Consensus: The Invasion is slickly made, but it lacks psychological insight and thrills.

Dana Stevens

It falls far short as an effective sci-fi thriller, not to mention the brainy political allegory it's determined to be.

The latest and lamest version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers might have been an accidental camp classic if its politics weren't so abhorrent and the movie didn't try to hide its ineptitude behind a veil of pomposity.

Stop Smiling

As straight-ahead, propulsive, reptilian-brain action, it "works" as often as not. But it's unworthy to stand with its predecessors.

Ebert & Roeper

There's much to recommend here. But there are too many inconsistencies.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Nicole Kidman's character struggles to stay awake -- as will the audience.

Geoff Berkshire

Even with its flaws The Invasion is still eerie, provocative and a solid showcase for Kidman.

AV Club

Opting for car chases instead of the thought-provoking ideas of its predecessors, the film looks like the work of, if not pod people, folks who gave up any kind of passion for the material long before the cameras started to roll.

Next time the aliens come invading, they may want to pass the brains, hold the lecture.

Joshua Starnes

The Invasion is too solidly crafted to be genuinely bad film, but it completely fails to grip as a thriller.

No where near as good as the original Donald Sutherland version. Flashy car chases and lots of running don't make a film intense or scary, there's no… More

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers gets an wee tiny transfusion from modern action flicks and you get this typical popcorn munching afternoon at the flickers. Nicky… More

Well this stinks... The only good thing about this, and the only reason people watch it is Nicole Kidman. But she does not make up for the flaws... And there… More

This story catches your attention from the start but little by little ends up getting cliched and the plot just gets weaker by the minute. However, Nicole… More

Though it's no work of art, this remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a solid thriller featuring fun performances by Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.
