Britmovie wrote, "This threadbare Anglo-American variation on the Invasion of the Body Snatchers theme sounds like a good idea, but with too much tame dialogue and too little action, this sloppily produced sci-fi film meanders along before tamely closing in a very British sort of way. therefore just comes across as daft."
