And the way they went about it, explaining how he became invisible, albeit cliché, it was a way to modernize the old tale.

Worth watching!.

Worth the watch .

A bagful of utter boring nonsense .

Don't waste your time .

Boring.

Everyone is just so slow and stupid with everything they do, and don't even get me started on the guards/cops in that hospital scene!

This all led to a very entertaining final act.

Great visuals, photography,engaging....

It was painful trying to stay awake to watch it.

suspenseful and psychologically creepy.

It's slow as hell, not enough action or thrill to it.

Two valuables hours of my life that wouldn't come back, don't waste your time watching this, the lack of human morality and sense in characters makes this movie an unrealistic junk.

Total Cliché .

It was certainly entertaining and Elizabeth Moss's acting wasn't pretty good for someone going crazy thinking an invisible person is attacking her.

Some of Cee's decisions fell into the horror cliche.

They're all, by nature of the theme, intriguing.

Gets more engaging as it progresses.

Agree, Don't waste your time watching this .

Boring and uninteresting.

It's very dreary and downright boring at times.

Moss gives a stellar turn in Whannell's intriguing re-imagining of a horror classic .

It was so slow and just when you thought it might pick up it didn't.

Trained dog, especially Dobermans, always keep the pace of the person alongside whom they are walking and never continue walking past if the person stops for whatever reason)Unoriginal, impersonal and dull male lead together with the behavior of the invisible man (could have been much stronger, more serious and more vengeful with sophisticated notes)Bad use of the runtime (124 minutes could have been put to a better use - impartially speaking)You watch this entertaining movie, enjoy the two hours spent and move past.

This tail of betrayal, stocking and survival is a thrilling, edge of your seat roller-coaster.

It's worth watching in my opinion and the negatives don't take too much away from it.

Part of the bad of the film would be involved in act three, since it is the one that brings more conveniences, and things that are the opposite of real life (Apart from the action scenes, the special effects are somewhat bad ), for example those who have already seen it will know what I mean when I say that it is too much strength that they gave to the invisible man, nowhere in the film do they give you a sense that this trajectory gives superhuman strength, I know being invisible is a more difficult opponent to fight, but the way Cecilia's friend James defeats him is so unreal, the only thing you can say is "So much muscle for nothing", there are also the typical Cliches that the villain is going to kill someone important to the protagonist but due to his slowness salvation comes just in time, this can be applied in the scene where the invisible man is going to kill to kill Sidney the daughter of James, since although previously l or we saw mercilessly kill a group of guards at once, it does not do with Sidney and surprise comes salvation just in time.

The film attempts to justify itself with some of what it and probably the teenagers watching it think is clever, but ultimately tho whole thing was a waste of time and resources.

Don't waste your time.

Waste of time .

Worst movie of 2020 .

Extremely predictable.

if I have to nitpick I gotta say the movie started really slow and it should have had a more fast paced intro.

I read the reviews on here and decided to go and watch this absolute waste of 2hrs of my life.

There's some thrilling action scenes, and some rather starling violence and shocks.

The ending was thrilling though it was trying too hard to offer something unexpected.

However, there is some depth to her character and some moral shades of grey that make her fascinating to watch and a great lead character.

Mildly predictable .

Slow and boring .

Long, drawn out nonsense

There are some really quietly intense scenes.

Save your money and watch something else.

Surely, not an oscar contender (my opinion), but certainly entertaining and with a decent level of thrilling.

Story can be a bit cliche and the ending is not satisfying.

The film never lets you forget the Invisible Man could be anywhere, with the camera often focusing on empty wide shots and the subtle clicking noise.

A beautiful movie and a new and enjoyable idea, the story is terrible and the heroine of the film is very beautiful

Worst movie of the year so far .

Visually the movie is amazing and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the ending.

However, despite the centrality of this theme in the core story, reframing the template as a tale of domestic abuse and PTSD, as happens in this latest adaptation, which focuses not on the male scientist but on a female victim of his, is a fascinating idea, creating the potential for some timely #MeToo social commentary, particularly as it relates to issues of not believing women who accuse powerful men of gaslighting.

Fortunately, The Invisible Man is a solid and thoroughly engaging thriller.

This was 1 of the worst movies I have ever seen and believe me I have seen a bunch.

This was a total waste of time.

The movie starts with an amazing thriller headstart but falls flat very soon with so many logical compromises and a dull screenplay.

The acting was great and the plot was intriguing.

Trailer makes you want to watch this movie but the movie itself loses it half way through, gets boring and predictable

Entertaining .

It is worth watching from start to finish.

It is just waste of time.

It was so suspenseful because I was in a theater.

Decided to treat myself to a suspenseful flick for my Birthday.

Poor plot and story, slow pace that at some point you surely get bored.

as each scene is drawn out ad infinitum...

It was enjoyable.

Suspenseful!

Worst Movie I've Ever Seen .

The use of empty space is remarkably terrifying at times and I was consistently impressed by the story choices that director Leigh Whannell made to make the film entertaining all the way up until its final moments.

The third act involves an incredibly confusing plot twist and a completely ridiculous plot device that causes the movie to dip way too much into science fiction.

One of the best, intense films I've seen in the past few years.

Intense Thrill-Ride at Its Peak .

Entire film too freaking slow, and full of boring conversation!

Starts out as a boring move till the middle, than it gets better

This movie was long and drawn out.

Overall, a gripping and expertly crafted psychological thriller.

This movie had me on the edge of my seat from the first scene until the very end.

Slow start .

Rather a very Hollywood treatment of the concept with a thriller noir genre, Effectivly it works and the film, despite some slow draggy moments at the start , keeps one resonably guessing and at the edge of the seat.

It needs to be built through character and story, and if it is done right it can be a slow burner of a film that is still entertaining.

