I found “Disturbia” to be a suspenseful story. It wasn’t difficult to figure out who the villain was, but he was so good at covering up his murders, I wondered whether or not he would ever get caught. I won’t give that away but this story will appeal to those who enjoy watching a murder mystery and for young adults who are into junk food, the opposite sex, and messy rooms. This is definitely not a movie for families to watch together, due to some mature themes such as violence and partial nudity, as well as some strong language. A character punches his teacher and a girl lies to her mother about where she is at. She happens to be at a boy’s house but tells her mother on her cell phone that she is at Barnes and Noble. The acting was pretty good and the villain is believable. This was a better film than some I have seen in this genre.
However, “Disturbia” is a bit disturbing due to the violence and excessive language and we cannot award this film our Dove Seal.
