    Entertaining, albeit non-extraordinary B movie thriller with an effective villainous performance from Batman himself. All in all despite some unanswered plot threads, cliches, and the script getting a little bloated in the third act, it's a serviceably entertaining movie.

    A yuppie thriller, problematic from the start, because who likes yuppies? Nobody. It's completely absurd and implausible, but I must admit it's fun to watch. Michael Keaton is great, as usual, even though his character is completely undeveloped. He's just a bad guy from the git go. The other problem with this film is that it doesn't know if it wants to be a dark comedy or a thriller. Since it's impossible to take it seriously, the thriller aspect suffers. But in spite of the absurdity, it will keep you watching.

    Keaton is key to this film and he is incredible. Sadly the film falls into all the pitfalls of films of this era and lacks central characters. The thriller troupes are all here and it's all these beat for beat moments that you'll love or hate. My biggest hate is how the police are experts at everything or ignorant to the facts. The couple could've have lied and said he manipulated the police into coming. He did come to their apartment. Frustrating story beats are just pure Hollywood story moments. The film is actually quite interesting and I only wish they managed to maintain the key characters relationship. Modine was the incorrect choice here, he seems to struggle with the role. This could be the filmmakers error, but it's clear he doesn't match the material. Passable thriller, sadly had so much more potential. Reboot worthy. 31/10/2019

    Pacific Heights is an underrated movie and has Michael Keaton playing a sinister role as the tenant from hell. Melanie Griffith and Mathew Modine play a yuppie San Francisco couple who rent out their sublet to others. Unfortunately Michael Keaton- a rich but shady customer enters the fray and immediately convinces them to let him stay. It's a psychological thriller with a nice setting. I suggest you go in with an open mind.

    A few issues with Modine's acting and some character based flaws, along with the unrealistic thievery of the villain's property by the female protagonist (because how else should, or could, this film end?!) hold this film back from a properly good rating. Michael Keaton, though, was the best, as usual.