Suspenseful and thrilling .

I enjoyed it.

Very entertaining thriller.

Again, the first ever major studio movie to be released direct to the consumer after movie theaters were shuttered along with everything else in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is available to download at a cost of-a very enjoyable 2 hour reprieve from pandemic life.

A worth watching movie, one of the best thrillers made this year !

Very slow .

Really , really boring...

Really enjoyed it.

Although this is just the first quarter of 2020, I'd say that The Invisible Man is a very entertaining and better horror film than the lacklusters released.

Predictable.

I didn't really like the ending, I thought it should have ended with the invisible man got away and puts on a more classic invisible man look (this would mean that he would have to be invisible instead of a suit) but instead she kills her ex boyfriend, takes the suit and gets a close up of her face that lasts way too long.

Don't waste your time.

Second, the so-called twists are excruciatingly predictable.

Don't waste your money .

The Invisible Man is a very unique suspenseful story about shows the abusive side of technology.

Boring Cinematography.. Plot holes everywhere.. And of course nobody believes the protagonists in horror movies so why even showing that to the viewers repeatedly?

Elisabeth Moss gives one of her most intense dramatic performances to date, which truly shows her range as an actress.

Very slow, very boring.

The shocking moments where fun and if you just sit down and watch it for what it is, it's pretty enjoyable.

d predictable story-line.

The thriller elements were engaging and clever.

The film was so slow, the acting was terrible, the plot was even worse.

So predictable events like another recent movies men are bad and women are victims and end of movie like other horror movies THE WOMAN SURVIVES.

Ok, got that out of the way, and unlike other reviewers, I don't think the last third of the film is bad at all - what I did question were some very illogical decisions for such an optically inclined film - restaurants have cameras, hospitals have cameras, there were any number of times evidence could be produced to prove C's innocence, but those are minor annoyances in an overall entertaining popcorn movie.

I wanted the movie to end very differently, sadly the movie was predictable and I was hoping to be wrong.

And the ending, so predictable, so amateur...

Whilst this was entertaining I would of preferred a more supernatural approach.

Overall, quite enjoyable.

Just neutral yet so typical and predictable .

Gripping !

The great acting, writing and setting of this film with that made for a great and entertaining film that I recommend.

It's been a long time since I've been fortunate enough to be this much on the edge of my seat throughout a movie.

The first hour is incredibly sleep-inducing, good to play in the background as you try to fall asleep.

One of the most predictable movies you will ever have watched .

She keeps the movie engaging.

uninteresting.

Super exciting thriller .

Disappointing, predictable, an hymn to conjugal violence.

All in all, a waste if my time.

Started with high hopes but became a tad boring.

Granted, it was short and unimportant, but made the movie a tiny bit more intriguing for me.

What seems like an interesting concept that ends up feeling a little predictable and tired some.

Predictable trash .

But all in all an enjoyable 2 hours.

Yawn..

Don't waste your money.. rent Hollow Man instead .

Finally a movie that puts you on the edge of your seat from the begin until the end .

Don't waste your time.

The use of technology to stalk your wife, that right there is an interesting concept in itself, the mental instability of this man drove him to use his own technology to potentially trap and ruin his wife's life, her sister died in the process and that was unexpected.

Yawn .

Slow Start .

As bizarre occurrences escalates, those who once believed in Cecelia's sanity diminishes in beautifully crafted suspense and friction by mastermind director Leigh Whannell; suspense which is reminiscent of the Great Depression noirs, with their Hitchcockian vibe and slow burn to frantic climax.

Sooo compelling...

The movie is novel, suspenseful, and interesting, and well-acted.

Schockers not really present, sound was ok, effects were very underwhelming for an invisble man movie even fighting looked illogical and don't waste too much time about being logical with that movie it makes many mistakes.

This was truly a waste of time and I would recommend anybody who reads this to find an actual good horror or thriller.

So entertaining!

Boring .

Well worth watching, and I assure you the 2 hours will be very well spent!

Waste of my time.

Elisabeth Moss as Cecilia is at her best, as for the most of the film she acts opposite an empty space and makes it look engaging.

Pros Good screenplay and storyGreat acting by Elisabeth Moss (Most of the rating goes to her)Good accompanying moody music overallGood special effectsConvincingly suspenseful atmosphere throughoutInterestingly enough endingCons Aside Elisabeth Moss, weak acting by the cast, especially the detective and the daughterLacks solid logic and development as a backbone, be it the story or behaviorsWeak portrayal of the Doberman, as an unoriginal dog (which they are not), doing nothing useful, not recognizing a person (dogs never bark when they know the person by smell and specific sound pattern to the person, even if he's invisible) and going past the lead actress when they were walking toward the end of the movie.

Contrived and disappointing it is.

Cringe conversations, the pointless use of music in scenes.

The overall plot of the movie is incredibly cliche and unsatisfying rather than interesting and thought-provoking.

I would definitely recommend this movie if you like films with lost of jump scares and intense, quiet moments!

Starts out very slow and you have to keep with it.

Ok so this was fun I'll be honest, if you watch it like a fiction film, the movie moves at a good pace and they try to explain all their ideas so it was pretty entertaining.

This has so much potential but it was so predictable and boring for the last 1/3 of the movie.

Two completely different movies but both excellent in their genre and thoroughly enjoyable at a time when we all can do with being entertained Ms Moss , who I have enjoyed in the Top of the Lake series , is an admirable actor with hopefully much more to come .

The movie really should have dropped "the" from its title to save the confusion.

So intense and Moss really did a great job.

It got a bit better as it went on but don't waste your money renting this, wait until it's on Netflix for a wet afternoon.

It starts right into it and besides a noticeable lull midway, holds a steady pace.

Empty Space Can Be Terrifying If Done Right .

