Product Description

Product Description

What happens when a man with everything a beautiful wife (Nicole Kidman), a teenage daughter (Liana Liberato) and a wealthy estate is confronted with the reality of losing it all? That is what Kyle Miller (Nicolas Cage) must come to terms with as he and his family become the victims of a vicious home invasion. Led by Elias (Ben Mendelsohn) and Jonah (Cam Gigandet), a gang of cold-blooded thugs holds Kyle and his loved ones hostage as they carry out their plans to take everything that Kyle holds dear, including his life.

Kyle and Sarah Miller (Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman) are minding their own business, enjoying the fruits of his lavish success as a diamond salesman. Well, maybe not "enjoying"--there are hints this marriage isn't exactly fulfilling either spouse. Out of the blue, a gang of jewel thieves arrive to take the couple hostage, find the loot, and threaten their teenage daughter (Liana Liberato) in the bargain. And with that setup, Trespass is off and running for 90 minutes of pretty-near nonstop crazy-time, as the thieves begin to unravel and motor-mouth Kyle tries to talk them out of whatever latest strategy they attempt. When you learn that the film is directed by Joel (Batman & Robin) Schumacher, you may assume that the tone will be lurid, and it is. But darned if Schumacher doesn't manage to make a guilty-pleasure sort of experience out of the hothouse dialogue and rampant overplaying; if this movie had been produced on a low budget with unknown actors, it would probably be hailed as a B-movie sleeper. Cage overdoes the nerd factor, but Kidman manages to find some eerie moments (and cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak sure knows how to photograph her). Adding value is the chief hostage-taker, Ben Mendelsohn, whose sinister performance in Animal Planet marked him as a villain to watch; here, he memorably tries to keep it together as he juggles his fragile brother (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-happy henchman (Dash Mihok), and a strung-out girlfriend (Jordana Spiro). For the record, the absurd plot turns are almost impossible to defend, but the movie hurtles along so insanely you may not have time to care. --Robert Horton --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
I was excited when I picked this up. Read the description on the back of the dvd and it sounded great. Thats where it ended. Thirty minutes or so into the movie was good but the story never developed from there. Too simple. No twists. The back of the box describes "dark secrets","terror at your doorstep", but I could not find any in the movie. Overall such a disapointment.

By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 5 2013
Format: DVD
Trespass(released Sept/11)was directed by Joel Schumacher and stars,among others Nicolas Cage as Kyle Miller and Nicole Kidman as Sarah Miller.It is a film with alot of promise,as Cage is quite convincing in his role,as is Kidman,but as the film rolls on it becomes just another average watch,typical of its type.
The story finds Cage as a diamond buyer/seller.As he rolls home to see his wife and daughter whom he hasn't seen in a few days,he is on the phone to a potential client for whom he must dash out later to clinch a deal.After a fairly brief stay he is going out when the "police" show up at his gate wanting to see them about burglaries in the area.When they open the door three men and a woman burst in and the game is on;they're there to steal his stash of diamonds and/or cash.
As the heist progresses we learn that one of the burglars has more than a passing interest in his wife and in fact was in the house posing as an electrician of sorts and casing the joint.While they think they know Cage's m.o.,it eventually comes out that Cage is in fact broke.He lost his permanent job and has been just eking by with little sales now and again which barely keeps their heads above water.After much torture and threats Cage finally opens the safe to them and nothing is in there.By this time the group are starting to get antsy and time is running out,as it seems one of them owes their boss almost $200,000 from drugs that were stolen off of him.
The end of the film comes down to a confrontation in the still under construction part of their new house.A well placed scuffle later and a hidden wall is opened which reveals a huge amount of cash Cage hid,so if the bank repossessed the house they would have at least something.

Nicolas Cage, as perfect as usual, even with horrible glasses ! The thriller is well made, i think it's pretty hard to make a real time movie, kind of like 24 the TV show, but schumacher had already prooved with Phone Booth he was capable of such a miracle. The job is done again for Trespass, although unlike 24, it is not about saving the world here, but just saving your world : your family.

