By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 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

I am a JDM fan, therefore I feel it my duty to watch everything he has done. It took me a long time to watch this because I have a hard time buying Morgan as a stalker type and there were parts that were difficult to see. Even after watching, I still don't fully buy Morgan in this role the way I should, but I am glad I finally bit the bullet. Many people wrote that this was well-acted and well-shot. I agree. It's such a shame that they didn't take their time with this. Someone described Swank's character as one dimensional and it's true. I admire her loyalty to her relationship and even though it's hard to imagine turning down someone who appears to be as sweet and handsome as Morgan's character, Max, I did get it. Loyalty can really bind people. But there should have been more to show why she so easily went back to her cheating boyfriend. I mean it was easy to see how vulnerable she was, but there should have been some deeper discussion between them. It would have helped add some dimension to her character. The biggest missed opportunity was with Morgan's character and his grandfather. You got a superficial understanding about what messed up Max, but his behavior clearly has more behind it and it was left to the viewer to figure that out for themselves. You could see the grandfather had a lot under the surface that should have been explored more. I suppose the producers simply wanted us to be on the side of the victim, but how about giving me the full picture and leaving that up to me?

I am a big Jeffry Dean Morgan fan and I normally love Hilary Swank, but this film was so implausible that neither could make it work. How many of us have spaces in our walls so wide we can walk around in them and peek in at people? It was beneath these two fine actors to make a silly film like 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.
