While an Invisible Man reboot was originally conceived that way, following several redevelopments, this film is not part of Universal's 'Dark Universe'.So is this related to Tom Cruise's The Mummy? As in they are both part of the Dark Universe? Because this is completely different in nature and would be, what, the forth time Universal have tried to resurrect their Universal Monsters franchises after The Wolfman, Dracula Untold and The Mummy?
Couldn't bring myself to award the full 8/10. The general very dark theme meant it was a tad too gruim, although I appreciate makers trying something different.
Hollowman is a brilliant film but it seems to almost be like a hidden gem nowadays. I'm not sure why as it still holds up well today but is rarely mentioned.Thanks for the review; this sounds good to me, have mentally added it to my watch list.
Mercifully there's been no knee-jerk reaction (yet) to the content of this review c.f. Birds Of Prey...
What seems a little curious to me with the various reviews I've read/skimmed (to avoid spoilers) is that the Verhoeven version ("Hollow Man", but essentially the same premise) doesn't seem to get a mention any more. I remember enjoying that when it was released but will admit I've not seen it since.
...Pity there were maybe five people in my showing at 7pm last night though.
Although this is a film I might wait to appear in other media, the premiss looks sound, and Elizabeth Moss apparently really sells this very well. If it doesn't do very well despite being a decent film with decent reviews then part of that maybe to do with some of the media spin (or "hot takes") on the film. So let's hope more people go to see it.Only about the same in my showing yesterday....
It's already well into profit -So let's hope more people go to see it.
I’m raising my score to a 9/10, it was really amazing filmmaking, Leigh Wannel has hit it outta the park again, I thought upgrade was great but this takes it up a notch for me.Brilliant film, full of dark, shocking twists & turns, expertly handles the whole invisible man aspect.
Super tense throughout, Moss is amazing as always!
I had a great 2 hours at the cinema.
Easy strong 8/10 for me