A Generic, By-the-Numbers Home Invasion Movie Oct. 17 2011
By Joshua Miller - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Trespass was doomed from the beginning. Set to play the antagonist, Nicolas Cage walked off the set only to return a few days later to play the protagonist. The studio, showing little faith in the finished product, opted to give the film a limited release in theatres with a release to video-on-demand the same day and, to top it all off, set a home video release date before it even hit theatres and VOD. It doesn't help that the film reunites one of Hollywood's most misunderstood actors with director Joel Schumacher, who still can't escape the wrath of film critics and audiences for directing Batman & Robin. Trespass is another home invasion movie; a sub-genre that has been done very well (Panic Room) and has been done decently (Hostage). It is neither Cage nor Schumacher that is to blame for how this film turned out, but screenwriter Karl Gajdusek, whose only previous credits include episodes of the television show Dead Like Me. The idea and execution is derivative of home invasion movies that came before it and offers nothing new or exciting to the premise. Everything is by-the-numbers, full of clichés and idiotic plot twists, resulting in a predictable climax. Even worse, Trespass has stupid criminals and stupid victims making it hard to root for either one. With a brisk 90-minute running time it doesn't waste time jumping into the core of the plot though.

Nicolas Cage plays Kyle Miller, a diamond dealer who lives in a lavish isolated mansion with his wife Sarah (Nicole Kidman) and daughter Avery (Liana Liberato). Soon after Kyle arrives home, Avery has snuck out of the house to attend a party in an attempt to set up the suspense that she'll return when everything goes awry. Only 12 minutes in, the Miller home has been invaded by four criminals. The apparent ringleader (Ben Mendelsohn) wants Kyle to open his safe, which is believed to contain hundreds of thousands worth of diamonds and cash. The criminals plan to be in and out of the house in twenty minutes, but matters grow difficult when Kyle stubbornly refuses to bend to their will. Meanwhile, Sarah notices something familiar about one of the criminals (Cam Gigandet) while the emotionally unstable female of the group simply wanders around the house.

Trespass is 90 minutes of "open the safe," "I refuse" dialogue and overacting, the latter of which makes the film a bit more tolerable than it should've been. There's not much suspense because you can see it coming a mile away and when the illogical plot twist is thrown in all you can do is roll your eyes. Joel Schumacher has directed his share of great, average, and bad films and even if you look at the ones that linger somewhere between bad and average, he's a competent director that knows how to maintain suspense when necessary. Unfortunately, it never occurred to him or the two Academy Award winning actors leading the cast to demand a rewrite of the script. The set-up and execution is so generic that I can't believe anyone involved took part for anything other than money. Cage has done little to keep secret that he's not opposed to renting himself out if the fee is right. With such poor characterization and stilted dialogue, credit must be given to the actors for not sleepwalking through their roles. Mendelsohn brings to mind a young Gary Oldman, but anyone familiar with Cage's filmography will admit that Trespass may have been a better film if he had played Mendelsohn's role. Kidman brings nothing noteworthy to the role of Sarah, but there's nothing noteworthy about the character. Liberato is playing the typical daughter, who just wants to rebel against her parents and go to a party. The role is thankless, but the actress may actually have some talent that could be put to better use in a better movie.

Thankfully Cage is always reliable to make something entertain if all else fails and his performance doesn't disappoint. Cage has a tendency to go so over-the-top in bad movies that it's like he's satirizing the ridiculousness of everything; this tendency is often mistaken for bad acting. If you watch Deadfall or The Wicker Man, it becomes apparent that Cage is totally self-aware of the ridiculousness of what he's doing. Cage overacts in Trespass but handles the material more seriously than usual. His performance is fun to watch as he doesn't play it straight (he's attached a barely noticeable accent and plays Kyle in a very pathetic manner), but it doesn't save the film or add enough to boost it to cult "so-bad-its-good" status. Few actors play perpetually on edge as well as Cage does and he makes the film marginally better.

