      Samuel L. Jackson: either on the right side of the law, or the wrong one. It appears that in Lakeview Terrace his character finds himself with a foot firmly in both camps. When an inter-racial couple move in next door, the disapproving Jackson, widowed father of two, takes it upon himself to do everything in his (abuse of) power to rid himself of his new neighbours. One tangle leads to another, with tension between both neighbours building up to the film's somewhat predictable denoument. There are lighter moments along the way, but the film really engages when the begrudged Jackson turns on his trademark, imposing, angered persona. The nature of some of the altercations give the film plausablility but it could have exploited the full potential of the situation to enable Jackson to harrass on a higher level. Lacking the thrills and suspense associated with similar 'home invasion' movies, such as Pacific Heights, Lakeview Terrace is a worthwhile watch, but does leave you wondering if Jackson, like Danny Glover's Lethal Weapon cop is, 'getting too old for this s**t!'
