Invisible Man for the 2000s
on August 3, 2013
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!
