THE PLOT:

The third and final (at least so far) installment of the Mimic series has a young boy whose medical condition prevents him from leaving his crappy and cramped apartment, so he spends his time taking people of the neighborhood. But when he accidentally witnesses a murdered committed by a new wave of Judas Bugs, and somehow connected to a strange man in his building called the Garbageman because he's always carrying garbage bags.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This has got to be the worst of the series so far, it's not horrible by any means, but it's slow, they spend way too much time people watching and you see very little of the Judas bugs. I mean, hello, it's the third movie, we know what they look like by now, no need for the suspense, duh! 4 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this one, the story was just dull and uninteresting, besides the whole people watching bit which got old really fast, the other thing was he was complaining through a good chunk of the film, "Oh why me! Why couldn't I play outside like the rest of the children." Plus I don't recall if they ever said what was wrong with him that he could leave, it looked like asthma which is treatable in the bloody 21st century with little thing called an INHALER! 2 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a good job with what they were given.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (what little there was is pretty cool.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- PEOPLE WATCHING (All the people watching padded the film and at a mere 76 minutes, that's a bad thing.)
- WHY ME! (Oh the Why me complaining.)
- WHAT'S THE ILLNESS (What the heck was wrong with that guy.)
- CREATURE TIME (The creatures had very little camera time, considering it was the third movie, they had no reason to do it.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of the first two movies, then you won't like this one, in fact, there's no certainty you'll like this one.)
