Something nasty has fell to earth, somthing that attacks us while we sleep and turns us souless replecants (I think some of these work at my work place). So Kidman and Craig embark on a journey into a nightmarish world where the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. No one can be trusted, no one is safe!
This is a new take on the classic Invasion of the Body Snathers theme, and a pretty good one at that.
But this film never quite grips as it should. This could have been a heart stopping thriller, but what you actually get is a extended episode of X-Files.
Nicole Kidman is better than she has been in a long while, and Daniel Craig is as good as always.
The film is never dull, and the paranoia is built up well, but it just lacks that extra something to make it stand out from the rest of the recent outbreak of doomsday virus thrillers.
Also the ending is very weak, and not very well explained.
The movie has it's faults, but it does not stop this film from being a good night's entertainment, but don't compare it to the masterly 1950's and 1970's classic's.