I'm not going to give anything away, but it captures your attention starting with the opening credits, keeping you on the edge of your seat for the majority of the film, all the way to the shocking ending.

The only storyline and characters that are enjoyable are the side character cop and daughter.

And save yourself the time & money it would take to watch this truly uninspired bore of a movie.

Worth watching, for sure.

The ending is so predictable!

What we got instead was a poor and very political movies, that consisted mainly of plot holes, flat characters, post-modern stereotypes and predictable shortcomings that leave much to be desired in all areas.

A Thrilling Masterpiece .

This version starts slow, continues to be slow, then ends with a great big boring.

This was a good modern take on the original movie, it was creepy and thrilling.

Good, enjoyable.

RIVETING NEW TAKE ON AN OLD STORY .

He frames shots expertly to give empty space a personality.

I should've trusted those bad reviews I read before watching the movie, and believed them when they said it was a waste of time...

But like that this film is pretty slow and can drag a little bit at times and I kind of wish the plot moved a little bit faster so we could get to the more exciting bits a little bit quicker.

The only thing I would say is that after the first scene, the next 10ish minutes are pretty slow and boring, but it gets very exciting afterward and I love this movie.

The plotting path was so thrilling and entertaining and the acting was massively done.

Moss is great as are all the actors, the cinematography is beautiful as is the production in general and it's thrilling and scary.

Maybe without her it would have been a different movie, but as it is I enjoyed it and just take the "impossible" for granted.

Outside of that - predictable and full of holes.

It was Abit slow at times which was a little frustrating.

It's boring and about 40 minutes too long.

Elisabeth Moss turns in a bland performance full of baffling decisions, which is partly the fault of poor scripting.

It's super lazy and tiresome.

The film had some situations that were "predictable" for sure.

I felt the final 30 mins as well felt a little dragged out.

Classic story told through eyes of Leigh and his touch of science was great if you come over some slight issues that present themselves along the way, but considering how movie is made and what it is about you will forget about them and that is what is all about focusing on what this movie does best and that is making you scared of empty space.

Elizabeth Moss turns in a riveting performance, aided by slick camera word and spine-tingling sound effects to give the viewer a terrifying viewing experience.

Definitely worth watching.

Was boring.. Kate is average in this movie!

The motives for our main characters are weak and confusing.

Just watch the original or better still the far superior HOLLOW MAN if want an updated gripping version of the invisible man.

It was actually a pretty predictable movie.

So, if you want a nice quiet movie to play on repeat while you fall asleep, turn volume down halfway and drift off, you wont be missing anything.

Wow the main character was boring.

This is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

So to summarize, the movie seemed to take forever to get going, was very predictable, and seemed to never want to end.

This strategy in turn makes the movie very interesting and the opposite of slow.

Although it stumbles with some logic issues, continuity mistakes and predictable elements, the film keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes your heart beat faster with each minute that passes.

but then it got boring and so slow.

The movie started off slow and then finally built up to something interesting.

Slow and unrealistic .

Fell asleep 13 times.

Thrilling and well paced .

Beginning was slow and slow through out.

It's quite frankly boring tbh.

The movie does have some of these qualities, mostly in the first half, but eventually it just turns into a sci-fi action movie ending with a poorly acted antagonist in a predictable final scene.

Def worth the watch if you enjoy blumhouse movies and aren't an ahole that complains about movies with a female lead

An all too predictable script leads to the titular character hanging around being a minor annoyance for a few days before making an abrupt left turn into Michael Meyers territory.

It is a deep mystery for me how this movie reached a score of 7.4. The idea might be interesting, but the action is so slow and most of the scenes are empty.

Save yourself a mind numbing dull 2 hours and watch anything else.

They're two dimensional and uninteresting, so you don't care much what happens to them.

predictable .

Thrilling, stunning and worth the 2 hours .

I had enough of horror films once the start of January began as The Grudge, Brahms: The Boy II and Fantasy Island were all released and did not satisfy me that much due to their lack of story, tone and paranoia.

A little predictable on the story but still has cool foreshadowing of a fine and thrilling ride.

Slow pace, pretty flat thru-out and nothing I'd want to watch again.. Just feels like a slot filler.

I think it is on the edge of a pg 13 and an r movie.

Worth the watch.

Overall, i enjoyed it, the missing plot did not important to understand the whole plot

Was ANYONE surprised when she opened her portfolio only to find it empty?

There are a lot of slow-moving scenes in the movie, which can make you follow the main character and wonder if the seemingly empty place is really hiding something.

Not gory, rapey, etc. It's starts a little slow to build up the story.

There are some instances where the movie does devolve into a typical horror flick, but it would redeem itself quickly with another thrilling twist.

A room full of monkeys randomly tapping on keyboards for 1000 minutes could produce a more compelling and suspenseful plot.

One of the worst movies I have seen over the last few years.

Other than that, enjoyed it!

Due to the slow pace, the tension just wasn't there.

Slow start.

It's original and has a great and intense plot.

intriguing premise .

This movie will definitely move your nerves and make you cringe as it is suspenseful, gripping and heart-stopping.

8.5/10. So a B+ just for taking a dumb premise and making it effective and entertaining.

Worth watching .

One of the worst movie I ever sow.

Best thrills are the cliche of making sound go from 0 to 120%.

Elisabeth Moss is fantastic and does her best to save the film from falling into predictable and cheap horror tropes.

To conclude, and to reiterate my first point, 'The Invisible Man' did fill my night with a very entertaining and enthralling watch, and as I do joke about Hollow Man, it isn't nearly as well executed as The Invisible Man.

Very intense atmosphere with great cinematography.

That scene was totally unexpected and well played.

Never heart racing, gripping the armrest, just waiting in total suspense type feelings.

