My Thoughts:
I felt like watching the sequel... but before doing so I wanted to re-watch the original film as it has been a good 3 or 4 years since I seen it last and really didn't remember too much about it. Only really remembered that I enjoyed it. Sure... this movie wasn't perfect... but what it was... it was a whole lot of fun and it looked awesome! And I think that is what I liked the most about this movie. While I did like the story... the effects were just great and a whole lot of fun to watch. It is funny... when it comes to Nicholas Cage... I either like him in something or I just hate him. I don't know why. When I first heard he was doing this I thought well there goes any chance of this movie being any good. But I was really wrong... I found I liked him a lot in this role. I also really enjoyed Sam Elliot in his role.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
This is your average bodysnatcher movie. Not my favorite kind of movie. Also the direction and acting is below average. Special effects are okay for a direct-to-DVD movie. But I really was bothered by the action scenes outside the building. They had only a few small covers where the soldier hide behind and are managing to keep thousands of bugs at bay while having idle conversations. This is just poor direction.
The story is very unoriginal, but if you like bodysnatcher movies, this one is watchable.

Instead of watching the (at the time) unaired pilot with a different crew, or watching the first episode ever aired, I decided to watch the episode which is the second pilot after the crew has been recast with the now familiar crew. Even though this episode is the third episode aired.
This episode has the crew still wearing the uniforms from the first pilot instead of the familiar gold, red and blue uniforms. Also McCoy is still missing. Instead we got another doctor.
I enjoyed this episode. It already shows the potential of the series.
