    The only thing that distinguishes Species 2 is how awful it is. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    What ensues is a Halloween-style blood bath accompanied by graphic sex scenes. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Though there's some trashy fun to be had in the film's first half, this cynical sequel -- devolves into space junk even faster than the unfortunate Ross. show more
