After reading a lot of negative stuff about this movie, I was a bit dubious about how good it was before viewing. However, I am pleasantly surprised to say that it was great! And totally different from Number 1. Reasons I can say this? 1 - Corny 'vids': There! 2 - Horrific violence: There (And lots more 'eyuk' moments, too 3 - Bug Special FX? Great. Don't listen to reports that the FX have been 'borrowed' from the first movie. This is simply not true. There is a couple of shots, but most are BRAND NEW. 4 - New stuff: Yeah, lots of little 'infiltrator brain bugs', which give the movie a real 'The Thing and The Hidden' feel. 5 - Actors: Competent enough, with some really good roles: Dax; the Sarge; Sahara. The only thing that lets it down slightly is the embarassingly cheesy 'Salute' moments, but, then again, because those moments also happened in the first one, I suppose it almost gets away with it. And it does make you all the more unexpected for the down and dirty, blood-fest final half an hour, with some real shock-horror moments. All in, great stuff. If you loved the first, see it, and you won't be disappointed. Cheers, Allan
