Becky and I went to see The Invasion last week at the Kerasotes theaters in Castle Rock, Colorado. The Yahoo website at The Invasion describes the movie as follows:
The mysterious crash of the space shuttle leads to the terrifying discovery that there is something alien within the wreckage. Those who come in contact with it are changing in ominous and inexplicable ways. Soon Washington, DC psychiatrist Carol Bennell and her friend, Dr. Ben Driscoll, learn the shocking truth about the growing extraterrestrial epidemic: it attacks its victims while they sleep, leaving…
The Invasion is the latest and hopefully the last remake of Jack Finney’s classic science fiction novel The Body Snatchers. It stars Nicole Kidman and it’s about as good as her ex-husband Tom Cruise’s remake of the classic film War of the Worlds. If you haven’t seen War of the World with Tom Cruise it’s definitely a rental and that’s what we both felt about The Invasion.
It’s just a goofy movie. The acting isn’t good, except from Nicole Kidman who tries her best to make this movie entertaining. It also stars Daniel Craig, the latest 007 super spy guy in Casino Royale and he does a great job in the film too, but the story is just lame. It’s like a weak The Dawn of the Dead where you have a strange and invisible alien invader taking over the bodies of healthy individuals to build peace on Earth when they fall asleep, instead of dead zombies coming back to life like The Dawn of the Dead. It’s just as stupid though.
It wasn’t worth the price of admission for sure, but since I like science-fiction flicks I’ll recommend it as a rental, but Becky doesn’t think you should bother watching it at all.
