Disturbia is an excellent film. It is about a teen who is living under house arrest becomes convinced his neighbor is a serial killer. Shia LaBeouf and Carrie-Anne Moss give fantastic performances. The screenplay is well written. D.J. Caruso did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and mystery. Disturbia is a must see.
Alfred Hitchcock is probably thankful that his name doesn't appear on the poster for this remake of his Hall-of-Fame-worthy "Rear Window". While this is a reasonably enjoyable teen/drama/thriller, it's a better film if one considers it on its own merits instead of comparing it to the original. Shia--who owes his entire career to Mr. Spielberg--launches into stardom with this role and does a fine job of being a kind of teenage Everyman (although one under house arrest) but there just isn't quite enough intrigue in the story to call it 'great'. 11/19/9
Disturbia is a very entertaining and edge of your seat thriller that will resonate heavily with teens. It's full of great pop culture references, has amazing music, a solid cast and a very well written script. It ends up being a unique experience overall, one you'll want to watch over and over.
A house arrested teen catches the (not so friendly) neighbourhood killer. Not much to speak of in any department - this a true sum greater than parts movie - the end result is better than anything all that went into making it, Ok to Watch.
A modern take on Hitchcock's classic Rear Window, with a bit of humor and teen romance thrown in. Shia LaBeouf reminds us how endearing he could be in his pre-crazy years, and Sarah Roemer (who I frankly never heard of before this) gives a charismatic performance as well.
With the slow build up of tension, solid acting and charismatically fun performances, this is the perfect Alfred Hitchcock movie for teenagers. The ending somewhat betrays the movie, but everything in this movie is so much fun that it's hard to give it anything less than a 5 star.
