What's really going on in that neighbourhood?
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.
Disturbia is a modern day, teen focused, Shia LaBeouf starring re-imagination of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window. This sounds like the it should be the worst thing ever, but despite a few shortcomings it is actually surprisingly entertaining.
It's worth noting that this doesn't try to be a remake of Rear Window and strives to be its own thing (to a degree), only really sharing the central premise, and even then there's countless changes made to prevent it from destroying the classic film's legacy.
The early scenes of Nickelodeon style romance and goofy Shia shenanigans are pretty dull and borderline cringeworthy at times. However in the second half it actually gets pretty good and effectively thrilling. The pace is…
One of my last few nights working at Family Video, so I decided to throw one of my favorite movies to watch. It was an especially slow night, so I was able to watch all of it.
God, what an amazing piece of cinema.
On a whim, I tweeted out a picture from Family Video saying we were playing it in the store and I mentioned Shia, Sarah Roemer, Aaron Yoo, Christopher Landon (writer), and the director D.J. Caruso.
Sarah liked the tweet! Literally my teenhood crush LIKED. MY. TWEET.
And guess what?
D.J. CARUSO THE DIRECTOR OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME LIKED AND RETWEETED MY TWEET!!!!!
I've done all I want to do in this world. I am ready to go on into the next.
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.
Much more enjoyable than expected. David Morse killed it (haha) as the creepy neighbour.
1st group watched film, very exciting - bertface's recommendation
kind of a dumb, boring horror-ified rip off of rear window. kinda entertaining, i watched it on a bus in middle school.
When it got tired of being predictably painful it fell back on being painfully predictable.
real fucking weird but pretty cool at the same time
probably best if you're semi-drunk

A childhood favorite that holds up great. Shia LaBeouf is genuinely great in this. Lots of tension, chilling finale, fun first half.
