>>“The Boy Next Door,” one of the first thrillers to hit the big screen in 2015. It is a film in which suspense meets intimacy. Lead role, Claire Peterson, played by Jennifer Lopez, is a single mother of a teenage son and a high school English teacher. Claire doesn’t seem quite happy with her broken life, but then she sleeps with her next-door neighbor, Noah Sandborn, played by Ryan Guzman, and her previously broken life seems uncomplicated compared to the one she is living now. The last 10 minutes are very action-filled and more suspenseful than the previous scenes and will make you wish the rest of the movie were that exciting. The film wasn’t all I had hoped for. Although the suspense was there, I was hoping for much more of the “sitting on the edge of your seat” factor that was greatly missed. I was expecting more of a thrilling movie experience than an intimate one. Be sure to watch for this movie to be released on DVD.
