    Synopsis


    Memoirs of an Invisible Man
    Chevy Chase stars, though not always visibly, as Nick Halloway, a low-level businessman with an acerbic approach to life and work, whose humdrum existence utterly bores him. Nick gets an unexpected jolt of excitement when, nursing a hangover, he's the only one not to evacuate an office building that becomes a disaster area after a mishap involving nuclear testing equipment. An unexpected by-product of the accident is that it turns the molecules of the building, as well as Nick and the clothes he's wearing, transparent. When a team of shady government agents, led by David Jenkins (Sam Neill), notices that a human has been turned invisible, they try to take him into custody, planning to use him as the most dangerous secret intelligence agent the world has ever known. Distrusting their motives, the frantic and confused Nick escapes, and quickly begins learning new information about his unusual condition, such pragmatic details as trying to sleep when he can see through his eyelids and any unprocessed food he eats will give him away. Soon, however, he discovers that the scientist in charge of the experiments (Jim Norton) has no idea how to return him to normal, and begins plotting how best to live a semblance of a normal life while steering clear of his pursuers. Nick involves a beautiful woman he met the night before the accident (Daryl Hannah) in his dilemma, and soon she too becomes a target. Memoirs of an Invisible Man was adapted from a book by H.F. Saint. ~ Derek Armstrong, Rovi

      Worth a Sight.

      John Carpenter directs this Chevy Chase sci-fi action-comedy about a shifty stock-broker who turns invisible in an accident which has corrupt CIA agents set to exploit him or experiment on him. Bridging apart Chevy Chases' efforts to divert comedy for this mixed bag, the special effects are superb, but the plot and surprises are slim. Daryl Hannah and Sam Neill lead well in this playful comedy thriller.

      Movie arrived timely and in "new" condition. Plastic overlay was clear & crisp. Case opened & closed as it should. Movie played with no skips. Audio was soft so the volume has to be turned up loud to hear clearly. Movie is a must have for Chevy Chase fans.

      While not John Carpenter's best film, MEMOIRS is still very interesting. I especially like the musical score--it emphasizes the action on screen very well.

      I love this movie, its Chevy Chase in a somewhat serious role. It has comedic moments but a serious tone and its directed by John Carpenter.

      This is not the greatest film ever made, but it's fun, funny and fast paced. The dvd transfer is decent, so it's a nice little buy.
