I normally don't like to trash on people's God given looks but Elizabeth Moss was NOT the right actress for this movie. It was just too hard to believe that this rich and powerful man at the top of his field would want to control such an ugly woman. It made the whole thing unbelievable and we stopped watching. I feel bad for saying it but it's the truth.
Was on the edge of my seat, especially at the end.
Probably the best horror film of the year
This was pretty bad. A dull and shallow bastarization of a classic work by lazy filmmakers. Yes, Moss was badly miscast...and yes, appearance and physicality is a huge part of acting including whether a performer is appropriate for a role. This film should please those who don't read books and are very easily entertained.
Gripping and stressful So was it good? It's a scary movie and it scared me Success
Really bad. I have doubts that the filmmakers even read the H.G. Welles story. Anyone who thinks this is great is setting the bar appallingly low.
Exciting and fun. Not the most original movie ever but still loved it. Elisabeth Moss is an amazing actress.
Excellent thriller! A great performance from Moss. A solid screenplay! It's a unique re-imagining of H.G Well's story for a modern audience. The film worked.
solid contemporary re-telling of original classic...several twists and turns to the plot...while you need to suspend reality a bit...film is well constructed and entertaining...
Was ok, somewhat on the edge of my seat but more unbelievable as it went on.
GARBAGE....3/4 of the movie is so slow that my friend and I started to doze off that is how boring it was then towards the end it gets some what exciting. The explanation is lame ....Any one that thinks that this is a GREAT movie they should watch paint dry they would think that as AWESOME.
The acting and suspense was top notch. We really enjoyed it.
The best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Disturbing and thought provoking
Interesting, keeps you guessing
More inane garbage from one of the talentless hacks who inflicted the terrible SAW movies on the world. Throws out any shred of believability, mostly by casting an extremely unattractive actress to play the world's dullest character. Who would be obsessed with such a nothing person???
The movie isn’t bad, it is low budget and it could have been so much Better. Put some makeup on that poor woman. A little more scenery. A lot more tension building. The story had potential. We were Disappointed.
Superb acting and action packed a cliff hanger type of movie.
A disgrace to the original classic.
Elisabeth Moss is spectacular as always and the unexpected twist was thrilling.
This movie is very entertaining with plenty of suspense and a great thriller. The time went by quickly. Don't listen to that negative stuff about this movie because it's false. Obviously people who have disliked it, should just stay home. Enjoy ...
Elizabeth Moss was fabulous on Madmen. She has a Barbara Stanwick sort of vibe. Strong cast - GOOD fonts? Great thriller without the dumb, disposable characters. PS it was the creeps house and I'm sure he had concrete floors and carpet to prepare for his plans.
Excellent film! Music was riveting and would definitely see again.
We are huge movie goers and this was intense and a great film. The score was phenomenal and the storyline was great. Don't listen to the 1 star people. Clearly don't know anything about films. Go and enjoy! Doesn't need to be over analyzed, just enjoy the thrill it takes you on. Definitely see in IMAX.
Based on the trailers alone....HG Wells should haunt the purveyors of this film….these are movie stars? Wouldn't waste $5 on this. The film business is in deep trouble.
great movie - but I'm confused. I don't think I dozed off; but was there another invisible man? I left a little puzzled by the ending.
BOXOFFICE Bill here having returned from the cinema where I saw THE INVISIBLE MAN, a modern remake of the HG Wells masterpiece psychological thriller. In it Cecilia ( Elizabeth Moss) is the gorgeous,virtually enslaved girlfriend of Adrian, a narcissistic psychopath and wealthy industrialist who controls every aspect of her life. Cecilia comes to her senses and bolts, which initiates the meat of the film. Things both incredible and mind-boggling. This film is very well done. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen for a moment, which is why I am awarding it a B+ or 4.5 of 5 stars. Like
Not a bad film by any stretch.
I would call it a taut suspense thriller, not a horror flick. The gentleman who gave it one star & wasted $14, I'm sorry for your loss, but you don't know your fonts - idiot. I don't know what attractiveness has to do with acting - another idiot. When a person writes a lengthy negative review describing all its improbabilities & flaws , when you know there's no such invisible man on earth, that this is science fiction he must be an idiot too. A SHOUT-OUT FOR ALL THE 1* IDIOTS & THEIR IMMATURE, NONSENSICAL REVIEWS. ya gotta lov'm. Ms Moss gave an excellent performance. The movie did what it intended ; keep you on the edge & guessing - even with all its flaws. rh
Lame remake is just another excuse for Hollywood social engineering. Moss has to be one of the most unattractive leading ladies in cinema history.
The scariest movie since Jason went into space. Don't watch this alone!
Fantasy Island blows this out of the water.
see it on a matinee-don't pay full price
Being invisible gives your attributes a +10 sneak and +10 agility .... so stupid👎🏻👎🏻
I liked this movie primarily because the ending was totally unexpected by mean. Perhaps some people might have expected it. I did not. I liked the quality of the script that focused closely on the issues at hand. There was no unnecessary use of profanity. I like to rate my movies by how many times I had to use the restroom. I never left the theatre while the movie was on. Excellent!
I must confess I thought it was poor. 1/5
Very entertaining movie with twists and turns.
At least Van Helsing had Kate Beckinsale to look at; I'd rather watch Tom Cruise in The Mummy again than sit through the ordeal that is The Invisible Man. The original King Kong is back on the big-screen?! When is this happening and what theaters are showing it? Always wanted to see the classic monster movie on the giant motion picture screen!!!
My cousin and I are both in our 60's and loved this movie. They have put out scary movies at the same time, compared to them, The Invisible Man was such a welcome. It cast was great and executed. We need more like it. Fast. Awesome
best horror film of the year
Poor movie, plot holes, lack of depth.
Another needless and inferior remake. Fortunately the original KING KONG is coming to the big screen March 15th to thrill us all anew!
It was obvious thriller from start to finish with brilliant predictability with well timed gore.
Elisabeth Moss is one terrifically talented actor!! She's kind of new at acting but just watch her go up & up. I just LOVE her & will be going to see any & every movie she is featured in!! She did not disappoint in this Invisible Man movie -- had me sitting on the edge of my seat from beginning to end!! I highly recommend anyone to go & enjoy. Truly, some of the ridiculous comments are just that --- ridiculous, & the viewers were clearly not out to enjoy themselves. One even said they left because they didn't like the font at the introduction to the film --- seriously?? Anyone who would let something like a font spoil their entire night will never be happy in life with anything or anyone. Sad that society has become so very hard to please when it comes to some people. Definitely 5 stars from me!!
Awesome movie. I loved the ending. :)
There were multiple times where I said to myself "I didn't see that coming!" Slow @ times but that adds to the buildup. I have never been a fan of Elizabeth Moss but after seeing her in this, I can't think of anyone else to play the role. Well worth seeing even though I'm not a big horror film fan.
Better than that calling all talking wild dogs one
Well fighting an invisible man did look ridiculous. But overall good. Enough plots twists to keep you guessing. Worthy of our $$
