‘The man Without a shadow’
Hollow Man. United States, 2000 (112 minutes). Director: Paul Verhoeven. Cast: Kevin Bacon, Elisabeth Shue, Josh Brolin.
An attempt by Paul Verhoeven to revive his filmography after the horror that Showgirls caused and the dust that raised a film in the background as insignificant as Starship troopers. The Dutch filmmaker was playing it safe in this case, when tackling the classic story of the invisible man. The amazing special effects take over the function very soon, and this new version of the story carries all the burdens of a blockbuster in which everything must be spectacular, pompous and gigantic, whether or not it comes to mind. Even so, the presence of a good actor like Kevin Bacon makes the film win integers, and Verhoeven brings a somewhat darker view of the scientist imprisoned by his own discovery.
