Hollow Man is a 2000 American-German science fiction horror film directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Kevin Bacon, Elisabeth Shue and Josh Brolin. Bacon portrays the title character, a scientist who renders himself invisible, only to go on a killing spree after going violently insane, a story inspired by H. G. Wells' novel The Invisible Man. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Visual Effects in 2001, but lost to Gladiator (2000 film).

Dialogue[edit]

Dr. Kramer: I'm going to call out the scientific council.
Matt: Is there anything we can do in the meantime?
Dr. Kramer: How about clearing out your offices?
Linda: For what is worth, we're both very sorry.
Dr. Kramer: It's a little a late for apologies.
Mrs. Kramer: What's the problem?
Dr. Kramer: Just a screw-up at work!
Mrs. Kramer: How bad?
Dr. Kramer: Bad enough to wake up a few Generals.

About[edit]

  • I decided after Hollow Man, this is a movie, the first movie that I made that I thought I should not have made. It made money and this and that, but it really is not me anymore. I think many other people could have done that. I don't think many people could have made RoboCop that way, or either Starship Troopers. But Hollow Man, I thought there might have been 20 directors in Hollywood who could have done that. I felt depressed with myself after 2002
