Congratulations of course to Leonardo DiCaprio for his 2016 Oscar win. Unfortunately however he’d already received a NegaOscar for this movie so they cancelled each other out.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
I’m honestly not sure who this movie was made for. First, even though the second movie was set up at the end of the first, there was no set up for this movie with the last one. The Crites were supposedly exterminated at the end of the “Critters 2,” yet these monsters come from nowhere with no explanation.
The tone of the movie is wholly inconsistent, as well. It actually starts off almost like it’s supposed to be a kids movie (it sets the kids up as the protagonists). Then, of course, people get attacked and eaten. Not that many, much like the first movie, but still. It keeps jumping back and forth between cutesy and bloody. Again, who was this made for?
The acting is mostly phoned in, too, with some of the actors hamming it up while other seem to put in a genuine effort with the poor script they’ve been given. If you want to see a very young future Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio doing a B-grade sci-fi horror movie, you’ve come to the right place. In fact, that’s probably the only reason to see this movie unless you absolutely, positively have to see every “Critters” movie.
This film and “Critters 4” were made back-to-back and the ending reflects that. So you don’t necessarily get a complete story. But it is a predictable one. You can tell right away who’s going to be Critter-chow and who isn’t. I can’t recommend this one except for very forgiving completists who are futily hoping to recapture the magic of the first movie. I’m looking at you, “Highlander” fans.
Leo Dicaprio’s Ultimate #1 Fan
The movie wasn’t that good basically you can practically tell what’s going to happen before it happens even if you have never seen the movie before! very predictable . But if your a Leo fan it’s a must see because Leo is so cute in this film and he has a pretty big role in this movie! I love the part where Leo is beating a critter with a flashlight then the other critter shoots a spike and it hits Leo in the neck ! I feel bad for Leo at that part though 🙁 anyway great movie if your a Leo fan but if your not don’t bother because the movie is pretty lame if your not watching it to see Leo. This was also Leo’s first movie ever!
Middling third entry in the series
The first two “Critters” films delivered a winning blend of thrills and humor that was done with a considerable amount of vitality and a certain quirky sensibility. Alas, this second sequel to the enjoyable original doesn’t offer much in the way of energy or inspiration. The premise is promising enough: The Crites terrorize a motley assortment of folks in a rundown Los Angeles apartment building. Unfortunately, director Kristine Peterson, working from a surprisingly drab and unimaginative script by celebrated horror writer David J. Schow, lets the story unfold at a plodding pace and crucially fails to generate much in the way of either tension or momentum. Moreover, although there are a few decent comic moments (the sequence with the blithely disgusting Crites pigging out in a kitchen is reasonably funny) and several cool fanged furball attack set pieces, this film is never as dynamic and flat-out sidesplitting as it could (and should) have been. This movie does finally get cooking to a moderate degree in the fairly lively and stirring last third, but it’s not enough to alleviate the general tedium. The able cast do their best with the mediocre material: Aimee Brooks contributes a charming performance as the cute and spunky Annie, series regular Don Opper amuses as geeky and klutzy bounty hunter Charlie, Katherine Cortez does well as plucky telephone repair woman Marcis, a then unknown Leonardo DiCarprio acquits himself passably in his film debut as the likable Josh, plus there are sound turns by Diana Bellamy as the excitable Rosalie, John Calvin as struggling single dad Clifford, William Dennis Hunt as sleazy landlord Mr. Briggs, Geoffrey Blake as obnoxious handyman Frank Longo, and Frances Bay as sweet old lady Mrs. Menges. Terrence Mann makes a very brief appearance at the sequel set-up ending as bounty hunter Ug. A strictly acceptable, but overall nothing special timewaster.
