Décrire ce film n'est pas très facile à vrai dire... c'est un drôle de mélange en fait... une jeune femme qui est une dure à cuir; du moins en apparence qui perd facilement ses moyens et deviens rapidement une enragée hors de contrôle... une fois cela sera trop fort et elle en viendra a presque tuer un homme dont elle n'avait jamais vraiment vu qu'il existait... et pourtant elle en était à quelque part amoureuse de lui...

Une histoire spéciale en effet... elle fera tout pour se couvrir et ne pas se faire découvrir... un moment donnée elle ne sera plus capable de vivre avec ses "remords" et ira chercher de l'aide pour retrouver le corps de la victime qu'elle aura faite... elle deviendra alors la sauveteur de celui qu'elle avait pourtant condamné.... que dire si ce revirement de situation n'est que des plus spécial mais en même temps le film m'a semblé bien ficelé donc j'ai embarqué à fond... peut-être car je suis moi même un invisible parfois... car je me suis quelque peu reconnu dans ce jeune homme... qui sait !?

Paranormal Thriller Nov. 29 2007
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"The Invisible" was not a perfect film. I like its paranormal aspect in much the same way that I like the film The Covenant. David Goyer who directed "Zig Zag" in 2002 and "Blade: Trinity II" sits at the helm of this project. He keeps the pacing rolling. If you watch the deleted scenes on the DVD, it's interesting to see how many of the plot details could have been handled in several ways and the choices he made as director. Probably the greatest star of the film is its cinematographer Gabriel Beristain who has shot "The Ring Two," "S.W.A.T.," and "Blade II." While there are some paranormal plot aspects that seem questionable, this remake of the Swedish thriller "Den Osynlige" holds up pretty well for me.

Justin Chatwin who has had parts in the films "Taking Lives" and "War of the Worlds" does a good job as the good-looking Nick Powell who want to go to school in London to study writing while his mother wants him to become a lawyer. Chatwin may not have the greatest depth as an actor, but he comes across warm and likeable in the film, despite the fact that he's making money by selling term papers. Margarita Levieva who was in the TV show "The Vanished" plays Annie Newton, a hard-edged girl who brawls her way through a difficult home life and puts her in league with some rowdy friends. Levieva did a nice job in this major role, showing depth between the violent temper and her softer feminine side. Marcia Gay Harden who won Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "Pollock" in 2000 and was nominated in the same category for "Mystic River" in 2003 plays Diane Powell, Nick's widowed mother whose business sense predominates over being emotionally sensitive. There was a great variety in her performance from the very tightly controlled confident woman to the grieving mother who breaks down in sobs at the lost of her son. Nick's best buddy is Pete played by Chris Marquette. Marquette plays a weak character that has a hard time standing up for himself and is often a victim. One of the most interesting parts is played by Australian actor Alex O'Loughlin who is currently the good looking vampire on TV's "Moonlight" and is also in "August Rush." As Annie's ex-con boyfriend and betrayer Marcus Bohem, he looks rough and acts solely for his own benefit. Given this, O'Loughlin still manages to bring a nicely varied performance to the screen that is interesting to watch, even when we don't like the character. I found the sweet touches like Nick being a pal to Annie's little brother to leave a smile, despite the bittersweet violence and outcome of the film. Overall, I found the film to have some excellent nuances that enhanced from watching it originally in the theatre and then on DVD. Enjoy!

Not just a thriller April 28 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you're going to watch this movie expecting some scary moments and hair raising suspense, then you'll be disappointed. This film has more depth than that and isn't really a horror film. I'd say that the film is more similar to Donnie Darko than Ghost.
I personally thought that this film was beautiful in the way it portrayed the detachment of the two characters (Nick and Annie) from their surroundings. Nick, who had lost his father and lives with an emotionally suppressed mother, lives in a grand house and is an honor roll student. His one and only friend ends up causing Nick's near death experience. In contrast, Annie lives with an uncaring family (with the exception to her little brother) in a low income home, and though she has a boyfriend and two followers, they have no loyalty towards her. Even when the two of them get in trouble, the schools simply dismisses one for being an honor student and the other for being a hopeless case. In effect, both Nick and Annie are invisible.
The setting and atmosphere supports the mood of the entire film: the lonliness and isolation of the characters. Through this agonizing lonliness, Nick and Annie are able to communicate subconsciously. Despite the fact that Annie has killed (or put in a coma) Nick, he empathizes with her and the two bond spiritually.
There is also a contrast of good and evil btwn Nick and Annie. Nick, despite his essay-selling little side business, is portrayed in general (esp. as a spirit) as a warm and understanding person while Annie is portrayed as a spiteful and evil girl. However, through Nick's soothing and sympathy, Annie begins to seek atonement for her actions.
Overall, the film really is about being invisible, not only as a spirit, but also as to how physically alive humans can feel invisible through ignorance, neglect, or just lack of interest or time.

