Another stinker from Paul Verhoeven. A promising young scientist tests an invisibility serum on himself and promptly turns into a psychotic pervert who strangely seems to also become nigh on indestructible in a Jason Voorhees style way. Badly written, ugly effects and nonsensically plotted.

Why does invisibility make people unstable and dangerous. I'd think it'd be fun. Kevin Bacon's naked body.

Plays like a more violent version of the Invisible Man. Mostly a showcase of special effects, rather than a full fledged film.

I guess naming it 'Shallow' Man is be too obvious?

Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi thriller has really cool special effects and one diabolically evil performance by Kevin Bacon as a hotshot scientist who makes himself invisible only to go mad with power. Because of course he does.
Elizabeth Shue is actually quite good as the heroine who has to stop his reign of terror, showing action chops and holding her own against Bacon's scene chewing. Josh Brolin is woefully uninteresting as the designated 'good guy' scientist and Shue's love interest but as Kevin Bacon himself observes correctly, he's so boring.
The premise may just be a $100M remake of Invisible Man but the premise starts out strong and the high tech lab setting looks cool. But most of the cast aside from Bacon and Shue are thoroughly uninteresting ans sometimes downright unlikable.

Kevin Bacon at his devilish best....

What would you do if you had the possibility to be invisible? Would you save the world? Or would you...go insane?

Kevin Bacon plays Sebastian Caine, an egotistical but brilliant scientist who is working on a serum to make living things invisible. He works on this project with his ex-girlfriend Linda McKay (Elisabeth Shue) and Matthew Kensington (Josh Brolin) her secret lover and insists on being the first human guinea pig for the project, ever mindful of the glory angle. Problems arise when Sebastian is made invisible and discovers his process to be made visible again failed.

Kevin Bacon always seems to play a great bad guy and it is no difference here when because of his tampering with Nature and his gradual seduction by the power he controls, he finally gets his just desserts when...

Think You're Alone? Think Again.

I thought this film was pretty good. Unfortunately, somewhere along the lineit turns in to a predictable B-grade slasher. This could, and should, have been much better than it is. They ran out of ideas and decided to just kill everyone off and have it end in huge explosions, showing a total lack of creativity. The only great thing about this movie is the special effects but it may not be enough to distract the viewer from all the negative points of the movie.

That being said I do care for this film, it's one of my many guility pleasures movies and I'll recommend veiwing it for the action, suspense, and amazing effects for it's time. Even if the movie is lacking in plot. Hollow man is not the worst choice you could make, it delivers most of what you expect from an enjoyable action thril...
