This electrifying thriller features sexy Academy Award(R)-winner Mira Sorvino (ROMY AND MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION) and screen favorite Charles S. Dutton (A TIME TO KILL, ALIEN 3). A team of scientists discover a miracle cure that stops the spread of a deadly disease ... only to find three years later that something has gone terribly wrong! Their creation has taken on a horrifying life of its own ... able to mimic and destroy its every predator -- even man! And now, it threatens to wipe out an entire city ... unless they stop it in time! A stylish, acclaimed hit featuring riveting performances from a superb cast, MIMIC delivers heart-pounding thrills that never let up!
An ultracreepy blend of horror and fantasy (think of it as Beauty and the Bugs) from Mexican director Guillermo del Toro (Cronos) about giant cockroaches in the subway tunnels beneath Manhattan. Like its DNA-altered spawn (the title refers to the way some insects evolve to resemble their predators), Mimic is not your everyday bug picture, but a more poetic (though quite gruesome) sort of film, literally crawling with bizarre, striking images. In this case, the mutant bugs are not the result of evil atomic experiments (as in Them!), but are the unexpected side effect of work done by an entomologist (Mira Sorvino) and her Center for Disease Control officer husband (Jeremy Northam), who, in a last-ditch effort to control a roach-carried disease epidemic that was killing children, released a genetically altered form of sterile cockroaches beneath the city. They stopped the virus, but... Also starring Charles Dutton, Giancarlo Giannini, F. Murray Abraham, and Josh Brolin. --Jim Emerson

This dark visual masterpiece looks terrific in 1080p! The detail in the image is impressive for the age of this movie. And the 7.1 DTS sound is outstanding! Just glad to see Lionsgate take the money and time to release this little film on the blu ray format. It is long overdue! And it was well worth the wait.
This director's cut isn't a new version by any means. It just has a few added segments and extended scenes. It doesn't really change the story or flow of the film by any means. But the few changes are good add ins.
Another impressive aspect is the ten dollar price tag Amazon is charging. With a price like this, what are you waiting for? Grab a copy and turn out the lights and crank up the surround sound, because this is a good ole monster movie that is really exciting!
An old relic of an abandoned church? or where ever the insides lead to.
To me the very high light was of the child with the clicking spoons and his mistaken idea that he had found a friend.
Sorvino was a pretty, conscientious leading lady played as a sympathetic
character that became better as the movie progressed. Why would they used human DNA in the mixed genetics of their bug?
Is there really so many sub-tunnels under New York? that they built over the existing ones. Other than that the mimicing roaches needed to be near a food supply [humans] there were lots of room to hide.
How come they didn't attack that group of weird ones the two boys passed in the tunnels.
Charles S. Dutton is a favorite character to look for and enjoying his performance. Recognized Josh Brolin - too bad his character met his end.
Who, Who played the 6 foot tall roach. Person or artistic work - gruesome blend of parts to make a face.
Old buildings and underground tunnels have always fascinated me - especially how they came to be. Any other spooks around? By the way how does one male get all those females - seems like they would have been protecting him. Loved the way Sorvino psyched it out. Smart cookie.
The way it ended was so very touching and unexpected - have watched it 2 or 3 times already - probably again in another 6 months.
Definitely not for youngsters - but is of great entertainment value.
