    This movie is incredibly stupid in Abel's motivations make no sense. He claims his kids are his number 1 priority and then goes to great lengths to kill the neighbors? Now they are fatherless! That makes no sense. And if Abel is this crazy about interrelationships do you really think he would have made it 28 years in the force being this dirty?

    The acting sucks. Nothing actually
    happens in the movie but Samuel L Jackson making everyone involved uncomfortable, including the viewers. Expand

    The film, absent a sense of place and populated by repellent or weak characters, soon devolves into an increasingly foul litany of events.

    Delivers fairly tense and engrossing drama before succumbing to thriller convention.

    It's a shame, then, that the later stages of Lakeview Terrace should overheat and spill into silliness. The plot is compromised, not resolved, by the pulling of a gun.
