Not to be confused with the Billy Bob Thorton movie of the same name.
11 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is not bad at all. This movie is not to be confused with the Billy Bob Thorton movie of the same name. Even if Alexa Hamilton is in the movie that would be a terrific idea. At least this movie does not show an invisible woman putting on stockings like in the 1940 Invisible Woman movie. This movie also does not show an invisible woman putting on pantyhose like in the 1983 Invisible Woman. I think this movie should be out on DVD and Blue Ray in both 3-D and 2-D versions. Apparently this movie is not on DVD and Blue Ray. I think that this movie should be re released back into movie theatres in enhanced digital picture and digital sound. Overall, this movie is not bad and fair to me.
