Product Overview

What would you do if you were invisible? How far would you go? After years of experimentation, Dr. Sebastian Caine, a brilliant but arrogant and egotistical scientist working for the Defense Department, has successfully transformed mammals to an invisible state and brought them back to their original physical form. Determined to achieve the ultimate breakthrough, Caine instructs his team to move on to Phase III: human experimentation. Using himself as the first subject, the invisible Caine finds himself free to do the unthinkable. But Caine's experiment takes an unexpected turn when his team can't bring him back. As the days pass, he grows more and more out of control, doomed to a future without flesh as the Hollow Man. Kevin Bacon, Elisabeth Shue and Josh Brolin star in this intense thriller filled with extreme suspense, terrifying twists and incredible special effects!

Review "It is my fondest dream that some day filmmakers will realize that great visual effects do not by themselves equate to a worthwhile motion picture experience. However, until that state of cinematic utopia arrives, audiences will be forced to endure movies like Hollow Man - masterpieces of visual ingenuity that are sadly lacking in many other creative categories. And, while the special effects in Hollow Man are eye-popping, the film is hamstrung by two major flaws - bad acting and an initially smart script that inexplicably devolves into derivative action and pointless violence...So it all comes back to the special effects, which are the most impressive to grace the screen since those in last year's The Phantom Menace...We see a beating heart, inflating lungs, and veins pulsing with newly-pumped blood...Because Hollow Man doesn't have a lot more to offer - there's a seemingly can't miss premise and a strong setup, but the follow-through loses momentum and the climax disintegrates."

Review "Director Paul Verhoeven has made quite a mark with sci-fi/action combos, bringing to screen Arnold Schwarzenegger's suspense-filled Martian foray, Total Recall, the critically lambasted but effects-laden and raucous Starship Troopers, and the futuristic genre classic Robocop. But Verhoeven has also helmed the Sharon Stone-launching ""eroti-thriller"" Basic Instinct...And in his latest tale about a scientist's experimentation gone awry, the director seemingly combines his taste for fantastic fiction with his penchant for toying with T & A -- regrettably to the detriment of the potentially compelling tale at hand...But more disappointing is that Hollow Man isn't much fun. It begins with inventive credits and a visceral bang (or, rather, bite), but it never again reaches that level of chilling intensity. Even in the third act, when the film enters action/survival mode, Sebastian stalks his victims along the usual murder-in-reverse-film-credits program, the pacing is dull, and the claustrophobic set becomes tedious."
