Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this updating of the Invisible Man tale by director Paul Verhoeven, arrogant scientist Kevin Bacon makes himself invisible and promptly embarks on prattish schoolboy pranks, graduating to sexual assault and murder when he becomes peeved by his inability to become visible again. Challenged for much of a story, the film resorts to turning Bacon's laboratory into a haunted house, from where the see-through psychopath traps his colleagues to dispose of them one by one. Unlikely scientist Elisabeth Shue leads the fight back in an exceptionally unambitious sci-fi thriller, in which predictability is alleviated only by some impressive and interesting special effects.
