Alright BUT very predictable,
This review is from: The Resident (DVD)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Resident could have been great if it wasn't so predictable. To me what makes a great horror/thriller film is that it is unpredictable. I could guess almost every single thing that was going to happen in this movie BEFORE it happened which I hate. Hilary Swank plays a character who is an ER doctor in search of an apartment. She finds the ideal place that is afforable and has a hot landlord who really cares about his tenants. Once she moves someone starts watching/stalking her but who could it be? You see Hillary's character going through the same routine every night which is boring. Also it doesn't take long for the movie to let you know exactly who it is which is an EPIC FAIL!!
These are the reasons that this movie falls really short:
1. Very predictable
2. The movie trailer gives away almost everything
3. The stalker is unreveiled too early in the movie
If you have a free evening The Resident isn't a horrible movie to watch but I can find a lot better movies instead. I watched it once and that was enough. It is very forgetable not to mention (again) predictable.
