There's something bracing about the utter amorality of Trespass.

TV Guide

While Trespass might have been more compelling, it still displays far more style and intelligence than the average contemporary action thriller.

In a season dominated by bloated blockbuster wannabes, it's easy to respond to the lean-and-mean B-movie pleasures of Trespass.

Director Walter Hill's handling of the action is fluid and kinetic, making the film a pleasure to watch for the expertness of its craft.

Hill stages some typically electric action scenes.

Despite plenty of plot holes, cartoonish characterization and the general impression that no one involved is taking things too seriously, Hill manages to deliver a minor gem within the tense and claustrophobic confines of the slum walls.

Okay action movie full of twists and double crosses.

Claustrophobic, taut and efficient, like a streamlined car designed to simply get you there, Trespass wastes no time in setting up its premise -- and then just barrels along with an in-your-face attitude and plenty of tightly wound tension.

For the undemanding, it may seem a fair stand-off; but compared to Hill's best work, it's merely a jerk-off.

Everything in the screenplay seems arbitrary, including the firefighting jobs assigned to the two would-be treasure-seekers. They could as easily be magazine salesmen or amateur songwriters.

A sub-par film that showed the potential for the Brothers Ice to be much better actors than they are musical performers. They make the film almost worth watching. Yes, I said almost.

Does Trespass have any lasting significance? No. Does it do anything particularly well? No, only skillfully.
