Not expecting a masterpiece, I can honest say I was very pleasantlysurprised at just how much fun I had watching this movie. While itclearly tries way too hard to be hip, and the staggering amount ofproduct placement serves only to distract, the story serves its purposeof allowing DJ Caruso to pull every trick out of the book, to verysatisfying effect.<br><br>Shia LaBeouf just about gets by on his charm, but also hints at hisability as an actor, which was firmly cemented through his stunningperformance in 'A Guide To Recoginzing Your Saints' last year. Hischaracter is nothing new, nor is his predicament, but he remainslikable enough and it is hardly difficult to see why he is so taken byhis new neighbour, played by the gorgeous Sarah Roemer.<br><br>David Morse is appropriately creepy as the neighbourhood nut-job andCarrie Anne Moss, while given little to work with, is fine as LaBeouf'smother.<br><br>The story unfolds well, and the red herrings serves to stretch theanticipation until the brutally tense finale. If you're looking for 90minutes of unabashed, self-indulgent fun, you could do a lot worse than'Disturbia'.
