Samuel Jackson plays the predictable buffoon. He's a much better actor than the character he portrays in this movie. I don't recommend wasting money renting this movie.

Attn: Moviefone You list this movie in Will Smith filmography. Wrong!

Awful, awful, awful. Terrible plot. Sam Jackson's character made absolutely no sense whatsoever. I will never get that time back. Please save your time not to mention your money. Skip this movie!!!

The Hollywood Reporter
The film, absent a sense of place and populated by repellent or weak characters, soon devolves into an increasingly foul litany of events. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A passable piece of hackwork, with some adequately suspenseful passages and a few mild shocks near the end. But the psychological dimensions of the story are so risible, and its supposed insights into race and class so wrongheaded and ugly, that irritation trumps enjoyment. Full Review

Anyone who has ever had an annoying neighbor will see their worst nightmares fulfilled in the overheated but entertaining Lakeview Terrace. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Delivers fairly tense and engrossing drama before succumbing to thriller convention. Full Review

Jackson is the best thing here. Full Review
