The invisible man.. my review
He maybe invisible but not untouchable from my review
Ok so this film were so I begin, it is oh so very predictable honestly it starts with the villains girlfriend Cecilia’s fleeing, and it is this that sends the abusive, sociopathic, and overly possessive Griffin (our main antagonist) into a spiral of pure deranged, and utter manipulative path of pure sociopathic and possessive REVENGE!!!. he does this by faking his own suicide and then having his brother getting involved to collaborate his story, and then he dons a suit lined with billions of tiny cameras so as to physically disappear from the whole world, and then he sets of on his plan to gaslight his ex who for her perceived “betrayal” of him. Honestly credit were credit is due I think this movie does a great great great job of portraying the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that many abuse victims go thru after they escaped there abusive relationships, and this movie very cleverly combined the hollow man-esque science with abuse victim mentality and remake of a black and white horror film and u got a recipe for a genius film.
Now all that being said this movie is far from perfect and it’s build up time is what kills it, why the build up time u ask?? Well dear reader because this movies focus on the build up WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAYYYYYYYYYYY TO MUCH I mean most of the first and second act was nothing but build up with a few jump scares in between to try and get you to stay interested and not walk out of the film to refill your popcorn solely to get some more entertaining visuals than buildup after buildup... YAWN!!. But it wasn’t until act 3 that things really start to pick up and it becomes a fully watchable film I mean most of the scenes u see in the trailer are from act three which once again proves my point of NEVER TRUST THE TRAILERS!!!!!!!!!.
And also I’d like to point out at one point in the film she says he is sitting in the chair and the cops can’t see him but there are very freaking clear indentations in the chair that indicate someone is in it that were not there 3 seconds ago and no one in that room was in that chair but the supposed “smart” cops didn’t use there heads, seriously Hollywood if your gonna write cops.....make them smart, I mean yes there was one smart cop and even he doesn’t catch on till the 3rd act and by then you as the audience just want the movie to be over BADLY!!!!!!!. But ya this movie over-all in my opinion was a big bust, it wasn’t scary, it wasn’t thrilling, it focused way to much on build up, its twist was predictable, and it was just the stereotype of frighten abuse victim and abuser makes all people who actually been thru that stuff look bad, so over-all on a scale of 1-10 I’d give this film a 1.3 and that’s just because it clearly tried.... and it just oh so utterly failed, points for trying tho Hollywood, points for trying.
