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 his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes her money. 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.

pretty well done movie
27 October 2007 | by daniel-younger-1See all my reviews

The Invisible was actually something of a surprise to me. I saw the previews in theatres and thought "right, thriller, wait for DVD." so I did. And I had been told several times that it wasn't that great either.

In spite of this I rented it. I wasn't expecting much, but overall, it did pretty well. The concept was pretty interesting, the acting was actually very good.

It did have its moments of following a sort of CSI-type blueprint, and other pretty archetypical concepts of a thriller movie. It wasn't anything outstandingly original.

My biggest problem with it was the lack of subplot development. The whole relationship between him and his girlfriend was completely underdone and towards the end just faded away... It seemed too often that The Invisible was trying to string too many subplots together and ultimately just ended up grazing over most of them which is a disappointment.

But overall, it was a pretty well done move. Good Acting, good script, pretty good soundtrack as well.

And someone said something about the soundtrack being "indie"? I'm sorry, but most of those songs have experience pretty heavy radio play, and there isn't anything pretentious about putting popular music into a movie, that's a good thing.
