The Invisible Man (2020)

So I watched this diamond when it first came out back in late February and it definitely took me for a loop with the arguments that came afterwards about the plot and the ending. I didn't feel that the movie was ambiguous at first, upon my own first and only viewing of it, but the arguments that I had proved me otherwise, I suppose. This movie was tense all the way almost until the very ending!!! There were so many moments that you don't know what's happening because you can't see what's after you, or when nothing is actually happening and yet you're still tense because you think there might be something going down. Tingles run down your spine a lot in this film which, for me, pushes it into psychological thriller genre territory. The movie didn't dive deep into one of its messages about domestic violence as much as I thought it would, but it got more into another one of its messages about the psychological after effects that it has on the abused. To show what the main character had been through in their marriage, the movie was vague with words almost, but expressed it more in Elisabeth Moss's portrayal of someone dealing with PTSD in the aftermath of the breakup. It was hard to watch someone deteriorate so miserably mentally, emotionally and physically, over the course of the film. It was even more sad to watch no one around her believe what she was going through. It was definitely a mental f*ck. Elisabeth Moss's performance is heavily praised from me for her acting in this role. She made me really believe what she was going through as a character. She also made me believe in the smarts in her character. She is a great heroine of this film, even though it's not a "final girl" kinda slasher flick! The way the new Invisible Man was created for this movie was definitely different, but that's what makes it special. The route they took to create the look of invisibility makes complete sense and looked incredibly sleek and cool. It all does make me wish there could've been a chance for a Dark Universe at some point. This new Invisible Man suit could've been used to help or harm and it would be cool to see how they would've gotten all of those Universal Pictures Monsters (like Frankenstein, Dracula, or the Wolfman) together and make a cinematic universe surrounding their films, even if it didn't turn out completely like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since that did not work out though, I am looking forward to what they do with the planned sequel, 'The Invisible Woman', eventually when that comes out one day, considering that it will extend directly off of this movie and its ideas. This movie is definitely worth a watch!

SPOILER ALERT!!! section

Some of the different arguments that I'd heard about this movie was that:

  1. Some questioned if Elisabeth's character was evil by the end of the movie. (That smile at the end when she walked away after killing Adrian when he claimed he hadn't done anything.)
  2. Was Adrian the Invisible Man at all? Or was he an innocent man killed?
  3. What was the brother's role as a whole? Was he in the suit more than Adrian was?
  4. How did Adrian not find the hidden suit at some point?

A lot of it is speculative from one watching and can be viewed from one way or another. I loved that about this movie and the ending! It made it seem as if there could be other things that happened to twist your mind around.

So, my ratings go from a scale of 1 to 5 and in a state of valued metals, gems and stones.

5- GOLD
