Consensus: Trespass pits public servants against gangsters in a race for stolen loot -- and thanks to a killer cast and Walter Hill's assured direction, the audience wins.

TIME Magazine

There's something bracing about the utter amorality of Trespass.

Time Out

For the undemanding, it may seem a fair stand-off; but compared to Hill's best work, it's merely a jerk-off.

Film Frenzy

Entertainment Weekly

In a season dominated by bloated blockbuster wannabes, it's easy to respond to the lean-and-mean B-movie pleasures of Trespass.

Vincent Canby
New York Times

Everything in the screenplay seems arbitrary, including the firefighting jobs assigned to the two would-be treasure-seekers. They could as easily be magazine salesmen or amateur songwriters.

Directed by Walter Hill, written by Robert Zemeckis, starring Bill Paxton, Ice Cube, Ice T, and Bill Sadler. Don't mind if I do.
Dean McKenna
This violent thriller suffers from poor characterisation and an uninspiring plot.
Alexander Wilson
I remember watching this on tv a long time ago in school. Staying up late and not watching everything as I fell asleep. Great film then, not sure about now.
