Trespass begins with just enough history we begin to get bored when the plot arrives full force, dragging us to the edge of our seats. As the plot unfolds a bit more with Kyle and Sarah beginning to learn things about each other, the plot then pushes us back in the seat in amazement. From there the twists and turns are hot and fast up until the film skids to a halt with screeching tires, smoke, and no happy ending in sight.
Acting wasn’t exactly good but it wasn’t bad either. Cage felt out of place for a while, then felt like he was 2 steps ahead of everyone. Kidman was much the same seeming to be out of step through much of the film before snapping into place. Gigandet was an excellent choice in his role and pulled it off well. The remainder of the supporting cast was decent.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were simple with a fairly static set that fit the film well with a solid feel. Physical effects were pretty good with plenty of violence and gore. Dialogue was enjoyable, as were sound and soundtrack.
Overall Trespass is a solid crime thriller that builds on a well worn plot. Genre fans will enjoy this the most though some will be unhappy with the violence and blood.
With violence, terror, foul language, drug use, and mild sexuality save this for older teens and above.
