What are people talking about!?

This is such an underrated title! I loved the movie since the beginning. I would compare to 28 days later. It was just luck that I found this one as there is no propaganda of the movie. No one I know had heard of this movie but man, what a movie! I love the actors , I love the acting , everything! There is some darkness in the movie and there where some scenes that did scare me. Don't you like it when movies can induce different emotions in you? The idea that this series of events could actually happen in real life made the movie more appealing to me. We had something similar when the virus H1N1 came. The movie takes you right back to those moments of suspense. If you like those feelings don't let this movie unwatched!

Completely Average!

(Flash Review)

If aliens came to Earth demanding to view an alien invasion movie, this would be the most typical example one could find. As it copies themes and plot points across the genre. I'd personally direct them to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the original, as that is a classic example. In this movie, alien virus fragments fall to Earth due to a space shuttle incident. The fragments begin to slowly take over the humans one by one. Once infected and only once the human falls asleep will the virus be able to overtake the host. A secondary and weak side point is dialog about humans being an evil race as the infected humans lack emotions and personality thus making them all alike and impervious to conflict and hurting other humans or something like that. So would the human race be better doped up and in some robot state where they won't hurt each other or better as we are now? I guess if you have never seen a movie with this plot, it would be fine and dandy as it had quality production value, tense moments and big name actors. Too bad the script was so trite and predictable.

'Body Snatchers' for a new generation

After a space shuttle crashes scattering debris across a swathe of America something strange starts to happen. The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) take a surprising interest in the crash and people are told not to touch any of the debris. CDC Director Tucker Kaufman accidentally touches a piece and is infected by something. His ex-wife Carol Bennell, a Washington psychiatrist, has a patient who reports that her husband isn't her husband so she assumes something is wrong with her patient not her husband… soon it becomes apparent that more and more people aren't who they were. The media report that there is a new strain of flu and the government starts an inoculation scheme. Carol turns to her best friend Dr Ben Driscoll for help. They discover that the people who have changed have been infected by an alien virus which takes effect during REM sleep. More and more people get taken over; and as the condition spreads around the world ancient enmities are put aside… but is giving up what makes us human worth sacrificing for peace?

I recall being rather scared when I watched the 1970s version of 'The Invasion of the Body Snatchers', admittedly I was much younger when I saw it, but this version wasn't that scary. The concept was interesting and Nicole Kidman did a really fine job as protagonist Carol; the problem was once she became infected and had to avoid going to sleep to prevent being fully affected she inevitably looks more and more tired and there is something exhausting about watching somebody that tired… just as a yawn in infectious. The rest of the cast are solid enough but this is definitely Nicole Kidman's film. As the ending approaches the tension rises nicely enough then we get an ultimate resolution that comes far too fast. Overall I'd say this film was okay; worth watching if you are a fan of Nicole Kidman but not a must see.