If you like suspense this is an intense AF surprise - one of the best I've seen in years!

Anxiety-ridden, on the edge of my seat, in a good way .

Looking at an empty room for the invisible man is intriguing for about two minutes.

In short : I love everything about this movie, the acting, the cinematography, the twist and turns, how the entire movie builds up, how it made me sit on the edge of my seat wishing I had a pillow to hide behind at times, captures you from the very first second until the very end....

Boring .

The heroine's counterattack looks particularly exciting.

I thought it was a pretty solid film and consistently gripping.

This movie was slow and boring!

It's very slow and the story is not very good.

In this way, Whannell can instil fear and dread simply by pointing the camera at an empty room without the need for any FX, VFX, makeup, elaborate props etc (which no doubt played a significant role in keeping the budget down to a minuscule $7 million).

The phone in the attic was easily the most suspenseful part of the movie and honestly one of the most suspenseful horror scene in a while.

Explaining anything about this movie will waste more of my time and yours, WALK AWAY!!!

Very watchable and entertaining .

Disjointed and a horrible storyline.

A multitude of slow pans and still shots imbue each scene with a lingering sense of terror that never ceases to grab hold of you.

predictable...

What a waste of time.

Slow start, slow middle, slow ending.

I think her interpretation is surprisingly realistic and intense.

The lead became very very annoying and tedious after the first 15 minutes with her painful expressions and her best mate cop and his daughter I'm sure had no previous acting experience.

Waste of your time.

Mainly in the atmosphere to create, a lot of slow movement of empty lens, will let you follow the protagonist together paranoid, will feel that the seemingly empty place, whether there is really something hidden.

Whoever gave this bad reviews wasn't watching the right movie, very entertaining movie and brilliantly acted

This movie is absolute garbage really but I'm giving it a 5/10 because I felt like it had some genuine potential to be good had the actors played it with some more emotion and the storyline been a lot more gripping.

Too predictable with too many "goofs".

And I mean that with utmost enthusiasm, this film provided a riveting, jaw-dropping and side-winding experience of deceit, manipulation and disturbia.

A contrived plot with no one having clear motivation for the atrocious things that they do.

And it's far too long.

The story goes very slow that I fell asleep halfway.

Gripping from beginning to end.

Nothing happens in the first 30 minutes of this 2 Hour movie .

I liked the unexpected twists and turns, the plot was clever and the filming was good.

Gripping from start to end...

The first 20 minutes is very engaging and builds up a lot of promise.

One relief is, Whannell doesn't ever leave us in a state of bewilderment in front of his mean, handsomely-styled and absorbing thriller.

It's super lazy and tiresome.

With The Invisible Man, from Blumhouse and directed by Leigh Whannell, I hoped that it was a sign of Universal taking a more humble approach and letting said movie be a movie focused on telling a thrilling & good story that's not trying to set up a cinematic universe (an approach that allowed many of the Universal Monsters films to be regarded as classics in the 1st place).

Really engrossing and enjoyable.

Highly recommend it!!

it was entertaining and it met the objective.

Even tho it was a bit slow at times it never got really boring.

The combination of slow measured pans across empty rooms with moments of silence interrupted by ear shattering synthetic booms received many jumps and gasps in the theatre.

An engaging edge of the seat horror thriller.

Predictable and badly made film.

There's nothing wrong with a character being vulnerable and mousy but, when they can't even make the simplest rational remark to defend themselves (because of terrible writing and bad directing) it just gets completely unrealistic, ridiculous, and to me, unwatchable.

The Invisible Man takes classic horror tropes, adds in a new scream queen from Elizabeth Moss, and creates and thrilling retelling of the H.

As a lover of action movies, even the slow parts of this film (sometimes leaning more to Drama than its Horror/Mystery/Sci-Fi tag) kept me watching.

Simple stunning.

Don't waste your money, story totally sucked ...

This is one of the worst movies I've seen in years.

Was okay most scenes were to dark to see much the story line is confusing

Some of the woke viewers take issue with the men are bad narrative but I found it entertaining enough.

Then Cecilia turns into 'dumb horror chick' cliche for most of the movie and misses several opportunities to expose the antagonist (who has severely messed her life up without anyone being the wiser) by simply taking tooo long to move, or leaving clean evidence behind.

This movie has a few issues: the pace is ridiculously slow, the plot is ridiculous, and the ending is ridiculously predictable.

There's also plenty of suspense going on as the film keeps you guessing on whether the Invisible Man is in the same room as Cecilia or what he was gonna do and when, which would lead to some well-executed scares, some intense scenes of Kass confronting the Invisible Man, and even scenes that are surprising (I can say that there were a couple moments that totally caught me off guard when I saw it in the theater).

A complete waste of time.

Slow and tension building is crucial though.

But the story line left me bored.

Boring and predictable.

The movie is just plain boring.

So don't waste your time, it's rubbish and real stupid and unrealistic and just plain silly.

Cast are ok but no stand out performance, its hard to believe someone capable of creating an invisible suit would then find joy in opening and closing doors, switching lights on an off and just mess with an ex rather than actually do epic things with or get recognition for.. I'm sure it'll appeal to many but for me it was a bore.

However, my biggest problem is that what starts as a fascinating study of the lasting ramifications of domestic violence ultimately descends into genre stupidity, with a ridiculously over-the-top final act that says nothing of interest about anything.

Excruciatingly dull.

Another great movie from the House of Blum- The Invisible Man is Enjoyable, Thrilling, full of suspense and tension, it has Genuine scares instead of Jump scares, Elizabeth Moss delivers a great performance.

The fact that the abuse was told and not shown for me was more effective, Adrian controlled everything that Cecilia did, so you understood her pain and her fear making it a compelling story arc.

Slow burner, then explodes.

