When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I remember a film that was often shown on BBC One late at night. Because of my age I was gobsmacked by a man which appeared invisible, clothes seemingly running around without a body in them, a head without a body etc. Over the years that followed I found out this film was titled `Memoirs Of An Invisible Man'.

'Memoirs' centres on lax stock analyst Nick Halloway (Chevy Chase) who has become invisible as the result of being the sole person left inside a nuclear laboratory during a freak accident. Nick, even though was a smooth-talker and a generally likable character didn't really properly connect with his friends nor would he if he could. He also has no family meaning he has quite literally vanished, almost without a trace. Now, crooked CIA Agent David Jenkins (Sam Neill) is the only person who knows of Nick's current state of transparency and is trying to track him down to work as a spy and the only person Nick can turn to for help is Alice (Daryl Hannah) with whom Nick is romantically involved. Nick guides us through the story by telling his tale in narrator fashion. Hence `memoirs'.

I re-watched the film recently, years after I had first seen or even heard anything about it and I was pleased to discover that it was just as I remember. It has retained its quirky style, odd bits of humour and surprisingly the illusions of invisibility. For a special-effects heavy film that is coming up to two decades old and to remain almost entirely unfazed by time is a great achievement. Nowadays everything is full to the brim with overdone and overused CGI, it really takes out the magic of special-effects. My case being when I was watching `Memoirs' recently, I was wondering `how the hell did they do this stuff back in 1992?' E.g.

I could go on and on about this film, it's full of expecting the unexpected. Chevy Chase as Nick, does a pretty convincing job of being invisible and is very good at not being able to find his invisible clothes. It's funny, and keeps you glued to the screen waiting to see how everything will work out for Chase and Hannah, the two work very well together and appear very relaxed. Because the special FX with computers was still fairly much in its infancy, the movie must have taken ages to put together, but the final cut is really VERY good.

It's not a complicated plot to follow and a couple of scenes are easy to predict, but it is fairly timeless and will entertain for many more years. I reckon it's actually better than some of the modern films because the actors and crew would have had to work so much harder for the end result, which makes it even more enjoyable. If it seems a little unclear why Sam Niell is persuing the invisible man, I think it's because he wants to stick poor old Nick in a laboratory to find out how he became invisible and he could make use of him as a intelligence spy.

Anyway, don't underestimate it because of its age. The special effects for the early 1990s are superb. I'd just like to say that the picture on the "used" DVD (Region 2) that I have, was pin sharp and soundtrack crisp and clear.

When Memoirs was released way back in 1992, it was a major box office flop. It was universally panned by the critics, however on refelection of what we are forced to put up with now, Memoirs is not that bad a film.
It is of course directed by John Carpenter, one of the finest directors of the past 30 years, and the FX is simply stunning.

Most critics couldn't fathom seeing Chevy Chase in a straight movie rather than comedy, and harshly dismissed the movie. But the real fault here is the poor script. Now again by today's standards the script holds up pretty well, but when you're judging a film I would say that at best the script is just plain, plain poor at times.

Chase though does a decent job of proceedings, Daryl Hannah looks absolutely stunning, but gives zero to the film. It could have been any other blonde actress in all honesty. Sam Neill well he's Sam Neill, I like him but he never seems to bring anything fresh to the table.

There are some wonderful individuals scenes in the movie, and I do like an old fashioned fugitive movie, which is really what you do get here. Memoirs is a good enough film, though you can't help but think with a little chopping and changing here and a better script that Memoirs would have turned out to be the huge Hollywood blockbuster that Chase was dreaming about.

If you like Invisible Man films, then this is well worth getting, the same for fans of Carpenter. He's directed this incredibly well.

Excellent quality Blu-Ray, kept in letter box format so the full effect is preserved. Special effects surprisingly OK for a film this old - and not interfering with the plot and characters. The latter sufficiently interesting to maintain attention without quite tipping into caricature. Sam Neill is delightfully evil as a rogue agent, and there is just the right balance of suspense and humour.
