With the director of Downfall, two strong leads (Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig) and a source novel that has already spawned two classic movies, you would think the latest version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers would be a hit...

Unfortunately not: it's still a decent way to spend a hour and a half, but it's not special nor a classic piece of cinema.

There's something missing, or it tries to be too many types of film: the car-chase sequence sits uneasily with the info-dumps and psychological mumbo-jumbo.

Kidman and Craig try their best, their relationship believeable, but perhaps it's the German director hamstrung by archetypal Hollywood uber-producer Joel Silver...

Who knows.

An average effort at best: 7/10.
