    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    The Invisible is, at its core, a character study, albeit one with a Patrick Swayze-in-"Ghost" paranormal edge. But it's definitely not mindless trash. If anything, the movie is too introspective, to the point that it doesn't build enough conflict or tension. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    What might work as a narrative device in a novel - the spirit guiding readers through Nick's revelations - is just plain ridiculous in a movie. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The drama never comes together in a smart, meaningful way; indeed, most revelations border on the banal. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    A fully felt, decently crafted teen B-movie melodrama, plenty preposterous in places but alive to the vibrant miseries of being young and misunderstood. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    A textbook illustration of the American movie industry's ability to take an offbeat foreign film and systematically alter or soften every provocative and original thing about it. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This may be a remake of a Swedish film from 2002 (itself based on a novel), but unspooling in the cineplex it feels more akin to one of emo godhead Conor Oberst's more emotionally mopey musical diversions. show more

    Chatwin comes off as prickly and annoyed -- they should have called this "Perturbia." show more

    Variety

    That rare mystery in which auds know everything upfront and the characters, rather than investigating, simply wait for the culprit to turn herself in. Previously adapted as Swedish thriller "Den Osynlige," Mick Davis' script brings out director David S. Goyer's emo side. show more
