The previews for the `Glass House' made it look like an interesting thriller and so I rented it with hopes that it wasn't it a waste of my 4 bucks. It was. Who the heck wrote the dialogue for this movie?? Don't you hate it when movie makers try to appeal to the younger crowd by using dialogue that they believe is `hip?' If that little kid says `Sweeeeet!' one more time I swear I'll smack him. Aside from the poor dialogue the movie does have it's moments. The actor who plays Terry is so scary looking and sounding that I get shivers just thinking about his glare (shivers). There was so much potential for Terry to do something really mean but the movie never takes advantage of it. It brings up the suspense to almost a max and lets you down. It's true that it's predictable because Ruby never loses. Way too easy. So I give it a 4 out of 10 for misusing the great actors that played Ruby and Terry.
Ok cars were ok but the relationships between the characters was not believable. I don't think that Dom and Brian connected so closely as to warrant what happened in the end. And the romance between Brian and Mia seemed to have come from no where. I believed Mia and Leon's love/hate relationship more.
If you have time and money to spend or maybe you got a free coupon from blockbuster, go ahead and watch this film. It won't really change your life or make you think but it may make you want to save up for a 80,000 car to drag and destroy. What fun.
