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)
Pretty much an unmitigated disaster from the word go, Jeffrey Wright appears to be the only actor who memorized his dialogue enough to seem like he was acting, everyone else spouts their dialogue off just fast enough that they don't forget and half to do a second take.

Inferior remake. Pursues the paranoia theme moderately effectively for a while, but suffers from poor editing and a messy screenplay. The conclusion is not only abrupt but unsatisfying (both inherently, and within the logic of the film).
Terrible in most every respect. Kidman tries to save this movie, but she's fighting a lost cause for the whole poorly paced runtime. There's a total lack of atmosphere or suspense, & tonally the whole film just feels off. The screenplay is poor, with many scenes feeling unexplored & underdeveloped just adding to general ethos of untapped potential that seeps through the entire movie. Daniel Craig works the gay fringe & turtle neck combo a treat though. Can I add bonus marks for that? Yes I can.
Starting off at a snail's pace and never reaching its full potential, The Invasion makes use of starring an A-lister in an otherwise dull thriller. Much like I am Legend, but to a lesser extent, the weight of the movie is held on Kidman's shoulders and hers alone. The middle segment is at least entertaining, albeit unfulfilling, the movie lingers around trying to be more intense than it ever could hope to be. It's worth a watch, but don't expect much out of it.
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 It's like one bad movie has been replaced by another!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.
one of the worst and ridiculous endings of the film history. what a shame after two decent original films. cannot find words to describe how bad the movie is, especially later parts. 5 for only kidman. by the way, very bad editing
Alien invasion is one of my favourite themes for a movie. But it didn't work well here I think. Stupid science, stupid plot, bad acting (although Nicole Kidman was good for her standards), bad cinematography...
Some very well crafted tension moments and a great leading performance can't overcome the terible editing and mess of a third act. It's sad because some very interesting ideas are just left raw and wandering around.
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.
