Plot:

Battling a life depression, Earl Bassett is offered a job as a mercenary to help a Mexican oil company with a Graboid epidemic that’s killing more people each day. However, the humans aren’t the only ones with a new battle plan..

Review:

Fred Ward had it all. He should have been set for life after discovering the Graboids in the previous movie. Fame. Fortune. It was all his, but after a series of horrible investments he lost it all.

Back in Paradise, trying to make a living with an emu farm, alone and depressed, he’s propositioned by a Mexican Oil company that has developed a Graboid problem. Initially, he says no, but the draw of $50k per dead monster is enough to draw him back in.

Older and wiser and with the backing of the Mexican military he is properly armed this time. Those Graboids didn’t stand a chance. Still, their numbers start to overwhelm him and his new sidekick, Chris Gartin, so they call in the big guns of Michael Gross. A doomsday prepper and himself depressed after the excitement of the Graboid situation and destruction of his marriage, Gross hops at the chance.

Things are going easy, too easy, when they get thrown a curveball. The Graboids have evolved. Bursting from their hideous bodies are a new creature, easier to kill, but just as vicious and rapidly multiplying.

Death! Destruction! Mayhem!

With quick thinking and tons of explosives they manage to survive and the Graboids are once again destroyed and this time Fred Ward has more responsible aims for his money.
