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.

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.

Already the aliens are here. Already they have developed facilities for making more of their own in the form of body snatchers. The first ones to arrive naturally had the pinchers, right. And with these pinchers they can fabricate all the electronics hook-ups and plumbing lines so as to keep the humans alive as breeders for grubs. And since their biologic protein is different from humans, when they originally arrived, they could make human skins that gave normal contours over their different inherent body and face shapes? And do this with pinchers? Isabella kind of looked alien in the movie from natural causes, so that was pretty good casting. But why would blood that circulates in the human skin have to be dark red, almost black? How do you get white skin with black blood supplying it? I'm still waiting to see a space ship, cause they talked about leaving for other destinations, or maybe these creatures just hop from one planet to the next. The screenplay writer didn't tell me my answers, and they didn't tell you either. WE WANT TO KNOW!!

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.

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...
