The Invisible Man

Critics Consensus

Smart, well-acted, and above all scary, The Invisible Man proves that sometimes, the classic source material for a fresh reboot can be hiding in plain sight.

Movie Info

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC's The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO's Euphoria). But when Cecilia's abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Critic Reviews for The Invisible Man

All Critics (373) | Top Critics (48) | Fresh (341) | Rotten (32)

  • There's a lot more to think about than a typical horror film. It's a real psychological thriller...a good strong film, not SCARY scary, but it gets in your head.

    April 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The prize asset is Moss, of course, a seven-octave actor equally happy with micro-emotion and going very big indeed.

    March 26, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, The Invisible Man makes for a pacey, if mostly predictable, reimagining of a classic Hollywood horror terror.

    March 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • [Elizabeth Moss is] amazing and she does so much just with her eyes. It's a really demanding role physically [and] emotionally; it's a huge range she has to play.

    March 5, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Whannell is brilliant at distracting us with amusing, knowing dialogue (siblings are rivalrous; architects are trendy; waiters are irksomely urbane). Death comes when you least expect it.

    March 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A bracingly modern #MeToo allegory that, despite its brutal craft, rings hollow.

    Slow-moving at times, but a clever re-working of the H.G. Welles classic with the title character now a physically and emotionally abusive husband.

    5.5/10 I didn't find it smart or scary. It's just a mediocre sci-fi.

    I love the stories of the invisible man, and this is certainly a different take of the story. Rather than embracing the opportunity for effects and dark comedy, this film limits the effects severely and goes for straight terror. The brilliant thing about the way it is shot is the sense of paranoia it creates. I can't remember the last time I've watched a movie this closely. The film will do things such as move away from frame of a character a little early or a little late, or hold onto an area where there seems to be nothing. Look closely and you might see a chair or something that's slightly indented. Other times the camera will move and you won't know if it's a POV shot or just a normal camera movement shot. It's not established, but this isn't a mistake, it just adds to the sense of paranoia the movie is creating. There's a few jump scenes, and even a moment when I actually gasped, but for the most part it's all about the building sense of tension and dread and it does so perfectly. Telling it in a story of an abusive relationship that feels all too real with Elizabeth Moss absolutely killing it as a woman who seems insane but only we know isn't. If I have a criticism of the movie, it's that once the s*** really hits the fan in the third-act, it does start to become standard monster movie action formula to a degree. It still holds a lot of the tension, but not as much as it starts to devolve into more violence and action. Still for how tense the rest of the film is there is a sense of catharsis to this, and in its final moments it does return to form. Overall this is a great reboot of a classic story. If this is the way Universal is going with it's monsters now, dropping that Dracula Untold and Tom Cruise Mummy crap, I'm all in.

    The Invisible Man is one of those rare films that remakes an age old horror film successfully for modern audiences. I won't go into spoilers here, but this is a great horror film. They manage to twist the narrative onto the woman and her struggles to survive a violent relationship. This is relevant in so many areas and the filmmaker has started to find his feet with Blumhouse. Insidious Chapter 3 was a tough act to follow after James Wan, but Upgrade and now The Invisible Man are giant leaps forward. Consider the budget of these films are much lower and allow for creativity and lower studio interference. This is one reboot that works and establishes itself with topical subjects of our era. A must-see. 22/03/2020
