Editorial Reviews

What would you do if you were invisible? How far would you go? After years of experimentation, Dr. Sebastian Caine, a brilliant but arrogant and egotistical scientist working for the Defense Department, has successfully transformed mammals to an invisible state and brought them back to their original physical form. Determined to achieve the ultimate breakthrough, Caine instructs his team to move on to Phase III: human experimentation. Using himself as the first subject, the invisible Caine finds himself free to do the unthinkable. But Caine's experiment takes an unexpected turn when his team can't bring him back. As the days pass, he grows more and more out of control, doomed to a future without flesh as the HOLLOW MAN. Kevin Bacon, Elisabeth Shue and Josh Brolin star in this intense thriller filled with extreme suspense, terrifying twists and incredible special effects.

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.

There's something highly watchable about a crazy Kevin Bacon. His demeanour in this film is generally a bit creepy, and it's great to see him evolve into a cold-blooded killer throughout the film. Great special effects for its day and I loved how they focused a lot on the science of invisibility.

I'm not a fan of Josh Brolin, I found his character annoying, but his presence was necessary for the final battle between Bacon and Shue. Elizabeth Shue's character was semi-Ripley in nature; strong, independent, intelligent and has a killer instinct. She's almost the ultimate character (though, she was highly feminised at times). The special effects were great, particularly the parts where Bacon is burnt to a crisp (no pun intended) and we see his quasi-invisible scabbed flesh. Awesome!

This film is definitely worth owning, it never gets boring, and because I don't like Brolin, it's good to see him get his butt whooped!

Sebastian Caine is a brilliant yet arrogant scientist working on a top secret mission for the U.S. government to unlock the secret to human invisibility. After creating a serum that induces invisibility in laboratory animals, he disobeys Pentagon orders by trying the serum on himself. Though it works, the effects are irreversible. While his chief lieutenants Linda McKay and Matt Kensington try frantically to counteract the effect, Caine becomes increasingly intoxicated by his new found power. Not only do his latent megalomaniac tendencies begin to emerge, they get stronger the longer he remains invisible as he begins to perceive all efforts to cure him as a threat to his very existence. 'Hollow Man' is a creepy nail-biter. This movie is one of the best psychological thrillers, with fantastic special effects.

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.
