Having seen “Mimic” a couple of months back (Netflix) I thought this tight editing job was a substantial improvement. From being a marginally interesting but slightly cringe-inducing derivative genre pic this became quite a good addition to my bug-hunt library. It has a much better flow now and keeps the story moving forwards. Plus it kept my wife entertained (and scared) without driving her off to watch a chick-flick in another room, and it has that funny, cleverly assembled, “alternate ending”, which has to be worth half a star right there! No need to ever watch the original again. So let’s say 7.5 / 10. Well done TMBTM for a thoroughly professional facelift of what would otherwise be at best a 5 / 10 movie experience.
