Fast Facts

Title: Trespass Director: Joel Schumacher Year: 2011 Run time: 1hr 31

Background Info

Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman are both pretty big stars, so we thought this would be worth checking out. Never hurts to watch a bit of an action movie, and clocking in at just about 90 minutes made it even more appealing to me!

0:36 - That looks lovely and green. Mmm, forests. 3:05 - I can’t see Nicole and Nicholas as a couple. 4:00 - I want their house. 5:06 - Safe pass code is 5578. 7:13 - I feel as though she may have escaped that way before. 9:30 - They have zero chemistry. Although maybe they are just meant to be acting that way. 14:14 - It can’t be that odd to not have a cellphone on you. I don’t carry mine with me around the house. 16:00 - A fake code that acts real but calls the police is genius! 25:45 - The bandits, they are falling apart a little bit. 26:04 - Are they aware that one of their party is just getting stoned and watching TV? 27:27 - And trying on other people’s clothes! 30:32 - He has a nice smile. 33:48 - Seems as though the brother was more keen than she was. Why blame her? 34:40 - She’s smarter than she looks. 37:30 - The burglar has a sob story. 40:57 - “We never owned this house, it owned us.” 43:51 - The burglar made up his sob story. 48:11 - This family seem awfully good at pick pocketing. 51:35 - They even have an endless pool! No wonder all their money is tied up in there. 53:50 - At some point, the burglars will have to admit there is no money to be had! 54:59 - Wow, that alarm system gives the police a lot of detail! Which window is broken and everything. 1:00:20 - She’s still not convinced, that police woman. 1:02:11 - Is this another lying sob story? It sounds more believable. 1:02:54 - “It’s really bad mojo to kill a taxman.” 1:10:22 - Who calls themselves a cuckold? 1:17:09 - The bandits are definitely falling apart. 1:19:28 - “Man, you could have saved us all a lot of aggravation.” 1:22:34 - Nail guns just seem like a bad idea all round. 1:25:08 - Will they get into trouble for killing people?

Conclusions

I think it’s fascinating that this film made only about $25k in the box office and was yanked after 10 days. It broke records with the speed it went to DVD - 18 days. I mean, it wasn’t great, I will admit to that. A lot of shrieking, some pretty unbelievable villains, but an okay premise and a plot that wound its way towards the end through some medium-level twists and turns. It wasn’t my favourite film of the year, I agree, but I have seen an awful lot worse!