I WAS SCREAMING "HE IS RIGHT THERE!!!" Oct. 24 2007
By hjtras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is one movie where you are going to find yourself liking the criminal as well as the victim. My whole family sat down to watch it and everyone was drawn into the movie and screaming at the intense scenes. In fact, everyone that I know that has watched the movie has loved it, so I am not understanding the negative reviews on it. I can't even think of a single complaint about it, I loved the entire movie and found it to be powerful emotionally. Watch it and judge for yourself, hopefully you will be as moved as I was.

Transparantly Bad May 22 2007
By Mark Eremite - Published on Amazon.com
It's been said before, but I'm going to say it again: this movie is the pinnacle of false advertising. If you've seen the trailers, you know that one of the catchiest lines is, "How do you solve a murder when the victim ... is YOU?" Bum-ba-bum!

There is no murder. Furthermore, there is no mystery. What is there? Oh ho! Let me tell you.

***A HEADS-UP: I used to be a teenager, and although I know that the world has changed since I was navigating the rocky shores of puberty, I can still empathize and even relate to the emotional turbulence common among that time period. That having been said, I hope any teenage readers will take the following review with a grain of salt.***

"The Invisible" was designed solely to cater to an audience of young adults who feel that their personal melodramas are in some way unique to them. The movie is a vehicle for mawkish hamminess, an attempt to validate the confusing mental mess that results when a young person finds their biological engines suddenly flooded with a strange new hormonal fuel.

The story concerns two "invisible" teens. One of them, Nick Powell (played by an over-earnest Justin Chatwin), is a spoiled "misunderstood" genius who writes vacuous poetry and wants to make a living out of it. Without his mother's knowledge (his father is dead, giving him exclusive rights to be mopey), he purchases a ticket to London so that he might join a prestigious writing class. He is rather self-absorbed, but I say that like most poets aren't.

The other "invisible" teen is the weirdly mad Annie Newton (played unevenly by Margarita Levieva). Annie's mother is dead (a parallel!) and her father and step-mom are laughably bad parents. This makes her want to steal things and beat people up. She is misunderstood, too, you see (although I got the impression that, like most of us, she rather likes being misunderstood).

At this point, I do have to give the movie credit for not inlcuding the line "You don't know me!" or "You just don't understand!" anywhere in the script. Kudos!

Let's see. Oh, yes. Nick and Annie clash at school for a lot of "complicated" reasons, not the least of which being that Nick is egotistical and doesn't put up with Annie's disturbed-chick act (she wears all black and tries -- lamely -- to hide her good looks by wearing a skull cap for half of the film). One of Nick's "friends," Pete (perhaps the whiniest film character since Luke Skywalker), convices Annie that Nick is responsible for a recent snitching, and she responds by kicking Nick in the face several times. This puts him close to death. Close enough, that is, so that is soul leaves his body, but not the Earth.

This gives Nick the opportunity to wander around screaming at people and crying a lot. He also gets to go to class and hear all of his friends badmouth him since they don't know his spirit dwells among them. This also provides him with ample time to realize that his attacker, Annie, is really just a lonely, tortured, very sexy soul who dances moderately well. She also takes a very gratuitous shower, breaks into Nick's home and goes through his things, and manages to fool about twenty clueless cops. But she does it morosely and with a heafty dose of angst, so her actions endear Nick to Annie, you see, and I suppose they're supposed to endear her to us, as well.

Mix in an overwrought soundtrack that plays like an emotional scratch-n-sniff card, a pointless suicide scene, and a ludicrous implausibility involving what one can and cannot do after being shot in the stomach, and what you've got is a bloated metaphor about what it takes to be both accepted, loved, and a good person. Dripping with sweaty sentimentality and crippled by hammish histrionics, the movie's most insulting aspect is how excessively it tries to play to the hair-trigger emotions of a viewership that, presumably, is struggling with very real issues of growing up and self-realization. Instead of offering insights or even commiseration, this film serves up exorbitant passion and pretends like it's meaningful. I don't mind (and even get and enjoy) films that deal with the trials and tribulations of teens (Heathers, The Breakfast Club, American Pie, and even Gus Van Sant's sere and quiet Elephant) but I have no patience for a teen film that thinks it doesn't have to be smart or relevant or clever as long as it's moody and melodramatic. Bart Simpson once said that "Making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel," but it doesn't take an adult to see straight through the manipulative mess of "The Invisible."

Great Film - Under-rated by far Nov. 23 2010
By A. Stockman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It is disappointing that a movie of this quality did not have the popularity it deserved. The story itself is rich in detail and full of those literary twists that I enjoy. It is not just a thriller but a study of character and accountability for one's own actions. The soundtrack provides a fitting dark backdrop to this story of desperation. If you are on the fence due to the mixed reviews give it a try. I've seen it twice now and intend to again.
