Critic Reviews for The Amazing Transparent Man

All Critics (5)

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

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

It has a interesting concept but it's not a new one. The effects are pretty low budget, and the characters aren't too great. Decent MST3K material, but not a decent film.
