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.
AUDIO COMMENTARY: D.J. Caruso, Shia Labeouf, Sarah Roemer
One of my all time favorite movies and finally I have now seen it with audio commentary! This is one of the better commentaries I've listened to because everyone is lively, and they reveal some cool things about filming.
This is one of the quirkier commentaries I've listened to as well. Apparently they are all eating a whole chicken throughout the thing which is pretty cool. Then you have Caruso constantly making jokes about how hot Roemer is. He always says "This is where I fought with Dreamworks to include a Sarah walking by in a bikini." One scene where Roemer's character Ashley is swimming, they are talking about the bottom of…
The Beef didn't annoy me as much as his usual self would do, and the what's-her-face-girl was hawt!
The film suffers from the occasional slowness and boredom factors. But overall an entertaining watch.

you know its good when youre getting panic attacks the whole way through
I liked this movie.
Oh wow, what was that? A D.J. Caruso movie, that didn't suck and even was very entertaining? Sure, it doesn't add anything new to the subgenre of REAR WINDOW rip-offs, but it played its familiar notes very well.
Disturbia is a solid Rear Window inspired thriller. It's got laughs, it's got suspense, it's got thrills; for a movie aimed primarily at the teenage audience, it's a whole lot better than you'd expect.
Shia LaBeouf is very good as the charming, goofy, funny... douchebag (for the most part); just like real life, I guess. David Morse also turns in a great, menacing performance as the possible murdering neighbor. Aaron Yoo plays the comic relief to a t, and Sarah Roemer nails the love interest role. Really strong cast all the way through.
I cannot approve of the egregious misuse of Twinkies, though.
This might have been better if it were based on the Rihanna song. Seriously though it's not that bad even if it has Shia LaBeouf in it and Sarah Roemer is a revelation.
all around a good thriller in my book. much fun to watch, keeps you interested until the end.
Although its major flaw is romanticizing casual voyeurism, Disturbia still holds suspense, despite a few thriller cliches, and some originality. Though Shia LaBeouf did a great job, his performance emphasizing young potential back in his heyday (that he still has? Would many agree on that?), David Morse led a rather overshadowed but excellent performance, terse and very chilling.
Solid, fun, jump-scare thriller for a group of friends to shout at a movie night.
