San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Connects on a gut level in two ways, political and existential.

There's no question The Invasion works in a mechanical, by-the-numbers manner. But it's what the movie leaves you with -- absolutely nothing -- that is the scariest thing about it.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
An involving sci-fi action-thriller, probably longer on chase sequences than the original director wanted and shorter on the "ick" factor than the studio wanted.

The movie isn't terrible; it's just low-rent and reductive.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Mostly about delivering thrills, and chills, and this it does with moderate success and a bunch of fast, no-nonsense edits.

Except for one terrifically adroit sequence in a subway, there is nothing understated about The Invasion. With all the shoot-outs, the screaming, the chases, collisions and fireballs, there isn't much time for storytelling.

Buried somewhere within the bipolar extravaganza that is The Invasion is an awfully good movie that got away.

It's a shame the aliens are so preachy, because this remake of the 1956 and 1978 versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers features a top-notch cast in Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig and moments of unnerving terror.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Here is a great story born to be creepy, and the movie churns through it like a road company production. If the first three movies served as parables for their times, this one keeps shooting off parable rockets that fizzle out.

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