This has such potential - as did the original. Probably most haunting part of the film was the start titles.
A man who is invisible would probably - carefully - violate some women, steal a lot of cash and then try to reverse the invisible process. Not this one, there is the token semi naked woman scene and before you know it the invisible man has gone off his rocker and is killing everybody.
This film had the usual tiresome sub plot of the jealous ex-lover who is consumed with rage etc. etc. Plus the usual 20 seconds of exposed breasts is Hollywood an anagram for yawn?
As with so many films nowadays most of the action is computer generated, and drawn out. Idiotic implausible explosions and heroes who are not quite totally harmed. 2 out of 10.
