Cinematography and visual effects are good, but the whole story is too fabricated. Also, I felt that the leading actress's look and acting (special or strange ?) were not so suitable for this film.

Excellent thriller. Elizabeth Moss does paranoid so well. Title could just as well been called the Invisible Creep. Possessive super rich guys who have access to extreme high tech are bad news.

Really tightly written and suspenseful drama that is a little bit sci-fi, a little bit horror (depending on your sensitivity to gore). The tension never really lets up and Moss is great in the leading role as the victim of domestic abuse who struggles to escape from her controlling tech-bro partner. A really good, tension-filled watch.

I watched this movie in theathers its a very scarry movie it is about a guy Adrian who is a bad guy my friends name is Adreain hes polish he works at he mall at west 49 i thought this movie would be vey good to watch.

Four stars, a high rating for a movie that straddles sci-fi and terror. Not: not "horror," (and that's a very important distinction.). Two reasons for the rating:

First-rate scripting, updating in a marvellous way, HG Well's classic story, offering much more dimension and opportunities for human drama. It's a long long way from the "gee whiz, the guy's invisible" of the novel and Universal's classic 1933 movie version.

Certainly the best movie role of Elisabeth Moss's career so far, and she makes the most of it. Extremely believable (and in the movie, NOBODY believes her!)

The story of this movie's release is interesting: been booted around since 2006 or so. Finally got it together under Australian writer/director/producer Leigh Whannell (If you loved the horror flick "Saw", thank Whannell--it was one he wrote.) The movie was released into theatres about a month before Covid ended movie going. Just four weeks--the $7 million production had earned $140 million plus.

So, yes. There will be a sequel. And Whannell's got it covered, and Moss likely will be back...

The plot is good and unique actually, a complicated situation imposed to a victim by her narcissist OCD psychopath husband. But somehow the pace is slow and the acting isn’t convincing enough.

For most of this film I was not convinced about the story line. I didn't believe most of what was happening. The acting is good, but the scrip isn't the greatest. I started liking the film when there was about 30 minutes left. I couldn't tell how it was going to end, but it was too little, too late for me. All in all, this is a weird movie.

There's a fair amount to like here. It's okay. There are two or three segments that pretty much evaporate my suspension of disbelief. A really good example of this has to do with the invisible man having paint dumped on him. The viewer sees the paint wash over the guy's head and shoulders and much of the top of his torso. Another character follows the trail of paint down a hallway and the trail trickles to an end within like 8 feet. There are no footprints. The paint is just gone. Then, the character hears a kitchen sink turned on, makes their way to the sink within like 30 seconds, and finds about half as much paint in the sink as had been seen on the invisible man; throughout all this and after it, the invisible man was never seen covered in paint. Moments like this really bring the film down. Dude walking around with paint splashed on him would have left all kinds of footprints and would have been incredibly visible.
