Product Description

Ryan Kwanten of TV s True Blood stars in this charming, quirky and totally unpredictable romantic comedy about the superhero in all of us. Griff , a shy and awkward office worker by day, finds escape from his ordinary life by assuming the identity of a fantastic superhero each night. Griff s secret is jeopardized when he meets Melody, a cute but unconventional daydreamer. She quickly becomes fascinated by his idiosyncrasies, which are equaled only to her own.

Amazon.com

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten puts his Louisiana accent aside for this offbeat return to his Australian roots. Kwanten plays Griff, a Sydney customer-liaison agent by day who dons a rubber superhero suit by night in actor-turned-director Leon Ford's sweet, semi-surrealistic romantic comedy. If Griff proves successful in his self-appointed role as nocturnal protector, no one ever thanks him for his services, but he persists in the belief that it's his responsibility (Ford suggests that these successes may all be in his head). Furthermore, his office coworkers are a shallow lot, especially Tony (Toby Schmitz), who bullies him for sport, so Griff goes it alone until his brother, Tim (Patrick Brammall), introduces him to his sort-of-girlfriend Melody (Maeve Dermody, projecting equal parts warmth and beauty), a hardware store clerk who lives with her parents, believes in parallel worlds, and describes herself as an experimentalist. Melody pursues Griff, despite her mother's entreaties to stick with Tim in hopes that marriage will result. Meanwhile, Griff becomes obsessed with invisibility after his boss tells him he's too visibly uncomfortable with his colleagues. When Melody discovers his secret life, she helps him to construct an outfit designed to evade detection, but by getting involved, she only encourages the delusion that he's more special than everyone else--including her. If Griff the Invisible begins in cuteness and quirk, it ends in a more emotionally believable place. Extras include a featurette, video diary, and set tour, plus deleted scenes and commentary from Ford, Brammall, and cowriter Nicole O'Donohue. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

By day Griff has the usual office job where he is bullied by his workmates and is only ever visited by his brother who tries to make Griff conform to society. By night Griff takes on the alternate persona as the town's superhero protecting the city streets. Griff is invisible to the world until he meets his brother's new girlfriend, Melody who turns Griff's life upside down with her eccentricities that only match his own.

Griff the Invisible is a very touching story that blends the lines between reality and illusion that is definitely worth at least one watch and I would highly recommend it. The story isn't too similar but if you like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind this movie is definitely worth a chance.

This is a really great movie, it's not a Kick Ass style average guy putting on a superhero suit and fighting criminals movie, although if you stumbled onto it after it just started on TV or something you might think so at first. It's about a socially awkward man who has the mindset of a child at times but is also at least in his mind a genius. He doesn't have any friends and believes this is so, as he would put them in danger since his destiny is to fight criminals in his neighbourhood. However his older brother has moved back from Adelaide after a past event we don't learn much about but has something to do with his crime fighting and that he also was being bullied where he used to work. His brother has through a friend gotten him an office job and randomly pops in with surprise visits to Griff's home to keep encouraging and somewhat demanding he keeps acting normally. He interrogates Griff about his job and Griff hides the fact he is constantly being harassed and tormented by a bully and the girl he is having an affair with, while the other office workers turn a blind eye, including his so called brother's friend. One day the brother mentions, Melody, a girl he's met, and brings her by on a surprise visit. Melody doesn't seem to like the way the brother is talking about her as if they are about to get married, and even less how he talks down Griff. She sees something in Griff, she doesn't see his behaviour as wrong and tries to strike up a friendship, but Griff is worried his brother won't like it and that Melody will be in danger from Griff's calling to fight evil criminals if he lets her hand around. Griff has his own plans to deal with the office bully, and while at home is trying to perfect his suit that turns him invisible to help him fight crime.Read more ›

It's tough to relate how excited I was getting while watching this. Is it as good as I think it is or is it somehow connecting with something in me that doesn't allow me to see its faults? One way or the other I liked it tremendously.

Here's the scoop. Griff is a very mild mannered person by day, performing some nondescript job in some nondescript office. He has an array of sophisticated monitoring gear to keep an eye on his neighborhood. If he sees evil doers doing evil, he gets into his superhero suit and takes care of business. It seems he's had some trouble with this in the past and his older brother is present to make certain that doesn't happen again. Griff falls for his bro's kind-of girlfriend, and she for him. Doo-doo hits the fan.

Where to begin. The characters. I liked the way they were written. Griff is so mild mannered during the day it hurts seeing him get the smelly end of the stick at the hand of his workmate. Melody. She sees the world differently than most others and she feels alone because of it. But she sees the real Griff and knows this might be her shot at happiness. Griff's brother Tim means well, but he doesn't realize what a dweeb he really is. Melody's parents mean well. They have good hearts, but they don't have a clue where their daughter is coming from. I liked the way all these people interact with each other.

Then there's the story. This unfolded for me really well. I liked the way the plot was doled out. It kept me in the game, but the third act sprouted some dark things that scared me. How much of this was really happening and how much was delusion concocted by people who simply cannot come to terms with the day to day existence we all have to put up with? Yes we're happy the two have found one another but at what expense?

Don't get me wrong, I like Ryan kwanten as an actor, I've a few of his other movies but about half way or less through this movie, I got the feeling he did not make this one with me in mind. I do hope that he enjoyed making it though, and maybe someone else can and will enjoy and benefit for his effort.

This movie has great acting and a great story. The two main characters are the type of people we don't normally get to see in films, and this was one of the reasons I loved the movie so much. Another thing that stands out to me is that the characters retain these weird personalities right through the end of the movie; which is kind of comforting. (In other movies you might see this type of character being changed into a 'normal' person by the end of the movie).

Ryan Kwanten really did a great job and was completely believable as a strange and meek type of person. I was very surprised at his performance since I'm used to seeing him in True Blood as a completely different type of character.

The music in this movie is OUTSTANDING. I kept finding myself making mental notes to look up what artist sang this song or that song. I wish there was a soundtrack I could buy from this movie.

I definitely recommend this movie if you are tired of the same old same old romantic comedies coming out of Hollywood lately.
