The movie was made a year after the big box office hit Terminator 2 Judgement Day (1991), which also had a bad LAPD cop, played by Robert Patrick, but the twist was, he was a shape shifting Terminator. Ray Liotta later worked with Robert Patrick in Cop Land (1997), in which they both were corrupt cops. See more »
I consider myself a big film buff, but before I'd seen it recently, I'd never even heard of Unlawful Entry. The story is pretty simple: a couple in love (Kurt Russell and Madeline Stowe) make friends with a cop (Ray Liotta) who turns out to be possessive and to make their lives a living hell (see also: The Cable Guy, which follows the same lines). But, with a simple story, this low-key film deserves recognition for being a clever and original thriller. Throughout the film, you feel all the emotions that Kurt Russell is feeling as his life is slowly taken away from him by the ever-menacing Ray Liotta. In brief, this is a fabulous film, which was under-appreciated and a missed hit.
