Under-Rated Comedy from John Carpenter
14 January 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Memoirs of an Invisible Man is an Under-Rated Comedy from classic genre director John Carpenter, it has Chevy Chase in the title role with fine support from Sam Neil who is Chase's Nemeisis Darryl Hannah is the love interest who look's great in the role ten years after blade runner. the critics may of been harsh upon the film when it was released but like many John Carpenter film's (witness the terrific The Thing')it later found it's audience via video and DVD. the special visual effects by industrial light and magic still stand out today especially the matte paintings. all in all it's an enjoyable film although don't be expecting an all out effect's extravaganza like his previous works as this is more or less light hearted which is fine it's unfortunate that Carpenter's track record has never produced anything memorable since.
