5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, sad that nobody saw it. August 31, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is the movie that established Chevy Chase as a serious actor. It's a pity nobody was watching. Chevy Chase plays Nick Halloway, a solitary man made invisible by a freak accident. Chevy does an incredible job conveying the horror of being completely unnoticed, and puts a dark, and credible spin on a rather outlandish plot. Sam Neil is the CIA agent that wants him for his 'gifts'. Like always, Sam hits it dead on. Daryl Hannah covers the love intrest, and plays the part to satisfaction, although it's fairly obvious she didn't land the part becuase of her acting talents. Special effects were the best for the time, and aren't dated to the point were they distract from the story. The plot is strong, and ever-present, and the direction is excellent thanks to John Carpenter. I strongly suggest everyone give this one a chance. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated movie! November 13, 2003
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this movie when it came out and was quite surprised by all the bad reviews. I had read the book several years before I saw the movie and thought they did a great job of transfering it to film.
The funny thing is that most reviews criticize the film makers for their wierd story choices, but the film was just following the book.
Others criticize that the movie doesn't know whether to be a comedy, action thiller or an adventure story? The book was the same way and I thought the book and film did a great job of juggling these different styles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Clever, Highly underated, Highly enjoyable November 15, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
John Carpenter takes a welcome change of pace with this invisible man movie that bring great new ideas to the genre. (best of all being that chevys clothes become invisible too so he doesn't have to walk around naked) Chevy Chase is suprisingly beleivable in the title role and Sam Neil is great as a rouge CIA agent. As you probably quessed, the special effects are also brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely touching March 22, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie is indeed underrated, and perhaps largely unknown due more to its relatively low budget than to its concept or execution. Chevy Chase is strangely touching portraying in dramatic tones a character caught in what would at first seem a purely comedic situation. Nick Holloway's predicament is well-realized and well thought-out, and many of the special effects - though not elaborate - are both humorous and intriguing. Darrell Hannah is her usual sensuous and beautiful self. Well worth a watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Highly Underated Movie! September 12, 2003
Format:DVD
This film I consider is the ultimate "Invisible Man" film. Carpenter had alot of grace and love for this film obviously and Chase's portrail of a stock broker turned invisible fugitive was just right. Chase tends to get alot of heckeling for this movie and his performance but this reviewer finds that same performance to be one of great effort (note his quiet aproch to dramatic situations and his fine comic timing to humorious ones). This film I thought had alot more to do with character and emotions than most filmakers would try on an "Invisible Man" project. One thing's for sure....this movie sure beats the heck outta "Hollow Man" (a movie that made the "Invisible Man" into a phsyco plus the whole movie just had a 2nd rate slasher vibe).

3.0 out of 5 stars Finally coming to DVD June 5, 2003
Format:DVD
The last John Carpenter film to be released on DVD, "Memoirs of an Invisible Man" bombed at the box office during it's early 90's theatrical run. Shame too as it's a better film than some think.
The special effects were outstanding, and Sam Neill stole the show as the villian. Chevy Chase tries his best but even semi-dramatic roles are just not his thing.
The DVD will be 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen (as all Carpenter films should be presented), and will have a behind-the-scenes featurette, outtakes, and the film's trailer. The sad thing is, no Carpenter commentary track. Why Warner Brothers never bothered to ask Carpenter to take part, we can only guess.Buy this DVD and complete your John Carpenter collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Invisibility never had it so bad . . . April 6, 2009
Format:DVD
It's a bit depressing that many people on the world have not seen Memoirs of an Invisible Man. But chances are this might turn into a phenomenal cult hit sometime in the future. We can only hope.

This is another extravagant film by John Carpenter. Here, we get to see the disadvantages of having invisibility. It may sound fun, but in real life, you'll very well regret it if you really have it. Chevy Chase moves away from the comedic genre, and gives us a pretty believable performance as the man who we can't see. Sam Neill is the antagonist that everyone would just love to hate. Daryl Hannah is Chevy's love interest, though her good looks make up for her mediocre acting abilities. The special effects are very impressive, even if it was made in 1992.

This is one heck of a good film. Even if it's not as great as other films that mix humor with suspense and drama, I still enjoyed it. Fans of Chevy Chase, Sam Neill, and John Carpenter should never stop and think if they should see this or not.

Grade: A

4.0 out of 5 stars Check out this movie! November 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of Chevy Chase's lost movies. The special effects are great, and the plot keeps your attention. I don't know why so few people have seen it; it truly is an underrated film. Go rent this movie and check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars John Carpenter's One Stand True Sci-Fi / Comedy
I love John Carpenter's work from the 70's through the 80's, and some 90's. This movie stands alone in his work. It's not horror. It's sci-fi and perhaps a comedy. Read more

There would be a lot of ways to go wrong on this theme... they got it right... probably because Chase was the perfect casting decision.
