The Invisible (2007)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Not All There

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Promising high school student Nick Powell (Justin Chatwin) tangles with the wrong enemy, the tough, but captivating Annie Newton (Margarita Levieva) and winds up beaten and left for dead in the woods. But Nick is still alive, and trapped in a ghostly state in which no one can hear or see him, and he must set things right to save his own life. Based on a 2002 Swedish movie, The Invisible contains an intriguing idea, brought only sporadically to life by director David S. Goyer (Blade: Trinity). The movie is saturated with a grotesque overuse of music (both pop and orchestral) but manages a few inspiring moments around Nick and Annie's strange relationship. One scene in a dance club is nearly worth the effort. (Note: The Invisible was not screened for the press; I caught up with it a week later at a public screening.)
