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.
If Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window was a living thing, then its shit would be called Disturbia.
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.
Basically a modern day version of the Hitchcock classic Rear Window. So imagine my surprise when Disturbia turned out to be pretty decent. It's tense and intriguing though having seen Rear Window the ending was predictable.
The biggest problem is the opening, it is very slow with it basically being a teen rom-com for the first 40 minutes. After this however it opens up and becomes far more enjoyable. Shia LaBeouf is pretty good as well. Well worth a watch.
Bad. Don't watch.
Smartly penned, structured with confidence and meticulously paced, Disturbia is a fantastic suburban thriller.
Rear Window homage aside, this is a cool and calculated watch that features fantastic performances from Shia LeBeouf and David Morse as well as delivering some solid shocks and intricute camera play.
It remains a greatly entertaining and enriching view on the rewatch.
This was my first taste of a thriller film and I still love it. Shia Lebouf, say what you want about the guy, was exceptional in this film.
Voyeurism is seen in this on several occasions and even the cover of the film implies this. An example in the film is when Kale is spying on his neighbors with his binoculars because he is bored on house arrest. This proves to be critical because he later finds out that Mr. Turner may be hiding something and decides to find out what it is. Comedic voyeurism is present near the end of this film.
Voyeurism is present in this film at multiple times. One instance occurs when Kale is secretly watching Ashley changing with his binoculars. She quickly looks out the window making it seem like she knew Kale was watching and was trying to catch him. Another instance is when Kale is spying on Mr. Turner to see what he is truly up to.
This movie has so many problems. I thought the acting was on par to day time television drama and the dialog was about the same. I know its a remake of 'Rear Window', which I haven't seen, but I'm pretty sure the original didn't have such a contrived plot. Overall the movie had a couple good thrill moments, but on a whole was too poorly written and acted for me to recommend.
I've always enjoyed watching this, yes it's a predictable update of Rear Window, but I find it so entertaining with LaBeouf perfectly cast, his performance is what makes this a better film than it has a right to be!
Remember liking it more when it came out. Still fun though and David Morse is scary as hell.
Caught the end of this last night when I woke up in the middle of the night fighting a cold. Saw it again this morning. Always enjoy it and have mixed feelings about it as a sort of remake of Rear Window. It is entertaining and the suburbia element is sort of clever, and the increase to a serial killer and the involvement of the mother are justified given the choices made. Even so, this is no Hitchcock...
