David Elliott Copley News Service Species slams forward with bigbudget vim As shown in No Way Donaldson can rig and Disney division exhibits the art of small films If you had to have sex with an alien monster who is masked by a human body you might wish that the thing had the body of Natasha Henstridge The young modelturnedactress is very much on display here Her acting is often in competition with her body which seem more keen to make public appearances than the alien thing squirming and snarling inside her Henstridge is all over this big slick notforkids fairly scary rather silly thriller As Sil she es capes in preteen form from a fed eral lab where she was grown from space seed The governments chief scien tist played by suitably domed and crinklebrowed Ben Kingsley was preparing to gas
