Storyline

Facing life without parole for a crime he ultimately didn't commit, crook Darien Fawkes is offered a pardon if he'll agree to participate in his brother's medical experiment: the insertion into his brain of a synthetic gland which secretes a light-bending substance called Quicksilver, which renders whoever or whatever is cloaked in it invisible. But Quicksilver also breaks down Darien's sanity without the regular injection of a counter-agent, and when terrorists gun down everyone involved in the project and steal all the relevant information, Darien is recruited by the experiment's backers, an ultra-secret and under-funded intelligence agency subsidized by the Department of Fish and Game, to stop the terrorists, avenge his brother's death, and get a fresh hit of the counter-agent.

Quotes

Darien Fawkes: A schmuck named Nietzsche once wrote: 'Anything that's done out of love is beyond good and evil.' Now, here's the thing: I love my job. So what does that make me? My feeling always was, good and evil could kiss my ass. But one night... well, they kinda got together and bit me on it.

An Interesting Low Budget Movie for TV
14 July 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Yesterday I watched this movie on DVD. This story explains the origin of the "Invisible Man". I have never paid attention to this USA Channel series, however, at least this (pilot) movie is very good. Although being a low budget movie for TV, the effects are great and the story is entertaining. Many dialogs are ironic and there is at least a scene that honors H.G. Wells's character: when Darien Fawkes and 'Bobby' Hobbes go to a Mexican bar and there is a poster of the H.G. Wells's "Invisible Man" behind the counter, on the back of the attendant. My vote is seven.

Title(Brazil): "O Homem Invisível" ("The Invisible Man")
