I'm not a fan of men versus monster movies which are mostly full of violence, blood spouting, screaming, and chasing; they disgust me extremely. However I found myself enjoying Mimic. This thriller is more than just a fight against cunning and deadly monsters that terrorize Manhattan from subways. It begins with an effort to contain Strickler's disease where the impact is to create a more terrible enemy instead. Starring a superb cast, including the beautiful Mira Sorvino and amazing Jeremy Northam, Mimic not merely tells about how the heroes trying to save the city, but as they are given the chance to develop their characters -which the result is very well done (watch the interaction between and among characters) -the audience not only see how people run for their lives; but also can witness a drama of life. For example: how the main characters long to have a baby of their own and the amazing talent of a shoe-polisher's child.
This is an exceptional science-fiction about bug, fear, desperation and hope.