This movie is mostly thrilling from the first till the last minute, thank you!

The film is gripping, and entertaining.

The plot just reveals itself 30 minute into the movie and the wholes thing becomes a waste of time.

This was easily one of the most entertaining movies I have seen in a months, and certainly is not worse than a 5.

Worst movie i've ever seen .

Long shots down hallways and extended shots on empty space build tension and a sense of voyeurism due to the innate nature of the beast.

The rest is predictable and just lots of nonsense.

One fine day she escapes and what happens next is expect the unexpected.

Boring.

An intense thinker-thriller could have been created with better writing and direction, where the audience goes back and forth between thinking there is an invisible man and thinking our protagonist is crazy.

All been done before but an enjoyable thriller 7/10 .

Very suspenseful and a modern take on a classic horror tale.

Dont waste your time watching this .

I had done my research, (and by research I mean watch dozens of reviews), and it seemed like my type of toe-clenching suspenseful movie.

Don't waste you time.. .

Nothing happens in the first 30 minutes of this 2 Hour movie, and then she starts "interacting" with the "invisible man", ridiculous.

Unexpected greatness.

the opening is suspenseful and full of intrigue but mid way through the plot becomes a bit predictable and absurd.

No plot, no cohesive story, just low-class anti-male propaganda.

I found the entire film very compelling and full of suspense, with fantastic visuals and an excellent soundtrack.

But I must say it takes some talent to make a classic tale of invisible man in to boring "me too" special snowflake piece of trash.

Perhaps the movie was a little too long and some of the tropes may take you out of it, but it was creative and had some unexpected twists, despite the trailers giving most of the movie away.

I just found it all very predictable, weakly-characterised, mildly absurd film entertainment.

Also the plot leads to an interesting and unexpected end.

Anyone with an average IQ and above should find this movie to be extremely dull and boring.

The movie reminded me of Gone Girl but with more predictable turn of events.

the best topic the worst movie .

I wanted to walk out of the theater so many times and demand my $10 back.

That get's boring really fast.

But the film moved, it was "slow" and some people are saying.

Is the movie predictable - oh YES!

this is such a predictable and typical story line...

You would find yourself holding your breath in many scenes, most of which are just empty rooms and hallways.

Had the film gone down the 'psychological' route then it would have ended up a more entertaining viewing experience than it did.

While perhaps not perfect, it's suspenseful to a nail-biting degree, it's expertly-directed, Elisabeth Moss is fantastic, and the story was very engaging from beginning to end.

In the end she kills him in the most predictable way possible and the villain, who is supposed to be a genius and who has been ahead of her every step of the way during the movie, just sits there and lets it happen.

Really dark in places, so hard to see, very slow moving, awful script, and comes with the added bonus of some wooden acting in places.

There needed to be a reason to keep Adrian from simply killing her to get revenge, that would have made for a much shorter and most likely more enjoyable film, and his wanting to be a father at any cost was the key to that.

Don't waste your time on a predictable "thriller"

This movie was a bit entertaining in the beginning although the Title reveals it all...

confusing .

Like many of the more recent movies this also is a woke piece of garbage, filled with plotholes and lack of story or character development.

It wasn't only the loss of the plot that got to me, there was many potholes, the movie could've been solved at the start (I won't say how because of spoilers) but when that happens in a movie and the character decisions are dumb it makes the 2 hour movie you just watched feel pointless.

Could it be more drawn out?

Had my on the edge of my seat and swimming in anxiety: as a true thriller should!

Cheap and predictable .

Make the film unwatchable!

There are some good visuals, the way the camera moves and shows empty rooms is eery, it adds suspense and a sense of the unknown.

Bad predictable plot and super corny soundtrack and effects.

The opening scene nearly gives you a stroke even though literally nothing happens.

While predictable at points, this film exceeded my expectations and would definitely recommend.

Her mousy character just became so tedious annoying and I had to switch this off.

Overall, an entertaining movie and I love how they change the premise from the original and made it more modern.

Just boring ...

::4 yawns::

It had me on the edge of my seat at all times; leaving me no moment of boredom.

The story is cliched and predictable to a shocking degree, right down to the plot twist that adds absolutely nothing to the story, bits and pieces stapled from better and smarter Horror movies.

I believe it was Frank Capra who said, "There is only one crime in cinema and that is to bore your audience.

But from then on, what I saw was Ofred from the handmaid's tale Vs a rubbish Predator topped off with a Scream-esque twist that was as pointless as it was daft.

A Thriller Worth Watching .

Some of the more suspense filled scenes and confrontations were so fake and contrived.

In fact the first hour is boring to say the least and the rest is eventually a killing feast.

The story is simple and even though the plot is familiar it's suspenseful with some nice twists.

The movie is irritating with how illogical and predictable it is.

In my opinion, this would be a very good plot twist, but without it, I felt like the end was boring and predictable.

Moss', whose transition from helpless to scared to a woman seeking retribution (for everything she's gone through) is what makes The Invisible Man a moderately entertaining flick.

The plot does not proceed fast, so you may get bored after a while.

Kept me on the edge of my seat.

Sorry but this film was so slow to begin with, I had lost all interest after 10 minutes.

The whole movie is so boring, predictable, slow and quiet.

To conclude, this movie had a compelling plot and the twists were surprising and unprecedented.

It is genuinely scary with fabulously crafted, intense sequences!

Did I find it thrilling?

Reinvented and brought in to the 21st Century, l thoroughly enjoyed it with enough jumps and tension and great Sound affects, a great modern interpretation with invisible man being the antagonist and harassing his ex wife in complete disguise, gripping and intense a film to make the original Universal Horror movies proud

But after a slow start it had shocks and jumps galore.

Very enjoyable and totally underrated.

Incredibly exciting movie that does not resemble all the others.

