The yawning chasm between the film's aspirations to social significance and its cheese-o-licious straight-to-video construction make it a chucklesome guilty pleasure.
December 5, 2008
It's a terrifically unstable performance that is admirably matched by the exasperated victims. The ending is too allegorical for its own health, but this is intelligent cinema.

From certain angles, Lakeview Terrace may look neurotic or even reactionary, but I found it bracingly tactless, particularly because interracial couples are still something of a taboo in modern Hollywood.

Happily, it's not only a return to form for the one-time Mormon and agent provocateur, it also offers Samuel L Jackson his first decent part in years.

The movie is directed by Neil LaBute, whose history suggests he's comfortable making his audience just uncomfortable enough to make a lasting impression.

I found it scary at times and I was tense and I was on the edge of my seat, , but ultimately it did spiral out of control and get a little ridiculous.

The actors make it watchable, but with these incendiary themes, 'watchable' isn't exactly a wildfire.

Lakeview Terrace is a serviceable enough popcorn exercise in a few floundering Angelenos who can't just get along.

The movie's only mark of restraint is the absence of an earthquake.

Jackson hasn't had a role this good or this complex in many a moon, even if the rote ending betrays the complexity of the set-up.
September 19, 2008
A racial thriller that may be the feel-bad movie of the summer.
September 19, 2008
In its overall shape and message, Lakeview Terrace is a conventional suspense thriller, but the details kick it up a notch.
September 19, 2008
Lakeview Terrace [is] an unsettling address for everyone -- black, white or 'blue'.
September 19, 2008
Lakeview Terrace holds your interest, though the bad faith on all sides makes it something of an endurance test.
September 19, 2008
Terrace pretends to be about the persecution of a mixed-race couple when really it's about how anyone might react living next door to the shark from Jaws.
September 19, 2008
The movie is purportedly a thriller, a la Unlawful Entry or Pacific Heights, but the whole thing is so listless and mechanical, watching it is a curiously dispiriting experience.
