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?
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
Review In A Nutshell:
Panic Room did it much better.
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.
Nicole Kidman why? Nicolas Cage, I get it. Ben Mendelsohn, nice work. Unfortunately inept script that throws way too much in to try to allow for twists.
It could have been good if they had stuck to a more straight-forward plot like Funny Games did. By the end Trespass is like a parody of an M. Night Shyamalan film.
Humans would not act like that in said situation.
Totally generic home invasion movie featuring the stellar cast of Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, both far from their best. But it isn't Joel Schumacher's worst film - not by 8mm.
I never really expect much from Nicholas cage but I can't say the same about the usually brilliant Nicole Kidman .but in his film it does seem like she went to the acting school of Nicholas Cage. Not only is the acting poor but the film itself is nothing to sing about. I honestly thought at one point that the disc was looping back on itself as I just seemed to be watching the same scene over and over. I would say give this a miss but there are some very funny Nicholas cage facial expressions which earned this film the star I gave it.
A solid cast and slick camerawork aside, Trespass is a boring, tension-free, and forgettable thriller from director Joel Schumacher, with uninteresting and underdeveloped characters, a story that moves at a sluggish pace, and twists that get more ridiculous and predictable by the minute.
Wer spinnt sich so einen unlogischen Unsinn zusammen? Nicht mal mit viel gutem Willen kann ich über die vielen Logiklöcher hinwegsehen, die vor allem durch die zu komplizierte Geschichte entstehen. Leider nein.
A truly dumb thriller with too many unbelievable twists and turns. Ninety minutes of celluloid wasted. Cage and Kidman must have did this exclusively for the dollars. Certainly will not enhance anyone's career.
A list of films where the location manager could take a nice holiday. Suggestions welcome.
What comes below one star? Those films that are so bad you never see them, don't watch the trailers, avert…
