before bounty hunter Charlie (Don Keith
Opper) triggers his gun to destroy the
last two Critter-eggs, he gets a message
from Ug (Terrence Mann) that it would be
illegal to extinguish the race from the
He is sent in space with a transporter
with the eggs in a deep sleep and awakens
53 deep-frozen years later in a ship with
a half dozen of people in a private
wreckage heading to Earth as they never
have discovered their own home planet.
Unfortuantely the eggs have hatched and
the Crites are on the loose laying more
eggs and planning to take over the ship
as well as feasting on anyone there.
At first the crew of the ship thinks that
Charlie is a suspect after their crazed
captain named Rick (Anders Hove) was
killed but then they experience these
creatures killing another one of their
crew member as well so they plan to snuff
them out before they are next.
A nice beginning where the last
sequel left off with Charlie McFadden looking around the suite for Crites and
was nicely touched with a computer effect
showing Ug's image
appearing talking to him about his next
A good shot of outerspace along with a
futuristic group of people performed by
the rest of the main cast socialising and
arguing about stuff as well as having
difficulty commanding the ship.
A nice shot on Fran showering while Rick shows pleasant expressions making out for
him to join her and then throws a nice
sucker punch and looking aggressive too.
There's a good discussion scene between Ethan and Rick alone
together with him acting crazy
with his actions and then a good shot on
him swinging a fire extinguisher at Ethan's head.
Funny but gruesome looking shot of a
baby Crite charging into Rick's mouth.
Good and panicky discussion between Charlie and Ethan when they
are stuck in a trash compartment trying
to get out.
Nice shot on two Crites leaping on Bernie with him spinning around crying
Bottom line is that this back to back
sequel was an improvement yet it takes
almost forever for the Crites to come and
wreck terror and havoc. This flick can easily be considered an Alien
clone as it had similar elements to it as
the people in the future are aboard a
ship with some alien creatures stalking
around and they plan to blow it up.
However, they do add some different
elements too like an avil bounty hunter
climbing on board and other stuff like
that. Let's hope this film will be the last one
though as the story became terribly trite
The acting is
powerfully good with a great experiences
cast involved. Don Keith Opper (Charlie McFadden) made up for his
performance and knew how to act energetic
and nutty as ever.
Teenage actor Paul Whitthorne (Ethan) is
dynamic with his energy as well as the
youngest crew member on the ship and
could have had a promising acting career. Does well with his
nervous frustrations trying to control an
elevator in the ship. He also does well by screeching
towards someone telling him that
he is not his father when he tries to
hunt a Crite down.
Angela Bassett (Fran) pulled her weight
perfectly and portrayed her role well by
being tough when she needed to be.
Anders Hove (Rick) was perfect playing an
arrogant and crazy captain of the ship. He looked great by trying to blast
open a stowaway crater with a laser gun
expressing some anger there.
Brad Dourif (Al Bert) does well when he tries
to call for another cast member and warns
him that some Crites are coming towards
his way and he acts ignorant about it not
taking him seriously and scooping up some
pills he spilt.
Terrence Mann (Counsellor Tetra / Ug) was different with his
character this time turning evil and
seems to portray that part alot better. He appeared very well after
aboarding the ship and acting evil
towards everyone with his screaming and
being demanding to find the eggs of the
Crites. He did well by striking a cast member as well.
There's a butt
shot on Angela Bassett while
taking a shower.
is alot better and fits with the story by
Peter Manning Robinson and I can
tell you that he doesn't sound at all
cheap with his composing.
Ethan: I guess
Rick's had a little too much coffee
Al Bert: Rick has got a bug up his
butt. See. He's gone and discovered
himself a magnetic space anomaly. And
he's gotten stiff in the jock.
Al Bert: Eh, Captain asshole.
Congratulations, Charlie, you have just
murdered the ship.
Charlie: You an
Ethan: No, do I look like one?
Al Bert: Rick and
Bernie are dead. For all I know we may
have been infected by some alien germ. So
unless anyone else has another
suggestion, I propose that we just hole
up here and wait for them to come rescue
us. They will be here any minute.
Ethan: Yeah. If we don't blow up
