The plot is as tediously redundant as director Jonathan Kaplan's approach is carefully workmanlike.

A taut thriller much of the way, Unlawful Entry suffers from some serious lapses in logic.

Below average thriller. The power of a cop is scary, but most of the plot points are standard thriller moments, right down to the scary cat.

The movie is a thriller, with all the usual trappings of a thriller, but the director, Jonathan Kaplan, is able to place the story in a plausible world.

Kurt Russell gives new meaning to the term action hero. A real white-knuckler.

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.

Unlawful Entry does a tremendous job provoking the viewer with crude elements of bullying.

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.

A solid, suspenseful "B" film
| Original Score: 3/5

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.
| Original Score: 7/10