Around halfway through the story turns away from a suspenceful psychological thriller and shapes itself into a rather generic, mainstream, twisty and predictable piece.

She's outstanding at selling fear, confusion, and sadness.

The film was absolutely stunning, just great!

The movie was to long, and it was very predictable and boring at parts.

To say The Invisible Man starts out slow would be generous.

It has fantastic acting, writing, and it is packed to the brim with tension that will have you on the edge of your seat.

There are some plot holes and some logic holes but all in all it is a suspenseful and very watchable film.

It is entertaining enough, suspenseful in some places, and most of the acting and special effects are pretty great.

I would pass on this snore fest.

Slow with many plot holes .

This film had the potential to be a very good one as everything about it was good except its pace which was very slow resulting it in being quite cumbersome to watch at times especially in the second half.

The camera angles and use of the empty space made me feel anxious and always looking for The Invisible Man.

Like so many other reviewers here, I feel that this was the most boring, awful drivel Hollywood has produced ever.

The film starts very slow and does not exaggerate with ignoring scientific Facts like the Kevin Bacon Version did for example.

Don't waste your time.

" It was so bad that I actually fell asleep!

save your money.

"The Invisible Man" was just a massive swing and a miss from writer and director Leigh Whannell in terms of it being an entertaining or enjoyable movie for me to watch.

Bored after 10 minutes .

But apart from the ending I really enjoyed it.

Everything that follows is entirely predictable.

The story is really scary and really thrilling.

I watched this movie for bit of popcorn fun, what I got unexpectedly thrilling psychological horror.

Very slow paced movie.. .

While Whannell and his team expertly shot this movie that's so full of tension, its also a little too slow for its own good sometimes.

Leigh Whannell presents us with a great knowledge about what anticipation, empty space, paranoid behavior and amazing leading actor can to to magnify effects of something that we expect to levels of unexpected.

The movie itself is very suspenseful and there are a couple of plot twists to keep things interesting.

Boring, predictable, bad editing, plot holes,just trash.

Worst movie ever .

Cliché.

On the edge of your seat...

Style The style of the film is incredibly suspenseful and thrillling, the film sucks you into the atmosphere and makes you feel the same way as Elizabeth Moss's character in the film and feeling scared as her.

So Intense...

But, sure, let's for a moment suspend all our disbelief and just say that "a wizard did it" and look at what is left: a horrible contrived plot with as many holes as are there analogies about things with holes in them.

Very poor and boring.

It's a waste of time, excepted and disappointing ending...

The staying with friends, seemed great, but felt slow.

The movie is boring and out of logic.

Outstanding lead from Elisabeth Moss in this genuinely suspenseful piece of cinema.

From the opening scene all the way until the first reveal, I was on the edge of my seat squirming with anxiety.

Great suspenseful movie made incredibly better by the score.

Mind blowing stupidity .

Lastly, this movie tries to do a plot twist but fails miserably as the plot twist was very predictable, weak and serves no purpose.

It's just a collection of stupid characters and situations, mixed with every cliche you can imagine.

I enjoyed it.

This film was so intense to watch that it feels like you are living the same nightmare as the lead character.

A genuinely enjoyable thriller .

Then becomes so predictable.

Long drawn out, boredom .

This nonsense movie is a total waste of time.

Amazing acting, great directing, gripping score, and awesome pacing.

Good if you suffer from insomnia .

Not a single redeeming quality, besides the dog, who was the most interesting part of this senseless, pointless, stupid plot full of holes the size of Texas.

Probably the stupidest, worst movie I have ever seen!

ruined talent so idiotic pathetic unrealistic boring and dull end.

What makes it stand out from all its predecessors is the awesome sound design that keeps you on the edge of your seat without any major visual imagery.

Boring, predictable, full of holes.

Great movie with some predictable scenes, but I enjoyed it.

Simple twist at the end and you care for the character and the position she's in and the story itself is still intriguing although there are plenty of plot holes making me question certain things.

The ending is pretty predictable.

Poor acting, poor script and excessive amount of money to bring this dung to life, so to waste your two hours of free time.

This movie was about 30 minutes too long and pretty much every twist was super predictable.

and this is the worst movie I watched in years.

Confusing plot.

Possibly worst actress I've ever seen topped with boring plot makes it 1/10!

Slow start, builds, then fails.

What I got instead was a boring mess.

But no, I sat on the edge of my seat, startled, and shook, for 2 solid hours!

After the slow start I hadn't been expecting so much action.

Some questionable suspense scenes but kept me on the edge.

The pacing is really terrible after like an hour i thought this should be over soon and felt bored.

I wouldn't give two stars.. Total waste of time.

Enjoyable .

This movie is nearly unwatchable from top to bottom.

Wife was on the edge of hr seat.

I enjoyed it very much.

The beautiful shots and compelling dialogue with acting across the board make for quite a ride.

One of the worst movies I have seen in a while.

It's so predicable and it gets boring real fast.

Basically, the ending was very predictable and also crap although I had to laugh at the close up face of the euphoric Moss at the end as the camera lingered there for far too long.

This suspenseful film was also great fun.

After that, the rest of the story was pretty much predictable.

It was an extremely entertaining and emotionally satisfying horror/psychological thriller which made the best of it's very small budget and masterful directionJust go see it

Everything is predictable, you see the jump scares coming from a mile away.

In my opinion it was good fun, suspenseful with a little added gore.

Above all, I liked the slow burn pace of the picture which was totally in place.

The end of the deal is still very feminist, very enjoyable.

Excellent directing and a really intriguing story about abuse and how it affects people.

Totally unexpected.

Entertaining .

This was very entertaining remake that included aspects of the previous movie plots of Hollow Man, and Invisible Man themes, and it worked very well.

Ends up way too long for what it does.

