As straight-ahead, propulsive, reptilian-brain action, it "works" as often as not. But it's unworthy to stand with its predecessors.

Even with its flaws The Invasion is still eerie, provocative and a solid showcase for Kidman.

The Invasion is too solidly crafted to be genuinely bad film, but it completely fails to grip as a thriller.

As ridiculous as The Invasion gets, its competent acting, fast pace, and campy B-movie vibe keep you weirdly transfixed against your better judgment.

There are some nice shocks to be had, but not enough to stop viewers from falling asleep, which is ironic considering that staying awake is an essential plot point for Kidman's character.

The aliens make it so plainly obvious to their intentions that it'd be ridiculous not to notice what was happening with their landing on Earth...

Taken as a more popcorn-y sci-fi flick with a cool look, a tense, creepy feel, and uncommonly handsome leads giving above-average-for-the-genre performances, however, The Invasion is perfectly entertaining.

There are worse ways to spend an hour and a half than staring mindlessly at a movie's impossibly beautiful cast, but there are plenty of better ones as well.

The Invasion is the fourth and most recent big screen adaptation of Jack Finney's 1955 science fiction novel The Body Snatchers, and hopefully it will be the last.

Fails to live up to its own aspirations, undermined by misguided attempts to enliven the action with car wrecks and explosions.

This has to be the lamest alien invasion movie since the killer tomatoes attacked.

The incredibly erratic structure - undoubtedly a result of the notorious reshoots - ultimately dulls the impact of the movie's overtly effective attributes...

Treat yourself to the Donald Sutherland version, plus, his perm is more frightening than anything that happens in Invasion.

Somewhere in The Invasion is a good movie scratching to get out.

The Invasion saps all the spirit out of what once was a classic alien saga.

The Invasion moves in too many conventional directions, its unwillingness to take chances proving its ultimate downfall.

Reflete a impassividade de seus vilões, já que desenvolve sua narrativa potencialmente tensa de maneira insossa e pouco envolvente.

The film as a whole is a failure, but additionally, it's also a mess of unedited or badly edited scenes.

Depressing proof of how Hollywood movies have just grown worse since the 1970's . . .
