I finished watching The neighbor a few minutes ago and as of now(September 2016) I am not able to find a Wikipedia page dedicated to this movie, while even worse movies have their own Wikipedia page. Anyway, I decided to watch this movie solely based on its IMDb rating. Ans was I pleasantly surprised! I felt this movie needs to be watched by more people which is why I decided to write a review.
The first few minutes made me think it was going to be one of those movies with disappointing endings. But at half hour past the beginning, things began to turn and the ride got more and more exciting.
Positives: - Does not have too much gore like many other thrillers have. But still keeps u at edge of seat.
Strong female characters who are not just there for skin show and they are the kind who don't need a male knight in shining armor to save them as in many other thriller movies.
Does not have moments where people torture each other or give a long speech before killing them(no wiggle room for someone who's at gunpoint)
All the characters are grey characters. Not completely good or bad. Gives us chance to think who we are rooting for.
Negatives: - Lacks character development which helps keep the movie shorter
Had a weak start which can seem boring to some people.
Overall, it's an enjoyable movie.
