The Intruder

Critics Consensus

The Intruder might appeal to fans of shout-at-the-screen cinema, but this thriller's ludicrous plot robs it of suspense -- and undermines Dennis Quaid's suitably over-the-top performance.

  • The Intruder succeeds in making this scenario less blatantly paranoid and misanthropic than it often appears... It also helps that Quaid, showing remarkable dedication to the role, jumps effortlessly between magnanimous old fool and evil.

  • Iit's high time Quaid truly embraced the role of a real horror-movie psycho, and the key pleasure of... The Intruder lies in watching the actor bounce among extremes of charm, anxiety, chumminess, and madness.

  • You know thrillers. Five-minute plots have a way of dragging familiar ideas into 2-hour narratives. This one has been done to death.

  • The real secret weapon of "The Intruder" is the intruder himself, played by Dennis Quaid in a completely unhinged performance of true lunacy.

  • Yes, "The Intruder" is formulaic and you've seen versions of it before. But the game cast and opportunities for interactivity - this is a movie that invites you to shout at the screen - make it a fun if predictable ride.

  • Were this not a depiction of a stalker but of an overly present neighbour, the camera's incessant reveals of Charlie ominously appearing in places he shouldn't would be almost comical in how belaboured they are.

    What I have learned from reading reviews of The Intruder is people seem to be mad that it wasn't racist enough... Oh the movie itself? Yeah it was okay.
