Plot
The invisibility formula used to make people bad. Some alterations were made to it as the franchise evolved. In this sequel, a criminal inherits its powers and uses it as a mean to an end. The script benefits from his shenanigans. We're closer in tone to the original film. The classic illusion is pushed to its previous limits; we get extended scenes featuring invisible animals, namely.
The effects are just as convincing as before, if not more. This technique doesn't get old. The actors do a good job, especially when considering the cinematographic challenges at hand. Although rigid, the dialog, and sometimes monologue, takes its time to but sets the table for a nice supernatural thriller. The comedy often serves as filler and sadly waters down a potentially darker film.
It brings back aspects we enjoyed in the original, though it doesn't take enough freedom on paper and feels like déjà-vu. There are slow moments in the second act that only keep us away from more eye-candy. A subplot about a random love interest falls flat; underdeveloped and shoehorned in. It doesn't work because there really is no character to relate to.
