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)
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...
Excerpts from conversations while watching this film: "Why did she do that?" "Why didn't she kill him?" "This makes no sense." "We should've smoked some weed before watching this." "Daniel Craig needs a haircut and an acting coach." "wha" "Why did that happen?" "This is so fucking gay." "Why is every other scene Nicole Kidman hugging her annoying kid? We get it bitch, you love your son. Move on kthx" "You have any excedrin cause this shitty editing is giving me a headache?" "Let's get high" "k"
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.
If you are familiar with the other film versions, you should have a good time. This one certainly shares its faults, but it manages to hold interest and keep things tense, while failing to really frighten you like the '78 version did. It has ideas, a fresher look, and a message that more than wants to smack you over the head. Enough is enough there-but the performances are generally good, and if you know what you're getting into, it's not one to bore. It's no classic- merely an easy distraction.
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
I thought that it started off pretty well. Then it fell completely flat and didn't get any better either. A typical, predictable, sappy movie about Kidman loving a child. She expresses that well through a million textmessages (why??) to him. Many wtf moments. This movie just sucked. Shitty ending too
