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.
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.
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.
First third of this is surprisingly good. Does just what a Hitchcock remake should do, which is not try to ape Hitch style at all. Instead, it turns the REAR WINDOW scenario into a horrific hellscape of teenage paranoia. A masturbation scene is cloaked by pretending it's about Kale (hahaha his name is "Kale") scratching his itchy house-arrest ankle monitor, and his inability to go talk to the girl next door is a function of physical impossibility. Then, when his mother kills his TV and video games, he turns to the television outside -- voyeurism. Suddenly the camera becomes an operator of this "show," and Kale's binoculars are his screen. Caruso even takes a good deal of time to flesh…
you just gotta look..
La Beouf pulled off a very convincing suburban, mid-00's, teenage bro. I have seen young guys like this flopping around in each others' parents' McMansions and really enjoying summer. Almost brings a tear to my eye thinking about the Hollister opening in my mall and stepping into their wonderland-- All American Rejects cologne bomb.
A few things didn't make sense-- mostly the A River Runs Through It opening that doesn't match anything.
And I don't think I like Hitchcock adaptations.
Surprisingly tense and thrilling, strong performance from Shia LaBeouf. Strange that it isn't credited as a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic 'Rear Window'.
Thought it was time for a revisit and this still surprisingly holds up.
This film is great. Really enjoyed it my second time through. Does a good job being a rear window in today's world. Really suspenseful
Just one of those films you like for whatever reason. I always enjoy this movie when it's on. Shia LaBeouf always puts on a great performance and is always charming, funny and entertaining.
I'm one of the few people who really enjoyed Disturbia, it was a fun formulaic thriller, with a great opening scene. I think Shia LaBeouf is actually pretty good in this film, and David Morse is incredibly creepy here. It's no masterpiece, but I had lots of fun.
All the films mentioned by name in Kim Newman's definitive encyclopedia of horror films, Nightmare Movies. Well worth a read.…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
