If you like 1950's Sci-Fi movies, you should like this one.
If you're not a fan of science fiction, you should pass on this movie. I think that may be why many others left negative comments about this film and rated it so low. And certainly there are many flaws, but it's a "made for TV" mini-series, not a big budget block-buster. I was somewhat surprised that this was shown on The Hallmark Channel. The title sounds like something that you would find on The Sci-Fi Channel. So with rather low expectations, I started watching it and found it entertaining. Reminded me a lot of Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1956. I thought all the cast did a good job with a very predictable script, especially Campbell Scott. Daryl Hannah's character would have been better played by someone else, but the only movie I liked her in was Splash from 1984. So think of this as a remake of a 1950's sci-fi movie, but with better special effects and a better soundtrack. I gave it a seven rating.
