Storyline

Nick Powell is an excellent high-school student who raises money by selling homework and results of quizzes to his schoolmates. He aims to travel to London for a writer's course - telling his best friend, Pete Egan, that he has already bought the airplane ticket but he has not told to his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes money to her. As events unfold, due to a case of mistaken identity Nick takes a severe beating from Annie and her gang, his body dumped in a sewer. The next morning, he discovers he cannot be seen - he is now a spirit in a state of limbo and can only observe as the events of that day unfold. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Diane Powell: It wasn't easy when Nick's father died, raising a teenager alone. But with a boy like Nick, well, he is now everything a mother could want. We've been through some hard times. We've carried each other. Now I look to the future, and I know there's nothing that we can't do together.

Makes "Ghost" look like a masterpiece
10 November 2007 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

This remake of a Swedish thriller has got to be among the messiest movies I've ever seen. Nothing here is right. Nothing at all. There is no tension whatsoever. Every scene drags on and on and on. The characters are so clichéd, it's unbelievable: there's the intelligent, quiet main character who writes real "deep" (read: sappy) poetry and befriends only the losers of his school although he himself is pretty much the coolest guy there. Then we have the rebellious girl who is really the sweetest and most caring person, only she grew up in a bad environment, oh, and her mommy died, so you see she's basically been driven to act all criminal and wear a silly hat all the time. I could go on, but I guess you get my point.

The dialog is annoying, certain plot points that are set up never amount to anything, the acting sucks and the soundtrack is filled with Emo-crap that mirrors the whiny cant of the main characters. The movie struggles hard to deliver the same kind of teenage angst as "Donnie Darko" but fails to even match the quality of "Ghost", a movie from which the biggest part of this story has obviously been lifted. And if all that wasn't enough, "The Invisible" goes on for no less than 2 hours. 2 hours (!) of pure boredom and annoyance.

So, no, I really didn't enjoy this movie at all. Not one bit. And I don't think anyone else can. Just stay far away from this trainwreck, that deserved the more appropriate title "The Unbearable".
