i wish this entire movie would become invisible.
Nothing more here than a waste of film and a waste of my time.
Bears no resemblance to the first movie.
No plot, no major stars....no kidding!
Skip this non-movie and watch the original again.

i enjoy the Invisible Man concept... and so , most of this adventure.
Kevin Bacon, in the first film
did a really, better Job of the Progression into Lunacy, which the injections produce.
Sometimes, you can look at this movie, and think of all the people
deserving Justice, that an Invisible Man might take care of.
Just for the heck-of-it , some Day, look for the
late 1950s British Series : "The Invisible Man"...made-for-TV.
It's an excursion into that era,
and a chance to see what Good things can Be done by such a figure.
P.S. ~~~"Yes" on Laura Regan.
Christian Slater is Better in "True Romance" , though.

"In 2000 Kevin Bacon became the man who signed up to become a Hollow Man after the scientists made a monkey go invisible. After Bacon was invisible he began rampaging around killing off people one by one, terroizing Josh Brolin and Elisabeth Shue and eventually getting blown up in an elevator shaft. Now 6 years later they make another one...Hollow Man 2 and now in the spot as the invisible Assassian Hollow Man is none other then Christian Slater (Heathers, Pump Up The Volume) who is only in a couple of scenes but provides voices overs. Peter Facinelli (Can't Hardly Wait, Tempted) plays Det. Turner who after his partner is killed in an atempt to capture Hollow Slater runs around with Doc Laura Regan (Wes Craven Presents THEY) who so happened to be a part of the experiment involvoing Slater going invisible. How Hollow does this movie go? Well it has its moments and Peter Facinelli is basically the only one who keeps it alive. Slater looks cool in blue makeup but man...come on, going from crappy movies like The Deal, Manhunters to this?! I so hope he gets better movies. Regan's acting is bland and I'm not liking the short hair on her. The curly long hair in the scene where Slater goes Hollow was nice but short....no. So, all in all it wasnt that fantastic and I hope they dont make a Hollow Man 3. Well, if they do the only actor I have in mind for the role is Corey Feldman....just kidding....or am I?"

"Waiting six years to do a sequel to the more engrossing original, this followup doesn't really seem necessary. Confusing plot developments, standard effects and mediocre acting combine for a rather tedious thriller. Christian Slater is going to become the next Stephen Baldwin with his laconic, devil may care and lifeless acting. Peter Facinelli and Laura Regan try a little harder, but they're swamped in the script's ineptitude. Maybe it'll be nice to say we haven't seen Christian Slater for a while!"
Not Too Bad

"The first Hollow Man was sort of an invisible man meets alien film with the title character going nuts in an underground installation. This one is more like the original Claude Raines movies. Two cops get drawn into a murder case and are immediately superceded by the military. But when one of them dies protecting someone related to the case, the lead detective, who tries so hard to be Tom Cruise, goes on a vengeance campaign to find out why his partner had to die.
There is an invisible man (unimaginatively named Griffin) who seems to be killing people. He needs a buffer that was designed by the woman being protected by the cop. A cat and mouse game follows with complications added by the military. Finally, desperate measures are called for and the film reaches its climax.
Christian Slater is the invisible man in this one but his part is quite small and his biggest scene is a flashback. The movie starts very quickly as a character is attacked at a formal function. Things continue to move quickly all the way to the end with only a few pauses to catch a breath. The only real problem I had was that there is no real reason to care about the characters. We know so little about them it is almost as if they are lab rats, just people to have things happen to. Still it is a pretty fun movie"
The first movie sequel better than it's predecessor in my op

"Okay you have Hollow man which I thought was a screw up to begin with. First off Kevin Bacon is a good actor, but this movie was the worst career choice. I mean common, excessive special effects to the point of being unrealistic that if you nit pick the scenes there are so many flaws. Second, the movie contains rape and animal cruelty in the most perverse ways. Lastly, the movie was a waste. NOW, Hollow Man 2 was the best make up/replacement/Hollow Man sequel in the Hollow Man series. Christian Slater is a great actor and this was a great choice for him. He IS the best invisible man. His character name Michael Griffin is even based on the original Invisible Man character in the original novel. The special effects are great because of the realism and the minimal of CGI and the use of practical effects. There's a great supporting cast and the characters are great. The movie may be rated R for strong violence, language, and some sexuality/nudity, but it's more like the good classic 80's and 90's horror movie type. Hollow Man (Christian Slater) is a top military soldier and a skilled killer/fighter who wanted to go invisible, so he got his wish and became a serial killer on a mission. That's awesome! Slater is more of the Jason Voorhees type of serial killer and kills people in awesome ways. That's the only thing that makes him psycho, but it's in an awesome way. Plus there's a good fight scene at the climax. Bottom line, I own it and like it A LOT. Great movie and recommend it."
