Movie Info

Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan star in Disturbia director D.J. Caruso's race-against-time thriller concerning two strangers thrust together by a mysterious telephone call, and their frantic efforts to discover why they have inexplicably become the nation's most wanted fugitives. Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Monaghan) were complete strangers at the beginning of the day, but that changed the instant a strange woman called to threaten both their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Suddenly forced into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, Jerry and Rachel must now take orders from a woman who's using everyday technology to track and control their every move. As the situation intensifies and the hapless duo are deemed the country's most wanted fugitives, they must work together in order to discover who it was that turned their lives upside down, and what they can do to thwart the criminal mastermind's cunning yet diabolical plan. Billy Bob Thornton, Rosario Dawson, Michael Chiklis, and Anthony Mackie co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Very entertaining and a good story even though it seems like allot of effort for something that could of been done easier but I suppose it wouldn't of been as entertaining, Good action intense chase scenes, The special effects looked good, The acting was on the mark, Ignore the hate watch it for yourself.

    I don't think this movie deserved the rating Rotten Tomatoes gave, I though it was pretty dam good. First the performances were great, especially Shia LaBeouf, he was awesome. I really like the idea of who is the mysterious caller, even though if its predictable who the caller is. The action scenes are what stand out, their really good action scenes. The ending with the caller is pretty predictable, but the real ending is very heroic, so its a really fun action-thriller, I recommend it.

    This is a fun, lightning-paced techno thriller that douses the audiences in high-speed chases, gunfights, explosions and other hijinks, and doesn't give them a moment to think - which is all the better, because once the cinema lights go on, everyone will probably go "hey, wait a minute...". And after that thought, it seems evident that the bells and whistles and paranoia fuel serve only to disguise the fact that if given a closer look (like, say, an eagle would give), it quickly falls apart under its own weight. Not to mention Shia LaBeouf's incapability to carry to the film, and his non-existent chemistry with co-star Monaghan.
