Disturbia was amazing the first time I saw it, great the second and now it has plateau-ed at good. This movie was in the beginning of Shia’s career just a few months prior to his role as Sam Witwicky in Transformers. When he was in this movie he was still trying to stand on his own two feet – away from Disney. Personally, I still believe he did a great job and helped to mold his acting personality.

The movie itself has a general storyline that has been done before, but it is my opinion that they do that storyline very well. They concentrated a bit much on the romance aspect, but in the end the success or failure of the “hero” had nothing to do with the girl and that was somewhat refreshing.

I kind of wish Hollywood would understand that girls are in it for the storylines too and not just the romance.

Overall Opinion – 3/5
