Well done, great footage, and professional! Often these types of films do a good job expressing their point, but are quite cheesy or poorly filmed -- not this one! All around great film! Everyone should see it! (And I'm not sure I agree with the pg-13 rating, I think it is good even for elementary aged children -- with parental guidance -- for many follow-up conversations to help our coming generations change the world!!!)

They come off as caricaturesinstead of characters.There's also a little too much overlap in the story lines, it really takes the steam out of the sails.

Instead of that, he gives of "Memoirs of an Invisible Man", a mess of a movie and one of the few missteps of his storied career. The biggest problem here is tone, and in that respect, the movie is all over the map. Considering the director, you'd think it would be a suspense film, and there is some of that. But since the film stars Chevy Chase, you'd think it would be more of a comedy, and there's some of that as well. Mostly, however, this is a very long chase picture with some very weak bad guys. Sam Neill works for some vague, secretive government agency, but they never really feel like that much of a threat. The movie is too lightweight for that, which makes it something of a shock when he plunges to his death at the end. The special effects are plentiful and generally quite good. You wouldn't expect anything less from Industrial Light and Magic, but Carpenter's imagination feels oddly limited in the film. We're reduced to seeing the invisible Chase brushing his teeth and eating Chinese food. There is a ridiculous scene near the end with Chase's head running down the streets of San Francisco, but for the most part the effects are better than that. Carpenter takes what should have been an intriguing premise full of possibilities and works it into a mundane and routine film that's never as much fun as it should have been. "Memoirs of an Invisible Man" is a disappointing film and a rare off day for a great director. The plot gets in the way of what should have been a thrilling movie. Instead, it doesn't seem to know what it wants to be.

Who is really the killer? Also briefly tackles fate, and decisions.The plot is well-developed, with the main characters involved and their lives being introduced well before the crucial point in the movie. The tale is enhanced, if not entirely made, by the cinematography. It seems cheap, or outdated, but the rather lo fi imagery is perfect for the movie, giving it a grim, gritty feel.Solid performances all round.
