Product description

Product Description

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.

Format: DVD
Imagine Alfred Hitchcock's "Read Window"... but instead of a murderer in the other apartments, there's a giant shape-shifting human-sized bug.

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.

The 'Judas breed' returns for this third movie, an effective re-working of Donald A. Wollheim's 1942 short story, MIMIC. New writer-director J.T. Petty assembles a mainly young cast for this drama of urban horror as giant insects, capable of human disguise, stalk and kill the residents of a grungy housing estate. Housebound by his severe allergies, 24-year-old Marvin (Karl Geary) makes a hobby of voyeurism, watching and photographing his neighbours, so he's the first to suspect that a spate of mysterious disappearances are really horrific murders.

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!

Hey, I've had Mimic 3 Sentinel sitting on my shelf for 12 months or more now, as part of a 3 movie Blu-Ray collection. After watching the first and second instalments I wasn't sure that I would ever get to see part 3. But I was pleasantly surprised by this one - yes, it's a shameless rip-off of Rear Window but it's obvious that this is what the creators were going for. You have to feel for the lead actors character who is trapped in his home but spends his life watching and photographing his neighbours in a low-rent (and uncared for) part of American suburbia. The threat builds gradually and enough of the creatures are revealed so you are not left guessing. Nicely acted but very short. Worthwhile getting this on Blu-Ray for the nice DTS-MA 5.1 treatment with good rear channel effects.

The original "Mimic" was a strong horror-thriller with a fine B-list cast. "Mimic 2" was a poor follow-up that made little sense. "Mimic 3" is just awful. Why they entrusted this to a student filmaker is beyond me (probably because he was cheap). The acting is uniformly amateur. Special mention must go to the actress who plays the sister, giggling when she finds a corpse (although this may be the writer/director's fault). Amanda Plummer, who plays the mother, must be thinking about sacking her agent. Lance Henriksen is as good as ever, but has he learned nothing about horror sequels - Hellraiser 8, Pumpkinhead 4, anything with the word "Alien" in the title? Why does the reviewer Stuart Vernon say "There wasn't all that much in here that was really all that good" and then give it 4 stars?! The original was only worth 3! Do not waste your money on this. If you do, you'll only wonder why I didn't tell you how bad it really is. Breaking news in 2012 - there has never been a "Mimic 4".

If you enjoyed mimic 1 and 2 you may be tempted to explore mimic 3, ..... this is not a good move. It drags its way through the first 3/4 then remembers its supposed to be scary and tries to cram it into the end ... and runs out of time you keep watching it expecting it to pick up but it dose not . Your kind of relieved when everyone gets killed - as you will not care what happens to any of the characters...by the end you'll just want it to be over !
