Hollow Man 2

The original Hollow Man was trashy entertainment. I enjoyed it, but at the same time I wished it was something more than just a flick about a serial killer who was invisible. I had hoped that this DTV sequel was going to be something a little different, but unfortunately not. Christian Slater plays a soldier who is made invisible by the same serum that made Kevin Bacon go nuts, and he goes on a rampage through Calgary (I think it was supposed to be Philadelphia) killing anyone who knows anything about his current state. So Peter Facinelli (dude can't act for shit) is a cop who is brought in to track him down. The big twist is that he becomes invisible too so he and Slater can have a CGI filled fist fight for the finale. It's boring, incredibly stupid (does making yourself invisible allow you to see others who are invisible? Nope? Then what was the point of that twist at the end?) and it's incredibly cheap looking. Avoid it like the plague.
