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

Enjoyable .

Surprisingly entertaining.

The IntruderOverall this was a well scripted, well acted thriller, Denis Quaid was brilliantly menacing and overall it was most enjoyable.

Predictable events & ending.

I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.

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.

A gripping thriller .

This movie was completely predictable and had no originality.

This seemed like cheesy good thrilling fun.

But I found it to be very entertaining, the characters were believable and I was on the edge of my seat throughout.

Predictable end...

The film is very exciting..and entertaining.. ....

This movie was surprisingly more entertaining that expected.

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

Very Predictable.

Very predictable, the cast is lame, the storyline is weak, and the plot sucked.

Don't waste your time.

It was fun, entertaining and suspenseful!

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

Predictable?

Yes it is predictable.

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

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

Predictable .

It was a wonderful thrilling movie!

Further into the movie you begin to realize it's your common annoying and predictable movie.

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

Then it became a cliche and very predictable .

Humorous yet suspenseful thriller .

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

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

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.

Enjoyable.

This movie was never going to set the world on fire, but it's something to look at and is entertaining enough.

Like a boring retread .

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

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

This is just a waste of your time.

Entertaining summer fluff .

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.

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

"The Intruder" lives up to its billing with some surefire suspenseful moments and high tension.

Cheesy and predictable from start to finish.

Too predictable .

Suspenseful and exciting movie!

The film was pretty intense throughout and a spooky atmosphere!

Worst Movie Of The Year So Far .

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

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

Kept me on the edge of my seat.

This film goes for the cheap pops and predictable thrills.

Worth watching.

Decent film Dennis was good reallly enjoyed it suspense and thriller

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

Way too predictable to be enjoyable.

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

The ending is quite exciting.

It was suspenseful!

All in all I enjoyed it even if it was cliche.

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

Entertaining .

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

Surprisingly Entertaining .

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.

The car hitting scene slow like hell!

This movie is too predictable .

Enjoyable Saturday night movie .

Waste of Time .

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.

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

Overall enjoyable.

its just pretty entertaining.

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

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

Propaganda.

Very predictable, slow and full of unlogical moments .

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

Starts off ok but soon becomes very boring and even annoying to watch.

The soundtrack belongs on a step up film, the acting is diabolical, the story is boring, the characters are annoying and the entire overall film is just a waste of time.

The direction and script is predictable and decent.

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

I enjoyed it.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Entertaining .

Too predictable .

This is pretty entertaining!

This movie was super entertaining.

Super exciting .

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

Cliché?

Worst Movie of 2019 .

I found the movie enjoyable.

This scene also slow like hell!

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

Gripping Thriller .

Thrilling.

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

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

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.

Waste of money.

Smacks of cliche .

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.

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

Super thrilling~ .

Entertaining to say the least.

Predictable But Entertaining .

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

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

Intense Thriller .

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

Waste 2 hours of your life here.

Bored to death.

The film is predictable in it's story line and it's attempts to jump scare.

A good, entertaining, interesting movie.

It was incredibly predictable, the humor was terrible.

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

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

It is a very predictable and formulaic genre-piece which doesn't have the needed twist in it to separate itself from the flock.

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

Joe Sikora was still channeling his "Wild A$$ Tommy" role from "POWER" (boring) ...

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

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).

Surprisingly Entertaining .

This movie was watchable but very predictable.

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.

very predictable.

"The Intruder" is a predictable thriller full of clichés.

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.

Had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish!

Enjoyable and well done .

Predictable and Full of Clichés .

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.

Being a fan a of the show Power and what Sikora brings to the character of Tommy Egan, I thought Sikora brought just enough of Egan into his character of Mike that it was really well done and intriguing.

Completley predictable story.

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

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

The whole thing smacks of cliche and builds up to the most typical climax you'll ever see coming.

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

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

Worth watching.

Don't waste your time.

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

Thrilling successful with some minor flaws .

Suspenseful .

Really bored!

I enjoyed it, better than some I've seen in this genre of movies lately.

It became more entertaining as it went on.

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

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.

If you like quaid worth the watch .

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.

They were quite bland, and lacking in screen presence.

Boring, pointless story .

Boring .

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

Edge of my seat exciting.

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

But story was a little slow and overdone.

That is a little value but mostly it's a tiresome waiting game.

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

It's worth watching.

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.

Worth the watch if you are bored.

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

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.

Everything is predictable.

Slow like hell!

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

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

Worth the watch.

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

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

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

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

There were funny moments, intense moments, and light-weight scary moments, The writers wrote a typical suspense thriller where the wife doesn't believe the evidence until it's too late.

GENERIC AND PREDICTABLE.

Good but predictable thriller .

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.

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.
