, even in a series characters development for the many other tens or hundreds of episodes. Acting is also TV quality. The plot has some logics, embarrassing moments are avoided, but overall it looks like this movie is just a last tentative to squeeze some money from the dying 'Species' brand. 4 out of 10 on my personal scale.
