Me and my friends were of the same opinion Mooperman that the trailer came across a bit like the first Matrix.

Disturbia was ok, but heavily influenced by Hitchcock's Rear Window.

Steven Spielberg and two major Hollywood studios have been accused of stealing the plot of last year's Disturbia from Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 classic Rear Window. According to Reuters, Universal and Spielberg's studio DreamWorks are named in a lawsuit filed by the Sheldon Abend Revocable Trust, claiming that they broke copyright for producing Disturbia without the permission of the rights holders.

Hitchcock's Rear Window was based on Cornell Woolrich's short story Murder From A Fixed Viewpoint. The British director acquired the film rights in 1953 and the lawsuit argues that DreamWorks should have done the same.

This just opened at Number 1 in the U.S., beating off competition from the Diane Lane and Richard Gere romance "Nights In Rodanthe" at No.2.

Reviews are mixed but they are praising LeBeouf. :smashin:

Well, I'll be avoiding this one - it got absolutely crucified in the October issue of Total Film, garnering just 1 out 5 stars.

Is this movie any good ive heard mixed reviews
by all accounts its exciting, see post above, but completely OTT in terms of plot as review suggest, so i guess if you liked 'Wanted', which was pretty similar, cool action, a dodgy plot, then you'll like this. I might give it a go.

When are people ever going to just watch a film and see if they like it themselves?

Since when have film Critics become Gods that must be followed?
