    Filthy fun, if not much more.

    Gleefully confrontational in its ludicrous, pulpy tawdriness.

    Turns resoundingly dumb in its last 40 minutes.

Everything including the story, acting, and sheer genius by the director just makes me want to pee my pants. Obviously this movie was not meant to be serious, and most of the critics did not realize this. There is no way that anyone could be stupid enough to make a movie like this and have it actually be a suspenseful thriller. That's just crazy. Keep up the good work Paul Verhoeven, I look forward to other comedies coming out directed by you. Expand

    What could you do if you were invisible? When there is no one to look back at you in the mirror... And more over: what would you do? The movieWhat could you do if you were invisible? When there is no one to look back at you in the mirror... And more over: what would you do? The movie sets a few moral questions, investigates them a bit, but in the end reaches its conclusion without great struggle or mindblowing depth. An "excuse" is given, stripping any need for psychological development, and so on. Overall, not a bad movie. Expand

    I've seen better and worse films with Mr Bacon. This film is simply another cliched foray into the sci/fi/horror type flick. Truly I've seen better and worse films with Mr Bacon. This film is simply another cliched foray into the sci/fi/horror type flick. Truly ordinary in the way it ends with the lacklustre defeat of the (by that stage) poorly computer generated Bacon. (in fact he looks like he might actually have been made out of bacon). Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Not as bad as the critics might have you think, but it's still not so good. This movie comes across to me like a wasted opportunity. The special effects and the premise are intriguing, but there are so many interesting and thought-provoking ways this movie could have gone that are left unexplored, and it instead ends up being a cliche and mediocre thriller. The last 20 minutes or so are actually entertaining, but it's all so illogical and ridiculous. Why can't you see food that Kevin Bacon eats if he's invisible? How did he survive being electrocuted and randomly appear in the elevator shaft? How did that other guy survive getting a gaping hole in his abdomen and yet 10 minutes later he was running around and climbing elevators? How did they not get hit by the rubble falling all over them? Lazy, lazy writing! Expand

    Apart from its confessedly impressive visual effects, "Hollow Man" is just a typical horror film that offers a weak script and reprehensible dialogue.

    Total Recall and Robocop are classic action movies. This movie doesn't even come close to the quality of these two movies. If you want to seeTotal Recall and Robocop are classic action movies. This movie doesn't even come close to the quality of these two movies. If you want to see a great thriller with Kevin Bacon watch Stir Of Echoes. Hollow Man has nothing unique or inventive. One of the weakest movies of 2000 and of the director's career, avoid if you have never seen it or heard of it. Expand
