You can smell excessive studio interference on a film from several miles away, and Mimic has that smell about it. It bares many of the hallmarks of Guillermo del Toro’s work, I’ll let him explain what those are: “I have a sort of a fetish for insects, clockwork, monsters, dark places, and unborn things.” Mimic hits all of those boxes, but you can still tell that something got a little lost... read more

Since, ‘Cronos’, Guillermo del Toro’s directing debut, was a critical success, he got his ticket for Hollywood and made there his sophomore directing effort. Unfortunately, the whole thing turned out to be a disaster and, eventually del Toro disowned the film after constant clashes with his producer, Bob Weinstein.

" Monster movie directed by the great Mexican Guillermo del Toro who did his American directorial debut with this movie. It has some interesting ideas, but there is not much that remind me of the colorful and inventive fantasies that usually come from him.
