The Invisible man has hands down become one of my favorite thrillers, and I can even go as far as saying that it has also become my favorite of 2020. Yes, there are some plotholes here and there that should’ve been filled for the ”perfect” motion picture, however, not something that I was affected by, though certain many will point them out.
The massive tension devours you from beginning to end, and your anxiety kicks in, you got your blood pumping, heart racing, and unable to look away, craving more of the story – there wasn’t so much development as one would’ve hoped for, but I found it to be enough to be entertained by the film – plus, the camera simply adores Elisabeth moss, she has a certain sensual and delicate beauty about herself that I can’t really put my finger on, but I just become mesmerized whenever the focus is on her, plus her phenomenal acting makes it very easy to stay grabbed by the visual and story.
There has been a few remakes made of the classic, however, (personally), none that has captured my interest like this one has, with today’s modern technology and tomorrows writing and acting – you’re in for a suspenseful ride worth every minute of your time, don’t listen to the negative reviews, prepare yourself a warm cup of tea, snuggle underneath a blanket, and watch it – if not for the story, but for her because Miss Moss is superb.
As Cecilia manages to escape her abusive boyfriend she soon enough finds out that he’s taken his own life and left her his fortune.
Although, with very slight belief that she’s finally out of his hands for good, lethal occurrences start taking places, ones she has no idea how are happening but by someone she cannot see…
I loved it, I truly couldn’t keep my eyes away from the screen the entire time, though flawed, it was still a film with few twists, thrill, and the horror essence makes itself present throughout the story keeping the viewer on its toes and interested throughout. 9/10
