Summary: The Invasion is a nightmarish journey into a world where the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. The mysterious crash of the space shuttle leads to the terrifying discovery that there is something alien within the wreckage. Those who come in contact with it are changing in ominous and inexplicable ways. Soon Washington D.C. psychiatrist Carol Bennell and her colleague Ben Driscoll learn the shocking truth about the growing extraterrestrial epidemic... (imdb)
The Invasion is watchable, but that's about as good as it gets. There are great moments, and ones that really get your heart racing, but every now and then, we come to a screeching halt, and it takes a long time to get the momentum that was building up back. It has a good cast and a good premise, but is predictable, doesn't have great enemies, and doesn't use its cast to the best of its ability.
It's rare that a film is the embodiment of its own idea, as a ham-fisted but well meaning rumination on human emotions - complete with a "these are our themes" speech - is slowly replaced with a dim-witted action film. The audience might even be napping partway through, mirroring the method of infection depicted on screen, so they'd wake up to a movie that looks like what they started watching, but isn't quite the same. It's like one bad movie has been replaced by another! Clever.
Surprisingly Nichole Kidman is quite entertaining and also very beautiful in this movie. Daniel Craig is also great. The aliens are all emotionless, dull and rather boring, passing their plague by puking on people. But then they have to sleep for it to set in, like the old invasion of the body snatchers movie. The dogs reacting like they did was stupid. There were holes in the plot, but it is still thought provoking and entertaining. Music was very good and there was plenty of action.
"The Invasion's lack of thematic coherence points not only to a simplistic view of the world but to the fragmentation one risks when undergoing artistic collaboration within the film industry." - Rob Humanick

I liked it, but not nearly as much as the other Snatcher flicks. It would have went off better had it not stuck with the neat and tidy ending of the original. The '78 bleak ending was much more powerful.
