Lakeview Terrace Trailer with Sam Jackson
After destroying Nic Cage's career in The Wicker Man in 2006, filmmaker Neil LaBute is bringing us yet another depressing look at society. Titled Lakeview Terrace, the movie stars Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Wilson as feuding neighbors in an upscale California neighborhood. Wilson plays the husband in a newly wed interracial marriage and Jackson plays a stern, single father, who has appointed himself the watchdog of the neighborhood. His nightly foot patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort to some, but he becomes increasingly harassing to the newlyweds. These persistent intrusions into their lives ultimately turn tragic when the couple decides to fight back.
This looks like nothing more than a mediocre movie made by mediocre writers and a bad director. I wish I could say more, but that's my complete impression from this trailer.
