I haven't actually gotten the box set yet so my star rating is
arbitrary, but in response to the question of which versions are
in the box, the answers are Species:SE and Species III:Unrated
according to MGM's website.

STOP! If the title of this review sounds bad, stop reading and find a serious movie. However, if science running amok, aliens and eye candy sound like fun read on. Species is a three movie set with a filler DVD of maybes. H.R. Giger did the design of the alien and the special effects while not great by today's standards are very good.

The first move, SPECIES is the best of the group. The cast is excellent actors, all being second leads or the starts buddy. Michael Madsen, a great tuff guy actor, is the government fixer. Forest Whitaker, one of America's best actors, is the empathy. Ben Kingsley, always an excellent performance, feeds Madsen some great one-liners. Natasha Henstridge provides the eye candy as the alien driven to reproduce. For the type of film, this is a five-star movie and great fun.

SPECIES II was released three years later, with Michael Madsen, Marg Helgenberger and Natasha Henstridge, repeating their roles from the first film. The producers continued to cast top quality actors in almost all the roles. The story is a continuation of the first movie with a couple of new twists. The dialog starts to slip and gore is used as a substitute. The special effects are above average, with the ending making the movie. This is a three or four-star film depending on how much you liked the first film.

SPECIES III was released nine years after the first film. While providing a continuation of and ending to the story, the film is a cheap knock off production. The producers stopped using quality character actors and went with inexpensive. The dialog drops badly and the story line has real problems with reality. However, they do answer questions raised in Species II and that makes it worth watching.

This set comes in a flimsy slipcase with nice artwork and contains four standard-size Amaray DVD cases. The discs I received were shoddily made and sloppily handled. Two of them were riddled with fingerprints and one (Species II) had multiple scratches. Back they went, and the replacement set fared minimally better: though unscratched, one disc (Species II, again) had smudges and two others had cloudy swirls between the polycarbonate layers. Though playback may not be affected, these flaws aren't acceptable.

As for the films, they vary in quality:

Species: Engaging, suspenseful film with top-notch special effects. The 2.35:1 picture is sharp, with solid blacks and very good contrast. The extras are largely forgettable.

Species II: Inferior to its forerunner in every way.

Species III: Enjoyable for the most part, decent story line, crisp picture. There are some nicely shot nude scenes, especially the one with brunette hottie Amelia Cooke sauntering down a hallway in her birthday suit.

Species IV: This final release has a razor-sharp 1.78:1 picture but little else to offer: hardly any action and scant nudity. Nevertheless, it manages to be mildly entertaining, mostly because of Helena Mattson's and Marlene Favela's solid acting and good looks.

In sum, this set is worthwhile only for the sci-fi completist who can get it at a bargain price from a seller with a good return policy (like Amazon), should the discs arrive marred. For everyone else, only Species I and III are worth watching, making this four-movie collection superfluous.

I'm a true Sci-Fi Fan & my collection would not be complete without this set. natasha henstridge is great & I was suprized to see michelle williams as the young Sil in the first Species. I Had one & two in one set & 3 & 4 separately, Then when I got this set with them all together in there very own cases I was VERY HAPPY. I Gave my sister my other set, Cause I like it when they are in singles, It makes my Collection look Larger. I'm Glad to have this set. I Love it.

The first movie was the only one worth watching I would not recommend buying the other two they were really stupid, I couldn't even finish them and I really tried to make myself but I couldn't stand it. So I would suggest just finding the first movie it's an interesting alien movie with only a couple annoying things (all of which I could over look). Forrest Whitaker is great in this - his character is my favorite. Some good acting and a good story.

I got this four disc collection at Kmart, $16.00. All disc's were in perfect condition. The original episode is definitely the best, but isn't that how it usually goes. However, I still found 2, 3 and 4 entertaining. The storylines are basically the same, with slightly different scenario's. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a movie, for me, these are kickback and enjoy, without to pay to much attention. The ladies are grade A eye candy, nice looking, great bodies, and nicely breasted. I enjoy a movie with naked ladies, and there is just enough nudity to keep one interested, without it being overdone. Sometime's it's nice to get a movie that you don't have to analyse ever part of it to enjoy it. Easy watching, I'm glad I bought it.
