Grade B-
Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

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

A slick but forgettable, characterless thriller.
Dennis Harvey
Variety

All good things must come to an end -- in this case, the lucky streak that's made every adaptation of Jack Finney's 1955 sci-fi novel "The Body Snatchers" distinctive and effective, until now.

The uninspired fourth version of the 1956 sci-fi classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers,"
Joanne Kaufman
Wall Street Journal

Except for one terrifically adroit sequence in a subway, there is nothing understated about The Invasion.

Newest 'Invasion' misses its chances
Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

The Invasion is mostly about delivering thrills, and chills, and this it does with moderate success and a bunch of fast, no-nonsense edits.
