The Invisible Man

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

(spoiler-free movie review)


The Invisible Man will have you looking around seemingly empty rooms with a sense of dread. Director Leigh Whannell expertly creates suspense without the use of a stereotypical “movie monster”. A lingering camera shot on an empty couch or a dark corner of the living room is surprisingly effective at creating tension.

– Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge and Harriet Dyer in The Invisible Man.

Elisabeth Moss gives a phenomenal performance in a role that requires a wide range of emotions. I believed her struggle was real and she portrayed the emotional turmoil, that she was experiencing throughout the movie, flawlessly.

Hollywood has been trying to reboot classic monster movies(without much success) in recent years. The Invisible Man is an excellent example of taking an old story and putting a fresh spin on it.

As good as this movie is, some questionable decision making by Cecilia(Elisabeth Moss) had me scratching my head in disbelief. Also, while effective at setting the tone, the score was fairly generic and forgettable.

Blumhouse delivered another winner with The Invisible Man and I hope to see more classics updated in the near future.

My Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
