Greed makes people unlucky

Johnny (Josh Stewart) works as a middle man for his drug dealing uncle (Ronnie Gene Blevins) living in the outskirts of Cutter, Mississippi with his girlfriend Rosie (Alex Essoe). Troy (Bill Engvall) is his sole neighbor. Johnny and Rosie have made secret plans to leave town. Troy hints that he knows Johnny's business and has secrets of his own...and he does. After 50 minutes of character introduction we finally get into the meat of the film which is your basic abduction film...captured, escape, repeat.

The movie opens with grainy film during the credits, which was clever considering the occupation of Troy which is kept secret for much of the feature. We are made to identify with Johnny the likable drug dealer as our protagonist, while a profile of Troy during this period would have been far more interesting. It is just about impossible to sneak around inside a small farmhouse that has three people in it...just saying. Decent soundtrack and acting.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Well-done thriller!

This is a very well-done thriller, that got a lower rating than I think it deserves. Fine plot, good acting and great cinematography (minus the strange intro), all contribute to a great film. Just ignore the mediocre ratings, and rent this one. I was surprised at how fine a film this was. You'll be surprised too!

Well-known story

In "The Neighbor", a young couple involved in dealing drugs notices the rather strange behavior of their new neighbor, who seems to hide some secrets on his wide-spread farm. When they begin to investigate, things soon take a turn to the worse as they find themselves trapped in a net of violence and domination.

As you may have already noticed, this movie had some prominent role models. In fact, in many aspects it is just another shot at the same plot that "Disturbia" already remodelled. So this will clearly not win any award for creativity or innovation. This said, the film actually delivers a very solid performance. It creates a lot of tension, it makes you feel uneasy and it does make you cheer for the lead characters. At some points in my eyes it wanted a bit too much, some of the aspects are never fully explained or seem rather implausible, but all in all since the movie doesn't try to be something it isn't, that's not something too bad. I wouldn't say that it is the best shot at this story, but it takes it over without bigger mistakes.

All in all if you see this as a thriller, there's really not much to complain about. It isn't creative and it's far from being deep, but as pure entertainment it works quite well.
