Plot Outline:

Twenty years after sending a message into space, a response is given. With instructions on how to combine alien DNA with our own, scientists give birth to Sil - a beautiful, yet deadly alien hybrid. When she escapes, she only has one thing on her mind: mating and it's up to a team of scientists and mercenaries to stop her before she can reproduce. -- Chris Kavan

An amazing cast considering that this is just a sub-par creature feature and an excuse to show Natasha Henstridge in the nip as often as possible. Mildly entertaining but incredibly flimsy stuff.

A well casted sci-fi horror that doesn't really make an impact. The action scenes were descent. I remember not really enjoying that much and that Natsha Henstridge physical attributes were more utilized than the overall production. Species has a good premise, if only the other facets of the film were memorable.

This original is a fun sci-fi romp with Natasha Henstridge in her signature sexy alien hybrid role. The sequels can't live up to this original, which manages to make a decent entry into the sci-fi/horror genre.

It's not a bad movie, just a bad genre.

Solid Science Fiction Fun

Species is certainly a B movie yet it has an excellent and recognizable cast of very skilled actors. In fact it might be shocking to find names such as Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina and Forest Whitaker among the films stars. The basic concept of the film is simple - Two decades ago scientists sent a message into space and this is there reply. This also happens to be the films tagline. One such reply includes detailed information on how to splice Alien DNA with our own. The government, as incompetent as ever, decides it wise to proceed and experiments with combining the extraterrestrial DNA with our own. Eventually, realizing the risks this presents, they decide it best to terminate the project. Of course not all goes to plan and Sil manages to escape into the chaos of Los Angeles.
