A tense, well-crafted action film (by CuriosityKilledShawn)
A bizarre mix of creative talents went in to making this movie. Not the kind of thing that happens too often these days. A script from Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, direction by Walter Hill and his usual gang strong editing from Freeman Davies, cool photography from Lloyd Ahern and score by Ry Cooder , Bill Paxton and William Sadler as the 'heroes' and Ice T and Ice Cube as the bad guys. It makes for a truly original movie.Much like Judgment Night, Trespass is about two worlds colliding after bystanders witness a gangland execution. Two firemen on a treasure hunt in a huge, long <more>
abandoned East St. Louis factory. This happens to be the same territory as King James Ice T and his cohorts. They off some unwise punk by chucking him thru the glass roof and are pretty mortified upon discovering Bill Paxton and William Sadler are watching them. Ice T's crippled brother is taken hostage by Sadler and they seal themselves in old apartment. Several other bad guys show up and totally box them in.What follows is a succession of stand-offs and shoot outs as Paxton and Sadler fight among themselves, T and Cube argue over who should be running the show, loyalties are challenged and each group begins to split into different factions. Stuck in the crossfire is poor old Bradlee, the innocent hobo caught in the middle as his apartment is besieged.There are no clear-cut 'good guys' and 'bad guys' in Trespass. Just a bunch of guys who all came to the wrong place at the wrong time.Originally called 'Looters' and scheduled for release during Summer 1992 the release date was changed to Winter and the title changed to 'Trespass'. Why? The LA riots were happening and Universal felt that there was enough racial tension in the media already. While I agree there is deliberate racism in this film it's nowhere near as bad as the morbidly extreme racism in such recent movies like Bad Boys II.This new release by Universal is much better than the pathetic and now OOP release by Goodtimes. Gone is the snapper case. In its place is a sturdy keepcase and a nice bundle of extras. First of all there are some deleted scenes, a Behind the Scenes of Trespass featurette, the Ice-T/Ice Cube Trespass music video it's the highly censored 'radio' edit and a trailer. It is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with Dolby 2.0 sound.You should definitely get this as it's not the standard of film Hollywood studios produce these days. IE made by talented people.
This is a film independent film makers should take a look at if action films are of any interest to them. Not for the seen-it-all, heard-it-all plot and profane dialogue, but for Walter Hill's staging and execution of the action. The film has a terrific pace to it and the camera always shows an interesting angle. The locations are at a minimum, very cost efficient and capably creating a claustrophobic atmosphere. Very well done. Good, moody music score, again, by the great Ry Cooder.
Nothing to object to or complain about (by hector-4)
The film based on the B. Traven story 'Treasure of Sierra Madre' already a 'one of the best films' by John Houston updates the story to a run down area of East St Louis. Virtually a single location and smallish cast. The dialogue is loaded 'f's' & 'm-f's' but is none the worse for that. Hill's refusal to give the characters any background beyon d a few basic facts, for example the treasure seekers are known to be firemen, allows the characterisation to develop before the viewers eyes. There are some extremely funny moments especially the ones <more>
involving mobile phones -something no modern gang member should be without it seems. I watched this film on TV and regret not having seen it originally in the cinema - if in fact that was possible where I live.
I have only ever seen this film at about 2-00 in the morning on late night T.V. but what a great show it was. Good action and adventure and a decent enough story for a low budget action flick. This was yet another average selling Bill Paxton film that was really good. For an actor that was outside the a-list, nearly every film he made was worth the watching and this is no exception. Definitely worth watching on T.V. although I don't know if it is the sort of film that you would pay to buy a copy of but if you come home after a night out and are looking for a film to watch to keep you <more>
going through the night, you could do worse than watch this.
For me, this low-budget thriller is one of the finest I've seen. There's little of the usual Hollywood thriller gimmicks. No big name actors bar a moonlighting rapper , no loud surprise bangs, no big set-piece stunt scenes, no unnecessary-and-obvious twists, and definitely no car chases. In fact, for an action thriller, there's really not much action Trespass could probably be done as a theatre piece . All of which equates to box-office failure and obscurity. Do not be put off; this is a great movie. Tight and claustrophobic, it oozes tension. The setup has 2 hicks-ville firemen <more>
chasing lost loot in a derelict New York tenement, and ending up under siege when they interrupt a drug-deal and take one of the dealers as a hostage . A stalemate ensues, but one that can't last. The direction is good, building tension and pace slowly. The characterisation and acting are nothing special, but considerably more interesting than the standard for a Hollywood thrillers.
Bill Paxton and that other white guy trapped in an abandoned factory with a who's who of early 90s rappers and African American actors. This movie is full of suspense. Yes, its a little cheesy, yes its contrived. So what, I say. Its awesome. Where else are you going to see Ice Cube, Ice T, Stony Jackson and more highly recognizable black actors going up against two crazy white boys well, one really crazy white boy and Bill Paxton ? Nowhere but here, baby. This movie has it all: rap music, gore, that old guy from Die Hard 2, rappers, more gore, shootouts, explosions, action, fights, <more>
swears, rap music. Its a classic. Both of the Ices put in great performances as do everyone else. It isn't the best movie ever, but if you were the kind of guy who put "Real A$$ Ni**a" by Ice T on mixtapes for girls you liked, this movie is for you.
