Here’s an excerpt from James Clay’s review.
The genius in this Moss-Whannell collaboration is Cecilia always straddles the line, never to veer too far into helplessness. She did escape a compound from an evil mastermind, after all. Whannell’s dynamic direction uses the space to create a conversation with the audience, hinting at what may be looking back at you while the imagination is doing all the heavy lifting. After a bit of acting, Whannell has developed into a filmmaker. You may remember him as the other guy in the bathroom in the first SAW movie – a film in which he also wrote. Whannell finally had a breakout after 2018’s small-budgeted sci-fi actioner UPGRADE became a sleeper hit and one of the most purely entertaining films of that calendar year.
As successful as THE INVISIBLE MAN is at being a mishmash of genre elements, with a glitchy score by Benjamin Wallfisch pulsing throughout, there are a few slight elements that break the illusion a bit tonally. Namely, a bonkers police shootout that goes a little over the top. Other than that, this chilly rendition has one helluva poker face.