Trespass is not offensively bad; it's not a film that anyone will kick themselves over wasting 90 minutes of their life on. It's just a forgettable thriller that is so derivative of other films in the genre you may confuse plot elements of other films with this one. It's not an insult to the intelligence of the people watching it, but an insult to the intelligence of those involved. It's never boring, but it fails to create any plausible suspense and lacks the substance necessary to recommend it. It's not that better home invasion films have come before it; if this were the first, it would remain a mediocre effort.

Worse than Nicole Kidmans new lip job Oct. 20 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
Wow what a horrible cliched film. How many breaking and entering movies have you seen just in the last five years or more? Firewall(which was great), Hostage, The Strangers, Panic Room (great), Funny Games, and the list goes on. This movies is basically a parody of itself. The F word flies around like a swarm of locusts, killing any chance of any kid of meaningful, creative dialogue. And a premise? Wow, breaking into someones house who really has no money, seriously? I don't think Joel Shulmaker has really made any "stellar" films, but he is (was) a decent director. Why big stars like Cage and Kidman are in such a hideous picture, basically straight to DVD, is beyond me. I just hope a lot of these stars aren't getting the Cuba Gooding Jr syndrome. It seems a lot of older actors are being pushed into crappy straight to DVD films these days. And some good ones as well, but few. All this movie does is really irritate the viewer, other than the foul language there is not a quiet moment, or emotional one in the whole film. Everyone rants around like they forgot to take there meds, just screaming and yelling at each other till you get a headache and say ok enough. Don't just kill the hostages, just kill everyone in the movie! This is definitely Cages worst performance, although he has had a few bad ones in the past. He actually uses words like $$#thole and A##F%$k, real great dialogue there. Also he whines like a little girl through most of the film, trying to fend off the bad dudes, but the girls overpower him and end up kicking more tail than he does. He mainly lays on the ground bleeding and/or crying or both.

So sorry it contains spoilers, not that anyone is "dying" to see this film, but it's really as bad as the critics and audience says it is. Which usually might or not be true. In this case it's painfully true, don't let this movie "trespass" into your movie collection. The other blu rays will skoot off the shelve just to avoid it. I think you should too. Later. :)

P.S I didn't notice Kidman had her lips redone until i saw a picture on wikipedia, then in this movie. COME ON NICOLE, your 44, and are(were?) hot.

Take a good look.... Jan. 11 2012
By Pikminfan - Published on
Format: DVD
This is what a truly awful movie looks like:

"Give me the diamonds."
"Give me the money."
"Pretty please?"
"I'll shoot her."
"Okay then, I'll shoot the other one."
"Okay then I'll stab you with this here syringe I just happened to bring with me on this break in."
"A[...] Come on. Pretty, pretty please?"

Of course this is all followed by and preceded by lots of screaming, yelling, f-bomb dropping & over acting.
That pretty much sums up the whole "Trespass" experience. I just saved you and hour and a half....

The world's dumbest criminals caught on film! Oct. 14 2011
By Cameron Chase - Published on
Verified Purchase
The first half of the movie runs tight and suspenseful. But the trick with these kinds of movies is that once the hostages escape, the movie is pretty much over. This leads to some pretty lame developments which I won't reveal. But here's a hint: You know those horror movies where the victim escapes the attacker and runs upstairs instead of downstairs? It's kind of like that. It's like an episode of The World's Dumbest Criminals or The World's Dumbest Hostages. The ending somehow doesn't feel satisfying, because everything that comes before it just gets lamer and lamer. It is well-filmed and directed, though. I give three stars for Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, and the daughter who looks like a young Sasha Grey. And I will continue to support these first releases on streaming video, mainly because I'm too lazy to get dressed and drive to a sticky movie theater with people chomping on popcorn and slurping up soft drinks out of livestock buckets.

It's all action, baby! Sept. 28 2011
By Amanda J. Feuerman - Published on
Format: DVD
You can't really go wrong with TWO Academy Award winning actors and my new favorite hottie, Cam Gigandet. And don't overlook Dash Mihok -- he's one of my FAVORITE character actors and he's bad-ass in this (seriously, IMDB this guy - he's been in EVERYTHING). It's fantastic seat-gripping action from beginning to end. It's a blast.
