Predictable Thriller
23 October 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New York, Dr. Juliet Bliss Devereau (Hilary Swank) of the Brooklyn General Hospital has ended her relationship with her boyfriend Jack (Lee Pace) and is seeking an apartment in Brooklyn to live alone. She finds a bargain in an old apartment building owned by the handsome and lonely Max (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and one night she misinterprets his signals and dates him. However she concludes that it is too soon to have a love affair and she asks Max to leave her apartment. However she does not know that Max is a deranged man obsessed on her and that he spies her from secret openings in her apartment. Further, Max is drugging Juliet every night and sexually abusing of her. Juliet has troubles to wake up in the morning to go to the hospital and decides to install a monitoring system in her apartment. She learns the truth about Max but how to escape from the insane landlord?

"The Resident" is a predictable thriller that the viewer knows exactly what is going to happen in the next scene. I do not understand why an awarded actress like Hilary Swank that was Oscar winner twice in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category could accept to participate in a lame film like "The Resident". My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Inquilina" ("The Tennant")
