Unlawful Entry may not depict a particularly novel or believable situation, but tense direction and a roundly committed cast make it easy to get caught up in the moment.

Although it exists primarily to send an audience into a bloodthirsty frenzy and has major credibility problems in the bargain, Unlawful Entry is still a very effective victimization thriller.
Neither Lewis Colick's script nor Jonathan Kaplan's direction is quite as streamlined as it could be, but you certainly get a run for your money.
Solid performances lend weight to the flakier elements, with Liotta turning crazed excess into something wild.
More gripping than it is convincing.
The plot is as tediously redundant as director Jonathan Kaplan's approach is carefully workmanlike.
Entry is acted more intelligently than is usual in this type of cookie-cutter shocker.
Unlawful Entry does a tremendous job provoking the viewer with crude elements of bullying.
A wonderfully nasty turn from Liotta, along with a novel treatment of familiar plotlines, elevates Kaplan's effort into the 'must see' category.
Gordon lacks Scorsese's talent for unsettling his audience, but he can turn up the tension until you squirm in your seat or want to shout at the screen.
A paint-by-numbers suspense thriller redeemed by stylish, economic direction and a marvelous performance by Ray Liotta as a psycho L.A. cop.
It's an amazingly sharp, nasty little thriller that takes a silly situation and squeezes it to the core, vicious as a heart attack.
This well-done suspense-thriller is a variation of the Fatal Attraction theme with Ray Liotta as the cop from hell.
Unlawful Entry is a psychological thriller with some chilling and frightening twists. After responding to a break-in at a suburban couple's home, an LAPD officer becomes obsessed with the wife and tries to make her his. The film stars Kurt Russell, Ray Liotta, and Madeleine Stowe; who all deliver good performances. And, the story is fairly well written, and does a good job at building suspense and terror. But there are parts of the film that are undeveloped, and the film style is a bit dated. Though Unlawful Entry is pretty much a by-the-numbers thriller, it's still compelling and exciting.
Ray Liotta does his "I'm intense and creepy" schtick as a cop who stalks a bland middle class couple in an uninteresting and unconvincing formulaic Hollywood thriller. "Move along folks, there's nothing to see here..."
Ray Liotta played a pretty creepy guy in this, enjoyed it, was really good
Pretty tense and exciting thriller of a 'friendly' cop becomes hell.
