Willard is back (in the form of Glover) and he brought the rats with him. He's the beaten-down son to a hateful, domineering mom, and the punching bag for his brutish boss (Ermey). The twist in this one is that he communicates with fuzzy, white Socrates, instead of the apparently steroid-fueled giant rat Ben, which causes a vermin power struggle. Sometimes clever (the original Willard, Bruce Davison, is seen in a painting as this Willard's deceased father), but mostly soulless remake does have the advantage of Glover's presence in a role that seems made for him. He goes all-out and over-the-top to portray Willard's swirling psychosis and ever-escalating delusions of grandeur.
