Memoirs of an Invisible Man Reviews

  • Sep 25, 2020

    Memoirs of an Invisible Man stars Chevy Chase, but it's not a comedy. And it's directed by John Carpenter, but it's not a horror movie. Perhaps that is why this film doesn't quite work—it's not playing to its strengths. Aside from a few cool visual effects, this drama somberly sleepwalks through its plot, with two lead actors who seem to have been sedated and drained of their charisma.

    I watch this out of curiosity because, Sam Neil and John Carpentet. It's not a bad movie, sadly it's a not that funny movie, it could have used more comedy similar to the one in Groundhog's Day since the invisible premise is comedy gold, sadly it focus a lot in a mediocre love story and chase movie. Glad to know where Ben Affleck's Daredevil got the inspiration for the rain kiss scene.

    When a film doesn't know what genre it falls under. Critics usually hate it. Memoirs of the Invisible Man doesn't know if it is a Thriller or a Comedy. That doesn't make it a bad movie though. The film is fun with fine action, effects and a good musical score. You also have Sam Neil stealing the show as the villain. Chevy Chase tries his best despite being miscast.

    Oh, boy. No blame on the actors, they got paid for something come and go. The movie is silly and plainly boring, stopped watching halfway, felt guilty to watch it for that long. Trash is my best opinion.

    Based on a novel which channels HG Wells's invisible man, Memoirs of an invisible man is briskly paced and well acted by Chevy Chase as the titular character who becomes invisible after a rogue accident at a lab facility. Sam Neill plays the bad guy and Daryll Hannah is the love interest. John Carpenter is a great filmmaker and this film is a testimony that he can handle any project- provided he adds his taste to the final product. I think this film deserves more than a viewing. It is the definition of cult. (Pretty underrated Carpenter film).
