Hard to get into...
9 April 2001 | by SchlockmeisterSee all my reviews

This movie has the problem of having little or no sympathetic characters. Except for the villagers and the constables, everyone seems crooked in their own way. This leaves you not caring at all about who is the victim or the victimizer. So you are left with a movie that is just fun to watch to see how it was all done. When I get to where I am paying more attention to the technical aspects of a movie instead of enjoying the story, it really did not engage me. As far as special effects go, it was okay, I suppose by 1944 standards. A little lazy in many places though. Matte silhouettes are frequently seen and wires are clear in the scene where a man is supposedly lifted by the invisible man. I say it is lazy because, judging from the earlier invisible man movies, better effects were definately available, they just seem glossed over here. The "money shot" of the movie appears to be a scene where the invisible man plunges his hand into a fish tank and then splashes water on his face to become visible. That's it basically, the scene appears pretty early on and there will be no scene comparable to it, so the movie plays it's hand too early. That scene in the very last sequence would have left the audience with something to talk about as they left. It's not the best Invisible Man movie, not the absolute worst, worth watching if only for people who must see all of a series.
