This movie has always attracted rather negative reviews, mainly due to the classic Hollywood-style "Halloween"-like ending, where the Hollow Man suddenly turns into the "Fireproof, Self-cleaning, Concussion-resistant, More-lives-than-a-videogame Berserk Man"; not to mention the overuse of the "horror movie logic", demanding that large groups of armed "heroes", easily capable of overwhelming even an invisible Alien, invariably end up splitting themselves in groups of maximum 2 people, always cornering themselves in tight quarters and dead ends, where they can be conveniently slaughtered by the villain with his/her/its bare hands/claws/appendages...
Nevertheless, if you are willing to accept this uttermost suspension of disbelief (which is almost always required before seeing ANY movie of this kind) and you just concentrate on more "technical" aspects, like a constantly growing pace and tension in the screenplay, top notch visual effects (for the times) and sound editing, convincing acting (see the funny "making of" part regarding the _very_ specific acting directions the actors were given from the director...), great cinematography, and a SUPERB, tension-rising, spine-chilling score by the late Jerry Goldsmith, (which was worth the admission ticket alone), you might be surprised at how _entertaining_ and actually _good_ this unpretentious sci-fi/horror/thriller can be (in my opinion, at least...).
That said, for the fans of this movie, the video and audio quality of this Blu-Ray version are among the highest I have experienced so far: the image is perfectly clean, with incredible sharpness and contrast, and only a negligible amount of grain (which is a nice surprise, considered that the movie was shot nine years ago).

This is a reasonably entertaining movie with stunning visual effects. It is really a modern day version of a mad scientist movie.
The plot is a little thin. It basically revolves around Kevin Bacon's character, Dr. Sebastian Caine, an egotistical, self absorbed scientific genius who, during the course of his work for the Department of Defense, has managed to render animals to an invisible state and return them to visibility. He does not reveal to the Department of Defense, his financial benefactor, that his work has succeeded. Instead, he ignores protocols and decides that the time has come to take his experimentation to the next level and try it on a human being, himself.
To make a long story short, Caine goes ahead with the human experimentation, only to find that he is unable to replicate the success he had with the laboratory animals and render himself visible again, once rendered invisible. He begins to deteriorate mentally, sinking into an inexplicable and bizarre maniacal state until he is totally out of control.
Moreover, Caine, the acknowledged genius of a scientific assemblage, is aware that he is losing it. Yet, he does nothing to assist in the discovery of what went wrong with the experiment and what could be done to correct the problem. He, instead, inexplicably leaves the solution to the self-acknowledged lesser capabilities of his colleagues. This simply does not compute with the film's portrayal of Caine's inherent character.
Moreover, there is also virtually no explanation for Bacon's rapid descent into apparent madness, where his antics range from naughty and not nice to totally evil and depraved. This is a big hole in the story, and Bacon's character reflects this omission, as the viewer is not moved to feel any compassion for him.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Feb. 2014
Format: DVD
There are movies that make you feel dirty and miserable, because there is simply nothing there to like -- not characters, plot or even a good feeling.

One good example: "Hollow Man," the loosest possible adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic novel "The Invisible Man"... except that instead of one stupid scientist, we have a whole cast of them. Gratuitous animal-abuse, rape, some great special effects and a despicable cast of annoying characters... well, it's easy to see why Paul Verhoeven hasn't made an American movie since, even if it was very profitable.

A bunch of scientists are working on an invisibility formula for the military, led by the arrogant Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon). When they successfully return a gorilla to visibility (almost killing it in the process), Sebastian decides that it's time for human trials -- and secretly has the team inject HIM with the serum. All seems to be going well... until the reversion therapy fails. Sebastian is stuck until his team finds a cure.

And unfortunately, the serum seems to be making him cruel, violent and psychotic -- he uses his invisibility to spy on his increasingly paranoid team, including his ex-girlfriend Linda (Elisabeth Shue) and her new boyfriend. And to stop the team from warning the military about the danger he poses, he's willing to trap and kill them one by one...

"The Hollow Man" is the loosest possible interpretation of "The Invisible Man" -- the only thing that connects them is an invisibility serum that makes you crazy and evil. But while there was only ONE scientist doing stupid things in H.G. Wells' story, this movie has SEVERAL scientists doing stupid things. A lot of stupid things.
