Even for mature viewers, this is a flop.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that even if they customarily take their teens to R-rated movies, they should think twice about letting kids see this one -- strong, pervasive scenes of violence, gruesome horror, and adult sexuality make this inappropriate for all but the most mature viewers.

Rotten: The movie proceeds by the hoariest sci-fi clichs.

Kevin Bacon starred with Kevin Costner in JFK (1991)...who was one of the star cast members in 3000 Miles to Graceland with Courtney Cox...who used to attend summer camp as a child with Chip Brown...who used to work with me at my last job. There I did it in 4!!! Lmao! Oh yeah... the movie was okay....

A real wasted opportunity. The story was sound enough but instead of exploring the possibilities of megalomania a person could experience after invisibility they just decided that an egotistical version of Jason would be just as good and no real reason needs to be given as to why a change in character would occur at such a quick rate. Also, everyone runs in a funny way, watch it again and tell me there isn't something odd about the way they all run. Their running was better than their acting though, it would have been cheaper and probably more worth while getting in some cardboard cut-outs. A stupid film that is only worth watching if you like Bacon bits (although there are are many other films out there if you like that kind of thing). One star for, although outdated, still pretty cool effects.
