Trivia

The U.S. Legal website defines 'Unlawful Entry' as an ". . . illegal entry upon lands or structures without force but by means of fraud or other willful wrong. It is closely related to housebreaking. But unlike housebreaking, the intent to commit an offense within the place entered is not needed for this offense. The basis of proof for this offense is that the entry was unlawful and that the conduct of the accused was contrary to good order and discipline. Burglary may be one of three types: forcible entry, attempted forcible entry, or unlawful entry. Unlawful entry refers to persons without the legal right to be on the property and who have gained entry even though force was not used." See more »

Worth a Watch
2 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film by chance when it was on TV late one night I couldn't sleep. The film centres around a couple who have their home broken into and the policeman who responds to the scene and how he becomes obsessed with their lives.

In all honesty, I didn't have high hopes for it, but in actual fact, it was hugely entertaining. It was never going to be an Oscar winner, but it was clever, original and the acting was good too. The film has a nice pace to it and the story flows reasonably well in that the film is neither too long nor too short. I perhaps wouldn't call it a classic but it is certainly a good film, and a little known and under-appreciated one at that. Kurt Russel, as usual does a good turn and the best part of the film is that you truly connect with how Russel's character feels. It's the sort of film that'll have you on edge and almost screaming at the TV. Watch and enjoy!
