As If 2 Species Films Weren’t Enough...
Let's just skip the part about how unnecessary a third Species film is and focus on the film itself. Much like the films predecessor, Species 3 makes very little actual sense should one ever take the time to think about it. Actually, it so plainly lacks logic of any kind that you don't even have to stop and think about it to realize how absurd most of this film is.
The film starts off immediately following the events of Species 2. As it turns out Eve was only unconscious and not dead, as we had been led to believe. Unfortunately for Natasha it would appear when she signed on for the first Species in 1995 she agree to a trilogy of films. She bought a quick ticket out of this one though as Eve dies after giving birth and a doctor on the scene decides to kidnap the child for his own purposes. His purposes you ask - winning the Nobel by creating a perfect strand of DNA. This child, in typical Species fashion, grows up to be an attractive blonde in her mid 20's. Sara, our human/alien hybrid, is portrayed by Sunny Mabrey who I assume does a nice job in the role. Nice job = she is attractive. Her wikipedia page suggests she is most well known for her part as a blonde stewardess in “Snakes on a Plane”.
Back to the film at hand however… This scientist, Dr Abbot, eventually recruits Dean, a student in need of a break, to assist him on the project of developing the perfect DNA. We soon learn however that there is a race of half-breeds with their bodies dying and decaying from weak immune systems. As a result all Half Breeds want to impregnate Sara in hopes to create... O i'm not really sure. How a race of half-breeds developed in the first place I’m not entirely certain. It's also possible not all Half-Breeds wanted to impregnate Sara and I just made that up... The basics of the story is they want Dr. Abbot and Dean to create the perfect species using Sara’s DNA to ensure their survival.
Things finally start to pick up when Amelia, the conveniently attractive female leader of the half-breeds, teams with Sara and demands that Dean create for them the perfect species. This all leads up to what is an actually a pretty entertaining conclusion to the film. Of course a lot of the logic remains unexplained and a few character motives are uncertain but it succeeds in creating excitement. All in all though there really aren't a whole many redeeming qualities to this film.
Species 3 for many portions is long on talk and short on explosive action. While the film may lack some of the energy of Species 2 though there is clearly an attempt made at making a quality film. As it were a lot of the films flaws are likely a result of the flawed logic introduced in Species 2 and the lower budget of the film - being a direct-to-DVD release. I’m certain it could have been worse, although it certainly isn’t very good.
