Max finds a sort of magic mirror on his birthday. It can make him become invisible and he and his friends start playing a game with it. Soon Max realizes that he is losing control over invisibility and it takes longer every time to come back. Will the next invisibility be permanent? Written by
Some kids have fun with a mirror in this fairly enjoyable tale from the Goosebumps series. It's a mirror that allows the person looking into it to become invisible. Great. Sounds like lots of fun, right? Unfortunately, it becomes harder and harder to become visible again after using it a few times. There's a chance that the mirror may have an agenda.
Directed by Ron Oliver, and written by Rick Drew, this is a tale that mixes some fun elements into an unsurprisingly fun end result. Invisibility is always good, and mirrors can always hint at something potentially sinister, with their reflected worlds that are just like our own . . . . . . but different.
The cast all do well enough, with Jonathan Schwartz and Flora Chu playing Max and his friend, Erin, while a young Kevin Zegers plays Noah (Max's brother).
I wouldn't say it's one of the best of the bunch, but it's a decent enough time-waster and should keep the intended audience perfectly entertained.
