Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"My screening presented the final reel upside down and backward; no difference whatsoever."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"The drama never comes together in a smart, meaningful way; indeed, most revelations border on the banal."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Yes, it's a great premise, but the execution was very weak."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"...has been designed to appeal solely to the coveted "tween" demographic..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There are some interesting ideas afoot, but there's also a struggle as to which to direction it wants to head."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Director David S. Goyer doesn't get half the skin-crawling mileage out of the ghost factor that he could. As a result, The Invisible really isn't worth seeing."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"If anything, the movie is too introspective, to the point that it doesn't build enough conflict or tension."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Director David S. Goyer turned the familiar sights of our fair city into a seething battleground for vampires in 2004's Blade: Trinity, but his latest Vancouver-shot supernatural flick doesn't have nearly as much bite."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Supernatural teen thriller is preposterous, awful."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"...a quietly sad and lonely film about quietly sad and lonely people."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"They should have called this Perturbia."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The only horror here is the script."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"idea dramatos poy ginetai idea thriler me eyeliktes symbaseis, ginetai syntoma Arlekin efibikoy aghoys poy den thes na diabaseis"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Never satisfying no matter what genre it attempts."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"A mash-up of Ghost and The O.C. with a point-of-view directed with uncompromising resolve at the protagonist's navel."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
