4.0 out of 5 stars intense and suspenseful July 28 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i enjoyed this movie.it has suspense drama and some action.without revealing too much,the basic premise is that due to a family tragedy teen aged Ruby Baker(Leelee Sobieski) and her younger brother Rhett(Trevor Morgan) end up in the guardianship of Terry and Ellen Glass(Stellan Skarsgard and Diane Lane)wealthy,old family friends,.unfortunately for them things are not as they appear.what follows is just over 100 minutes of tension and suspense along with a few action sequences.while this movie doesn't have the same kind of adrenaline rush as "Joy Ride"which also starred Leelee Sobieski,it does have it's moments.but this movie is more of a gradual(but not too gradual")tension and suspense builder.there are also some surprising and maybe not so surprising revelations.the movie takes some interesting twists and is is not always predictable.i also felt that the quieter,more dramatic moments were done well. i thought the characters were interesting and the acting was good. you can real feel the fear and sense of jeopardy Ruby and Rhett have.the movie may not have been completely realistic,but then, how exciting would that have been?i'm guessing not very.for me "The Glass House" is a 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing, intense psychological thriller Aug. 24 2003
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
After an impressive number of supporting movie roles, the lovely Leelee Sobieski takes center stage in this impressive psychological thriller, delivering a performance I found both wonderful and, most importantly, believable. While the plot may not be all that original and unpredictable, I found The Glass House to be an absorbing, suspenseful movie that never relented in its building psychological intensity. Anyone who sets out to hurt a character played by Leelee gets my full attention and disdain, but the evil husband and wife responsible for all the villainy espoused in this film do an excellent job of deserving all the disgust I felt for them.
While Miss Sobieski looks a tad older than the sweet sixteen age of her character Ruby Baker, her natural sweetness and vulnerability make her quite convincing as a normal young teenager whose life is thrown into chaos when her parents are killed in an automobile accident. Ruby and her eleven-year-old brother Rhett (Trevor Morgan) go to live with Terry and Erin Glass (played quite impressively by Stellan Skarsgard and Diane Lane), their former neighbors and designated custodians. Their new home is an impressive, unique structure with many glass walls and an ultra-modern interior design. Rhett settles in quite well, but Ruby is uncomfortable from the start. Early on, she realizes that the Glasses are not the perfect couple they purport to be. At first, she attempts to rationalize her problems, ascribing her difficulty adjusting to her new life as a natural reaction to her grief over the loss of her parents and the social dislocation she feels upon moving to a new city and attending a new school. Little things continue to happen, however, and she soon finds herself seeking help from her parents' estate lawyer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie: 4/5, DVD: 2/5, Average: 3/5. Oct. 21 2002

THE GLASS HOUSE
THE MOVIE: An underrated thrill ride! I expected THE GLASS HOUSE to be a pretty silly movie as the opinions of the majority of critics were that. I'll have to be different this time and say I highly enjoyed this nicely done thriller. It has some clichéd/contrived moments and a couple of plot holes, and it could've done without the Stellan Skarsgaard-business-deal-going-wrong idea but the visuals in this movie are outstanding, with many shots suggesting something may be lurking or watching. I loved how the movie kept you in suspense the whole way through and keeps you guessing. All around a well-directed and misunderstood chiller.
THE SPECIAL FEATURES: This could've been a lot better. We get great commentary from the writer and the director who help you to understand the ideas behind the shots, angles etc. There are 2 trailers, one for this film and one for URBAN LEGEND. We also get cast and crew filmographies and one deleted scene. There could've been heaps more deleted scenes because during the movie the director says things like "this scene was actually after a scene we deleted" and there is heaps of unused footage that you see in the trailer. That really ticked me off. What's up with just giving us ONE? Grr.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining if predictable Oct. 20 2002
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"The Glass House" is pretty much standard thriller fare, with outstanding acting and very good direction. Problem? The plotline is a hodgepodge of the obvious and the everyday. And white bread, even when photographed from interesting angles, is still white bread.
Ruby Baker (Leelee Sobieski) lives an ordinary well-to-do teen life: She goes to a private school, has a pesky little brother, and sneaks out and smokes by way of rebellion. All that shatters when her parents are killed in a tragic car accident, leaving her and brother Rhett (Trevor Morgan) alone. Their new guardians are old family friends, Terry and Erin Glass (Stellan Skarsgård and Diane Lane), who couldn't be more sympathetic to the orphans. At first.
In their new Malibu home, the kids are given all they could want... except the two kids have to share a bedroom in the glass-walled mansion, and aren't allowed to go anywhere alone. Ruby finds Erin shooting up, and sees a pair of sinister men slamming Terry against a wall. Further investigation leads her to believe that the Glasses murdered her parents -- and for some reason, they want the four million dollars that the Bakers left their children. As Ruby comes closer to the truth, she finds that Terry will do anything -- even murder again -- to keep the kids under his control.
Perhaps the biggest problem with "Glass House" was that I could predict everything that would happen within the first ten minutes. The happy life, the unseen car accident, the kindly uncle tripping over his feet to help the kids, and the Glass couple who are so sympathetic they help a sobbing Rhett with his eulogy. You can predict how everything is going to turn out almost instantly. Perhaps the most unpredictable moment is the opener, where we see a scantily-clad, shrieking blonde flee a masked killer.

I thought this film would be like Hand That Rocks The Cradle. Obviously it was just a reason to give LeeLee a starring role. The best actors are the insane couple. Read more

Ah yes, Leelee Sobieski...what can I say? A poor man's Helen Hunt in an even poorer film. Skip it. Better yet, hopscotch it.
