Critic Reviews for Memoirs of an Invisible Man
This material is intriguing enough that I wish there had been more of it. Comedy consists of the application of logic to the absurd, and there are many more opportunities here than the screenplay takes advantage of.
With nothing to hold on to, neither in direction, nor in script, nor in actors, the only positive things are the more than correct score of Shirley Walker and the spectacular visual effects. [Full Review in Spanish]
the visual effects remain one of the great elements of this mixed bag of a film, allowing for moments of comedy, awe, wonder, and just plain cool.
Boasts excellent visual effects but otherwise relates a mediocre story.
Audience Reviews for Memoirs of an Invisible Man
Not your typical Carpenter film this and certainly not your typical Chevy Chase film either. Everyone knows the basic premise for 'The Invisible Man' and this film is based on a novel so there aren't too many surprises along the way. I think the casting of Chase was wrong for the film really, he does add a nice light touch but he doesn't fit the seriousness of it all. You can't help but think Dan Aykroyd or Eugene Levy will pop up and crack a few visual gags. Chase does charm well, adding a gentle feeling but the addition of Hannah as his love interest really doesn't help, she is so so wet and lame, turns the whole thing into real mush. Effects wise the film is quite good and at the time they did make an impact. Nothing original looking back of course, all the usual type of visual gags and transparency problems one would expect, but some sequences do look good still. Its more enjoyable to watch the special effects knowing no CGI was used, that does make you appreciate the work more and some of it is kinda cute these days. A pleasant film with no real surprises or much originality. Expect to see the typical bandaged man look a few times, can't have an invisibility flick without the obligatory bandaged man, makes you wonder where he got all the bandages. Also gotta wonder where he gets all the clothes and smoking jacket type attire from, the Claude Rains film really set a trend there. Bottom line, Chase is the good invisible guy and Sam Neill is the bad CIA guy after him. Personally the offer of being a top undercover spy working for Uncle Sam doesn't sound too bad if you ask me, dunno what Chase's character is complaining about. A wander into mainstream Hollywood type affairs for Carpenter without his usual quirky mysterious thrills. Nice film but nothing to shout about.
Another Chevy Chase's film, that could be much better. Despite the special effects, and chilling story, Memoirs is not so funny. But is memorable, for me, at least. Weak.
a john carpenter film, so much is expected, but totally undermined by the lead, doing a bad bogie ...
