The quieter the street, the darker the secrets....
Kale is a 17-year-old placed under house arrest after punching his teacher. He is confined to his house, and decides to use his free time spying on his neighbors. Things start to get weird when guests enter the Turner's house and don't come back out. Kale and his friends, Ronnie and Ashley, start to grow more and more interested in what is actually happening within the house of Robert Turner.
Disturbia is like somebody's younger brother who nobody likes because he's not as cool as the older brother but still manages to have at least one friend who would play with him from time to time.
Rear Window is that older brother.
I'll be your friend Disturbia!
"Disturbia" es una de las peliculas de la cual tengo muchas cosas buenas que decir, cuando la vi por primera vez la cual fue por casualidad la pelicula estuvo en lo mas alto de mis favoritas por un muy largo tiempo.
No se puede negar los errores en su direccion de escenografia y fotografia, pero sinceramente es una pelicula que me atrapo que a pesar de no ser la mejor ni mucho menos perfecta tiene algo que fue lo que me atrapo, con una muy buena actuacion de Shia LaBeouf.
Maneja el suspenso y la intriga no a la perfeccion pero si de una manera que te mantiene entretenido y concentrado en todo lo que esta sucediendo, el director tambien cumple con el hacer que uno como espectador le agarre cariño a los personajes.
Se que ya lo dije pero la pelicula a pesar de no ser excelente es de mi total agrado.
This is a pretty effective teenage thriller, the script is well written, it moves along at a good pace, there's some good suspense filled scenes and the performances are all to a good standard.
Shia LeBeouf shows some early promise as Kale, the surly but likeable teenager who has not long lost his father in a road accident he is partly responsible for, now confined to house arrest after punching his teacher Kale spends his days spying on his neighbours from his bedroom, one of whom may be a serial killer. David Morse is also good in the role of said neighbour, coming across as friendly on the surface but with enough menace underneath to slightly creep you out.
Overall, although there aren't too many surprise's here this Rear Window homage keeps you on the edge of your seat and is worth a look.
If Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window was a living thing, then its shit would be called Disturbia.
A thoroughly entertaining rip-off of Rear Window.
Mucho más auténtica que algunas de las nuevas pelis guays de rollo retro con la que dieron tanto la brasa. Es mejor que Attack the Block o que Cop Car, pero venir apadrinada por Spielberg también jugó en su contra. Y eso que también es mejor que Super 8, pero el estigma LaBeouf también tuvo su momento y automáticamente todo lo que protagonizaba el chaval olía mal. Y eso que es un gran actor que aquí demuestra de sobra su talento.
También se llenaron muchas bocas hablando de ventanas indiscretas y copias ilegales, pero aquí hay tanto del clásico de Hitch como de la ópera prima de Tom Holland o el retrato suburbial que Joe Dante regaló a Tom Hanks.
Vamos, que seguís sin tener ni puta idea. Allá vosotros.
Yeah so I really liked this movie. I remember being a freshman in high school and feeling like the only person who hadn't seen this movie. "You've never seen Disturbia?" being a common question I had to answer no to. Some of those feelings have lasted because I felt really nostalgic watching this. Hard to believe this was released nine years ago but not as hard to believe after watching it. It clearly has a style that belongs to a decade ago. It's far from perfect but it's even further from bad. The cheesy parts work because the other parts work so well. Great Shia too.
i would die for you shia labeouf

The whole time I was watching this movie, I kept hearing Ned Flanders yell "I'm a mur-diddly-urdler" the whole time. (I haven't seen Rear Window, so that Simpsons episode is pretty much all I have to go by lol. #noshame)
This was a decent movie, I was enjoying it and considering rating it 7/10 until the climax when the movie took a turn into teen slasher territory and disappointed the heck out of me. Sorry for minor spoilers of an almost ten-year-old movie, but I wanted to be surprised by the big reveal. (Although maybe if the killer was someone unsuspecting, that would be expected. But still!) I thought the movie was very plausible and realistic up until the third…
shia so fine
From the writers of Red Eye (eyy!) and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (err?).
The best thing about this film is ironically also the worst thing about it: that poster. I remember there being a huge cardboard cutout version of it at what was then my go-to multiplex, Showcase Wood Green (now Vue Wood Green), around the time it came out back when I was 10. Without so much as seeing a single clip, you could just tell what sort of film it was going to be just from that simple yet effective poster design. Except it isn't that at all. Or at least not as much as 10 year old me thought it would be.
What that poster…
The tone wasn't very consistent which was a little annoying and there were a few more problems but I had a nice time with this thriller.
many people compare this picture with 'rear window', but unfortunately it never comes to that level of cinema.
Nice attempt ,though.
Rear Window is not shook
