The Invisible Man Movie Review 2020
The invisible man was directed by Leigh Whannell and stars Elizabeth Moss as a woman fleeing from an abusive boyfriend but when she learns that he’s committed suicide and she’s inherited $5000000.
Things seem okay for a while until an invisible force starts to Stocker and she believes this man has found a way to become invisible.
Leigh Whannell it’s been one of my favorite people working in movies today since Saw movie having written that film and shooting it on such a shoestring budget which James one and starring in it than working on insidious and upgrade which he directed which was awesome.
I was very excited to see this movie but after films like I Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Dracula untold, and the mummy having another one of universal’s famous quote-unquote monsters being remade gave me some pause gratefully this is nothing like those movies at all.
This is a reimagining that works in spades. I know that you can technically include the invisible man with Frankenstein and the mummy and Dracula and all that.
But I never really thought they were of the same vein. Yeah universal owns rights and there are all kinds of random things.
But I always thought it was more of a sci-fi which is definitely what H.G. wells were going for with his original novella. And Leigh Whannell was found a way to make this feel very modern.
This is slight science fiction but it’s really more of a horror-thriller and at its center is an excellent performance by Elisabeth moss who continues to impress and everything she does.
She’s really damn good in this movie and you feel for her a lot. Because you can totally relate to what she’s going through. Even if you’re not a woman fleeing from an abusive man more than likely at some point in your life you have felt controlled by someone or gaslighted by someone or someone’s made you feel like you’re not worth anything.
And this is why I care so much about her character in this movie. Because it not only that as this invisible man starts to torment her and it becomes apparent that she has to do something about it.
Naturally, she can’t explain that to anybody and nobody understands what she’s going through. If you say I’m being attacked by an invisible man you just look like a crazy person.
This is why I’m kind of surprised this reimagining hasn’t happened sooner, because if you were to take that original story and put it in 2020 this is the way to do.
It is a smart emotionally effective and cost-effective way to make a movie. When you can build so much tension around something that isn’t even on sets.
Because he constantly films couches or he’ll pan away from an actor to the corner of the room he suggesting that this guy is sitting on that couch or he’s standing in the corner and you start to look around even though you know you’re not going to see him.
You look for signs that he’s there and a lot of scenes where he may not have been and that’s due to some really great suggestion with the camera.
And this movie proves what horror fans and some really good filmmakers have been saying for years and that’s that suggesting things with the camera making your audience question what they’re looking at.
Introducing some mystery making you lean forward and wonder did I just see what I think I saw. That’s how you produce good scares. It’s not about loud noises.
Yeah there is some effective jump scares in this movie, but none of them are cheap. They’re all really well done and the use of sound is really important in this movie.
Because there’s plenty of sequences that are very silent and you’re almost listening for this guy’s breath. This movie easily could have been very cheesy.
But it’s committed to the psychological aspect of this horror. What it’s doing to Elizabeth Moss and what it’s doing to her relationships. Because this guy is super smart and he’s got a plan.
And you can see at all coming into motion like dominoes just toppling perfectly the way he wants them to. To make this woman look as crazy as possible. But your honor side so it’s kind of an underdog story in a way to.
I can’t sing the directing and the acting enough praises all of that’s really good. The script is also pretty good. There’s some good dialogue although there are some plot holes and some inconsistencies about certain things, that I don’t want to get into because of spoilers.
But I’ll all traverse it carefully. There’s an aspect about transportation. How someone is getting to and from places. That kind of left me wondering at the end of the movie how exactly that took place.
There is a very apparent uber driver parked outside someone’s gate and I don’t know how they missed that driver waiting there. There are just certain questions that I have seen the movie that kind of led me down a path of movie logic.
Every movie has that. You know where certain things just have to happen and the filmmakers hoping you accept it. Even though it’s a bit of a coincidence or it probably wouldn’t happen that way in real life.
There’s a scene at a restaurant where. If there is just even one security camera the movie ends basically or at least some of the tension ends. And there’s just a lot of questions that could be easily answered with security cameras and in a film that references security cameras often in someone’s house outside someone’s house.
You would think that they would also cover those bases too. It’s a very easy fix instead of having that scene in a crowded restaurant. It could have been someplace more private but at the same time for it to have its effect it had to be in front of people.
And so there’s just a there are questions that sort of relate to movie logic and if you’re one of those people like me. That sometimes goes I don’t know about that there are a few parts of the movie that might bug you.
But really those moments are few and far between and I don’t think it did much at all to detract from my enjoyment of the movie. Because it was just so well acted so well made.
And I respected their reimagining rather than like having Aaron Eckhart fight a bunch of monsters and Tom Cruise runs from some bugs what was the runner from scorpions, I don’t know the mummy god damn.
I’m going to give The Invisible Man Movie 2020 a B-plus. I am really excited to see what else Leigh Whannell does. I understand he’s working on an escape from New York film. That’s exciting. That bad excites me.
Guys thank you so much as always for reading The Invisible Man movie review. See you soon with another movie.
