Hitchcock would turn in his grave.
September 14, 2007
Despite the interesting set-up, the action degenerates into obvious implausibility and silliness - fatal for a suspense thriller - and boredom sets in.
September 14, 2007
Not quite Rear Window, but can certainly hold its own with The 'Burbs.
September 11, 2007
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.
June 23, 2007
You'll jump as if you've had electrodes attached to your sensitive parts; but when your nerve endings stop tingling, your brain won't remember a thing.
April 16, 2007
This is a cool little thriller with some big scares and fine performances.
April 14, 2007
It eventually evolves into a credible thriller, one pointedly rather than coincidentally embedded in the trivia of its time.
April 13, 2007
Offsetting the chilly voyeurism is a viable teen romance and an appealing sense of humor. Though there are occasional lapses in logic, Disturbia is consistently suspenseful and entertainingly disturbing.
April 13, 2007
While Disturbia does nothing to advance or honour Hitchcock, the movie succeeds on its modest terms.
April 13, 2007
For the most part a taut, careful thriller that emphasizes suspense over blood and gore.
April 13, 2007
Caruso, a very visual director, serves up some surprises and scares, and he's paced his movie briskly. You're out of this disturbing suburbia before you know it, shaken and even stirred.
April 13, 2007
A surprisingly competent film, Disturbia lives up to its title. It's rare to find a decent film turn up in the dead of April, traditionally Hollywood's dump month for shelved oddities.
April 13, 2007
Director D.J. Caruso relies entirely too much on clichéd shock cuts and keeps pulling back every time the flick seems to be settling into anything close to a creepy mood.
April 13, 2007
What Disturbia lacks in complexity, it makes up for in witty jokes, sneaky jolts and a timeless lesson: If you've got windows, someone's always watching.
April 13, 2007
Despite the foolishness, and despite the patent knockoffs of Rear Window and American Beauty, Disturbia is a likable little thriller.
April 13, 2007
A one-dimensional thriller, albeit one more stylish than the ones churned out for the older teen-early 20s demographic.
April 13, 2007
Reasonably smart and sometimes funny -- right up until the end, when it sells out its intelligence in favor of a standard-issue dose of overwrought violence.
April 13, 2007
Disturbia will have young people on the edge of their seat, cringing and thinking at the same time.
