Lakeview Terrace is a really good film. Like another commenter said it is more of a drama with thriller parts in it. I thought it was actually really realistic and could've happened with the correct setting.
It might sometimes lean too much on the "intelligent proud of himself ecologically friendly Democrat" vs. the "stupid conservative brutal Republican" but I guess it just exaggerates reality to prove a point.
It takes a really interesting view on racism, stereotypes and all the like and actually makes the viewer think rather than blame. Even though one character might be "the bad guy" we can still feel why and through what logic he is acting, which actually adds to the drama. The "good guys" on the other hand also make mistake and do not act boldly in a super-hero fashion.
I was stuck to my chair during the whole representation and the story never lacks suspense.
I strongly recommend it to anyone.
