Disturbia is simply a brilliant mystery-thriller movie. The story is about a high school student known as Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf) who is sentenced under house arrest for punching his teacher in the face. So he gets bored at his house, especially when his mother Julie Brecht (Carrie-Ann Moss) cuts him off from using the television, playing his music and computer games. So to thrill himself, Kale (Shia) decides to spy what his close neighbours are doing and despite the early fun and pleasure he gains from it, it gradually get out of control and is leading him to not only trouble, but danger too. He also has new neighbours moving over, but there's simply more to this film then what just meets the EYE.
Disturbia is a must see film especially for younger viewers. Not only its a mystery-thriller film, but also involves a lot of romance. The cast was brilliant in their roles and each did justice to their characters.
I personally enjoyed this film very much as it kept me interested right from the moment the film started and is now one of my favourite thriller films to date. All characters have done justice to their roles. Disturbia rightly deserves an 8, as it was simply that good of a thriller to watch. Make sure you do if you already haven't.
