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)
Invasion isn't really a failure. I was reasonably convinced that they had reason to remake it and I thought the pace was much more reminiscent of older sci-horror than today's actionfests. Too bad the editing was not just bad but confusing and it didn't have any charm to call its own. That's right, no pointing at people and making a frightly gasping noise
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...
A pretentious remake of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, full of pseudo-deep-psychological moments, wrapped in a pseudo-artistic montage and culminating in a pointless happy ending (much like this review, I suppose).
No, it's not as good as the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But, it is quite enjoyable to watch. I especially appreciate the writers stripping the all-to-familiar storyline from the movie and presenting a totally new Body Snatchers tale. Kidman does a bang-up job as the movie's heroine. Fun movie. I recommend.
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.
