Not bad, considering your usually straight to DVD release. (by DarkVulcan29)
An alright sequel that really stands on its own. This sequel makes little a note to the first one, remember the one with Kevin Bacon. But other then that this movie stands on its own. This movie begins with a crazed invisible man named Michael Griffin Christian Slater , who is on the war path to get an antidote for him. He will stop at nothing, and kill anyone that gets in his way. His trails lead up to Dr. Maggie Dalton Laura Reagen , she soon seeks protection with Detective Frank Turner Peter Facinelli . But a certain government starts to hunt them both, cause they want to cover up what has <more>
happened to Griffin. Christian Slater was awesome in his performance has the mad invisible man. Peter Facinelli and Laura Reagen were also good. This movie had a great storyline, and great effects, and not to mention great suspense also.
First I must say that I am a big Paul Verhoeven fan and when I heard that he was directing Hollow Man with Kevin Bacon who I am also a big fan of I was really excited. I do not need to remind people of how terrible Hollow Man turned out to be. But this direct-to-video sequel, Hollow Man II, directed by Claudio Faeh and executive produced by Verhoeven, is actually really good. So good in fact that I am looking forward to the third installment of the franchise. The special effects, production value, performances and storyline are just as good if not better than most high-budget theatrical <more>
studio films. Christian Slater makes a great bad guy but what I enjoyed most was Peter Facinelli as the hero. Who knew -- Peter is a great action hero. This is by far the best direct-to-video horror/thriller film that I have seen in a long time. It makes me think that maybe Paul Verhoeven should hang up his hat as a director and oversee the sequels to his better films, Robocop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers. There is no argument that those franchises need as much help as they can get.
While not the best movie ever made, I found the sequel to "Hollow Man" to be very entertaining. It kept my interest going except through one part a chase scene which seemed too long to me. This is based on the original book "The Invisible Man" by H.G. Wells. You can read the entire book starting here: http://www.bartleby.com/1003/1.html . Solid acting was the trait throughout the whole caste which helped to keep the almost thin plot going and believable. Christian Slater as Michael Griffin, Peter Facinelli as Det. Frank Turner, and Laura Regan as Dr. Maggie Dalton all <more>
played their parts very well. 8/10Also some very clever ... things happened ... which gave the movie a "notch up." : -LD_____________________________________________my faith: http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/jbc33
Invisible men don't have to be blind (by Piotr_Kuras)
It is not true that invisible men have to blind. It it true that light passes through the retina of an invisible man, but in most "invisible man" movies I've seen one way of locating an invisible man is using night-vision goggles witch show the sub-red part of electromagnetic spectrum. This fact suggests that whatever turned him invisible, it rendered him hollow only to so called visible part of electromagnetic spectrum with wavelenght between 380 and 780 nm. Shifting the range of wavelenght sight to sub-red 780nm to 1mm during the process of making invisible could produce a <more>
proper seeing or even better invisible man.And last but not least the invisibility in James Bond "Die Another Day" works only from a long distance and uniform background. Otherwise changing the point of view will uncover hidden object.
