Back in May, a film came out called The Intruder, and I skipped watching it. You see, the trailer to the movie basically showed everything that I needed to see, including a big chunk of the third act so I was not sure why I needed to see it. So, despite a couple of times when I thought about going to The Intruder, I decided to let it pass by.
Then today I found it for $0.99 on Vudu and I thought that that was a price that I could not turn down. Certainly, it would be worth $0.99, right?
Well, it wasn’t quite worth the $0.99.
Dennis Quaid played Charlie Peck, a widower who sold his beloved house to Scott and Annie played by Michael Ealy and Meagan Good. At first, it appeared that Charlie was just having a difficult time parting with the house that he had spent so many years in, but then it became obvious that he was mentally unhinged and wanted to have Annie for himself to the point of attacking her and trying to keep her against her will.
You say that is too much detail and that I may have spoiled too much. Well, you’d be right, but that was what the trailers had in it so it is fair game.
There are some really dumb scenes in this predictable film. It takes Annie way too long to accept the fact that Charlie is a loon because she was too busy getting mad at Scott for stupid things.
It seems that Dennis Quaid is having fun hamming it up as this coo-coo but he does not have near enough energy to make up for this film.
I am not unhappy I watched it, and I am glad that I did not spend the full cost on it.
