Mimic 3: Sentinel is the third installment of the science-fiction horror franchise created by Guillermo del Toro. Released in 2003, the film is directed by J.T. Petty and stars Lance Henriksen, Karl Geary, Alexis Dziena, and Keith D. Robinson. The story is set in a rundown apartment complex in New York City, where a mysterious creature known as a Judas breed is preying on the inhabitants. The Judas breed is a genetically engineered insect created by the government to combat a deadly disease carried by cockroaches. However, the Judas breed has evolved to mimic its human prey, making it virtually impossible to detect.

The main character, Marvin Montrose (Karl Geary), is a young man suffering from agoraphobia, a condition that makes him afraid of leaving his apartment. He spends most of his time spying on his neighbors through his window, using a high-tech surveillance system he built himself.

Marvin's life takes an unexpected turn when he witnesses the Judas breed attack and kill one of his neighbors. He decides to investigate further, and soon discovers that the creature is not only alive but also aware of his presence.

Marvin befriends a retired entomologist named Garbageman (Lance Henriksen), who used to work for the government and knows a lot about the Judas breed. Garbageman tells Marvin that the Judas breed is intelligent and has been observing him for a long time. Garbageman also reveals that the government has been secretly monitoring Marvin's activities because of his knowledge of the Judas breed.

As the Judas breed continues to hunt down the apartment residents, Marvin and Garbageman team up to find a way to stop the creature once and for all. They discover that a recent infestation of cockroaches in the building is actually a sign that the Judas breed is evolving into a new form. The new beast is much more dangerous than before and has the ability to manipulate its surroundings to better mimic humans.

Mimic 3: Sentinel is a gripping sci-fi horror movie with plenty of suspense and scares. The film's strength lies in its intriguing concept of a creature that can perfectly mimic humans. The Judas breed is a fascinating creation, both in terms of its appearance and its behavior. The movie does an excellent job of building tension as Marvin and Garbageman try to outsmart the creature and figure out its plans.

The performances are solid throughout, with Lance Henriksen delivering a standout performance as the world-weary entomologist who knows more than he lets on. Karl Geary also does a great job as Marvin, portraying him as a sympathetic and relatable protagonist despite his phobia.

The film's production values are impressive, considering its low budget. The apartment complex setting is appropriately dingy and claustrophobic, and the special effects used to create the Judas breed are convincing.

Overall, Mimic 3: Sentinel is a worthy addition to the franchise, offering a unique take on the monster movie genre. It may not be as exciting as the previous entries, but it still manages to deliver plenty of thrills and chills.

Mimic 3: Sentinel is a 2003 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 17 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