So, overall an amazing modern version of The Invisible Man far from perfect but enjoyable during our lockdown time we live.

Boring movie and very low budget.

It literally kept my spouse and I on the edge of our seats, guessing and craving for more to unfold in the movie.

INTENSE .

There are some good visuals, the way the camera moves and shows empty rooms is eery, it adds suspense and a sense of the unknown.

started the 2nd and just wanted to leave the room when she came on screen....

It is so slow, boring and completely illogical.

The subtle scares and the slow introduction of the invisible man made this a great chilling thriller.

You are boring, start putting Asians male characters.

Just ok, predictable .

How the director is able to put Elizabeth Moss in a room by herself and have the audience on the edge of their seat with baited breath.

Also, the third act is actually has the most intriguing twists I could have expected as it explains everything from start to finish.

REALLY TOO SLOW.

Pretty boring.. .

BEST THRILLER SO FAR FOR 2020 SUPERB INTENSE AND PHENOMENAL DIRECTING A MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN .

On the other hand, the small cast worked wonders, and I was on the edge of my seat for, definitely, the first two thirds of the film.

Disappointing, predictable, an hymn to conjugal violence .

Got slower......

Predictable and mostly boring .

Very suspenseful throughout.

Then the film gets very intense.

If the movie was engaging, these are probably not questions I even would have though of.

It hits the ground running with a heart thumping opening scene, sprinting and tiptoeing alternately over 2 hours with plenty of fresh ways to keep you on the edge of your seat, as well as unpredictable twists which are well placed throughout the plot.

After that though - the dialogue fires up, the characters come alive and the movie starts to churn around Elizabeth Moss's increasing disbelief and confusion, as "something" appears to alter her reality at a whim.

A bit mystery, but too freaking slow!

It becomes a bit predictable towards the end, although for some people might find that the suspense is still there.

It's a bore and a waste of time, my time.

Don't waste your time with this one.

It seemed to take forever to get going and I found it very formulaic.

But then got bored again 3 minutes after each "oh wow" moment.

Storyline very weak and Predictable.

A stellar slow burn that never bores.

Would have more exciting to have watched actual moss for 2 hours!!.

This was absolutely the worst movie I've ever seen.

Don't waste your time like I did.

too drawn out and slow in the first hour.

I think there should be a better way to unfold the plot, yet they choose the most boring one : let the MC describes about the whole plot4.

Not just scary, enjoyable if you are sci-fic fans.

SLOW.

You don't have to take my word for it though, if you want to waste 2 hours of your life, then please by all means go ahead and see if you can even watch it till the end without wanting to turn it off halfway through.

Strong film and intense to watch.

it's domestic abuse revenge storyline worked well enough but It contained every cliche imaginable.

After only 25 minutes, it became boring.

Very predictable.

worst movie I've seen on the last 5 years.

TOO SLOW.

Nice camera work of panning to empty spaces and conveying feeling of is someone there?

Predictable from the beginning to the end.

It was incredibly slow in the beginning first half, most of it was predictable, and the build up towards the ending was sub-par.

Right from the opening sequence, the story moves forward at a breakneck pace with twists and turns at the most unexpected of occasions.

By review title I mean good movie to help you fall asleep.

Essentially it works, but I just would've liked a little more on all of our characters, besides our lead, because she gets more than enough enjoyable character development.

This is a quiet, suspenseful and engaging thriller in a time where it seems jump scares and gore reign.

And while the ending was predictable, I still thought the film was very suspenseful and a lot of fun!

The was way too long, the dialogue was pulled so long it the point it got annoying.

There were some nice shots here but I thought it was a bit too slow.

I love a good horror but this snooze fest shouldn't even have the honor of being labeled a "horror.

It looks and feels just like any generic, boring thriller of the past 14 years, made worse by the fact it's riding the coat tails of one of the great operatic classics of Horror.

Don't waste your time like I did.

More of a thriller than a horror but engrossing .

So predictable...

but was is worth watching.

We're supposed to believe that this multi-millionaire tech genius has come up with this intricate yet flawed plot to come back from the grave in order to keep the very average and boring Cecilia under his control.

Started slow......

The ending was totally predictable given the amount of time left in the movie.

The thrilling sensation runs through from the first minute of thunderous shooting to the last minute of the heroine's smiling opening ending.

as a thriller movie, it was really thrilling and made me keep watching and getting surprising.

Very boring and very predictable film.

Terrible acting, totally predictable storyline, and way too long.

I am adicted to movies, I tried to have an open mind, but this is one of the worst movies I ever saw.

The bolt is full of wholes, the main actor acting is so over and unnatural and the story of so predictable.

From start to end it is so predictable, both dialogue and action.

It is a complete waste of time.

Extremely boring with very weak plot.

At one point when you think it's going nowhere suddenly it lifts up and take you on another ride.

This movie will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

Nothing is scary, and everything is predictable and naive, like the director never came out of puberty...

This didn´t do it for me as i found it very predictable.

While I did really like what they chose to do with the ending, the overall arc of the plot was very predictable.

I just got back from a nearly empty theater in order to see this, and I wish I hadn't paid.

Whannell seems bored by the second part of his own movie, like he doesn't care for it anymore.

' moments that weren't even that because it was so gosh darn predictable.

the only thing that disappointed me was that it was a little predictable (1 viewing, 6/13/2020)

The music is also inviting, adding a disturbing nature, and used to build anticipation - the anticipation often drawn out to gain maximum effect which proves more beneficial than any jump scare I've ever seen.

This movie had every chance in the world of being predictable!

Its called cliche and generally is mark of generic or uninspired writing.

GRIPPING STUFF .

Waste of time bad movie i give it a 4/10 .

Too many panning shots of empty rooms and travel time feel like padding.

