After helming “Blade Trinity”, David S. Goyer really had nowhere to go but up.“The Invisible” isn’t much to look at -- Ha! -- but he gets some solid contributions from the cast. The plot is simple enough: disembodied teen must find help for his injured body before he becomes dead-dead. Along the way, he learns some stuff about the people around him -- sounds a bit like that unaired FOX pilot, “Still Life”. Margarita Levieva stands out with a sort of grungy, (almost)Jessica Albish vibe with her portrayal of Annie -- the misunderstood tough girl (I guess you could say that she was invisible in her own way). The film changes genres in almost every act, starting out as a teen drama, switching to supernatural thriller and closing as a paranormal romance. There’s an audience for a good teen “Ghost” flick, but this movie doesn’t fit the bill. Watchable but not memorable. I believe Goyer does a commentary on the DVD though. Will have to check it out...
