3.0 out of 5 stars A mediocre Home-Invasion movie
Nicolas Cage (Bad Lieutenant) plays Kyle Miller - a sharp-suited and even sharper-tongued diamond broker.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mediocre Home-Invasion movie, 18 Nov 2011

Nicolas Cage (Bad Lieutenant) plays Kyle Miller - a sharp-suited and even sharper-tongued diamond broker. His lifestyle has afforded him a beautiful wife, Sarah (Nicole Kidman - Eyes Wide Shut) a daughter, Avery (Liana Liberato - Last Sin Eater) and an even more beautiful mansion in the sticks. Things look pretty sweet for Kyle until his house is invaded by a group of armed thugs and they hold everyone hostage, demanding that Kyle open the biometric-safe on the wall. However things are not as straight forward as they seem; as fractures appear within the invader's group led by Elias (Ben Mendelsohn - Killer Elite) & one of the group keeps eyeing Sarah knowingly - just what is going on here?

Trespass is a tense and well-filmed affair, the mix of obvious amateurs & hardened professionals within the invaders group piques your interest from the off as it is obvious this is no regular hold-up. When this is coupled with Cage's silver-tongued performance trying to outwit the invaders it makes for an interesting stand-off. Everyone's acting is solid and Kidman deserves a mention for her truly unreadable performance and Cage only really goes 'hyper-Cage' once. Unfortunately, aside from Mendolsohn, the invasion crew are just a bunch of bit-parters and it really shows, a lot of the script is cheesily delivered and rather predictable. It's not that they didn't try; there is twist after twist, but you see every single one coming a mile off, the script is that obvious.

Extras: Just the one - "Trespass: Inside the Thriller" A 5-minute, on-the-set, featurette with comments from director Joel Schumacher & the rest of the cast.

It's difficult to pick apart exactly what is wrong with Trespass without revealing the story, but suffice to say, there are some scenes that are laughable and there are several points where things become a bit illogical. The ending is a real letdown and becomes a joke due to a dubious use of a nail gun - It's as if someone took an existing home invasion movie (Hostage or Funny Games) and then tacked on their own minor plot variations. The result falls well short of Fincher's Panic Room but it's not unwatchable.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you have seen one home invasion film..., 13 Aug 2014

This review is from: Trespass [DVD] (DVD)
Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman play a couple being held hostage in their own home by masked criminals who want the contents of their safe. As the stand off escalates, secrets come tumbling out; on both sides.

Joel Schumacher directs a super cast that also includes Ben Mendelsohn and Liana Liberato, in this wildly over the top home invasion thriller. At first glance it seems like a standard robbery, but the makers aim for something more complex via character dynamics, which works up until the mid-point, but after that it spirals out of control and the twists and flash backs become boorish. The dialogue is often awfully trite and the finale is too WTF to pay you off your patience. Ouch. 5/10

'Nicolas Cage' 'Nicole Kidman' and 'Liana Liberato' ( the first two being among Hollywood's super-star list, the latter, has surely got a great future ) play 'Kyle' (Cage) 'Sarah' (Kidman) and 'Avery Miller' (Liberato') a family that are subjected to an intense and violent attack in their home by a hooded and armed gang who believe there is both money and diamonds in the house'
'Kyle' knows if they give into the gangs wishes the family are as good as dead, do they try to run or do they fight back.
it really is a decent watch, it has just about all the ingredients needed in this type of movie, certainly worth a spin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Time-Pass, 15 Mar 2012
By

This review is from: Trespass [DVD] (DVD)
'Trespass' is a psychological thriller film that released in 2011 to bad reviews and became a box-office disaster. The movie was released in theaters (within the US) and on Video-On-Demand at the same time. Also, 'Trespass' has beaten the 2003 box-office bomb, From Justin to Kelly's record of the fastest release from cinema to DVD within the US. It took From Justin to Kelly 29 days whereas 'Trespass' managed it in 18 days.

The movie tells the story of a married couple, Kyle and Sarah Miller (Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman) and their daughter (Liana Liberato) who are kidnapped by a group of robbers.

'Trespass' has been subject to harsh criticism but it's actually a watchable fare bringing back the action-feel of the 1990's, which I miss. Yes, it's a tried and tested formula and offers nothing new in content. However, the pace is fast and there are plenty of twists to keep you entertained. The ending is also quite good.

Where the movie deserves the flak fully is on the acting side, Cage and crew perform to Razzie award winning standards. I wasn't impressed. The screen presence of Cage and Kidman is sort of compensating though. I've always been a Cage fan but it wasn't nice to hear of reports that he left the project at one point as he wanted to play the role of the kidnapper and not Kidman's hubby. The makers were having none of it. Apparently, shortly after Cage returned to complete the movie.

Joel Schumacher gets it wrong when you compare this effort with his previous quality films like The Lost Boys, The Client, Falling Down etc. On the acting side of things from the actors, surely he must've noticed how bad it was. Schumacher has also received criticism due to the feature's canny resemblance to the disturbing and brutal 2010 Spanish flick, 'Secuestrados (Kidnapped)'.

Unfortunately 'Trespass' had production issues, flopped commercially and the list goes on. For me, the product is old wine in a new bottle and it tastes okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars NICOLE KIDMAN MUST NOT DIE!, 10 July 2013

This review is from: Trespass [DVD] (DVD)
Nicolas Cage stars as Kyle Miller, a rich successful diamond dealer with a home safe bigger than my bank's. He doesn't have time for his family. Nicole Kidman plays his wife Sarah who struggles to keep the family together. Liana Liberato is their daughter Avery, who is at that difficult rebellious teen stage. She is not allowed to see Kendra (Emily Meade) who is a bad influence on her.

Once the characters are quickly established the movie turns into a home break-in film. Avery is not at home because she disobeyed her parents to go to a party with Kendra...a party that has the forbidden older boys!

While Kyle and his wife are being bullied and threatened, Kyle is attempting to figure out who these people are from indirect clues they give him. Cage manages to cause disharmony among the thieves. There are flashbacks as Kyle and Kidman think they know who these people are. As it turns out they both have their dirty little secrets. Excellent job by the actors. Fairly decent script for a home break-in which is normally a "B" movie. Good script with multiple twists and they weave seeming useless things from the beginning into the mesh. One of the better home break-in films. If you liked this one try the new version of "Mother's Day."

One of the thieves, Jordana Spiro, for some reason feels she must look around upstairs in her bra and panties. Thanks.

F-bomb. No sex. No nudity.

Absolutely terrible. Nicolas Cage looks dreadful (I love Nicolas Cage) and the script and the acting by everyone is awful. Don't bother wasting your time with this movie.
