The main problem is the film just takes you out of it a lot. In the beginning a scientist handles a piece of metal without any gloves seconds after a news broadcast says not to do this. How on earth could the scientist not know this? Later Kidman is running in an urban area being chased by tens of people, jump cut into a large city and no one's following her. These types of flaws just prevent you from getting into the movie. Also the message at the end is so heavy handed it's almost laughable.
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.
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 It's like one bad movie has been replaced by another!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.
Oh, the Belicecs and Bennell (Nicole) are back, so are the friendzoned doc (Craig), to force a connection with the movie from 1978 and even with the recent conflicts in Mideast. Too much. This was meant to fail. They should just stop trying to remake Body Snatchers once and for all.
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...
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.
