| Original Score: 2/4
| Original Score: C+
Despite a wealth of special effects and direction by Paul Verhoeven, Mr. Over-the-Top himself, this movie is surprisingly inert, more dull than anything else, with little to recommend it on any level.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
Is a combo of thrills, juicy one-liners and fine star turns by Kevin Bacon and Elisabeth Shue.
Ultimately the title is most revealing. It's hollow, man.
Paul Verhoeven has in Hollow Man come up with a movie empty of purpose.
Hollow Man is just that -- a hollow excuse for a movie.
If not for cable and video, Hollow Man would've been an invisible film.
The most surprising aspect of Hollow Man is the fact that Shue agreed to work in such garbage.
| Original Score: 1/4
Hollow Man is hollow is because there's a void where its imagination should be.
[Verhoeven] just leaves you hanging.
Hollow Man was met by hollow laughter from mocking audience members.
As Hollow Man scrambles toward its conclusion, the dialogue founders and logic retreats.
Hollow Man does much more than just peek and grab.
Verhoeven sets up and then fails to deliver lavish satirical ways of having fun with invisibility.
| Original Score: B-
I had more interest in the secondary characters.
| Original Score: C-
The film's degree of viciousness, which certainly isn't limited to Caine's nocturnal wanderings, makes one hope Verhoeven isn't taking any potions.
The real invisible man here is Verhoeven, whose talent can barely be seen in Hollow Man.
Hollow Man has a wicked, dirty soul -- and that's why it's special.
It brings nothing to the party except the most simplistic elements.
With her quick wits and stamina, [Shue] steps to the fore, and we'd watch her even if Bacon weren't invisible.
| Original Score: 3/4
The movie is same-old, same-old.
A labored, implausible piece of action-movie hack work.
The movie proceeds by the hoariest sci-fi clichés.
There's so little of the Verhoeven touch in Hollow Man that it could have been directed by almost any studio hack.
Too bad they couldn't figure out a way to make the whole movie invisible.