She collapses during the interview and they discover Diazepam in her system, the same drug she gave Adrian to make him sleep when she escaped.

Started Off Slow, Got Interesting, and Then Stupid .

What I found instead was a disjointed mess with a truly irritating lead actress and a fairly inept supporting cast.

A huge part of such amazing tension was birthed from a simple yet effective shot where simply nothing happened in frame, really emphasizing that invisible man facade and bringing to life Cecilia's constant anxiety to the audience.

Till the one third of the movie me and my girl were on the edge, excited.

Benjamin Wallfisch, of course, composed the score and he's good at creating suspenseful music to keep the audience on edge.

The best topic the worst movie.

Then in the middle part it drags out, and becomes really boring.

It Had Me On The Edge Of My Seat .

Very slow, very boring, lost interest in 1st fifteen minutes, slept in another, Please don't waste your time.

It had a painfully slow start, a frankly ugly main character, and numerous plot holes.

A straightforward, low-budget, hide & seek melodrama, "The Invisible Man" will keep you guessing during its gripping first hour or so until you start spotting its plot holes.

Typically stories like this will show the hero's struggle against the villain, in this they're no different to each other, there's no hero just 2 villains, no redeamable quality's in either of them, just like all the "gangster" movies whose characters no one cares about because there is nothing for anyone to identify with, just another pointless story about pointless characters.

Boring, dumb, dull and it sucks.

and very enjoyable.

The suspense throughout the film is intense, often times putting you at the edge of your seat and the ending is quite satisfying.

It's one of those thriller that starts off well and then gets progressively predictable.

The next few minutes make up for it, gets pretty intense right after that.

I enjoyed it.

Thrilling, just enough suspense, and something that I really just wasn't expecting .

Cons: Felt like movie was being dragged.

My whole family enjoyed it.

Entertaining .

Side performances and plot were engrossing, overall I enjoyed the film to an extent.

By this rather slow building the story of a woman escaping a manipulative partner comes into view.

Why bother telling a story like this in such a predictable way.

Really enjoyed it .

Don't waste your time.

The plot of the novie is not backward or forward, but it is mixed, this what makes movie unpredictable.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

The Invisible Man is basically a couple hours of thrilling, not really horror, about an abusive relationship between a woman and an invisible man, that's the sci-fi part in this movie.

It pretends to answer with a few "clever" lines but it actually doesn't, just confusing.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Moss's performance, which is excellent, especially given that so much of it is her on her own reacting to nothing whatsoever, having to communicate confusion, fear, anger etc through little more than her expression.

The worst movie I ever saw .

The camera work is done in a very intelligent way that is suspenseful.

Next the film had effective uses of gore and a very entertaining final act.

The plotting path was so thrilling and entertaining and the acting was massively done.

Great Elizabeth Moss, atmospheric suspenseful thriller.

Suspenseful at times...

Don't waste you time.

Lacking in all departments and, quite frankly, tedious.

The film could have turned out to be way more entertaining with a few tweaks.

The colour palette and onscreen vibrancy is dull and muted.

More than invisible, this film is unwatchable.

Absolutely riveting and will leave you breathless....

I was never so happy to have expectations shattered, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time until the credits started.

It's definitely an entertaining thriller I'd recommend watching.

He's experience in the genre (with both the Saw and Insidious franchises under his belt) shows in tense moments of empty hallways and open frames.

The 3rd act felt much quicker but first two acts were hella thrilling.

Since "the game" movie , i think i haven't seen a movie that insults logic like this , the very first scene is the only think maybe that was good in this movie, after that it's extremely boring , no good dialogues , veryyy slow story building and i couldn't resist myself from using my phone cause even if you skip a scene or two or even thee it still wouldn't make any difference cause most scenes are useless to the story , the acting was weak from all actors ,i felt no tension, no connection.

Enjoyed it

I was hoping that I would see a suspenseful, creepy horror movie, perhaps with some psychological elements to it (maybe something to make the viewer think Cecilia's really just insane).

The Invisible Man will keep you on your toes and it is a thrilling movie.

It's tense, mysterious, and exciting.

A bit over fetched but still entertaining to an extend.

Regardless the first fight scene in the suit was intense and impressive even if it was bit odd that the Lanier family would leave Celica alone in their own house.

Could be a choice if you are bored to death and about to lose your will to live.

How he builds atmosphere with POV shots, empty background shots, sounds and music.

Then things slow down, way down, stumbles along with more low points than high points and finally wrapping up with logical plot holes too great to ignore.

consistently suspenseful and unpredictable.

The acting is unbearable especially the lead actress...

Dont waste your money

Intriguing, a thriller that kept me entartained.

Elisabeth Moss as the persecuted wife, gets to bring out her scared, angry and mad faces as the body count increases and the situations become even more ridiculous and predictable.

The movie can also be predictable at times.

Boring and slow .

Cecilia, as a character, is given a full arc as we follow her journey of slow recovery from beginning to end.

Same long drawn out shots of nothing hoping to build some kind of tension.

The story kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and it kept me wanting to learn more or see what was going to happen next.

Don't waste your money

First half weak horror, second half bad actioner and way too long .

Elizabeth Moss does abused, crazy and fragile woman on the edge of cracking up really well.

The rest of this movie's horror magic is in the cinematography, editing and special FX, all of which seem to be nailed near to perfection, setting mood with empty spaces, impending danger and flawless, impressive special effects.

Another problem was that it started out slow.

She sells Cecilia's pain and confusion, her frustration and her nagging paranoia.

Besides the great Elisabeth Moss performance, and some scary scene, everything is predictable - for me- and some part of the plot are without any logic or explanation, and, maybe, pace is bit too slow.

In addition, the score probably was one of the most riveting and befitting of the movie it accompanies that I've heard in a long time.
