Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
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?
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
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.
A film like this, with home invaders trying to get into nicolas cage's safe and him trying to stall them and save his wife, is obviously meant to be a tense battle of wits between captor and captee.
Shame that none of the characters came armed.
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…
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.
The Lord’s Prayer says we should forgive those who trespass against us but I’m not sure I can forgive Joel Schumacher for inflicting this soporific film on the moviegoing public. Ignoring Kidman’s expressionless face (Nicolas Cage ends up gurning for the both of them) the performances are adequate enough but the problems arise in the story department.
As it is a contained thriller it either requires compelling characters or a plot that keeps the audience guessing and on the edge of their seat: Trespass doesn’t achieve any of these things. Sure, it throws in a number of twists but they are either predictable or stupid. The characters and their back stories are banal and add very little to the overall experience beyond padding out a story that struggles to sustain its slender runtime. There is no verve to the direction and no sense of tension or panic. It is an inert story that is utterly forgettable.
The second in my new series: Nic on Netflix.
Yikes! This goes down so fast from mediocre to this-was-in-the-script? bad in the last 25 minutes, I could barely believe it. The first half is beautifully shot and I like the lead bad guy. An entertaining Nic Cage is nowhere to be found. There is no reason to watch this movie.
2 fun facts: cost $35 million and made $24k in theaters; beat out From Justin to Kelly for quickest release to home video from theaters at 18 days.
Nic's job/appearance: A diamond broker, and he's got his typical hair cut a little shorter than normal. It looks weird. Also terrible eyeglasses.
Best Nic moment: there really isn't anything to pick from. He is so sedated and boring in this throughout. Apparently he stopped production on this movie demanding to switch roles to be the bad guy. The next day he changed his mind back.
The entire movie is an endless stream of why-i-oughtas followed by a "NOOOOO don't kill him/her!". No real twists or change of pace, just the same thing over and over. And the only thing I could think was how did these real actors go along with acting these scenes? Shockingly bad even for Cage and Schumacher.
Home invasion thriller with plot twist after plot twist. As you may have noticed from that short description, there are a lot of plot twists. Too bad most of them don't make sense or aren't that interesting. There are a few moments where the hectic story moves into hysteria and the viewer gets a few laughs out of the story. Both Cage and Kidman go really big, because the director asked for it, even if the script didn't.
When Nic Cage is bored, your movie is screwed.
Set the all-time record for pointless twists in a film.
This movie was hilarious! I loved it. Great-bad for me!
If you can get past the excessive twists, an entirely serviceable dumb thriller.
I like the one with Ice-T much better.
Tone-deaf dialogue and relentless scenery-chewing discredits the tension, while the plot unravels arrhythmically with the plausibility of a John Boehner budget agreement. As asinine movies go, it's not unenjoyable once you surrender to its wildly convoluted plot, scornful disdain for logic and gratuitous flashbacks. So if you're going to give Trespass a spin, take your critical thinking and shove it right up your ass.
