The Invisible



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

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.

They should have called this Perturbia.

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

Yes, it's a great premise, but the execution was very weak.

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.

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.

Super Reviewer


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.
