It's basically Read Window with giant bugs.
Michael J. Tresca
While it's absolutely no mystery that the plot of this film borrows more than a little from Alfred Hitchkock's REAR WINDOW, the film really works.
C. Law
If you like this moronic film do yourself a favor go get your head checked out.

When you rent a Dimension straight to video project, you never know what you're going to get. Sometimes you'll find a rare gem but most of the time it won't even be worth remembering. Remember all those PROPHECY sequels? That's what I thought. Anyway, I'm happy to say that MIMIC SENTINEL falls into the rare gem category. I had absolutely no idea what to expect with this one nor do I know why I even rented it after hating MIMIC 2 so much and the fact that I'm not even that big of a fan of the original. But I'm glad I did.
It goes something like this. Strickland disease (which was established in the first film) survivor Martin (Karl Geary) suffers from extreme environmental sensitivity making it hard for him to leave his room in the apartment he shares with his mother (Amanda Plummer) and his sister, Rosy (Alexis Dziena). So, he obsessively takes photographs of the world outside his window and, as you might have guessed, eventually learns that the Judas Bugs are back once again. While it's absolutely no mystery that the plot of this film borrows more than a little from Alfred Hitchkock's REAR WINDOW, the film really works. While I've always found the MIMIC bugs rather creepy, this film seemed to really capitalize on that and make a genuinely scary, suspense building movie out of them.
Rookie filmmaker and screenwriter (he also wrote and directed the as of yet unreleased indie SOFT FOR DIGGING) J.T. Petty has what it takes to tell a good story and make an entertaining film. Instead of trying to make a crappy film that requires more money than he had to work with, Petty made a good, small film that was within his means.

I've never been a big fan of the mimic series. The premise, bugs that have evolved to imitate humans, is intriguing, but I never thought it was realized in a compelling way.
This movie however, brings some interesting elements to the otherwise lackluster series. Karl Geary plays a homebound man, Marvin, afflicted with the remnants of the same disease that the bugs were created to destroy. From his room in his mother's apartment, he photographs his neighbors and lives, through them, the life he cannot otherwise live.
Then he and his sister (Alexis Dziena) spy what they believe is a murder, in classic Rear Window fashion, but the police don't believe them. Most of this short (76 minutes) movie is spent staring through the lense of the still camera, through which Marvin views the world, with a sudden, violent climax, in which horror movie favorite, Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Alien 3) plays a small part.
Lots of good cinematography here and some very interesting tributes to Hitchcock, as well as a startlingly disturbing scene involving Marvin and a refrigerator overcome the otherwise poor production values and out-of-date CGI that mar this movie.
Definitely worth a look, for anyone looking for a quick little diversion and some new twists to the B-Horror genre.

Despite all the bad reviews of this movie I have read, I actually found it to be a pretty good film. I mean, in some parts it may have been slightly lethargic, but over all, I found it to be a good film. The actors all did a very good job--they all have a lot of talent. I actually bought the film before I had even seen it, because my favourite actress played Carmen. I had heard bad reviews of the film, but I have never been one to rely on other people's judgement of films, because I usually enjoy films that get bad reviews. I guess you just have to be the right kind of person, because a great deal of the film does revolve around Marvin looking through his camera and taking pictures. If you haven't seen it, you should probably not buy it until you have, because like I said, you may have to be the type of person who enjoys most films as a whole. I guess it takes a real appreciation of the art.

This is the third entry in the Mimic series; this time a shut-in and his hoochie sister have a run-in with the giant cockroaches. The movie starts off slow, maybe too slow in my opinion, but Mimic 3 gets real good at the end. The whole picture has this grungy look, contrasting the main character's immediate surroundings and lifestyle.

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.

Unfortunately, "Mimic 3" doesn't QUITE work out.
