ReelViews for 'Thriller' movies
It reminds us that female-centered gangster movies can be just as generic and forgettable as those featuring male characters.
One of the most popular, widely-loved films to win Best Picture in the last half-century and an example of grand entertainment.
Its approach and style contrast markedly with the artificiality and lack of ingenuity that has infected the genre over the years.
A lackluster, hard-to-swallow police procedural with soap opera-ish subplots and flat characters.
It’s creepy and suspenseful and, although the last act goes on auto-pilot, the film offers a better-than-average experience for those who like their psychopaths unhinged.

The problem with "The Intruder," as with its antecedents, is a combination of narrative predictability and character stupidity.
Despite the occasionally uneven pacing and some dramatically inert moments, the historical elements mesh effectively with the fictionalized action-oriented ones.
