Entertaining .

Yes it is predictable.

It is a gripping thriller that makes me a little scared to buy a second hand property!

Surprisingly Entertaining .

This is a predictable run of the mill thriller with questionable acting and characters who are not clever.

Very suspenseful as Dennis Quaid perfectly plays his role and steals the show (not that Meagan Good and Michael Ealy weren't on form either).

Very Predictable.

40% of the film felt like an R&B music video compilation.. Bad acting, really bad soundtrack and very predictable.

Great Dennis but the plot is lame, the woman is idiotic to the point of making the entire movie unwatchable!

Dennis Quaid looked like a 52 year old in prime form; and he was entertaining as he did feats that your average 65 year old grandpa could only dream of doing.

Viewers need to learn to recognize the anti conservative propaganda in movies, if you can successfully recognize and summarily dismiss the idiocy, the stories are entertaining.

It's worth watching.

Suspenseful and exciting movie!

I really enjoyed this movie very thrilling and fast paced dennis quaid's acting was excellent

Their realistic portrayals as troubled spouses (and unsure newlyweds) rise above the otherwise formulaic material.


Overall enjoyable.

Worst Movie of 2019 .

The car hitting scene slow like hell!

Instead of thrilling games of survival in the very house they chose, the last bout is a bit more boasting and brutish combat that ends rather quickly and unimpressively.

It was fun, entertaining and suspenseful!

Everyone did there job to make this a fun and suspenseful movies.

Don't waste your time.

I found every second of The movie very entertaining.. Charlie was an amazing character

With the cheapest of jump scares the film is predictable and unintentionally hilarious.

If you like quaid worth the watch .

Bored to death.

Intruding into new territory, The Intruder Manages To Refresh Things On This Predictable Tale .

Super thrilling~ .

Entertaining summer fluff .

Entertaining enough even with Michael Ealy in it who pretty much acts like he's stoned in all of his bland performances.

This scene also slow like hell!

Very predictable, same story as many others, acting excellent especially form Dennis Quaid, in fact if it wasn't for Dennis Quaid (which reminded me of The Shinning) this film would score much lower.

It was suspenseful!

Thrilling successful with some minor flaws .

Predictable end...

Gripping Thriller .

I definitely recommend this movie to anyone that likes entertaining type movies.

new, the house known as Foxglove holds stunning engineering work that ropes the modern society in, primarily for stunning view, gorgeous décor, and the atmosphere it brings.

It is deliciously flawed, and predictable, but remained entertaining despite knowing that the actions in no way reflect what someone in real life would do.

Beautiful scenery and Dennis Quad in on the mark as a engaging friendly psychopath.

Really bored!

Overall, it's truly a suspenseful film/ drama but in the end an unexpected horror.

Surprisingly Entertaining .

This movie was watchable but very predictable.

Super exciting .

Worth the watch.

The Intruder is about as bland and formulaic as any made for TV Lifetime movie out there.

It was a wonderful thrilling movie!

He always seems like he is teetering on the edge and the littlest things set him off.

I found it to be enjoyable in the ending, but I have to admit, I was pretty bored throughout it.

Suspenseful .

Comparatively, "Coal Creek Manor" winds up being ten times more exciting and entertaining than "The Intruder.

This is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Many reviews say this is the worst movie they have ever seen.

Walking out of the theater, I remember thinking, "This was potentially the worst movie I have ever seen in my life.

There are, for example, several points in the film that test the relationship of said married couple, and a few minutes later, the tension drops immediately, making it feel absolutely pointless.

For some reason the first 15 minutes of this movie are the biggest cliche in movie history.

One of the better suspenseful/thriller movies out there nowadays.

In utilizing the characters, spreading the development over the story and utilizing such a playground, the Intruder is able to make an engaging level of suspense that keeps you into the series, much like a mini-series does.

Don't waste your money, don't waste your time.

Worth watching.

Predictable But Entertaining .

On the one hand, the film is fun (thus my 2 stars), but it is full of new Left propaganda about guns, race, and subtle comments against Conservatives.

The reviews, for some reason, are on the low side but this was actually a pretty enjoyable movie.

very predictable.

Completley predictable story.

Predictable events & ending.

This disparity galls Tokyo--and Sony Pictures, its official propaganda arm--to no end.

Even the idiocy is entertaining when you can see it with realistic perception.

Slow like hell!

Entertaining .

The film was pretty intense throughout and a spooky atmosphere!

