  • Except for one terrifically adroit sequence in a subway, there is nothing understated about The Invasion. With all the shoot-outs, the screaming, the chases, collisions and fireballs, there isn't much time for storytelling. show more

  • An involving sci-fi action-thriller, probably longer on chase sequences than the original director wanted and shorter on the "ick" factor than the studio wanted. show more

  • Mostly about delivering thrills, and chills, and this it does with moderate success and a bunch of fast, no-nonsense edits. show more
