January 1, 2000
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.

Is a combo of thrills, juicy one-liners and fine star turns by Kevin Bacon and Elisabeth Shue.

Paul Verhoeven has in Hollow Man come up with a movie empty of purpose.

Ultimately the title is most revealing. It's hollow, man.

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 film's degree of viciousness, which certainly isn't limited to Caine's nocturnal wanderings, makes one hope Verhoeven isn't taking any potions.
January 1, 2000
The real invisible man here is Verhoeven, whose talent can barely be seen in Hollow Man.
January 1, 2000
Hollow Man has a wicked, dirty soul -- and that's why it's special.
January 1, 2000
It brings nothing to the party except the most simplistic elements.

January 1, 2000
With her quick wits and stamina, [Shue] steps to the fore, and we'd watch her even if Bacon weren't invisible.

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.
January 1, 2000
Verhoeven simply makes a mess of it.
January 1, 2000
Too bad they couldn't figure out a way to make the whole movie invisible.
