The Intruder Reviews

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.

There isn't a lot going on here.

There's exactly one good jump-scare, which probably would have caused me to drop my popcorn if I hadn't finished it already; otherwise it's fairly uninspired.

Nearly every scene is practically an invitation for the audience to talk back to the screen and ask these people if they've lost their minds.
