DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Thriller - Hollow Man is a special effects thriller with plenty of violence. Fans of previous Paul Verhoeven films (Starship Troopers, Total Recall, Robocop) can expect the same sort of emphasis on gory action; viewers fond of cutting edge special effects will probably enjoy the creative visuals. Those who are squeamish about violence (including violence against animals) or prefer more character to their stories will probably not be impressed.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
Hollow Man could have been a provocative examination of what that temptation of invisibility would do to one of the best of us. Instead, it's about a jerk who becomes an invisible jerk. While we can still see him, he's an obnoxious sort who makes off-color jokes and mocks the vivisection of his lab animals. Once we can't see him, he's the same guy, only now with the ability to render his obnoxiousness more directly on others. Hollow Man is awash in nifty visual tricks cleverly implemented, and has action and energy to spare. It's too bad Verhoeven and screenwriter Andrew W. Marlowe weren't interested in putting some meat on Hollow Man's bones.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At a top secret military lab, a group of brilliant young scientists have just unlocked the secret of invisibility. The team's arrogant leader, Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon), ignores the risks and decides to test the dangerous procedure on himself-only to discover his fellow scientists (Oscar® nominee Elisabeth Shue and Josh Brolin) are unable to reverse the effect.

Working around the clock, Caine's colleagues struggle to devise an antidote. But Sebastian's intoxication with his new-found power is growing, and he's come to believe his colleagues may be a threat to his very existence.