This film is one you barely hear about which I think is a great shame as it's a great action film filled with superb performances. Vince Bill Paxton and Don William Sadler are a couple of New Orleans firemen who, in the process of tackling a blazing building find a crazed old man who hands them a possible treasure map before burning to death. Finding out it might be a fortune in gold stashed 50 years they set off for remote abandoned factory in East St Louis. Unfortunately, this also happens to be the same location Business man' King James Ice-T and his associates are taking <more>
care of some business'. Before they know it Vince and Don are trapped in a single room with no obvious means of escape, a hostage, Lucky, who happens to King James's little brother and a homeless man, Bradlee. Outside is the Association, who out-man and out-gun them, with no idea what a couple of white boys are doing on their turf. As the standoff continues the tension mounts between the two groups, especially with gang member Savon Ice Cube getting a rather itchy trigger finger. And what about the gold in all this?I love this film as it no pretension of being nothing else but a thrill ride. We know next to nothing about these characters, but that not important, as we don't need to. It moves at such a brisk pace with ever changing relationships dynamics that there is never a dull moment. An excellent cast of genre and character actors also helps. Paxton and Sadler are intense as the out-of-their-depths firemen, Sadler especially as the desperate and greedy Don. Ice-T is effective as King James, trying to resolve the situation without Lucky getting hurt. Ice Cube also shines in his supporting role. Surprisingly, this inner-city tale is loosely based on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre' and written by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, names you'd more normally associate with lighter fare. Just as well Walter Hill is directing, controlling the action with considerable skill as only a man with vast experience could do. And of course, it wouldn't be a Walter Hill film if I didn't a great Ry Cooder soundtrack which I'd love to get a hold of .
One of Walter Hills' most potent and entertaining films. (by Hey_Sweden)
Indeed, veteran action specialist Walter Hill "goes gangsta" in this stylized thrill ride. It blurs the lines between "good" guys and "bad" guys; the protagonists are not squeaky clean, and the antagonists are not purely one-dimensional - not all of them, anyway. An assortment of colorful characters and solid performances add to the entertainment value of a film that ultimately builds to a real fever pitch. The pacing is truly excellent, along with the atmosphere and the typically eclectic music score by Hills' old pal, Ry Cooder.Bill Paxton Rest in Peace, <more>
sir and William Sadler are Vince and Don, two Arkansas firemen who get wind that the treasure from a long ago church robbery has been socked away inside a now decrepit wreck of an apartment building. Wouldn't you know it: soon after Vince and Don arrive at the place, a gang of very tough black drug pushers arrive to use the place to execute a traitorous member of their crew. Vince witnesses the act, leading to a completely untenable situation where the main thing keeping Vince and Don alive is the fact that they've taken Lucky De'voreaux White, "Die Hard" , the younger brother of gang leader King James rapper / actor Ice-T , prisoner.While you don't necessarily root for any one team in particular, you do understand where certain characters are coming from. King James really does have genuine concern for his sibling, while Vince is a more naive and somewhat more reasonable person than Don, who's determined to have the trip be worth something. Drawn into the fray is a homeless man named Bradlee Art Evans, "Fright Night" who's been squatting in the building. Naturally, the whole argument comes up over who exactly has the most right to the gold.Particularly riveting are the dynamics between key characters, as both Vince & Don, and King James & his right hand man, Savon Ice Cube , argue over methodology.The action comes fast and furious, with Hill drawing us into one tense and effective sequence after another. The stunts and special effects are first rate, and the soundtrack, consisting of Cooders' score and a selection of rap tunes including a kick ass duet by Ice-T and Ice Cube , is consistently catchy. The mostly black cast includes some very solid character actors: Bruce A. Young "Jurassic Park III" , Glenn Plummer "Speed" , Stoney Jackson "Streets of Fire" , 'Tiny' Lister "Friday" , et al.It's a shame that this was actually a flop in its time. 25 years later, it still works quite well, with a finale that truly brings the house down.Written, and executive produced, by Bob Gale & Robert Zemeckis.Eight out of 10.
Violent and thoroughly entertaining thriller (by The_Void)
I really had no idea what to expect going into Trespass having never heard of it before catching it on TV - but having seen Bill Paxton's name flash up on screen, and having that followed up by The Warrior's director Walter Hill ensured that I would be watching it anyway. And I'm really glad I stuck with it because Trespass is a brilliantly entertaining modern day blaxploitation thriller with a heavy helping of strong violence and morally destitute macho characters. The plot is not particularly important, but certainly interesting nonetheless. We follow two Arkansas firemen who, <more>
having found out that a valuable stash of gold may be hidden in a factory in East St Louis, set off to claim it. However, upon arriving at the factory; they are soon joined by a group of black gangsters and end up witnessing one of them being killed. Naturally, the gangsters want the witnesses dead; but when the fireman manage to hole up in one of the factory's rooms; a standoff between the two groups ensues.The film is not completely devoid of themes or a point. Naturally the central point is the idea of blacks vs. whites, which adds in an element of controversy, and also we've got themes relating to greed emanating from the idea of the trespassers being in the factory to chase gold. These two do make the film slightly more interesting; although clearly the main focus of the film is on the violence and entertainment stemming from the violence, and that's what really ensures Trespass is successful. Director Walter Hill creates a thoroughly nasty atmosphere; helped along by the fact that not a single character has much more than a shred of decency. The acting is very good, with Bill Paxton providing the only thing like a hero and doing really well with the role. He gets good backup from William Sadler along with a handful of rappers including Ice T and Ice Cube. The film is engrossing for the duration and is not short on action. The way that much of it is focused in just one place ensures that we are able to get into the lead character's plight; even if we don't particularly like them. I was a bit worried that the soundtrack might be saturated with rap; but the director manages to keep this to a minimum which is definitely to the film's credit. Overall, Trespass is a very well done little thriller and one that I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
