A stellar cast is wasted in this so-so movie based of the novel The Body Snatchers. The Invasion is more of a drama than science fiction. An alien virus hitched a ride on a USA space shuttle that explodes when returning to Earth. The explosion spreads debris, including the virus, across much of the United States. People begin to exhibit flu-like symptoms once infected. What is actually happening is that the host is being transformed into an emotionless human zombie. Predictably an anti-virus is developed that saves humanity, for better or worse, because the infected humans strive for world peace.
