Rating: PG-13 Stars: Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Dennis Quaid, Joseph Sikora Writer: David Loughery Director: Deon Taylor Distributor: Screen Gems/Sony Release Date: May 3, 2019 THE INTRUDER is a thriller with a premise so improbable that you’ll likely forgive every plot glitch you’ve seen lately in comparison.

Michael Chiklis is in the set that is the office of his VEGAS character, casino owner, businessman and gangster Vincent Savino. Looking out the office window, one can see the entire casino floor, which looks exactly like what it’s meant to be – an opulent Las Vegas casino circa 1960 – rather than a set on a soundstage in Santa Clarita,California.
