Not Exactly Monday Movie Review

Lots of movies out there and I'm way behind. Managed to fit in just one on Sunday afternoon, after the big return from the RT Convention. The movie was THE INVISIBLE.

So here's the scoop - high school student Nick Powell was attacked by fellow students, for really stupid reasons, and left for dead. Except that he's not quite dead. He's sort of in limbo, and if he can get someone to find his body before he dies then he can be saved. Only problem is, the only person that can hear him is the main character responsible for his almost death.

This movie is dumb on so many levels I can't even begin to cover them all. First off, it tries for the whole "I'm a teenager and no one understands me and my parents are bad and that's the reason I do all this" but they were angsty for nothing. Just typical teenager bullshit attitude. These kids didn't have it rough and there was damn sure no reason for ole girl to run around trying to kill people.

The plot (what little there was) was so predictable my cat could have told you the ending - which was also dumb. The main actor (one I haven't seen before) is supposed to be this tortured writer type and I sooooooooo couldn't take him seriously. Plus, he was a total pansy and wrote simply horrid poetry, so I'm thinking "so the world just lost another aspiring poet - who cares?"

And that sort of sums up my entire feelings on the movie:

My Final Rating: Who cares?

Not that great, huh? The husband will probably rent it when it when it hits DVD. :) :)
