The Invasion

2007-12-10 12:33

What it's about:

A space shuttle mysteriously crashes on Earth, and an extraterrestrial disease in the wreckage begins infecting human beings. A psychiatrist from Washington DC, Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman), and her colleague Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) discovers that the transformation caused by the infection is triggered by REM sleep, robbing them of their humanity.

As the infection spreads, fewer people can be trusted. Fighting to stay awake, Carol looks for her son, who may hold the answer to stopping the invasion.

What the critics thought of it:

"The Invasion gets you rooting for the aliens to be defeated, but the film's soul feels as if it had already been snatched."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"A slick but forgettable, characterless thriller."
Dennis Harvey, Variety

"To its credit, The Invasion surprisingly feels cohesive, despite all the different influences"
Kit Bowen,

"If not a train-wreck, this is certainly more than a fender-bender. In a world overflowing with targets for a satirical pasting, we needed something a lot sharper than this."
Simon Braund, Empire Magazine

"An effective action thriller that only hints at the psychological complexity the director might have wanted."
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
