A group of young scientists, funded by the Pentagon, are working underground in secret to invent an invisibility serum. After many tests on Gorillas they make a breakthrough and Sebastian, the mad scientist, wants to move onto the next level and become the first human to test out the serum. Things start out fun but soon become twisted and violent. What would you do if you didn't have to see yourself anymore.

The effects in this film were outstanding and the techniques used to show Sebastian as invisible were great. He would show up in smoke, water and fire. Paul Verhoeven as a director knows his stuff and this film just goes to show what he is capable of.

This was a scary, thrilling, violent movie and I loved every minute of it. I was left wondering what I might like to do if I myself became invisible or worse what if there was an invisible man in my room? Extras on this DVD are very informative on how the film was made. By watching the extras you realise just how much work was done by everyone and how they actually made Sebastian appear invisible. I feel they would be watched more than once, as there is so much information to take in at the one time.

This DVD is worth every penny and will have you hooked from the beginning right through to the end. With fantastic extras as well, you'll wonder why you didn't buy it sooner.
