  2. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Mimic

    The leads lack chemistry & are unconvincing; spouting some of the worst dialog written as they stumble through a series of non-events only there to necessitate narrative conflict. It doesn't really get interesting until the characters reach the sewers & the wider ensemble takes precedence, but even this is undermined by an implausible 3rd act. Even in its reconstructed form, the scars of studio interference run deep.

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Mimic

    The Del Toro film that even Del Toro himself has conflicted feelings about, but not lacking at all in his craft. It's easy to say that this was simply a career move, or a way of lending his look and lapsed-Catholic-horror-buff atmosphere to a Hollywood project that would otherwise be negligible. But that look and atmosphere work, and I had more fun with it than Crimson Peak, which felt like he had the utmost control.

    C'est terriblement efficace et d'un suspens des plus intéressants... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Mimic

    Monster movie has interesting ideas, but there is not much that remind me of the inventiveness that usually come from Guillermo del Toro. A lot of tinkering from producers was a huge reason for it and the director 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 problem with the film is that it is another "people running in dark corridors"- film.

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Mimic

    Mimic is dually del Toro's creepiest film and his most commercial. More in the realm of standard horror than his other work-- it aims to scare, not so much to dramatically emote-- the character relationships are secondary. That would be fine, but its horror-action is sunk some of the time with bad situational/humor dialogue. Del Toro is best when he wears his heart on his sleeve, yet Mimic has it leashed.

  9. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Mimic

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Mimic

    This is a decent horror film that has a lot of potential. It would be great to see a director's cut of this film.

  11. HKFanatic's rating of the film Mimic

    Joins the short list of flawed but interesting films from otherwise talented filmmakers that aren't made any better by their long-delayed director's cuts (see also: Clive Barker's "Nightbreed"). The visual aesthetics here are superlative, but the script mashes together ideas from "Alien" and Cronenberg's "The Fly," only without the compelling characters or emotional stakes. Catholic imagery will only get you so far.

  12. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Mimic

    A film I enjoyed greatly for its cool effects and atmospheric urban underbelly. It's definitely good for a watch.

  13. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Mimic

  14. el.'s rating of the film Mimic

    How very awful. And me liking bugs didn't help much.

  15. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Mimic

    It feels over-processed and compromised, which is utterly unlike the individualistic overall design of other Del Toro works. It does offer glimpses of his visual ingenuity and a creepy enough vibe, just not his soul.

  16. Addy K.'s rating of the film Mimic

    MIMIC was bastardized by the studio and del Toro almost swore off filmmaking. But somehow a director's cut emerged (after the success of PAN'S LABYRINTH) and del Toro went on to establish himself as a successful Hollywood director. MIMIC's limitations as strict genre film forced him to work exclusively on creating mood (gorgeous sets, lighting, creatures) transforming the damp, dark underground into an awful horror.

  17. Dan's rating of the film Mimic

    But can anyone dream up a set better than Del Toro?

  18. Ryuu Baron's rating of the film Mimic

    There is an sequel to the thing and noone noticed.

  19. Tiago Batista Santos's rating of the film Mimic

    7/10 Guillermo del Toro still finding his way.

  20. Gabriele Taddei's rating of the film Mimic

    Bell'horror, peccato Del Toro non avesse in Final Cut, finale americanata e non negativo come pensato dal regista

  21. mjgildea's rating of the film Mimic

    1 1/2 out of 5 stars. Awful! None of Guillermo Del Toro's visual charm is really present here. Aside from Mira Sorvino's 90s cuteness the cast is weak but Josh Brolin and a Norman Reedus scene helped get me through some bad CGI and a lot of unexplained horseshit. The only good thing about Mimic is that it didn't manage to kill Del Toro's career.

  22. Rocketeam's rating of the film Mimic

  23. film_lies101's rating of the film Mimic

  24. Igor Leoni's rating of the film Mimic

    Good premise but ends up filled with the usual cliches and the "jump in your seat" scares. Del Toro already showed us he can do a lot better than this.
