The second sequel in the horror franchise begins after the cockroach plague of the first film devastated New York City. It follows Marvin (Karl Geary), a young man whose various respiratory illnesses have forced him to live in a protected plastic encasing. Saddled with being known as the bubble boy as well as with a dysfunctional family, Marvin retreats to his own corner of the world, which is whatever he can see out of his bedroom window. However, when the flesh hungry mutated cockroaches invade the neighbourhood, Marvin must band together with his family to survive.

So goes the plot for "Mimic 3: Sentinel," which tries to mix up the formula by switching to a more murder-mysteryish format. It's an admirable attempt with some decent performances (especially by the lead actor) but it feels strangely like the lost pilot of a "Mimic" TV show, and both the climax and the character development feel pretty rushed.
As a child, Marvin (Karl Geary) was one of the last survivors of a roach-borne disease. Now he has to live in a specially sterilized room in his family's apartment, which he can only briefly leave. So he spends his days photographing his neighbors from afar. His favorite targets are his drug-dabbling sister Rosy (Alexis Dziena), his neighbor Carmen (Rebecca Mader) and a weirdo he calls the Garbageman (Lance Henriksen).
But before long, Marvin realizes that the people he's observing are vanishing. But when he contacts the police, the cop they send is more interested in having sex with Marvin's mom (Amanda Plummer) than in investigating a possible crime. As Marvin, Rosie and Carmen investigate the disappearances, they find that the real culprit is not even human, but a Judas bug...
Director JT Petty is to be commended for breaking with the "Mimic" formula of the first two movies -- and not just a little break, but breaking almost all the way. It takes a lot of guts to reimagine the story of the Judas beetles from an "ordinary" person's perspective, and try to model it after the classic Hitchcock movie "Rear Window." Except without James Stewart, and things definitely do move outside the room.Read more ›
Local cop Dumars (John Kapelos) is far more interesting in romancing Marvin's widowed mother Simone (Amanda Plummer), than tackling street crime, so it's up to Marvin's errant sister Rosy (Alexis Dziena), and his potential girlfriend Carmen (Rebecca Mader), to help investigate the suspicious behaviour of local misfit nicknamed `Garbageman' (the great Lance Henriksen), and it turns out that he's the only one who knows what's really going on in their otherwise quiet neighbourhood...
Paranoia turns into terror when flying monsters emerge from the shadows to maim and slaughter, and the CGI presented here is generally excellent, adding high quality visuals to the suspenseful plot, and enhancing many of the intensely claustrophobic action sequences. A sense of dread pervades the second half of this film's brief yet incident-packed running time, and the climactic encounter with fierce soldier-caste big-bugs!
