3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Solid March 17, 2001
Format:DVD
This film's strength is neither the special effects nor the action sequences, but rather the time it spends exploring the psychological realm: anger, jealousy, and of course, what you would do if you never had to look at yourself in the mirror.
Kevin Bacon plays Sebastian Caine, an egotistical scientist who is leading a government-funded project on invisibility. Caine is so determined to make his project work that he sidesteps Pentagon authorization and brashly makes himself the study's first human test subject.
Trouble arises with the invisibility antidote, however, and Caine is unable to regain opacity. This turn of events, and his subsequent extended confinement to his underground lab, quickly bring out the dark side of Caine's megalomaniac personality. He begins to vent his emotions in most unhealthy ways, violently seeking outlets for his bitterness over a recent split with his girlfriend, his jealousy and rage towards her new lover, and his obsession with the female neighbor he watches through his window. Drawing on the premise that invisibility eliminates feelings of guilt, Hollow Man has Sebastian become a very, very bad man.
The dilemma, of course, lies in how to stop him: what do you do to defend yourself against a man that you can't even see? The situation is resolved, but not before Caine creates an enormous bloodbath, and unfortunately not before I began to lose interest in the film. Near its end, Hollow Man begins to transform into a fairly rote action movie, complete with fireballs and (spoiler alert!) a dramatic escape through an unstable elevator shaft. Trust me, you've seen it all before.
One advantage of the DVD format is that the discriminating viewer can skip fairly directly to the middle of the movie, which is where the psychologically-driven sequences lie and is the part worth watching. The rest, honestly, is rather hollow.

1.0 out of 5 stars You don't make history by following the rules February 10, 2014
Format:DVD
There are movies that make you feel dirty and miserable, because there is simply nothing there to like -- not characters, plot or even a good feeling.

One good example: "Hollow Man," the loosest possible adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic novel "The Invisible Man"... except that instead of one stupid scientist, we have a whole cast of them. Gratuitous animal-abuse, rape, some great special effects and a despicable cast of annoying characters... well, it's easy to see why Paul Verhoeven hasn't made an American movie since, even if it was very profitable.

A bunch of scientists are working on an invisibility formula for the military, led by the arrogant Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon). When they successfully return a gorilla to visibility (almost killing it in the process), Sebastian decides that it's time for human trials -- and secretly has the team inject HIM with the serum. All seems to be going well... until the reversion therapy fails. Sebastian is stuck until his team finds a cure.

And unfortunately, the serum seems to be making him cruel, violent and psychotic -- he uses his invisibility to spy on his increasingly paranoid team, including his ex-girlfriend Linda (Elisabeth Shue) and her new boyfriend. And to stop the team from warning the military about the danger he poses, he's willing to trap and kill them one by one...

"The Hollow Man" is the loosest possible interpretation of "The Invisible Man" -- the only thing that connects them is an invisibility serum that makes you crazy and evil. But while there was only ONE scientist doing stupid things in H.G. Wells' story, this movie has SEVERAL scientists doing stupid things. A lot of stupid things.

Format:DVD
Kind of a modern take on the invisible man, the science fiction thriller Hollow Man (2000) follows a team of scientists developing a cutting edge technology, which eventually leads down a dark and violent road. Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers, Robocop, Total Recall) capably directs what is basically a mad scientist creating a monster tale. Hollow Man combines a B-movie storyline with absolutely first class production values, and breathtaking special effects, that are still impressive today. The movie takes some time to explore the situation, before it goes berserk and becomes an action thriller overdriven with special effects.

Dr. Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon) has developed a serum that has successfully rendered animal subjects invisible. With the help of his team headed by doctors Linda McKay (Elisabeth Shue) and Matt Kensington (Josh Brolin), Caine makes a breakthrough, successfully restoring an invisible gorilla.

Working on a government sanctioned project, in a top secret underground lab near Washington D.C., Caine hides his success from a Senate committee overseeing the project. Determined to test the serum on a human subject, Caine injects himself with the serum, and after nearly dying in the process, does become invisible. Unfortunately the serum that is supposed to make Sebastian visible again fails, and again nearly kills him.

The frustration of not being able to return to normal, seems to make Caine mentally unstable, and eventually violent. He is also upset that his ex-lover Linda, is now romantically involved with Matt. To try and get Caine back under control, the couple reports what has been happening to their superior in the government, but Caine murders him before he can take action.
