Becky and I went to see Disturbia on Saturday night. We went to the Colorado Cinemas in Castle Rock, Colorado and it was pretty packed. The Yahoo website at Disturbia describes the movie as follows:
“After his father’s death, Kale becomes sullen, withdrawn, and troubled — so much so that he finds himself under a court-ordered sentence of house arrest. His mother, Julie, 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…”
Disturbia is a really surprisingly good teen flick that delivered as a psychological thriller. This movie was nuts from the initial car accident at the beginning of the film until the roller coaster ride at the neighbors home at the very end.
Unlike Fracture where you know what has happened and you’re wondering if Anthony Hopkins is going to get away with killing his wife, Disturbia has you wondering what’s going to happen from one scene to the next. They were both really great movies, but Disturbia reminded us more of an Alfred Hitchcock thriller like Psycho or Rear Window where you were truly on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
Disturbia is rated PG-13, but it probably should have been rated R for the violence. It’s a spooky flick that was done extremely well and we both really enjoyed it. The only problem with teen flicks are the teenagers who show up and play with their cell phones and talk with their friends the entire movie. You may want to see this one at AMC where they monitor the kids better than at the Colorado Cinemas.
We both liked it and thought it was definitely worth the trip and possibly one not to miss.
