      누텔라 B. kinda keeps you on the edge of your seat. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review norma c I liked the concept. It was a treat to see James Caan. The critics didn't give this enough credit, nor the average audience---keep your mind open and imagine what you'd do in their place. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/19/22 Full Review Audience Member why the low reviews? because this movie is mislabeled. it is NOT horror. It is NOT crime. It is NOT a thriller. It is a drama, tragedy, real life. It is the story of 2 kids who prank an innocent old man (their neighbor) and how the prank goes wrong leading to a terrible accident. Criminal charges and arrests follow. It is sad and serious. It is a good movies, emotional and an unfortunate series of event. You will not be amused and entertained. Its a heavy serious movie. This is why the low reviews. If you like romantic comedies, life lessons, serious tragic movies, documentaries and are a serious person, you will enjoy this movie that makes you think of life and the consequences of our actions. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The plot itself was very interesting. However, the movie felt very slow and had many unnecessary scenes with the teenagers hanging out. Also there were some scenes were it weren't developed enough like ethan's grudge towards the neighbor. Overall, the movie could've been organized differently to add more suspense and mystery as to why Harold shot himself at the end. In addition, Ethan's character could've been more developed where it is easier for the viewers to understand his psychological state. Anyways, this could've been a really good essay paper for an English class. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not only was it very slow, it was very disappointing to see that there wasn't a more sinister twist in the end. I guess I applaud its effort for going against the grain and not having the main suspect be a murderer, like in Disturbia or Summer of 84. I'm glad I gave it a try though. It wasn't the worst movie ever. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyed this film up until the end, which really brought the rating down for me. It was really sad to see that those kids tortured this poor old man and get a slap on the wrist after. It was so frustrating because that is how our system really operate, justice will not be served or money overpowers. In this case we know the one family had a lot of money, and they were able to get away with what they did. The very last scene we see the kid Ethan smirking as if he got the revenge that he wanted and had no remorse which made it even more sickening to me. Good good terrible ending!!!

      Nick Schager Village Voice A film that - from its basic set-up to its dearth of tension - plays like the tedious inverse of Don't Breathe. Sep 16, 2016 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times The dreary lack of suspense in this tweaked "Rear Window" scenario, and our inability to care one whit for two cruel, arrogant bullies operating under a perceived notion that they're social scientists, makes this one tough going. Sep 15, 2016 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety There's not much real suspense stirred here by a premise that straddles recent found-footage thrillers and "Rear Window." Mar 17, 2016 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It What starts out as a cruel, yet carefully crafted prank, ends in a paranoid delusion with an emotional twist. Rated: 3/5 Jan 2, 2021 Full Review Trace Thurman Bloody Disgusting It does run into some pacing issues and suffers from a duo of unlikable protagonists, but makes up for it all in the final reel with an emotional sucker punch of an ending. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Aaron Peterson The Hollywood Outsider After you spend some time with this Good Neighbor, you might second guess yourself the next time you feel the urge to yank those blinds down. Rated: 6/10 Oct 25, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
