  • Release Date: 01/20/2004
  • Rating: R
Maverick director Walter Hill, who had a big hit with 48 Hrs., indulges his customary yen for violent and disturbing scenes in this overlooked action film, which was also released under the name Looters. Set in the economically-depressed town of East St. Louis, IL, the film's release was delayed several months because its riot scenes were too similar to those that actually took place in the summer of 1992 in L.A. Bill Paxton plays Vince and Bill Sadler plays Don. They are a couple of good-old-boy firefighters who are tipped off that some stolen gold treasures have been hidden in an old warehouse. They find and enter the building but witness a brutal murder. The gangland killing is part of a turf battle between two rival drug lords. When one of them finds out that the firemen have seen the execution, he orders the witnesses murdered. But they have found the treasure and have kidnapped one gang leader's brother. An elaborate and violent series of skirmishes and chases ensue. Rapper-actors Ice-T and Ice Cube have roles as leading gang members.

    Great picture and blu ray extra features. Thank you to Shout factory for giving this forgotten classic a proper blu ray release. Walter Hill's Trespass was one of those lost 90s movies that was underappreciated and perhaps a little before its time. Great to see a pre-Law and Order Ice-T in top form aided by Ice Cube and brilliant performances from the late Bill Paxton and Bill Sadler.

    I brought this movie cause it has Ice Cube and Ice T both in the same movie so I thought that was pretty cool and the movie wasn't that bad I liked it and I think it's worth a shot to check out as well enjoy.

    This movie is edgy and dramatic. Bill Paxton and Ice Tea didn't disappoint. I remember this movie, being intense and holding my interest, from when I watched it, "back in the day", so I wanted to get it for my video library. It's always interesting to watch Ice Tea from "back in the day", he was edgy.

    Great underrated 90's action film starring the late great Bill Paxton, William Sadler & a young ice cube! Never a dull moment, action packed and fast paced until the end! Definitely worth checking out this hidden gem of the 90's.

    Pretty good action film that stars (the late) Bill Paxton and a pre-Law & Order SVU, Ice-T. The film is a pretty decent action film but Walter Hills action films always see to have that extra special quality

    I'm a big Walter hill fan and this was always one of my favorites. Bill Paxton and William Sadler awesome as always and some earlier cube and tea acting. Just a fun movie.

    This was a pretty simple plot, but a very entertaining movie with a lot of star power...before they were big names. Fun popcorn movie that has rewatchability.
