Disturbia *** – Movie Review

If you haven’t see Disturbia, you’re in for a treat. It’s a take from Hitchcock’s 1954 thriller Rear Window. I’ve seen both films and both are excellent but Disturbia is obviously more up-to-date than it’s James Stewart counterpart. David Morse is superb as a bad guy and the sequence of scenes in the first 5 minutes will have you hooked from the start. It plays on the voyeur in all of us as Kale watches the day-to-day goings on of his neighbors after being sentenced to house arrest.

Disturbia is sexy and hip yet thrilling and chilling. If you’re in the mood for a very good thriller that doesn’t insult your intelligence from scene to scene, this is the film to rent.

Disturbia – In this modern retelling of Hitchcock’s thriller Rear Window, Kale (Shia LaBeouf), a troubled teen sentenced to house arrest, begins watching his neighbors out of boredom — only to discover evidence that a serial killer lives a stone’s throw from his home. As his suspicions of his neighbor (David Morse) grow, Kale enlists the aid of friends Ashley (Sarah Roemer) and Ronnie (Aaron Yoo) in his increasingly dangerous snooping.

Sameritech’s 4 star guide:

**** Loved it

** Average, but watchable
* Didn’t like it, wasted my time, would rather have watched a George Bush speech
