What the Critics say

Roger Ebert I find movies like this alive and provoking, and I'm exhilarated to have my thinking challenged at every step of the way.
Jason Anderson The movie does inspire the hope that more studio thrillers will take a wider view of the world.
James Berardinelli It's too bad the movie's moderately intriguing qualities are buried under the final half-hour's avalanche of predictability.
Peter Travers The main problem with this treatise on racial politics undercover as an exercise in suspense is that the director, Neil LaBute, didn't write the script.
C. Fuchs Fortunately, and unlike a bad neighbor, one can easily move away from this busy but far too familiar member of the cinematic community not long after being introduced to it.
Tomatometer This thriller about a menacing cop wreaking havoc on his neighbors is tense enough but threatens absurdity when it enters into excessive potboiler territory.
