Despite what it looks like at first glance, Intrusion is not a home-invasion thriller. But what it turns out to be doesn't look much better.
Freida Pinto and Logan Marshall-Green – the latter trying as hard as possible not to be confused for Tom Hardy anymore – star as Meera and Henry, an ultra-wealthy couple with a high-tech mansion. One night, their power cuts out and Henry shoots the intruder dead. He's fine but she's not. Her restlessness leads her to start digging into Henry's business, turning up all sorts of suspicious activity.
Pinto sadly has not had much success since her debut film (Slumdog Millionaire) won Best Picture, and Marshall-Green has only fared slightly better. While I'm always happy to see them get work, this looks like another forgettable Netflix thriller, with little intrigue or suspense. I would love to be proven wrong.
Intrusion premieres exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, September 22.
