Only the most undiscriminating monster-pic buff will come away satisfied.
February 9, 2006
There's no suspense (ETs rampage from the word go); no frissons (loud hailers telegraph the shocks); and it's insufficiently bright to be an hommage.
August 30, 2004
A choppy, unsuspenseful succession of chases, melodramatic showdowns and routine special effects.

The Puppet Masters occasionally lives up to its reputation, but the delay between story conception and celluloid conversion has clearly wilted its power and potential.
January 1, 2000
Attempts at detailed characterization don't work particularly well, and there's a love story that feels as forced as it is superfluous - although even that isn't as unnecessary as the film's final ten minutes.
