ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Based on the evidence at hand, it's impossible to say whether director Oliver Hirschbiegel's (Downfall) original cut of The Invasion would have been any good. What can be said is that the mismatched blending of Hirschbiegel's low-key horror and the Wachowski Brothers' anything-but-low-key action sequences results in a cinematic dud. The Invasion doesn't know what it wants to be - an action film, a horror movie, a science fiction allegory, a mother/son bonding picture - and, as a result, it ends up being none of the above. After an atmospheric and well-paced first two reels, the movie loses coherence as it rushes through potentially slower sequences to get to the pyrotechnic payoffs that result in an abrupt, unsatisfying conclusion...Jack Finney's source material was a thinly veiled commentary about the Red Scare (not unlike Arthur Miller's The Crucible). For The Invasion, an attempt is made to tie the body snatchers' work into a myriad of real-life current events: mistrust of government, the situation in Iraq, and the fear of a worldwide medicine-resistant pandemic. It's done sloppily and haphazardly, however. In the end, allegorical aspirations have been shunted into the background by the need to enhance the film's action quotient.
