Movie Info

This appallingly bad sci-fi film about an invisible bank-robber (Douglas Kennedy) was shot back-to-back with Beyond the Time Barrier on the grounds of the Texas State Fair in Dallas. The usual cackling and crime is included, most of which was done better in The Invisible Man. Marguerite Chapman is the film's one bright spot as Kennedy's lowlife girlfriend, but the rest of the characters are annoying and unsympathetic. Unpleasant, downbeat, and badly produced, it is hard to see the appeal of this

Even something this ridiculous has its inventive charms, not least of which are the wonderfully chintzy invisibility effects.

One of Ulmer's grimmest works, a heartfelt anti-war statement

Audience Reviews for The Amazing Transparent Man

From the Mill Creek SciFi Clsddics Collection. The Amazing Transparent Man is very similar to The Invisible Man and one main difference with this movie is that involves the Atomic Age, radiation etc.

A criminal who has escaped from prison is made invisible by a mad scientist and gets him to steal nuclear fuel to help with future experiments. Things go wrong when he robs a bank though as becomes visible and is also dying through radiation poisoning.

This movie has some good special effects considering the low budget. Highlights include the "one man" fights.

The cast includes Douglas Kennedy (The Land Unknown) and Marguerite Chapman (Flight To Mars).

The Amazing Transparent Man is worth watching if you get the chance. A great way to spend just under an hour. 3 1/2 Stars 5-10-13

While the premise is intriguing (although done way better in The Invisible Man from 1933) the film slowly descends into second rate science fiction slog. The film still had some decent effects for the disappearing act but not much else going for it. There are much better sci-fi films both after and before this one with much greater premises and lasting appeal! Skip it unless your desperate for a sci-fi film and have no better options.
