    Hollow Man


    (Paul Verhoeven ranking)
    (2000 ranking)

    Verhoeven’s take on The Invisible Man is both refreshing and unique, and whilst it boasts some strong scenes and exceptional visual effects, it is let down by its under par acting, script and style.

    (2022 ranking)

    A brutal unwavering spectacle that showcases Robert Eggers at the peak of his powers, The Northman may not be exactly what I expected but it is certainly one of the best of the year so far. 

    The story at its centre is a simplistic tale of revenge, and so it relies on its storytelling, visuals, setting and direction to stand apart. And it is within these four aspects where the film excels.
