My partner has just advanced to the point where she actually wants to be scared by a movie and Hollow Man was advertised as being just the job. Sadly this movie failed entirely to do anything except warrant an early escape - which we didn't as we'd paid good money. This film reaches cliched depths other films merely pretend to with each line being boringly predictable and the characters obviously less aware of the fragile plot line than we were. The movie reaches an inevitable and horribly obvious conclusion without ever bothering to explain the science behind the idea. But with the 'scientists' regularly dishing out pseudo scientific howlers you wonder why the producers don't bother to pay a real scientist to at least make it sound believable. Oh well, maybe 'What Lies Beneath' will do it for my partner.
But as often happens, there is a good point and it is a very good point. The special effects are highly imaginative and perfectly photographed. If nothing else, and there really isn't anything else, I'd go see this film for the FX - or maybe just wait for it to hit the smaller screen and use your money more wisely.
