Editorial Reviews

When a cockroach-spread plague threatened to decimate the child population of New York City in the original Mimic, biologist Susan Tyler and her research associates developed a species of "Judas" bugs and introduced them into the environment, where they were to "mimic" the diseased roaches and infiltrate their grubby habitats. The plan worked until the bugs evolved to mimic their next prey.....humans! Just when they were all thought to be dead, the giant cockroaches are back, and this time they've mutated to take on human form!

I saw Mimic in the movie theaters and enjoyed it. The original plot: scientists in the near future genetically engineer bugs to stop an infestation of plague-spreading cockroaches. They called them "Mimics" because they mimicked the behavior of the roaches and were able to infiltrate their nests.

Fast-forward a few years and the Mimics have gotten out of hand. Instead of being sterile, they reproduced. And instead of just being able to mimic bugs, they are now giant-sized beetles that have an outer shell that looks a lot like a guy in an overcoat wearing a hat. In short, the Mimics started hunting us.

There was way too much religious symbolism in the first movie for my tastes (from stigmata to calling the bugs "Judas breed"), but it was a sci fi film that aimed high even if it didn't always hit the mark. Mimic 2, a direct-to-video sequel, aims low and hits its mark anyway.

A minor character from the first film, Remi (Alix Koromzay), comes back as a hard-working redheaded schoolteacher who just wants to settle down with a nice guy in a soundstage-version of New York. She has a tough time though, mostly because she seems to like bugs a little too much and talks about them a lot.

What, you don't remember Remi from the first film? Neither do I. She was part of the CDC though, so we can assume she's fallen on hard times when we see Remi traipsing through the crumbling halls of a soon-to-be-condemned school teaching weird little freaky kids that talk about being insects and killing happy families.

Remi's life is interrupted by a series of killings, all of them involving men who have their faces torn off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alix Koromzay is the real surprise in "Mimic 2" July 9, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Never mind the low expectations; face it, it's a sequel to a not particularly brilliant bug-monster movie, we're not expecting genius here. But what we do get is a very well made action-horror film, some highly effective and inventive camera work, and a neatly done finale. Right there is about twice what I would have expected of a straight-to-video movie with a less than stellar cast.
One member of the cast ought to go stellar here: Mimic 2's real surprise is Alix Koromzay, reprising a role nobody noticed in the first picture. Here, she's solidly in the lead and we're right there with her. Koromzay manages the trick of portraying a character we care about, and root for, without for a minute descending to the typical woman-in-peril hokum of countless other thrillers. She is tough when she has to be, terrified when you'd expect her to be, and pulls this picture out of its B-movie niche. I have not seen Koromzay in a lead role before but she pulls this off with quiet polish and spunk.
Bottom line? Solid little thriller that contains an unexpected but welcome twist: A good performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars BUGGED January 22, 2004
Format:DVD
This sequel to MIMIC is a tense, eerie thriller, with some excellent suspense scenes and an engaging cast. Seems like the bugs from the first movie or at least one of them is back and wants the babies stolen by a treacherous Japanese man. Said man is killed in the first scene and the bug babies are hidden away. Enter Remy (Alix Kolomanzy) from the first movie, who is now a schoolteacher, an entomologist freak who seems to relate better to bugs than men. The poor girl takes polaroids of herself after each subsequent date falls through, and pastes them on a closet door. Meanwhile, seems like her dejected boyfriends are getting offed by this deadly bug, who can now take on more human appearances.
Edward Albert is wasted in a stereotypical governmental agent role; Bruno Campos is fun as the dashing cop, and Will Estes does a nice turn as one of Remy's former students who has the hots for her.
A worthy sequel and the special effects are pretty impressive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mimicking the "Mimic" August 28, 2013
Format:DVD
Even the awesomeness that is Guillermo del Toro cannot resist the most powerful force in Hollywood: the need to make awful sequels.

And so we got a del Toro-less sequel to "Mimic," a movie that was already a Frankenstein's monster of studio interference. It's basically a scaled-down, grimier version of the original movie, but with the added bonus of an annoying teenager AND a soldier bug who is determined to breed... with a human. Yes, it's THAT kind of horror movie.

Dead men are being found with their faces removed, strung up on wires. The only thing that connects these deaths is that they all went on dates with Remy (Alix Koromzay), who has somehow gone from a quirky entomologist to a quirky inner-city schoolteacher who is obsessed with bugs. Detective Klaski (Bruno Campos) doesn't think she did it, though.

Then Klaski and Remy find out that it was actually a mutated Judas Bug that takes on the appearance of its victims. Its goal: to mate with Remy. Hence why he's been murdering any men who show interest in her, and why he traps her (plus Klaski and a couple students) in a deserted high school. At the same time, a secret government agency arrives, planning to kill everything inside the building.

Like most sequels, "Mimic 2" is pretty much a copy of the original -- big spooky human-shaped bug stalks the heroes, who are trying to find a way to kill it -- but with a visibly smaller budget, no name stars and less gore. And of course, it is directed by Jean de Segonzac (who has mostly worked on "Law and Order") as the director.

It also adds an uncomfortably misogynistic undercurrent, since the ONLY female character is ONLY in the movie because of her babymaking potential. She also gets "raped" by an insectile stinger. Ergh.
