Invasion of the Body Snatchers has never been a very good movie. Many would say that it's one of the worst movies to ever be made. The reviews are right, but I think it's worth giving it another chance. The general consensus is that the last act (The Smoke Monster) might be decent, but the rest of the movie is very disappointing.
Before you even start reading the review, I encourage you to look up Invasion of the Body Snatchers online. At least if you've seen the movie you'll have an idea of what to expect. Even though the online reviews tend to be negative, the good news is that they do seem to agree that it's not quite as bad as people make it out to be.
You see, the thing about most movie reviews is that they are created by people who don't know much about the movie. Even though the reviews are on Rotten Tomatoes, they are still opinions. So while a few reviews might be accurate, the majority of them will just be false advertising. One of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes seems to give Invasion of the Body Snatchers a rating of 8.5/10, which is a pretty good score. But don't take my word for it, go look up Invasion of the Body Snatchers on online bookstores, Google it, and see for yourself!
It seems that many of the reviews that are written in this movie are written by people who are just trying to hype up the ratings. Since the movie is not really good, they want everyone to see it before they have a chance to ruin it for everyone else. I guess they can't say that they liked the movie because they didn't like it, but they did say that they hated it.
Now, the reason why I say that Invasion of the Body Snatchers is not a very good movie is because I thought that the first series was a masterpiece. The first installment was about an alien invasion that was happening in New York City, and then the government did absolutely nothing to stop it.
After this happened, the aliens invaded New York and took over the government. The whole movie was ridiculous, yet was still so much fun to watch.
The second movie in the series is about a couple of people who kidnap someone (The Smoke Monster) and later use his mind to create a series of movies based on his experiences. But now the aliens are coming back and it's time for an all out war.
This is one of the reasons why I say that Invasion of the Body Snatchers is not a very good movie. However, if you want to watch a movie that is completely ridiculous, has no plot, and is full of aliens, then you need to look up Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
