Species III Review: Don’t let the other critics fool you, Species III is a pretty entertaining entry into the species series, true it was to direct to video, but with MGM backing up this installment with Brad Turner taking the helm, you knew it be pretty good. Natasha Henstridge briefly reprises her role as “Eve” to the Species series and gives birth to another alien Sara, who is the latest genetic alien. This time around though we got an excellent sidestory about the halfbreeds, half human, half alien freaks who don’t bother in either class and die out from disease. Well a couple of more dangerous new half breeders come out to seek Sara in hopes of using her eggs to breed a new race.
In Species III, the acting is pretty good, the movie has some impressive effects and the movie like the other two sequels is very scary and gory. The Special Edition DVD comes with four great featurettes, which includes interviews with the cast and crew including the beautiful Natasha Henstridge, commentary and a look back into why the Species series has been so successful. Looking at the list of complaints the only reason that some people seem to dislike is because is because Henstridge isn’t in that much, newsflash people. Natasha’s role was basically a cameo appearance.
Its also funny how people bash the Sara character yet in comparison there is no difference between Eve, Sil and Sara other than the age differences. All three characters in Species seduce and kill their human hosts and unleash violence and chaos wherever they go. Overall, Species III is an excellent film.
