The Invisible Reviews
Layers of the story are jammed into the script, but what might work as a narrative device in a novel -- the spirit guiding readers through Nick's revelations -- is just plain ridiculous in a movie.
[This] wasn't screened for the press, perhaps because its poetic fantasy premise is so hard to understand. Yet originality and even a certain amount of obscurity are more appealing than formula.
Director David S. Goyer doesn't get half the skin-crawling mileage out of the ghost factor that he could. As a result, The Invisible really isn't worth seeing.
Even ghost stories aren't allowed to be so ludicrous as to show a gut-shot character carrying on as if suffering from nothing worse than a mild wedgie, or a guy trying to drag his own body to safety.
Director David S. Goyer turned the familiar sights of our fair city into a seething battleground for vampires in 2004's Blade: Trinity, but his latest Vancouver-shot supernatural flick doesn't have nearly as much bite.
