With reserved, revolutionary effects for its time as well as a proper handle on its story, The Invisible Man is reasonably Universal's most intelligent of their classic monsters.
While it lacks many thrills (and seamless effects) that post-apocalyptic fans would desire, or that would even live up to its title, Monsters does benefit greatly from debuting director Gareth Edwards' minimalist self-done style and the chemistry of its two leads.
Some dazzling set pieces and earnest Vernean intrigue make the journey bearable, but it can't help but be swamped in Hollywood's obvious casting errors, dated sexism arguments, and some effects that really don't hold.
The dramatization segments start out in a near-SNL-level of parody that almost makes it hard to take the subject seriously, but as the film progresses, it fairly and quite seriously delves into the problems, and their origins, of modern online dangers and how they creep into the real world.
While not deep by any means, this intense WW2 thriller gets the blood pumping and the brain calculating, and Tom Hanks keeps it afloat throughout the voyage.
