      Stoner J Super underrated 90s thriller. Zemeckis and Gale wrote a killer story and the cast and crew pulled off a really thrilling experience! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/30/23 Full Review Steve D Not sure why I should pull for anyone involved. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review mark b The film purportedly takes place in Fort Smith, AR, wherein I live. I know fireman here, and they are nothing like this. The people who wrote this never set foot in Arkansas, and insult the people who live here. I am not an AR native, but I have taught here for 38 years, and the assumption that everyone here is like this is wrong and dubious. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Crackling action film from director Walter Hill ("The Warriors" "48hrs" "Streets of Fire") and writers Bob Gale & Robert Zemeckis ("Used Cars" "Back to the Future" "Bordello of Blood"). Bill Paxton and William Sadler play firefighters who stumble upon a treasure map leading to stolen gold, but while poking through an abandoned factory they end up witnesses to a gangland execution by Ice-T, Ice Cube, Glenn Plummer, Tiny Lister, and other familiar tough guy character actors. From there, "Trespass" becomes a smart siege film, with the firefighters locked in a secure room with Ice-T's little brother as a hostage while the bad guys outside try to figure their way in. There's also a colorful Art Evans ("Die Hard 2" "Fright Night") as a homeless man who happens to be trapped in the factory with them. Gale and Zemeckis craft a smart script with themes of greed, race, and class, with many echos of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," which is an interesting change of pace for the two given their films usually have a lighter touch. Hill shoots the film fast and dirty, with his usual panache for muscular action sequences that mix MTV style of editing with Peckinpah and Fuller styles of gritty brutality. Top that off with an excellent score by Ry Cooder and you have what is arguably one of Hill's best films. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie, worth the watch if you like laid back action movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid 90s thriller from Walter Hill. The only problem I have is a couple threads are left dangling and the end is rather abrupt. Not entirely satisfied with the outcome. But it's entertaining watching all these great character actors play off each other. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/18/18 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jim Hemphill Chicago Reader Hill is one of the most proficient directors in Hollywood when it comes to using editing as an expressive tool. Rated: 4/4 Jun 2, 2022 Full Review TIME Magazine There's something bracing about the utter amorality of Trespass. Jul 25, 2010 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly In a season dominated by bloated blockbuster wannabes, it's easy to respond to the lean-and-mean B-movie pleasures of Trespass. Rated: B Jul 6, 2010 Full Review Mitchell Beaupre Paste Magazine Paxton's performance utilizes his tremendous gift for taking a mild-mannered average man, placing him on the razor wire of a moral dilemma, and watching him twist and turn as his ethics fall to the wayside and he has to fight to survive. Rated: 8.5/10 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Steve Warren Southern Voice (Atlanta) Surreal touches recall Hill's Streets of Fire, but this time the director's tongue is so far back in his cheek we can't be sure when he's kidding. May 9, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy In his best action films, director Walter Hill employs an economic, fast-paced style that obscures whatever faults might be found in the script. He works that magic again with Trespass. Rated: 3/4 Nov 8, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
