Filthy fun, if not much more.
60
The film becomes so much urgent nonsense, its killing spree neither cheaply thrilling nor even more cheaply cathartic. It's only gory.
50
Turns resoundingly dumb in its last 40 minutes.
50
Boasts special effects that are really spectacular - too bad it lacks flesh-and-blood characters.
42
A special-effects-and-chase-to-the-death movie, with little special about it.
40
Verhoeven, who inflicted "Showgirls" on us, skips the provacative questions raised by invisibility and goes straight to rape and murder.
38
Verhoeven's most deeply disturbing film yet.
38
The folks who made this movie apparently had nothing inside their heads, either.
25
How can we make the entire movie disappear?
25
Ultimately the title is most revealing. It's hollow, man.
25
Should have been an inaudible man movie. Every time the characters open their mouths, they hammer it deeper into the ground.
12
A terribly bad movie, one of the worst of its kind in recent years.
10
Too many special effects, many of them stomach churning; too much pornographically arranged death.
