On "Lakeview Terrace"

From The Dispatch:
“Lakeview Terrace” is a serviceable film that aspires to be a multilayered exploration of racial themes, but never quite coalesces into a satisfying whole. And while this is by no means a heinous crime against cinema, it is indicative of a larger “dumbing down” trend in American cinema, which takes weighty material and saddles it with lame, unnecessary action. The ending would quite honestly be a joke if the rest of the film had been any weaker.

Wow, just in that paragraph you nail everything that works and doesn't in LT. I had about the same impression as you - a somewhat wasted opportunity.
