Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Struggles heroically, but unsuccessfully, to strike a balance between whimsy and pathos.

- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Friday, September 16, 2011

Fresh: Though hardly ground-breaking, this whimsical Australian entry is just endearing enough to stand out from the pack.

- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Friday, August 19, 2011

Rotten: The touches of magical realism begin to feel gimmicky. By the final frame, this romance never feels real enough.

- Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe, Thursday, August 25, 2011

This is a movie perfect for nerds! If you're one of them I bet you'll give it 100%! It is made for them! But it's not bad for others, either... It is a film where imagination is running wild. Griff is a little confused spandex donning and ass kicking character... but soon you realize that there's more to him (or maybe less?). He is a doormat at work and is mocked by the people around him, who never have a problem making fun of how uncomfortable he is or the lonely life he leads. Griff's brother Tim (Patrick Brammall) moved closer to Griff to take care of him, but he's not really excited that he had to, because it gets in the way of his social life. Melody (Maeve Dermody) is his brother's girlfriend, who isn't quite as awkward as Griff, but is strange in her own way, and believes she can phase through walls but usually ends up running into them. It was predictable that she and Griff would end up together... GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is the film like Griff himself: well meaning and adorable nerd, but ultimately a bit confused about itself and still has some growing up to do... on few levels!

A sweet/sad little flick that is greatly bolstered by a terrific performance from Ryan Kwanten as a shy office worker who has either a second job as a super hero or a very interesting inner life. That question is the motor of the story, and it's enough to keep the thing chugging along, but the whole enterprise would probably crumble if Kwanten wasn't such a captivating presence. There's a probably-too-quirky love story here as well, although it's played with grace and charm, and a not-as-convincing brothers-as-helpers story that is also acted well but starts to strain belief. But again, if you only know Kwanten from TRUE BLOOD, this movie makes one thing clear: he's the real deal.
