| Species The Awakening: Probably best it ended here
I didn't mind the original Species movie, I loved Gigers influence and it had a cast that enabled it to really stand out from other similar sci-fi movies at the time.

The second was passable affair and followed on nicely, but it already felt a bit like it was treading water.

The third starred the excellent Robert Knepper and though just about watchable really come across as a cash grab.

Alas with the fourth here the "Feel" of cash grab isn't a feeling anymore, it's very blatant. Straight to DVD nonsense with enough of a budget (Ish) to pull off the sfx but delivers very little else.

Starring veteran actor Ben Cross it's another erotic sci-fi outing that sadly brings little to the Species lore, delivers a rather underwhelming and rather rushed story and is decidedly average at its best.

Maybe Species should have stopped at the first movie, some films just don't need to become a franchise and this is a great example.

Should Species be rebooted? Absolutely not as the first movie delivered, want your Species fix go watch that.

The Good:

SFX are good for a straight to DVD sequel

The Bad:

"Alien" cutaways are a tad pointless

Brings nothing to the franchise

Feels rushed
