Consensus: It boasts an intriguing cast and the special effects were groundbreaking, but they can't compensate for Memoirs of an Invisible Man's sadly pedestrian script.

Boasts excellent visual effects but otherwise relates a mediocre story.

Sergio Benítez

With nothing to hold on to, neither in direction, nor in script, nor in actors, the only positive things are the more than correct score of Shirley Walker and the spectacular visual effects. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director John Carpenter did the best he could with this invisible man story, but unfortunately, Chevy Chase was in charge.

Nicholas Bell

This is a misguided romantic comedy entry into the Invisible Man canon so vibrantly born from the mind of H.G. Wells.

Ed Travis

the visual effects remain one of the great elements of this mixed bag of a film, allowing for moments of comedy, awe, wonder, and just plain cool.

Not an altogether memorable film for Chevy Chase.

Another Chevy Chase's film, that could be much better. Despite the special effects, and chilling story, Memoirs is not so funny. But is memorable, for me,… More

This is Funny. Chevy Chase as an Invisible Man. Women wanted him for his wit. The C.I.A. wanted him for his body. All Nick wanted was his molecules back.

a john carpenter film, so much is expected, but totally undermined by the lead, doing a bad bogie ...
Dean McKenna
Terrific special effects and inventive comedy combine to make this adaptation of the book by H.F. Saint much more than just another Chevy Chase vehicle.
