Sound familiar? Yep it is the second "popular" remake of the 1950's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." And based on the book "The Body Snatchers" by Jack Finney. With the exception that it is more up-to-date with technology they have brought back the old time suspense build up as apposed to just gore. It is almost flawless with the exception of the exception of the cell phones. First thing aliens would take over unless we are already subjects of automation invasion. Oh no that is a different movie.
The production is a vehicle for lots of old popular actors as cameos in this film. However the main actors, including Nicole Kidman are still good at their craft.
Music by John Ottman so permeated the movie that we do not get any down time to think.
Visual effects supervisor Boyd Shermis show the only bad CGI scene of a helicopter; other than that they do not let the graphics overwhelm the story as is the tendency today.
For those interested in Blu-ray, it nether adds or subtracts from the film. There is an advantage that you can fast forward with sound. Oh yes and lots of DVD extras including an advertisement for the latest Warner Blu-ray.
And to give the writers/director credit, "The Invasion" does its best to update the classic tale of body-snatching aliens for the 21st century, and has some solid performances by Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman. Unfortunately, the movie has clearly been ripped to shreds and sewn back together, with major plot threads dropped and an incoherent second half.
The space shuttle Patriot unexpected crashes back on Earth, and a strange fungus-like substance is found clinging to the wreckage. One of the people who encounters it is CDC director Tucker Kaufman (Jeremy Northam), who pricks his finger on a piece of debris.
Then his ex-wife Carol (Kidman) begins to notice things -- dog attacks, strangely stoic children, Tucker's determination to spend time with their son Oliver, and a patient who claims "my husband is not my husband." When her friend Ben (Craig) is called in to examine the Czech ambassador, they find that he's covered in a weird plasticky skin wrap.
They soon realize that a strange alien intelligence is infecting people, and taking over their minds and bodies when they enter REM sleep. The thing is, there may be a few people who are immune to their influence -- and Oliver is one of them. Now Carol much save her son to save the human race, but how can she stay herself when the whole world has been taken over?
First, some praise. "The Invasion" does its best to reimagine the "body-snatchers" story for the 21st-century -- instead of making duplicates of the humans, the aliens possess the bodies of their victims.Read more ›
if a similar scenario were to occur.how would you react?would you
resist,or would you quietly accept your fate.i liked the
movie,myself.i'm not usually a fan of Nicole Kidman,but i liked her in
this movie.i wish Daniel Craig had had a more significant role.he
really didn't have a lot to do.there are a lot of intense moments in
the film,lots of action.in fact,the film focuses more on action than
the psychology of the events taking place.had it been the other way
around,this would have been a very different movie.i still liked it.i'm
not sure why it did so poorly at the box office.it's very relevant in
today's climate.for me,The Invasion is a 4/5
2. Clever spores manage to land safely, without damage to property or loss of life by falling shuttle debris.
3. Enterprising people immediately rack up sales on eBay, spreading more viruses than Microsoft
4. Once infected, people who fall asleep become mindless emotionless zombies
5. Entire audiences watching this movie are converted by the half way mark
6. The script calls for a heroine who can act like a mindless emotionless zombie
7. Casting people unanimously choose Nicole Kidman for the part
8. Zombie state actually improves the personalities of certain characters
9. Donald Sutherland remains unchanged, as he's too busy laughing at Daniel Craig's dialogue to fall asleep.
10. The movie teaches us that you can get sick if you allow people to throw up on your face
11. Zombie people bring about world peace, proving that being mindless is fine once you don't let emotions get in your way.
12. Like the zombie people, you won't remember this movie after your next dreamless nap.
