1.0 out of 5 stars Okay....It was kind of stupid March 4 2003
I really like the first Mimic movie. When I seen there was a sequel I was interested in seeing where the movie makers would take the story next. Yet, this was pretty ridiculous.
A minor character from the first movie returns as a hip, cool teacher in the Bronx. Her love life sucks and she has more respect and admiration for bugs then she does for men. She also has a tendency to date some really horrible characters. Well she is definitely in for a suprise because her next date is guaranteed to be worse. Apparently, a bug from the Judus experiment is loose in the school where she works and it has taken a liken to the bug lady. It has choosen this lucky girl to be the mother of his larva (or larvae...whatever!) With the help of a cop who is hot on the scent! They attempt to defeat the mimic.
Now seriously....the problem I had with this movie was it didn't explain itself like the first Mimic. In this techno-science age it was plausible (almost) to believe that a mutant bug could be created that would have the ability to mimic human beings, their greatest predator. There was some believablity there, but this movie doesn't even explain why a bug would suddenly decide that a human woman is the perfect host for his children. I was left wondering at the end of the film what was really going on with the bug. Then they took it to the next level at the end and attempted to portray that the bug actually had some kind of affection for the lady in question. It was just too implausible.
Overall...the film was horrible. It doesn't suprise me that the flick went straight to video.

Five years after the success of original "Mimic," Demention Films brought back again the same bug-monster, but with a different cast. In place of Mira Sorvino, who played the main character of entomologist Susan Tyler, Alix Kromozay re-appears as Remi, who briefly showed up as Susan's assistant. If you remember her role in the original, you have a terrific memory.
The story is basically the same. Remi is now working at a school, teaching kids about the insects she seems to love more than humans, especially annoying guys, who literally keep on bugging poor Remi after her unfortunate dates with them. Thus the sequel streches Remi's character, who actually vanishes in the second half of the original, but showed a glimpse of promising touch of more lively characterization.
But I never dreamed that they stretch the premise that much! Yes, Remi was unlucky in love five years ago, and took a picture of her own face after being treated badly by men. But now it seems she collected many, many relics of her failed dates (see her closet full of photoes), and she is about to experience the most awful date with a bug, a big deadly bug, which apparently has became a stalker like a human.
The sequel would not look ridiculous if you ignore the logic of the monster which literally keeps on bugging the leading lady. There are some creepy moments (like a body dragged virtically upward) but the real surprise is the lead Alix Kromzay. Her acting as Remy shows, despite its silly premises and diaglogue, enough strong power to carry the whole show to the end, with unexpected wry humor and even sexiness.
Though the film displays the good use of lighting and rain, its ending part looks too outrageous -- it is suggested that the bug-monster is trying to adore her and ... make love (no way!

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick with the original... May 1 2002
By trebe
The original Mimic was an exciting and enjoyable bug movie. There were a few problems with the concept, but the movie was suspenseful and exciting. The low-budget sequel, Mimic 2 really adds nothing and shows how good the original was. Recycling is plainly evident when the cover of the Mimic 2 DVD is actually taken from the original Mimic movie poster.
The second time around, the element of surprise is gone, and it's much harder to create any suspense. The movie centers on Remi Panos, a minor character from the first movie, where she was an assistant to the Mira Sorvino character. The same actress, Alix Koromzay reprises her role from the first movie, but her appearance between the two films is so different, that it was difficult to recognize her as the same person. Minus the frizzy hair, and the jewelry in her previously pierced nose, Remi is a now a science teacher who still gets around town on a bicycle. Repeating a scene from the first movie, she once again bumps into the creature with her bike in an alley (Yes that was her). She also continues the odd practice of taking Poloroids of her face.
Men seem to be a problem for Remi, and more so, as various men in her life start to turn up dead, with their faces disfigured. A local cop named Klaski (Bruno Campos), begins an investigation, and finds that the Feds are poking around too. This time there is just one "Judas breed" roach on the loose (the budget you know), and he has nested in Remi's school, apparently to be close to her. Mr. Roach makes his move, trapping Remi in the school with two boys. Klaski shows up at the school to attempt a rescue. While the Feds lead by an agent identified only as "Darksuit" (Edward Albert), impotently stand around outside the school, unwilling to confront the roach.
