I walked into this movie expecting something completely different than what I got. While most people are using this as an excuse to hate this movie, It made me like it even more. The acting was excellent. Justin Chatwin and Margarita Levieva are incredibly believable and both seem to really enjoy the material. I can understand why some people would be mad. Most people were expecting the teenage horror flick. I am so glad it wasn't. There was so much depth and beauty to it. In my opinion if you didn't' like it either you didn't understand it or you are a horror obsessed teen. <more>
The soundtrack also was amazing. I loved everything about this movie. The promotion meaning Trailers could have been done a lot more differently and better. Still i strongly encourage this movie to those of you who love deep, thought provoking, beautiful, and emotional movies!
Amazing Movie for a different set of reasons (by joncastleman)
People who hated this movie OBVIOUSLY looked at it for the pure reason of giggling at the flaws. The trailer was obviously made so you would think about the point of the movie, that people who feel invisible are completely capable of being heard. The fact that the old man was not in the movie mad you think about it even more. THAT WAS WHAT THEY WERE TRYING TO DO, and they did it very well. Try and think about the movie as a big epic retelling of what everyone wants, to be heard. This boy becomes "invisible" but really he is in the median state of death. He has to experience the <more>
trauma of his death without being able to input. He then learns that he has to figure out how to save himself, so he can live again.This is an amazingly well made film, and if you truly take it for what it means, you will leave tearing.
Disregard many of the hacks regarding "The Invisible" (by jjhproductionco)
The Ivisible in an astounding film and I'm thoroughly confused about why it's being bashed by the viewers... They are all wrong, except the ones who say its great. I thought the chemistry was fabulous from the two leads, especially in the second half. I loved the story, and the many directions it took, I loved the message of the film. To the people who say this movie ripped off "Ghost", I say 'who cares' Ghost was fabulous too. Just because you got one phenomenal film, doesn't mean you can't have two. I can't wait to see the original. I got very <more>
emotional, and the only draw back was that the theater was falling apart and the audio cut out sporadically, but that's not the film makers fault. I think as a society we are too harsh to the people who entertain us. "Bleep" everyone else, see this movie, and tell me what you think.
Despite all the bad reviews on here, I went to see "The Invisible" and I was not disappointed. I really loved the underlying drama and self discovery the movie relayed throughout the story. It made you feel for both the victim and the villain and feel their pain and sacrifices. It went past the usual story line of romance and macho heros, but looked deeper. And above that, my friends and I loved the main character : He is very good looking. Apparently the other reviewers don't have the ability to see past explosions and fake fights in films to see the depth portrayed in this <more>
movie. Definitely give this one a try. It made my day and made me think very hard about life. Not to sound too cheesy...
I think people are exaggerating over the movie being so horrible. I saw previews of this months and months ago and promised myself I'd see it the first night it came out. I was not disappointed! Afte seeing the reviews here on IMDb I was afraid I'd go and be upset, but nope! It was very captivating and a very neat movie. I do think some of the characters were a little bland, but the main ones like Powell and Annie were not. If you already had plans to see this, I would suggest still seeing it in theaters! As the plot goes, Annie is a very evil girl. I can't describe her any <more>
better. The previews make you think she is the girlfriend of Powell. In fact, she's the one who just about kills him. The story isn't so much just about Powell, but both him and Annie. He has to try and tell Annie she can still have a chance to do one good thing in her life by telling the police where his body is. If you enjoy movies that are about the boundaries of life and death, then definitely see this. It can be humorous, but it's a suspenseful and even heartbreaking film towards the end. It wasn't what I expected. Yes, some things are obvious and you can figure them out, but overall it was a good film and doesn't deserve all the harsh criticism.
After seeing the trailer, I was all about seeing this movie. It had such a comparison to what I see teenagers going through every day. Being the mother of a teenager who has had it tough and made some crazy decisions made it even more realistic. Push comes to shove, things happen, and questions are asked later. The actors in the movie bring this to the screen. You almost forget you are watching a movie. I wasn't expecting the ending, but it works. I am definitely going to watch it again when it comes out in stores. I was so into the movie in the theater that I think I missed something, <more>
Strangely Compelling Teen Ghost Story (by vitaleralphlouis)
Definitely NOT a copycat of "The Sixth Sense" this film instead is highly original, sets its own mark, goes its own way.Although I haven't been a teen in decades, I know them well enough to say the portrayals of the central characters are as on-the-level as I've seen lately. This never-dull and unusual story kept us involved more than we expected, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys either teen movies or supernatural thrillers.If you rent it from Netflix, please beware of a similar titled film, a dreadful movie about two young American stone-heads pretty much comatose <more>
in a cheap flat in Paris. Dull and stupid.The soundtrack of INVISIBLE is truly good and proves that good music is still being done in 2007 even if they don't ever play it on the air.One way films have improved: When I was a teen there were never any teen movies with characters you could either believe or relate to. Now they make such movies frequently. After all, the most complex problems in a lifetime are during the teen years. Everything after that is easy once you've survived the basic training of that age. Once you know that you've got an over-sized field of ideas for good movies like this.
Finally it seemed like Hollywood had produced an attention grabber, riveting, and thought provoking movie. The creators of the sixth Sense? This had to be good, right? Unfortunately, I was let down to say the least. Once again the previews looked fantastic and compelling, but nonetheless the product itself was brutal, cliché. Although the Sixth Sense was obviously fiction, it was fantastic. This too was obviously fiction, but it was predictable and way too unbelievable. The actors did a fairly decent job with their roles, but the acting itself was bland. This film had potential, but it was <more>
wasted. Hollywood hasn't come out with a classic type movie in a while, and the people are longing for one. I have yet to be satisfied with a recent production.
wow what is with all the negative comments!!i actually loved this movie ]i cried at the end.i fell deeply in love with Nick Powell Justin Chatwin at first i thought the movie was going to be quite stupid but after the first 10//20 minutes my heart was set.lol i thought he did a wonderful job for his role so did the girl that played Annie! sorry if i broke your heart because of the love I'm giving this movie. no hard feelings. i think i just related to this movie because of the things that had happened. Annie thought Nick was all goody goody and it turns out that he is living kinda <more>
the life she was.that made a big change in how the two kids felt about each other.
