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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

While this is a German import version of this film in HD, don't discount it. This disk fully contains the English soundtrack (in among other languages). While it may not have all of the bells and whistles of a US Blu-Ray release, it does appear to be the only Blu-Ray / HD version of this film out there. Why it hasn't been released on Blu-Ray in the US is anyone's guess. The transfer quality of this film is actually better than I had expected considering that this is not a US Blu-Ray release.

Granted, this is not the best film ever made. Casting Chevy Chase was completely questionable considering it isn't intended to be a comedy. The chemistry between Daryl Hannah and Chevy Chase just didn't really work. And, it has its share of story flaws. But, the invisibility effects are still pretty amazing. For invisibility films, it's definitely one of the top films in that genre and definitely one of the better films to step it up for invisibility effects. The only other recent films that have done an equal job with effects is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen [Blu-ray] and Hollow Man: Director's Cut [Blu-ray].

If you're looking for a high def version of this film to complete your invisibility or John Carpenter collection, this is the version to get.. at least until a US version of this movie is released to Blu-Ray.

Note...

I should mention that there's a big 6 printed on the front of the package. I thought that might have something to do with region encoding. However, I was able to play this disk on my computer which had no troubles reading it.
