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

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

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.
April 10, 2008
The incredibly erratic structure - undoubtedly a result of the notorious reshoots - ultimately dulls the impact of the movie's overtly effective attributes...

This current update is a competent, sufficiently creepy version with an A-list cast that dwarfs its B-movie predecessors by comparison.

Watchable but unnecessary.

With her line-free mask of a face and unflappable demeanor, Nicole Kidman is an odd standard-bearer for the messy imperfection of the human race; even so, this fourth movie incarnation of Jack Finney's novel is hardly a disaster...
August 22, 2007
A sometimes cerebral, serious movie with some pretty preposterous action grafted onto it. It's at best an uneven mix.

A tightly paced, involving movie that underscores the timeless appeal of Finney's tale.

This hodgepodge of thoughtful and action-filled filmmaking qualifies as a minor success. Whether this is due to or in spite of studio meddling, we may never know.

Can someone explain to me exactly how a horror flick about a scourge that's making humanity more civilized is supposed to be scary? Not exactly edge of your seat excitement.
August 18, 2007
To its credit, The Invasion surprisingly feels cohesive, despite all the different influences.
August 17, 2007
While it doesn't completely succeed at anything it tries to do, it succeeds sufficiently at most of them to be enjoyable.
August 17, 2007
The Invasion connects on a gut level in two ways, political and existential.
August 17, 2007
The Invasion has a few things to offer both summer-movie audiences and more thoughtful film buffs.
August 17, 2007
The movie offers plenty of smarts and imaginative distractions to counter the stacking of improbabilities.

[It] may not be a patch on the original, but it does have a few things the other versions lack: a nonstop lurching pace propelled by jump cuts and flash-forwards, Nicole Kidman as the hero... and a bitter kind of satiric irony leaking around the edges.

This take on The Body Snatchers is surprisingly stylish.
