The Invisible Man's Revenge Reviews
The bandages are back for a head covering, but when he is invisible you can see an outline of where he is more often than before. And you can see the whites of his eyes in a couple effects mistakes. Still there are yet more improvements in the effects mainly with Robert fading in and out of visibility while moving.
Curiosamente el actor pasa de ser un heroe invisible en la pelicula anterior a tratarse de un villano que se vuelve loco por el uso de la droga (algo que tambien vuelve a los origenes de la serie)
La pelicula es entretenida, pero la trama se aprecia algo agotada junto a una resolución excesivamente repentina para lo compleja que es...
Una pelicula final que cierra la serie, con claros signos de agotamiento
Robert Griffin has just returned to London. At some point he was in Africa. Whether that's where he's coming from is debatable, but wherever he's coming from he's just recently killed three people while escaping from a mental institution. He's in London to call on some old friends and collect his half of the profits from an expedition they collaborated on in Africa. Unfortunately, they thought he had died on that expedition, and have lost all the money, including his half. Unfortunately for them, he believes that the reason they were so sure that he was dead is that they tried to murder him. They pretend to be reasonable but seem to be just stallling, which of course doesn't work with Griffin since he refuses to be reasonable, so they throw him out and warn the police that a wanted fugitive is in the city. As luck would have it, Griffin stumbles on a local scientist who's invented an invisibility formula and has been anxious to try it on a human. Griffin volunteers, then skips out on his new friend to use his new power to torment his old friends. Things go his way until he needs to be restored to a visible state and discovers the only antidote, a temporary one at that, is human blood. A full body's worth. Of course a madman wouldn't let a little thing like that stop him, now would he? What kind of madman would he be if he did? All the other madmen would laugh at him and call him names. And do you think they'd let him join in any of their madman games? No, they wouldn't.
The Invisible Man series finally gets back to what made the first film great, and finishes in style. Jon Hall is better as a villain than as a pompous hero, and Evelyn Ankers is her usual self, but John Carradine is what makes this really worthwhile. If only all of Universal's monster series could have ended this strongly rather than being run into the ground.
