No one sets out to make a bad movie or give an uncommitted performance. But there is an element of magic that brings together all the technical and artistic endeavors associated with a film production. Alas, the magic wasn’t present on this location. The humor is lame, there’s no wonderment, little emotion and even less credibility. And it would be difficult to decide which character displays the least amount of enthusiasm: the lead actress, the stoic Indian ghost, or the background extras.
The element of fantasy of having a man awaken twenty years later is interesting. Having his grandson become invisible for no apparent reason, other than to further the espionage sequence when he sneaks into a crooked politician’s office, is merely ludicrous. As for the so-called spirit guides – it would have been a nice thought had the writer opted to give them personality, just any personality. They look and act like they’re the ones in a deep sleep. There is no objectionable content. Because of that, we can approve it. However, I’d be very surprised if it weren’t a snoozer for kid and kin.
