Invisible Man Reviews Are Up, See What Critics Are Saying

Invisible Man Reviews Are Up, See What Critics Are Saying

Not that long ago, actor Johnny Depp was going to star in The Invisible Man, another entry in Universal’s would-be interconnected set of monster movies dubbed The Dark Universe. That obviously didn’t happen as the critical failure and commercial disappointment of Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy forced Universal to rethink its plans. But the studio didn’t write off these characters entirely and is instead now focusing on smaller, filmmaker driven approaches. We will see the first example of that with this weekend’s The Invisible Man.

Hailing from Upgrade writer-director Leigh Whannell, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss as Cecilia, a woman who, with the help of her sister and childhood friend, escapes her abusive ex, a brilliant and wealthy scientist. Things take a turn when he seemingly commits suicide, leaving her a large part of his fortune. Only Cecilia suspects that his death was a hoax and that he is now hunting her. The problem is that she can’t prove it because he’s invisible. So, how will the first post-Dark Universe movie fare?

The first reviews for The Invisible Man are in and while the titular character may be imperceptible to the naked eye, Leigh Whannell's film is a must-see. CinemaBlend's own Eric Eisenberg was really taken with the film, giving The Invisible Man 4.5 out of 5 stars in his review and saying:

At the heart of what makes The Invisible Man work as well as it does is an ingenious approach to the specific terror that the monster can inspire, and the way in which that approach is applied to a very zeitgeist-heavy story.
