Critic Reviews for The Neighbor
A meaty stew of likeable leads, hard-kicking suspense and air-punching action
The Neighbour offers a collection of tense, increasingly improbable thrills, accompanied by uncomfortable moral alignments in a world where everyone is marginalised and nobody can afford to obey the law.
The Neighbour is a serviceable B-movie thriller that's in the bizarre position of having nothing whatsoever to offer in terms of originality, performance, visual pleasure or storytelling verve.
Overall, The Neighbour treads familiar ground well, so can be forgiven the occasional slip - after all, one never knows what might be underfoot.
It's decently acted and decently made. At the same time, though, there's nothing particularly exceptional going on here.
Audience Reviews for The Neighbor
It's been a little while since I've seen The Collector and The Collection but they had a very distinct style, much like this film. Stewart reteams with the same team as those films for a standard type of thriller that unfortunately feels too pedestrian for the filmmakers. The style is very similar to the collector film series and much in the style of the saw films, but that is the weakness here. The stakes aren't high enough and the short running time leaves characters without a lot to play with. I had only watched Don't Breathe recently and that film raised the stakes of the neighbor hiding something sinister and this film has nothing new to add. The film isn't a failure but it needed to raise stakes and put a twist on a worn genre. The final confrontation is good and the film needed to have more time in this style of tension to succeed. 10-06-2017.
