Bored to freaking death!

Don't waste your time.

The scene at the beginning - with the really lame (and unnecessary) CGI and an actress who can't act - makes you think it's a zombie flick, then nothing happens for quite some time.

Amateurish acting & a plodding story make this one tough to get through.

Yes, the story has been told and retold at least three times on film before but, this one is cleverly written with enough twists to make it definitely worth watching.

It's worth watching .

The firehouse scene was the best scene in the movie..very emotional and intense!

Enjoyable .

This movie worth the watch!

Still, I liked it overall and for a 6 pm Nerflix type of movie, I feel like a well spent 1.5 h of my life after a boring day at work :)

" I would let me teen daughter watch it ~ however, there are some intense scenes that she would probably have to keep her eyes shut as she really isn't my "horror flick" partner.

Total waste of my time.

It is worth watching and if you can come to it with an open mind and not try and hold it up against other similar movies you will probably like it.

it's enjoyable.

Entire film really very slow!

I enjoyed it very much.

Body Snatchers the boring version.

I enjoyed it and iam one to NOT like my time wasted watching wack movies!

The movie feels really slow, tired, old-fashioned, and at times really dull despite a few modern elements thrown in like the Internet.

The film is entertaining and the characters did a good job with their roles.

If you've not seen the originals, I think you'll enjoy this newest version entertaining, especially since It doesn't give us any idea of who or what was behind this latest invasion.

And have more dialogue in places where it's slow that helps audience relate or build a relationship with characters...

Slow like hell!

but comes across a bit cliche in the "Youth vs Adults" mindset.

Don't waste your time.

Worth the watch.

Very boring clone of "Bodysnatchers", with modern tropes added for modern idiots' viewing pleasure.

Not a masterpiece by any means, but very entertaining movie.

Well acted and shot but ultimately kinda boring.

Boring Invasion of the Body Snatchers Ripiff .

Definitely worth the fast-moving hour and a half runtime.

Overall it's just lackluster and kinda boring.

It's a suspenseful film with unexpected twists and the acting's good, so what's the problem with this film then?

Teen Flick but still enjoyable .

I actually really did like the very end scene, but mainly it was a snooze fest.

Despite being a rehash of its predecessors this little slick is definitely worth watching .

It's formulaic to say the least.

Better than the original, but still predictable.

The low-key (and low budget) effects mostly work well and don't get in the way of the story, and there is a sequence involving a mobile home/trailer (we're in small town America, after all) that practically makes the whole thing worth watching.

Boring clone of "Bodysnatchers" .

A bland copy of the original...

It's exactly as you would expect it to be but still an entertaining enough movie with likeable leads in their 20s playing high school seniors.

So boring it hurt.

The film is engaging although its just a teen flick talking about a infection being spread and taking over the world.

It was intriguing, even though, I know the "Body Snatchers" movies quite well and it was fun to watch.

I watched with with my daughter and we both enjoyed it.

Unoriginal storyline, bad acting and ridiculous outcomes make for a waste of time.

If they have then it will be harder to be immersed in it as the similarities in the movies will deaden immersion.

The beginning is a fun set up to the predictable events to come.

Highly enjoyable.

There are no surprises, zero suspense, and 100% predictable right down to the end.
