    Juliet (Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby), a beautiful doctor, has found the perfect New York apartment to start a new life after separating from her husband. It's got spacious rooms, a spectacular view, and a handy, handsome landlord. But there are secrets behind every wall and terror in every room as Juliet gets the unnerving feeling that she is not alone. She is being watched. She is being stalked. And no one is safe when she discovers the relentless horror on her doorstep. But how do you stop an evil that you can't see...until it's too late? Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey's Anatomy) and screen legend Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings) costar in this pulse-pounding shocker from famed horror studio Hammer Films (Let Me In).

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Film You Want To Love.... March 20, 2011
    Format:DVD
    THE RESIDENT is one of those very well made (directed by Antii Jokinen), well photographed (cinematographer Guillermo Navarro), well scored (music by John Ottman), well cast films that just doesn't manage to get off the ground. The idea for the film is OK but the script written by Robert Orr and director Jokinen is so slim that the film could have been a successful short: everything you need to know is in the trailer. A thriller it is not, but the people in the film are so attractive that much is forgivable.

    Hard working ER Doctor/Surgeon Juliet Devereau (Hilary Swank - who also is executive producer here) is bruised by a broken relationship: Jack (Lee Pace, well remembered for his role in 'A Soldier's Girl') betrayed their relationship. Juliet needs a change and looks for an apartment in New York City, eventually finding an affordable gorgeous space being renovated by owner Max (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, handsome and charismatic). Max is strange but pleasant and goes out of his way to please Juliet. Max lives in the apartment house as does his grandfather August (Christopher Lee), and when the emotionally vulnerable Juliet is attracted to Max, Max is the one who shuts down. But the chemistry has begun and Max spies on Juliet, stalking her, making videos of her in bath, obsessing over her etc. Juliet meanwhile reconnects with Jack, a fact that motivates Max to change the direction of his approach to Juliet. What follows is a series of strange incidents that the audience will know about ahead of time and the ending just sort of happens - without much suspense or caring from the viewer.

    Swank is up to par in her professionalism and both Morgan and Pace are interesting to watch. The film has some nice effects and the cast is attractive and maybe that is enough for a no-brainer film. Pleasant but non-involving. Grady Harp, March 11

    1.0 out of 5 stars Let me do a favor and spoil this for you. May 14, 2011
    Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Normally I don't try to reveal spoilers on my book and DVD reviews but I owe a favor to anyone who might consider renting, buying or viewing this horrible piece of movie making (and calling it movie making is an exaggeration).
    Hilary Swank, an Oscar winning actress had taken quite a career tumble as she portrays an emergency room doctor seeking an apartment in NYC. She comes across a huge apartment at a bargain rate. (Warning one-If you get an amazing bargain in NYC, something bad is about to happen!)
    She rents the apartment from Jeffery Dean Morgan (who I wail always remember as "dead Denny" in Gray's Anatomy which spoiled that entire series for me forever) is the landlord and as the viewer finds out early in the movie he is a combination stalker/pervert/peeping tom/sex addict/psycho/killer who spends more time sneaking around Hilary's apartment than she does. He also has multiple viewing areas into the apartment which allow him to view Swank at his leisure. He can watch her as she bathes, cooks, sleeps and drinks. (which is part of her problem. ER doctors need to be careful about drinking too much)
    Christopher Lee is totally wasted in his role as the grandfather of Morgan who starts off as a spooky old man and ends up as a dead one.
    Lee Pace is Swank's ex boyfriend who manages to rekindle his romance with her and anyone who has ever seen a suspense cum horror film knows what happens to that kind of person. No surprise here.
    The last 20 minutes of this film is tediously filled with Swank taking down her landlord in a knock down drag out ridiculous physical battle and him rising again like Michael Myers in the Halloween films.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing Performances by Two Beautiful People April 16, 2011
    Format:DVD
    The first three-quarters of this film are suspenseful and somewhat innovative. "The Resident" attempts a sort of Rashomon-like recursion from different points of view.

    First we see life from Hilary Swank's character's point of view. She's a busy ER Doctor who responds to an ad for an improbably large, inexpensive Victorian apartment unit in New York. From the start, she's a little suspicious of what lies behind the complex, creviced spaces in the old building. She's a little unsettled by the atmosphere of the place and the things that go bump in the night.

    Then the film figuratively rewinds and we see the same progression of events from the stalker's point of view, from the point of view of the person who is in fact creating those unnerving little rustlings from the rafters, from behind the lathes of the apartment. We see how he originally crossed paths with the Doctor and how he launched his campaign to "get" her.

    It isn't a radically different perspective, but we catch more subtleties of angle and expression the second time around. The stalker, who comes across as being simply so handsome, so charmingly self-effacing in the first reel - expresses a more dangerous intensity in the re-play. We catch the flash of cold appraisal and calculation that crosses his face when Hilary Swank's back is turned. We understand the level of his peeping, peering obsession better.

    Although this situation is hardly novel in the suspense/thriller genre - these lead actors are so beautifully caressed by the camera, it would be a pleasure to see them in any context, acting out the flimsiest of plots. There are some beautifully sensuous nude scenes included as well.
