By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 24 2014
Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
This is the weakest of the Mimic movies. A young man (23ish) is living the life of a bubble boy. Surviving Strickler's disease has left him with respiratory problems. To bide his time he takes pictures of the neighbors in the building across the way. His younger sister helps him with his hobby. But then a young boy disappears.
As the guy becomes more and more obsessed with the neighbors he sees a possible murder. He doesn't realize that the Judas Breed is behind it, but he does get the police involved. Things quickly build an it becomes obvious that the big bugs are back.
I am not sure of the ending in this one. It is a little vague. If one character was right, then the Judas has already won and humans will be wiped out. It also seemed like there was something missing from the film. Something that would explain what was going on with the birds.
Much different from either of the first two and worth seeing once but probably not more.

The lack of money shows especially on the 'street scenes'. They're always in the same spot in the middle of the 2 or 3 buildings where all the characters live, in 'the rear window' style. This is OK given the plot's nature, the problem is there are almost no extras and no sound effects of city life either, it's like a post-apocalyptic movie where half the population are dead. The main character's room is under-produced too.
Otherwise it's quite entertaining. Strangely, the movie succeeds to hold your interest during the more subdued first and second act, but falls apart in the last act, when all the action and special effects start kicking in. I think this part was ackwardly edited and isn't very effective.
The dvd has a good widescreen anamorphic transfer, and the cast's audition tapes make a curious extra.

The first MIMIC was a strong horror film, but the series gets progressively cheaper & worse with every entry.
MIMI 3 open with an establishing shot of the New Jersey shore overlooking Manhattan. Seems the story takes place in a New Jersey city, but once we see the depressing building courtyard, I immediately thought, "Hey, New Jersey looks like Eastern Europe." And sure enough, the end credits reveal the film was shot in Bucharest, Romanina.
That's okay, except that it LOOKS like Eastern Europe, not New Jersey.
The story is very "small." Everything occurs in one apartment and the couryard it overlooks. (Yeah, we also see people in the other windows.) Only a few actors, and a couple of Judas Priest bugs. I suppose some find the film "claustrophobic" or "grungy" but I just found it small and cheap.
The whole film is an hour and 12 minutes long. That's a movie? (Claims to be 76 minutes, but four minutes are end credits).
The story is a REAR WINDOW ripoff, except that MIMIC 3 acknowledges it. The sickly character (who can't leave his room) says, "I saw the movie," implicitly refering to REAR WINDOW. Essentially, the sickly character sees Judas Priest bugs killing people in the courtyard, but at first no one believes him. In the end, the bugs come to his apartment, and there's some more violence.
No-name actors, aside from supporting roles for Lance Henricksen and Amanda Plummer, who probably each shot their scenes in a couple of days.
I don't see how anyone can understand this film unless they've first seen MIMIC, since the back story isn't much explained. Newcomers to the MIMIC series may wonder where all those giant bugs came from.
