Do you have any idea what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll read when youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re done with that? I have quite a list lined up. Here are just a few: Poltergeist, by Kat Richardson Once Bitten, Twice Shy, by Jennifer Rardin Princes of the Golden Cage, by Nathalie Mallet Crystal Rain and Ragamuffin, by Tobias Buckell
When a shuttle falls to earth, mysterious spores are found in the wreckage. And those exposed to the alien substance begin displaying strange, emotionless behavior. Soon Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman) becomes sucked into a nightmare where no one is who they seem to be. Her friend and colleague Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) helps Carol discover that the alien organism infects people and changes them when they fall asleep. While trying to stay awake, Carol must avoid the growing number of changed zombie-like people and find her missing son who may hold the key to stopping the invasion.
The Invasion is literally a non-stop, heart-pounding thriller. As I left the theater, I felt like I had just had 10 cups of coffee. Emotions and suspense run rampant from beginning to end. Kidman and Craig have wonderful chemistry. And the acting was incredible, especially from Kidman and the young boy who played her son.
Coming down from such an intense adrenalin rush, I must admit it was a fun ride.
