Painfully bad

This is a bad movie. Like all of the sequels to the first movie. The effects were all computer generated except for the species suit that I have got bored of. They dragged out all of the scenes far more than they ever should have. I have nothing to write. There was no imagination in the film and so I have no imagination to write a review. Another painfully bad entry into the Species series that offers nothing new or good. My favourite bit was the flying nun.

What Were They Thinking?

I really don't like giving moves such low ratings. It makes me feel...dirty, after all, I am a scriptwriter and hope to get one of my movies made into a film someday. Still, the reason I gave Species IV at least a 4 was for the cinematography and makeup. Ben Cross was okay, as usual, just out of his element in this film. Otherwise, the movie was nothing more than H.R. Giger Meets Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion.

The flick started off well, too, before it turned into Caligula. Then, it was cliché after cliché, unnecessary nude scene after nude scene. I get it. Fanboys enjoy naked chicks in oil, but it does not for a good story make. Anyway, it is what it is. The Species franchise ended on a low point. That's okay, though. With the continued proliferation of recycling old horror films these days, a reboot can be foreseen.

boring

Miranda (Helena Mattsson) is an university professor. She lives with her only family, uncle Tom Hollander (Ben Cross). Miranda is found unconscious and naked in the park. She is taken to the hospital where she transforms into an alien hybrid and kills several people. Tom arrives to find Miranda unconscious and goes on the run with her. He reveals the truth of her origins. They travel to Mexico in search of his former research partner Forbes McGuire (Dominic Keating) who helped create Miranda from combining human and alien DNA.

This is the fourth movie of the franchise and a TV B-movie at heart. The horror and thriller aspect is only a shadow of the original. Mattsson is statuesque with sufficient acting skills. Ben Cross can't do much with this material. There seems to be alien DNA everywhere which devalues Miranda's singular potential for danger. There are long stretches where the film flatlines. This is not that good even considering its limited aspirations.
