Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You'll jump as if you've had electrodes attached to your sensitive parts; but when your nerve endings stop tingling, your brain won't remember a thing."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Closing on a surprisingly prudish, prosurveillance note, you don't have to wonder if lessons have been learned. Downloaded, maybe. Not learned."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Unfortunately, what starts out as a rounded and intelligent thriller soon turns up the silly for an OTT finale that betrays the tense and well-plotted build-up."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Disturbia is a well-made, very entertaining thriller."
‑ Tony Macklin, Fayetteville Free Weekly
"As a thriller, this is mechanical and predictable - barely one-step away from cookie-cutter formulaic - and yet the film actually works up a decent amount of genuine feeling, thanks to the cast of characters."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"This is a cool little thriller with some big scares and fine performances."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Offsetting the chilly voyeurism is a viable teen romance and an appealing sense of humor. Though there are occasional lapses in logic, Disturbia is consistently suspenseful and entertainingly disturbing."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A feature-length alt-rock-soundtrack shill that merges with violin strains that would make even Bernard Herrmann blanch."
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Phoenix
"In addition to borrowing the idea behind Rear Window, Disturbia pays homage to Hitchcock in its sense of pacing, as well, in its use of the Hitchcock's signature slow build."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"With all the promise to be the year's best teen scream flick, Disturbia gets lost while overly trying to please its demographic."
‑ Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat
"It eventually evolves into a credible thriller, one pointedly rather than coincidentally embedded in the trivia of its time."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"While Disturbia does nothing to advance or honour Hitchcock, the movie succeeds on its modest terms."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"...an unabashedly high-concept premise that's primarily employed to surprisingly positive effect..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Like its attractive leads, director DJ Caruso's smart teen thriller may be self-conscious, but it is undeniably appealing,"
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"Disturbia takes it's time setting up the thrills and Shia LaBeouf actually acts like a high schooler."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
