Cast: Don Keith Opper, Terrence Mann, Paul Whitthorne, Anders Hove, Angela Bassett, Brad Dourif, Eric DaRe, Martine Beswick, Anne Ramsay.
Running Time: 100 minutes
Rated PG-13 for violence, language, and gore.
"Critters 4" starts, somewhere in Kansas and replays the last few minutes of "Critters 3" (1991) as the recurring character of Charlie McFadden (Don Keith Opper) is about to shoot the last two remaining Critter eggs in the universe which, we are informed, would mean the extinction of the entire Critter race which is against some sort of intergalactic zoological law or something like that. Charlie's bounty hunter friend Ug (Terrence Mann) is now known as Counsellor Tetra and is a top ranking official at the intergalactic council and orders Charlie not to shoot the eggs but instead put them into a pod that will land nearby very soon. The pod does indeed land nearby very quickly & Charlie does indeed put the eggs into it but he is also caught in the pod which I presume cryogenic-ally freezes him as it's never really explained. "Critters 4" then informs us that we are 'Somewhere in Saturn Quadrant 2045' where a salvage ship comes across the pod drifting in space. Rick (Anders Hove) decides to claim the unidentified, to them anyway, pod and try to make a bit of cash out of it. With the help of his crew, Ethan (Paul Whitthorne), Fran (Angela Bassett), Al Bert (Brad Dourif) and Bernie (Eric DeRe), the pod is successfully recovered. They get in touch with the intergalactic council and Counsellor Tetra say to go to an abandoned space-station where a trade will be made for the pod and its contents, Tetra also specifically tells Rick not to open the pod.Read more ›
Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Rear nudity ("The" Angela Bassett)
The body count is higher in this installment. There's less humor to be had (not a bad thing). And there's not one but two villains (Rick and Ug/Counselor Tetra). The only false note for me is the belated appearance by Ug, now called Counselor Tetra. At no time do they bother to explain the (seemingly) abrupt change in Ug. This extraneous villain could have been anyone in name only, why a former character who was supposedly a good guy? It was a little late in the game to drop a surprise that only lasted a few seconds. Otherwise, not a bad effort; I had to have it to complete the set. It's not the most inspired series ever made. I like it because of repeated viewings; I've developed a certain fondness for the little critters.
If you're looking for `art' you've taken a wrong turn somewhere, this isn't it.
