Trespass Audience Reviews

Matrixston Wow! Such a good movie.
ShangLuda Admirable film.
Glimmerubro It is not deep, but it is fun to watch. It does have a bit more of an edge to it than other similar films.
Mathilde the Guild Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
videorama-759-859391 What's sad about this underrated B film, is like Dr Giggles, their billboards were put up, but they were a no show at the cinema, where they didn't get a run. What's crazy before I proceed with this review, is that there's hardly any violence at all, where this was given a R certificate, where the very gory Dr Giggles, one well refined horror film received only an M. Was that the violence in Trespass, was more realistic? There's only two bits, one bit, a fresh bloodied shirt of one not so lucky victim, was the only the reason. It couldn't of been the needle plunging neck scene. Trespass is one refreshing, exciting movie wonderfully and tensely structured, by a favored director, we love, where this one would of fallen under the radar. In Adelaide, it got a brief screening, one of a three movie showing, the other films being Sliver and Body Of Evidence. This movie certainly deserves more credit, your viewing time, but also, or more importantly, be respected,, where you'll be wonderfully surprised. The plot has firemen buddies, better actors, Paxton, giving his all again and the wonderfully versatile Sadler who are given a treasure map, by an old guy, who chooses to go down with the flames They travel from Arkansaw to St Louis, to a desecrated building, where hidden in this one spot, is a greedy display of shining gold. Only they should of come another day, as Paxton, becomes a spotted witness to an arranged killing of this cheating drug dealer (Glenn Plummer, think midget, Tony "Little Man" Cox, grown to full size) who's thrown off the top of the building, where the middle of his back, cracks on a railing below, before plunging back off it, so it wasn't a pleasant drop. The gang is headed by Ice T, as King James, and he doesn't do a bad job. I came to realize later Ice T, isn't a bad actor. Ice Cube wasn't bad either as one of King Jame's gang, where the other black actors give good performances too, Stoney Jackson, being one that stands out, where the other one, was the black, loud dressy dude, who came later, one dude that lives coolness. Just watch when he gets stopped by two black cops. For Paxton and Sadler, strategy and situations ensue, where the two parties hold out. The stakes are raised, when the firemen take Ice T'S little brother, Lucky, well not so lucky on this day. Paxton and Sadler also have a bit of headache they don't need, from an old black vagrant, they keep hostage. The gold objects that are uncovered, are amazing to look at, kind of making us visually envious. I really liked Paxton's character, where Sadlers got on my nerve, where I didn't really care about this obnoxious fellow at all. It wouldn't matter, if he lived or died. Trespass has you engrossed from the very start to end, trust me. It's something different, and it's great, the two contrasting parties. Who will survive? The climax is a classic, and the location exterior outside the buildings with their it's tight shots, really makes you feel you there, but also has you wondering what's beyond these buildings. This restricted atmosphere beautifully befits the mood of this good film. This film just had me momentarily, wishing Billy Paxton was still with us, and for fans of him, this movie is a nice reminder. His personality and avid input into his characters, will have us thinking of him as one of those wild actors, but will also have us remembering this good hearted guy, off camera. A missed cinema surprise, another one being that Robert Zemekis, was one of the producers on this. Don't rent the Nicolas Cage one by mistake. Great movie poster, and grinding music. Thanks again, Mr Hill.
NateWatchesCoolMovies Walter Hill's Trespass could raise a pulse in a quiet graveyard, it's so relentless. It's one of those single location, breathless siege thrillers where two unlucky dudes, this time Bill Paxton and William Sadler, are barricaded in some unfortunate building while hordes of inner city criminals try to smoke them out. Billy and Willy are two firemen in the wrongest of places at the wrongest of times, led to a dilapidated St. Louis warehouse in search of a hidden cache of stolen gold. When one of them stumbles into a gangland assassination, the two are immediately branded as witnesses and hinted like dogs by boss King James (a snarling Ice-T), his lieutenant Savon (Ice Cube) and armies of their men. That's pretty much the premise, and simple as it is, action maestro Hill turns it into a ballistic bloodbath that barely slows down for a second once it gets going. Paxton and Sadler are soon at each other's throats in a feverish haze of adrenaline, whilst the two Ices argue amongst themselves about tactical logistics. Yelling, shooting, running, borderline parkour, cat and mouse games, beloved 90's action tropes and fight scenes that almost wind the audience as much as the characters. This is a lean cut of a film, concerned only with thrilling the pants off the viewer, hurtling by at a locomotive's pace without rest until that final shell casing hits the pavement.
peterpants66 Not even the Beatles could write songs everyone liked, and although Walter Hill is no mop-top he's second to none when it comes to thought provoking action movies. The nineties came and social platforms were changing in music and film, the emergence of the Rapper turned movie star was in full swing, the acting took a back seat to each man's overpowering regional accent and transparent acting. This was one of the many ice-t movies i saw as a kid and loved, only to watch them later and cringe. Bill Paxton and William Sadler are firemen with basic lives until a burning building tenant about to go up in flames hands over a map with gold implications. I hand it to Walter for quickly and neatly setting up the main characters and location. But i fault everyone involved for turning out Lame-o performances. Ice-t and cube must have been red hot at this time, and while I've enjoyed both their careers as rappers, in my opinion they fell flat in this movie. I got the feeling that everyone on set was sord of confused and just playing things off the cuff. There are two things i still enjoy about it, one involves a scene with a needle and the other is Sadler's huge 45 pistol. Bottom line this movie is like domino's pizza. Yeah ill eat it if I'm hungry and i don't feel like cooking, But I'm well aware it's not very good.
krycek19 First of all I hate those moronic rappers, who could'nt act if they had a gun pressed against their foreheads. All they do is curse and shoot each other and acting like cliché'e version of gangsters.The movie doesn't take more than five minutes to explain what is going on before we're already at the warehouse There is not a single sympathetic character in this movie, except for the homeless guy, who is also the only one with half a brain.Bill Paxton and William Sadler are both hill billies and Sadlers character is just as much a villain as the gangsters. I did'nt like him right from the start.The movie is filled with pointless violence and Walter Hills specialty: people falling through windows with glass flying everywhere. There is pretty much no plot and it is a big problem when you root for no-one. Everybody dies, except from Paxton and the homeless guy and everybody get what they deserve.The only two black people that can act is the homeless guy and the junkie but they're actors by profession, not annoying ugly brain dead rappers.Stay away from this crap and watch 48 hours 1 and 2 instead. At lest they have characters you care about, a sense of humor and nothing but real actors in the cast.
