Cape Fear

Robert De Niro is horrifying in his role as an ex-con looking for revenge on the lawyer that failed to keep him out of prison. I was surprised however to find out that Martin Scorsese directed the film. The black and white negative spots littered throughout just don't work for me.

A good movie

I had already seen this movie but since it was ages ago and since I had this movie on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. I mean, if you would compare it to all the garbage Robert De Niro is making nowadays or any average thriller coming from Hollywood, it is actually pretty dammed entertaining but if you would compar... read more

In general I avoid seeing remakes of classics, but when the name "Martin Scorsese" is plastered all over the poster even I cannot resist the urge to check it out. I'm glad I did, because Scorsese's version of Cape Fear is extremely well-done. The direction is simply flawless and elevates the outstanding performances by Nolte, De Niro and Lewis.
It does however become glaringly obvious that i... read more

A good movie

“I had already seen this movie but since it was ages ago and since I had this movie on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. I mean, if you would compare it to all the garbage Robert De Niro is making nowadays or any average thriller coming from Hollywood, it is actually pretty dammed entertaining but if you would compare it to the great masterpieces involving Scorsese and De Niro, it was definitely a minor effort. I mean, sure, the directing was really solid and it was a great reminder that De Niro used to be one of the best actors in the world as he gave here such an intense performance. While watching this flick, I was also impressed by Juliette Lewis who was really convincing even though she was just about 18” read more

"01.01. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Martin Scorsese Tän suomenkielinen nimi pitäis ehdottomasti olla Pelkosenniemi. Kelpo leffa. Scorsesen kuvia on kiva katsella, ja ensimmäinen puolisko etenee varsin soljuvasti. Robert De Niron päätön roolisuoritus ja hahmo myös viihdyttää aika helvetisti. Tykkään myös 50-lukulaisesta tunnelmasta takavalaistuksineen ja Bernard Herrmann -musiikkeineen. Valitettavasti homma kompastuu omaan mahdottomuutensa suunnilleen niihin aikoihin, kun Max C"

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

"Through the power of an extreme work-out regimen and a torso-full of tatts, DeNiro reaches the kind of potential of a really creepy villain that I always thought he possessed. And yeah, I know he's played bad guys in other films, but in Cape Fear, he proves that he can take the role to the down-scary end of the spectrum. With a little directorial help by a certain partner-in-cinema-crime with the initials Martin Scorcese, of course. "
