4.5 out of 10 Disturbia
Daryll from Limerick, 30 Jun 2008
After his father is killed in a car accident, things unravel for Kale Brecht and he is placed under house-arrest for punching his Spanish teacher. Having nothing better to do, Kale occupies himself by spying on his neighbors. But one night, he witnesses what appears to be a murder going on in Mr. Turner's house. Kale becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind these murders but, after a few unsettling run-ins with Mr. Turner, it becomes a matter of life and death. And the ominous question:

1.5 out of 10 Good fun, but full of holes & not exactly scary...
Ginger from Dublin, 18 Mar 2008
This film was good fun, but nothing more. I'm a fan of both the lowbrow & highbrow varieties of thrillers/horrors, so I don't turn my nose up to the funny low-budget ones. However, because of the cast in this film (Shia La Beouf, Carrie-Anne Moss, David Morse), I expected it to be more of the sinister highbrow variety & it just wasn't. It was great for a laugh, but not really very frightening at all & as the old saying goes 'the plot had so many holes it was like Swiss cheese.'

2.5 out of 10 Decent without being great
Lucy from Dublin, 16 Apr 2008
Like a modern, teen re-telling of Rear Window, this is a solid enough thriller, without troubling the great Hitchcock's legacy. Shia la Beouf is an engaging young actor, but he's no James Stewart, and some of the plot's twists and turns are either predictable or contrived. The focus on the teen actors mightn't hold the attention of older viewers either. Not the worst film ever, just okay.

3.5 out of 10 Worth a watch!
Katrina from Kilkenny, 26 Mar 2008
I found this movie very entertaining. The lead is very amusing and is quite close to his personality in Transformers. If you're looking for a thriller but nothing too intense then this is for you. The ending is a bit weak, no real twists or turns but well worth a watch.

2 out of 10 Original is Best
Colm from Galway, 04 Apr 2008
I don't know why Hollywood keeps feeling it necessary to remake legendary classics like Rear Window when they know they can't be improved upon. We're so much better off with Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart!

What's it about....
After his father's death, Kale (Shia LaBeouf) becomes sullen, withdrawn, and troubled - so much so that he finds himself under a court-ordered sentence of house arrest. His mother, Julie (Carrie-Anne Moss), works night and day to support herself and her son, only to be met with indifference and lethargy. The walls of his house begin to close in on Kale. He becomes a voyeur as his interests turn outside the windows of his suburban home towards those of his neighbors, one...
