Audience Reviews for The Invasion

  • Dec 19, 2015
    This horror film adaptation of The Body Snatchers was full of fright but lacked of any thematic themes and intelligence.

    A lot better than I thought it would be. It's not a particularly good film, but it's pretty suspenseful, and could've been a lot worse.

    Given the film's tumultuous production history, it's no surprise that the final product is a mess. The script is undeniably terrible, with a sloppy exposition, stilted dialogue, no real character development, and tired cliches done in tired cliche ways. The direction is energetic, but I wasn't a fan of the erratic editing style. There are a number of good scenes in the film, it actually gets considerably better in the latter act. But overall what it does well is not nearly enough to outweigh the lack of actual groundwork. 2/5 Stars

    Well this stinks... The only good thing about this, and the only reason people watch it is Nicole Kidman. But she does not make up for the flaws... And there are quite a few. Just a really boring movie.
