The world can make us invisible. Courage can make us incredible. Love can make us invincible. Ryan Kwanten of TV's True Blood stars in this charming, quirky and totally unpredictable romantic comedy about the superhero in all of us.

Struggles heroically, but unsuccessfully, to strike a balance between whimsy and pathos.
Griff seems a little too psychologically damaged to laugh at. On the other hand, for a drama, his behavior is way too silly to take seriously.

Something clicks here. Physically as well as verbally, these kids are speaking their own language.
The touches of magical realism begin to feel gimmicky. By the final frame, this romance never feels real enough.
A superhero wannabe fights the forces of loneliness and alienation in this uneven Aussie indie.
It's a film that asks potent questions about important topics, but will first and foremost charm viewers with its oddball humour and romanticism. Griff the Invisible is a treat.

Mopey-but-sweet Australian entry in the Kick-Ass homemade superhero sweepstakes.
There are moments of pure magic when we actually feel ourselves letting go of the limitations of the real world and find ourselves -- if only for a fleeting moment -- believing in Griff's world.
First-time director Leon Ford has the Australian shaggy dog comedy style down pat; now he just needs an empowering idea.
Audience Reviews for Griff the Invisible
- Melody: I'm not who you think I am.
- Melody: What were you like as a kid?
- Griff: Small?
- Melody: I live in a bubble that no one, no one gets into. I feel like an alien. I live in a completely different world to the one everyone else is in. I can't communicate with anyone. I can talk to them but I can not.. communicate. But you.. Griff, you get into my bubble.
- Melody: I know who you are. You are me, and the opposite of me. You are the question, I am the answer. You are the proton, I am the neutron.
- Griff: You are a magnetic field and I am as light, forever drawn to you.
- Melody: The city needs you.
- Griff: Before I tell you this, you have to commit to a vow of secrecy unlike any other.
- Griff: I'm not who I seem to be.
- Griff: I have powers.
