Editorial Reviews

Ben and Lisa, reporters for The Boston Daily, are looking for stories to match their ambitions. They find one when the mayor is assassinated not by a crazed gun nut, but by a terrified man desperate to stop an alien invasion. Starting in the highest echelon of government, the infection is quickly spreading. To stop it, Ben and Lisa must infiltrate its terrifying source, hunted every step of the way like humans.

3.0 out of 5 stars A "B" movie with its own artistic points September 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What I remember about this movie, which I watched a couple months ago, is that it is not a "formula" thriller. In particular, just when you think the Good Guy has a plan, the plot leaves the well-worn Hollywood rails when, basically, his plan doesn't work.

Another piece of artistic flair is the name of the movie itself. It doesn't refer to the obvious "bodysnatchers" central theme, but rather, the Bad Guy claims that *knowledge* is an infection that could spread and must be contained at all costs -- knowledge of his plot, that is. Shades of "the pen is mightier than the sword" and all that.

The science behind the sci-fi had its corny and disbelievable points, but is not as bad in that regard and many movies, and not to the point of detracting from the action.

3.0 out of 5 stars Infected by other conspiracy movies September 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Infected is one of those movies that rely on paranoia and distrust of Big Brother. In this case it's the Whitefield Corporation, a private contractor who produces a cheap, popular drink called Hydropure. Thing is, Hydropure actually carries a virus. But it's worse than that...

Hydropure is actually run by insectoid aliens in human guise trying to take over Earth through a selective breeding program. But it's worse than that...

The virus makes you a prime host for alien grubs! The Whitefield Corporation has also infiltrated the healthcare system, so when a sick person comes in to be treated they get the "ovipositor" treatment in which they are injected with up to fifty fat maggot-like things. It's nasty stuff, and Infected plays the ick factor for all its worth.

If this plot sounds familiar, you've already seen it in movies like V and They Live. They follow the usual formula: average Joe (Gil Bellows) and former lover-with-a-history (Maxim Roy) get pulled into a conspiracy of epic proportions. The alien terrorists are embedded everywhere: editors (Isabella Rossellini), cops (Carlo Mestroni), and just about everyone else. There's also a traitor in the ranks who is a friend of humanity, in this case Malcolm Burgess (Judd Nelson), who has a plan: reverse engineer the virus from our hero to counter the infection. He will create a rhinovirus (the common cold!) to counter the alien invasion, shades of War of the Worlds.

Of course, the easiest way to spot the aliens is their failure to use contractions. And their gigantic black pupils. And the extra pair of insectoid limbs that occasionally explode out of their chests.

The plot ping pongs all over the place. The acting ranges from "good try" to "please stop." The science is sketchy.

2.0 out of 5 stars What? No, seriously, what? April 15, 2010
Format:DVD
Infected (Adam Weissman, 2008)

Please explain to me why on earth someone tabbed Adam Weissman, whose directorial efforts previous to this were centered on Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel (iCarly, Drake and Josh, All That, etc.), to direct a Sci-Fi Original Movie. Was Tibor Takacs not free? Was Uwe Boll not answering his calls? Had Timo Rose gone out to lunch with his wife? Because judging by the cast list here, either the producers weren't hurting for funds or a surprising number of otherwise decent actors were. I get the feeling this is one of those movies that didn't start life as a Sci-Fi Channel Original, but got picked up on the cheap when no other studio would distribute. (Or maybe I think that just because I actually rented it, instead of watching it on what is now Syfy. Don't know.)

In any case, the painful plot has to do with aliens who want to use Earth's population as a food source, and a couple of intrepid journalists, Ben (Gil Bellows, probably best-remembered for the TV series Ally McBeal) and Lisa (Canadian actress Maxim Roy, currently appearing in Defying Gravity), who of course happen to be exes, because that's an integral part of any B-movie on Syfy. They're lorded over by Carla Plume (Isabella Rossellini, showing how far the mighty can fall), an editor with a heart of gold. Ben handles the crank page ("The Mystery of Science", oh yeah), while Lisa has gone on to bigger and better things. One of those bigger and better things hits her doorstep when an eco-terrorist calls her and sends her to the local Fed building, where he shoots the mayor and then grabs a blood sample that turns out to be jet black.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four-outta-five [for the genre] AIN'T bad. May 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Ya hafta take into consideration that the people MAKING' these "SY FY" [Channel] movies ---- that cannot even SPELL sci fi ---- are
not AIMING for three hour THEATRICAL-quality blockbusters. None of the "Maneaters" movies will garner an Academy/Emmy Award.
No one IN them will BRAG about their acting prowess, and, probably, directing one won't advance your career like Steven Spielberg's.

THAT said, for a TV-lengthed (90 minutes, or less) movie, it moves briskly along. There ARE questionable/illogical plot developments
along the way. There AREN'T --- seemless --- completely undetectable, computer-generated special effects. The CGI/SFX are adequate
for WHAT the geeks are getting paid for doing them.

Incredibly dumb --- or incredibly entertaining --- THAT is up to YOU.

I'm 64. I revert to the years when I was watching first-run Jerry Lewis/Vincent Price/John Wayne/Three Stooges movies. I've SEEN better;
I've seen worse. I SEE through the eyes of a grateful 12-year old. At MY age, I'm grateful I C=A=N see!

I've seen PLENTY of incredible SFX. The special effects of Ray Harryhausen, and his mentor that did the original King Kong (1933)
don't match up to those in the more-recent King Kong [Blu-ray]. But! Which movie will still remain a hundred years from now?
The Superman Cartoons from the '40s led to Superman - The 1948 & 1950 Theatrical Serials Collection that STILL had the CARTOON
[animated]-flying sequences... until early TV's Adventures of Superman.
