Dull and confusing execution makes this ghost story utterly forgettable and unintentionally funny.

A severely beaten teenager, trapped in a walking purgatory between life and death, must help authorities to the location of his broken body before it's too late in this remake of the 2002 Swedish thriller Den Osynlige. Graduating senior Nick Powell (Justin Chatwin) has plans to attend a prestigious writing workshop in London, despite the protests of his widowed mother (Marcia Gay Harden). In the days before his departure, he gets into a cafeteria brawl with a delinquent classmate, Annie Newton

My screening presented the final reel upside down and backward; no difference whatsoever.

Director David S. Goyer doesn't get half the skin-crawling mileage out of the ghost factor that he could. As a result, The Invisible really isn't worth seeing.

The drama never comes together in a smart, meaningful way; indeed, most revelations border on the banal.

If anything, the movie is too introspective, to the point that it doesn't build enough conflict or tension.

Director David S. Goyer turned the familiar sights of our fair city into a seething battleground for vampires in 2004's Blade: Trinity, but his latest Vancouver-shot supernatural flick doesn't have nearly as much bite.

There are some interesting ideas afoot, but there's also a struggle as to which to direction it wants to head.

A mash-up of Ghost and The O.C. with a point-of-view directed with uncompromising resolve at the protagonist's navel.

The Invisible plays like a self-indulgent adolescent wish-fulfillment fantasy.

Thought-provoking, philosophical and always interesting, "The Invisible" is likely to remain that way, particular when Spidey swings on to the big screen. It's too bad that this well-wrought, intelligent movie may not find an audience %u2013 perhaps a DVD

The Invisible lives down to its name--this is a visually forgettable flick. More subpar than supernatural.

Never manages to dig out any real depth; rather, it feels like it was adapted straight from a paean to adolescent woes scrawled by a tenth grader in a spiral notebook.

Teen angst is teen angst whether it's DOA or MIA, and c'mon, if you really want to go all Swede-emo on us, you're always going to run up against the immovable cinematic woegasm that was Ingmar Bergman. Never a smart move, that.

Audience Reviews for The Invisible

The same characters, locales (and target demographics) as the Twilight series ... but a ghost is the supernatural tie-in instead of vampires. Teen angst, misunderstanding, and a alt music soundtrack work to build to a crescendo of blossoming love that doesn't bear scrutiny nor was intended to.

Surprising with it's lack of emotional distance, and excessive violence and hostility, Chatwin is a perfect teenager going through an out of body experience, and Margarita Levieva is a rising star through the sensibilities she comes to terms with, and the path she knows she must tred. Imaginative as well.

Pofaced nonsense which takes itself way too seriously but crushily makes up then brakes its internal logic for the afterlife at will which destroyed any suspension of disbelieve. It stumbles along predictably and I only kept watching to see if it got more unbelievable.

    1. Nick Powell: Do you remember when my dad died? The first thing she said to me was, don't worry about it Nick, this won't change a thing for you. I'm like 13 right, all I want to do is cry, and she's thinking about my future? She's always had it mapped out. You know I stay here, I might as well retire and die. I mean my dad didn't even get to retire, he was 46 when he got sick. I'm not going to let her do that to me.
