Based off the classic list by Ryback, I will delve into the archives and find all the films I love…
When terror is at your doorstep. You can run. Or you can fight.
Kyle (Nicholas Cage) and Sarah Miller (Nicole Kidman) have it all: a huge gated house on the water, fancy cars, and the potential for romance in their relationship. He's just back from a business trip (he brokers diamonds) and their teen daughter Avery (Liana Liberato) is sneaking out to a party, when four thugs in security uniforms and ski masks stage a home invasion. They want what's in the safe: cash and diamonds. As Kyle stalls them, trying to negotiate for Sarah's freedom, the fault lines in Kyle and Sarah's marriage and the pasts of the four robbers come into play. Is there room here for heroism?
Who takes their junkie girlfriend on a trip to burgle a house, anyway? That's just asking for trouble.
So I watched this for long enough to confirm that, yes, Nicolas Cage and Ben Mendelssohn have a big angry face-off, and yes, it's pretty fun. It's quite near the start, too, because in defiance of all confined-location-thriller logic this starts off volcanically shouty and riddled with whip-pans, and then stays on that level until you get bored of it. Cage does at least get a camp classic of a line later on - he has to use the phrase "filthy lusts" in a sentence, which is hard to imagine sounding natural coming from anyone, let alone Nicolas Cage - and that's…
Open it so we can all die, 'cause I don't give a fuck anymore!
Friends know that I'm a big fan of Nicole Kidman. I understand her critics and I might even agree on most of what she's even criticized for, but regardless my fondness for the Aussie actress is stronger then ever. And really that's how it should be. If you have a favorite actor or actress don't let popular opinion interfere with that... unless you're a fan of Katherine Heigl, then you can just go fuck yourself.
With that said, God Almighty this is a train wreck. It's films like this that make me wonder if Joel Schumacher suffers from multiple personalities. It's almost impossible to…
I could write a review about how this movie is disappointing but survives because it has a lot of talent in it.
But then I'd be telling a lie. It's just a mediocre bunch of crap.
There once was a jolly ol' Joel
Who buried Batman deep in a hole
And now with ol' Nic and Nicole
He may have robbed me of my soul
If vulgar auteurism will ever move beyond fetishisation of craft, Schumacher is ripe for discovery. The flashbacks of Kidman's seduction alone make this one a small, chaotic masterpiece.
A ridiculous brainless boring film. Nicholas Cage gives his worst performance to date along side a cast of characters as uninteresting as a plank of wood. Plot lines are picked up and dropped at randoms. The characters make no sense. The only positive is the teenage daughter is hot. A truly ugly film in every department.
what the fuck
Going into this, I didn't expect to learn anything or be moved or entertained in any way. I wasn't wrong. Trespass elsewhere, fans of quality.
I forgot I watched this. Thank God.....but now I remembered it......shit.
O jogo do gato e do rato. Diferentes tipos de lobos em pele de cordeiro.
I consider myself someone who can enjoy most movies. Especially bad ones. But Trespass is the worst thing I have ever seen. Even writing this my ptsd is being triggered. Oh god please help me. IT'S SO BAAAD
Even by Nicolas Cage standards this is atrocious bilge.
I dislocated my shoulder today and, on top of the three hours of excruciating pain, I'll be paying a thousand bucks in ambulance fees. To cheer myself up and forget about my financial woes, I needed a Cage fix. And boy does Trespass deliver! This is a great bad movie. There's about a thousand stupid twists. Everybody shouts and swears and shout-swears constantly — "SHUT THE FUCK UP", "GET THE FUCK DOWN", "FUCK"," FUCK", "FUUUUCK" etc. — and is permanently drenched in sweat. Both Nics give really silly performances, especially Cage who swings madly in tone, volume and character line to line. Big points to Ben Mendelsohn, who is usually an excellent actor and looks like he's having a blast…
Not quite sure why or how Joel Schumacher is still making movies.
32/100 - Mr Pink
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
