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.
It might be a poor man's disturbia but its a good poor man's 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…
An overall fun teenage thriller.
For me this will always be one of my favorite Shia LaBeouf movies, his whole character portrayal is very entertaining and i loved how goofy/funny he was. The other cast members also do well with Sarah Roemer playing the hot girl next door and Aaron Yoo as your average best friend. The perhaps most overshadowed performance however comes from David Morse as a very chilling serial killer, his performance was very convincing to say the least. As for the thrilling side of things, it did keep me on the edge of my seat with the tension that was built well with sounds and lighting.
Cliche's and stereotypes aside, Disturbia is still a very gripping thriller that's definitely worth a watch.
Inspired from "Rear Window"... if you stop comparing it from rear window or you didn't see rear window, you can enjoy this movie....
Somebody told me to watch this because it's one of their favourite films. I think it's obvious that I need better friends.
I love Shia LaBeouf, but this was way before he came into his own. Instead, this is an obvious mystery, obviously influenced by Hitchcock's Rear Window, with a hot girl next door (Sarah Roemer). It's your standard thriller, but it's only bad because of the comparisons you can make.
I was a little bit conflicted on whether I should rate this based on merit or based on how much i enjoyed it, and I decided to go with enjoyment. This film is right on the brink of being a cookie-cutter, easily predictable teen thriller, and basically does succumb to that in the finale. However, I just had a great time watching it as Shia LaBeouf performed spectacularly, as always, allowing myself to get caught up in the mock-detective work that we all used to partake in at a younger age.
I love this silly motherfucking kid
The golden age of Shia LaBeouf.
It was a decent enough re-imagining of Rear Window, but it really didn't change enough to avoid falling into cliché and predictability. Everything was telegraphed from the word go. Even so, I still enjoyed it enough: it was tense and creepy and genuinely scary at times, and the characters were likeable enough (if rather unrealistic). The touches of modernity were a little too obvious, and will almost assuredly date the film in another fifty years or so, and the romantic subplot was pretty silly, but the main serial killer story was involving enough. The girl next door was pretty terrible, though; she didn't over- or underact, but it's almost like she had no idea how to act at all. Shia was pretty good, though. It's an okay little thriller, but not one that's gonna be remembered for very long.
I never gave up on Shia, and this is one of his best, most entertaining movies.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
