Hollow Man 2

Destination Films

The original Hollow Man was middling invisible-man sci-fi, made watchable by good special effects and director Paul Verhoeven’s penchant for creative sadism. This straight-to-video sequel was not directed by Verhoeven, and the production values, while decent by straight-to-video standards, are deficient by pretty much every other standard. Christian Slater replaces Kevin Bacon as the man made unseen by shady government research, who murders without remorse while tracking down the scientist who can save his life. The character is invisible from the first scene this time, so Slater only gets about five or 10 minutes of screen time, but it’s no great loss. At one point, he pursues a potential victim while yelling, “I’m gonna get you!” He’s about as scary as the tickle monster.
