Species II

Corrected entry: In the scene where the female alien jumps through the glass wall of her cell, if you play it in slow motion you will see that the glass is already shattered a split second before she jumps through it. (As per MM's rules, if a mistake is significant the requirement of slow motion/pause to spot is permitted.)

Correction: While you have correctly identified MM's ruling on slow-motion mistakes this particular mistake is a minor one since many special effects and stunt setups become apparent in slow motion and mere split seconds are entirely acceptable within the the realms of film making.


Corrected entry: All the children that are born... where do they get their clothes so fast? They all must shop in the exact same place as well!

Correction: Their father gets them clothes. And they all look like pieces of bedsheets.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when Natasha's character has been supposedly "killed", her carotid artery pulse is clearly visible on the side of her neck.

Correction: She isn't dead, and is only killed early in Species 3.

Corrected entry: In an early scene, it is claimed that Sil has a poison capsule in her that will release and kill her if she gets a certain distance away from the lab. Later she leaves the lab completely, but nothing is ever mentioned about the capsule and it does not release. Before she leaves she destroys some equipment, but it is apparently only the lockdown mechanism.

Correction: When Sil is making her escape from the lab Laura shouts to a female guard to get the tether. The tether is the toxic capsule in Sils head. Sil manages to knock out the guard and in the nick of time she rips out the red button to prevent it's activation. The red button is not for locking down the building. Locking down the facility would be useless because while men are posted at the front door to the buiding Sil manages to break through the solid metal door.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Natasha crashes through the glass wall of her cell, she is wearing underwear which is quite visible. Immediately after the chase scene, she finds the other alien, drops her dress, and is no longer wearing underwear.

Correction: Since you never see Eve go into the barn it is a possibility that she removed her underwear after she reached it.

Corrected entry: If the female alien (Natasha Henstridge) is supposed to be secluded from men then why does she have a television that show shows with men? In the chase scene the female scientist says that her favourite show is "Dukes of Hazzard"... MEN.

Correction: Eve can't have men in close proximity. Male pheremones are what trigger her mating instincts (which is what makes her so dangerous). Watching men on tv won't do anything.

Factual error: During the Mars-flight, the way the spacecraft uses the rocket thrusters is unrealistic. For example when they are nearing Mars, they should be using the rockets against their movement, to slow down the speed. But in the movie they are using the rockets towards Mars.

Trivia: An early concept for the film was to make a more direct follow-up to the original's climax, where we see a rat become infected by the alien DNA. The film would have revolved around an army of alien-rat hybrid monsters that must be exterminated. This idea was eventually dropped in favor of a different script.


More trivia for Species II

Question: When the Debutante examines herself in the mirror, why does she center on and support her breast just before doubling over in pain?

Answer: She was most likely giving herself a breast-self examination. Doing this would enable her to feel for lumps, distortion or swelling which if felt early would mean that she might have early stages of breast cancer and could get it checked immediately.

Her breast was sensitive and painful because she could sense that something wasn't right with her.

So the alien embryo inside of her body was giving her cancer?

No. It wasn't giving her cancer. She probably does a breast-self examination periodically to insure that there's nothing wrong with her breasts.

Plus, it wouldn't make any sense for an alien embryo to give her cancer since after giving birth to an alien hybrid she would immediately die.
