Mimic

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

" 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. A lot of tinkering with this movie from annoying producers was a huge reason for it being a failure and the director himself has disowned it. But, even if del Toro had all the money and back-up in the world he has to admit that the biggest prob"
