Gary Scott Thompson Andrew W. Wells 's The Invisible Man. Douglas Wick Alan Marshall. What the military hopes to do with the formula is unclear, but you have to figure President Clinton's "don't ask, don't tell" policy is pretty much out the window. Films set in Washington, D.
Sebastian goes to the lab, where he creates nitroglycerin and puts it in a centrifuge with a timer which is meant to destroy the facility after he leaves; he also smashes the keyboard so nobody can stop the machine.
The guard working there is also very suspicious but before he can do anything, Sebastian gets into his car and drives off to his apartment to bring some things back to the lab. We wanted coherence between the special effects and the actors so people would accept the effects as part of the actor's scene rather than as a special effect. Otherwise, "Hollow Man" is hollow, man. The next day, Sebastian waits until all of the team is in the lab and then disables the phones and the elevator codes except for his own. Roger Ebert gave the film 2 stars out of 4, and complained that Verhoeven wasted potential by taking an invisible man and doing nothing more than having him go berserk. Somehow, the film makers turn the process into a slow dissolve, the skin fading away to expose the circulatory system and muscle mass, and that giving way to organs and skeleton, before he's completely gone. The film received negative reviews.
