I have always liked invisible men pictures,
and this is a very scary, gory, erotic thriller.
Believe me, this is not a nice guy. He does some really bad stuff,
along with some very graphic violence. I hope this won't stand
in the way of your seeing this surprisingly good horror film.
The dialog is a bit cliched and stupid
at times, but who cares? It has the most startling effects ever
for an invisible man picture, so give it a chance and have fun
And remember, it's science fiction, for
crying out loud.
With some of the most impressive visual
effects and the worst script of all time, Hollow Man truly
serves up a mixed bag of salad (complete with Bacon bits).
Yes, it has eye-popping special effects,
some of the best ever, but it also has characters so underdeveloped
that you find yourself rooting for the bad guy in the midst of
the mindless gorefest that takes up the end of the picture.
Visual effects do not a movie make.
starts out wowing us with its biomedical visual dazzle, with
the transformation scenes featuring both man and beast, which
are spooky and spectacular. It's like an anatomy text book illustration
come to nauseous, shaking life.
The picture sets up and then fails to deliver
sensible ways of having fun with invisibility. It could have
been a blast of ridiculous fun, but is instead bad and vicious.
The star turns into a skin-deep monster who all but disappears
as a character.
Cheap sex, pointless violence, and lack
of meaning leave only a thin, temporary value to this depressive,
empty movie nightmare.
