When it comes to recalling the best of Hitchcock's important film lessons, here is a decent movie that at least remembers the buildup is just as important as the jolt.

Unfortunately, what starts out as a rounded and intelligent thriller soon turns up the silly for an OTT finale that betrays the tense and well-plotted build-up.

...an unabashedly high-concept premise that's primarily employed to surprisingly positive effect...

In addition to borrowing the idea behind Rear Window, Disturbia pays homage to Hitchcock in its sense of pacing, as well, in its use of the Hitchcock's signature slow build.

Like its attractive leads, director DJ Caruso's smart teen thriller may be self-conscious, but it is undeniably appealing,

As a thriller, this is mechanical and predictable - barely one-step away from cookie-cutter formulaic - and yet the film actually works up a decent amount of genuine feeling, thanks to the cast of characters.

Disturbia takes it's time setting up the thrills and Shia LaBeouf actually acts like a high schooler.

Disturbia's limits are those of its hero - an amiable, faintly clueless young man with a brief attention span.

This occasionally amusing thriller will probably not be Shia's best-remembered moment, but it is worth a peep.

Caruso's no Hitchcock, and Disturbia is not as original, suspense-filled or well-acted as the James Stewart-Grace Kelly masterpiece, but for its predominantly male, teenage audience it delivers enough shocks to be entertaining.

The teen support cast are vacuous and director DJ Caruso strays a little too far into Grand Guignol territory for the over-extended climax, but Disturbia's otherwise bang on the money: $80m at the US box-office was no fluke.

Not quite Rear Window, but can certainly hold its own with The 'Burbs.

DJ Caruso's neat little thriller won't win any awards for originality (Hitch will be spinning six feet under) but it does work surprisingly well bearing in mind you can almost second guess every plot twist.

Entertaining Hitchcock-lite for a generation that would rather dial P for pizza than M for murder.

Take an Alfred Hitchcock classic, remix it for generation youtube and you've got Disturbia, a smart and involving thriller about the perils of voyeurism.
