Although it exists primarily to send an audience into a bloodthirsty frenzy and has major credibility problems in the bargain, Unlawful Entry is still a very effective victimization thriller.

Neither Lewis Colick's script nor Jonathan Kaplan's direction is quite as streamlined as it could be, but you certainly get a run for your money.

Solid performances lend weight to the flakier elements, with Liotta turning crazed excess into something wild.

More gripping than it is convincing.

The movie is a thriller, with all the usual trappings of a thriller, but the director, Jonathan Kaplan, is able to place the story in a plausible world.

The plot is as tediously redundant as director Jonathan Kaplan's approach is carefully workmanlike.

Entry is acted more intelligently than is usual in this type of cookie-cutter shocker.
