  1. Obliterating the original structure and intent of "Body Snatchers" is cinema-lit blasphemy.

    Noisome, fragmented mess of a movie, the fourth film based on Jack Finney's novel "The Body Snatchers" and the worst of them all.
  3. 30
    The only mildly interesting bit of casting comes from bringing Cartwright back (as one of Bennell’s patients).

    Is there a Razzie Award for worst casting? If so, it’s one of several that can be reserved early for this fourth, spectacularly lousy screen version of Jack Finney’s 1954 novella "The Body Snatchers," which some bright light envisioned as the ideal starring vehicle for the Cold Mountain herself, Nicole Kidman, and for Daniel Craig, last seen as the most poker-faced James Bond on record.
  5. 25
    In the fourth and by far the worst screen version of "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers," Nicole Kidman's character struggles to stay awake - as will the audience.
  6. 11
    It's the pod people's version of a great, contemporaneously resonant cinematic fable, created by apparent committee, and utterly devoid of both meaning and feeling. The tagline warns: "Do not trust anyone. Do not show emotion. Do not fall asleep." Yawn.

    The invasion has cool effects and a strong performance from Nicole Kidman. People are infected in the
    movie and they become aliens. Nicole
    protects her son and herself from the infection. Overall the movie
    Is watchable but unoriginal, grade B.

    The invasion has a borrowed plot from a few movies but the effects are worth seeing. Nicole Kidman gives
    a nice role as a psychologist and
    she protects her son from the infected people in the city. The movie has
    thrills and action but don't expect originality.

    A very poorly done adaptation of the story. The actors are fine, but they can not really do much with this poor script. The movie totally lacking of suspense. There is no paranoia at all. The whole thing has a TV quality to it. The ending is also abrupt and lazy. The director obviously had no idea how to present this material. Not recommended. Full Review »