Its a truly tame PG-13 affair and I guess its a low key time before the month gets super intense with what's to come in film.

The plot was intriguing, kept me interested as it unfolded, we got to see Charlie's intent with selling and staying at the house.

The reason why I dropped the rating was because it was a classic boring ending and yeah what a surprise the bad guy died at the end.

its just pretty entertaining.

Boring .

But it still was entertaining, has one twist you won't see coming a mile away.

I was expecting it to be status-quo, but once it got going it kept me on the edge of my seat.

There's a few laughs in there but it still maintains the suspenseful vibe it's suppose to.

Quite enjoyable and really doesn't go where you think it will at times (7/10)Violence: Yes.

Good actors as well I agree that it was quite predictable but worth watching anyway

The filmmakers turn Charlie into a leering psycho and the ultimate confrontation is drawn out while Annie fears that Scott is relapsing into marital infidelity.

Way too predictable to be enjoyable.

This is one of the worst movies I have seen in a while.

It was incredibly predictable, the humor was terrible.

A gripping thriller .

This movie was surprisingly more entertaining that expected.

It was like to fulfil the cliche 'this and that ' had to be in the movie , so they dumped it in!

Quaid was predictable, and that's because Good and Ealy played the dumbest roles as homeowners dealing with a stalker who invaded there space at every turn and did absolutely nothing about it until the very end.

Don't waste your time.

I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.

The film was pretty basic, cringe at times and utterly predictable with a horrific script.

There was nothing scary, terrifying or suspenseful in this story line.

The direction and script is predictable and decent.

Edge of my seat exciting.

Predictable .

This movie was completely predictable and had no originality.

This movie is the worst movie I have watched all year.

The director's cliche formula is really his own projecting of ridiculous agenda filled perpetuating of multicultural tensions blown out of proportion.

Enjoyable Saturday night movie .

Enjoyable and well done .

There's also a sub-plot involving the male lead who is against gun use, which is hardly foused on, which also makes it feel pointless up until the climax.

Extremely predictable I have no idea why the good reviews or I mean glowing reviews?!!?

Intense Thriller .

Humorous yet suspenseful thriller .

Despite its predictability, it is entertaining and I did not find myself bored at any point.

It was a decent watch and an exciting plot quite close to real life where people find it difficult to part with their belongings at times.

I would never see this movie again, and it was a waste of $11, and nearly two hours of my time.

It is gripping and keeps me on the edge of my seat most of the time.

Then came the long, tired story line that was filled with silliness and predictable cliches.

It's much creepier when an actor is silent and works with his eyes and slow movements, instead of overplaying the role.

To sum up like everyone else is saying it was predictable but entertaining enough and great direction.


This film goes for the cheap pops and predictable thrills.

Yet, the full potential of the characters was not quite reached for this reviewer, falling victim to predictable plots, time restraints, and an ending that again is cliché and more attuned to those wanting to lead with their hearts than heads.

A good, entertaining, interesting movie.

Waste of money.

DISLIKES:Predictable Trailers ruin much So Much More Potential Some Character balancing Not the Most Intense ending Still Idiotic DecisionsSUMMARY: Despite the good this movie accomplished, it still falls victim to some of the trademarks that come with the Soap Opera like approach.

Surprisingly entertaining.

Cheesy and predictable from start to finish.

The film is pretty fun and has very intense moments that will build anxiety.


The movie is both thrilling and filled with suspense, which is what I expect from it.

The wife finds his story of losing his wife endearing, yet every other person on the planet in screaming 'get off my land', this proceeds far too long and frankly for a smart lady, she lacks the common sense of a teenage girl.

This seemed like cheesy good thrilling fun.

I ended up rooting for the bad guy and the movie is predictable, the lead characters are annoying and dumb.

It's predictable, with many of the "surprising" components deduced a mile away based on the cliché plot points they love to tell.

If you're looking for a thrilling suspenseful creepy and lustful piece of art to begin your date night, The Intruder is the perfect film for you.

Meagan Good is well good at her work taking a common role and in some ways refreshing it to make it interesting, engaging and compassionate that you feel for the character.


But story was a little slow and overdone.

Although The Intruder was predictable, I still enjoyed it and I have definitely watched far worse titles!

One of the worst movies I've seen in my life .

Kept me on the edge of my seat.

Then it became a cliche and very predictable .

Just as the review title says, way too predictable to be enjoyable.
